The beautifully scented French town of Grasse is located just north of Cannes. It is unofficially regarded as the perfume capital of the world and birthplace of many fragrances. The obvious thing to do in this city, where you wake up and smell the roses, is to visit one of the three perfumeries available to tour. If that is not enough, make sure to visit farms where sweet-smelling flowers are harvested for fragrances.

When exploring the Côte d’Azure, make sure not to miss out on Menton. A lemon-scented town in the South of France. This is one of the last stops before arriving in Italy which explains its pastel colors. Enjoy the lovely beaches and make sure to visit one of the lemon gardens. There is a lemon festival held at the end of each winter (mid February – early March).
