Hailed as the perfume capital of the world, Grasse in southern Provence is said to produce over two-thirds of France's natural aromas. And, as you would imagine, the air in this idyllic old town is filled with the scent of flowers - particularly jasmine and mimosa. There's even an International Museum of Perfume. The town itself is full of interesting streets, arcaded tunnels and squares full of life. Keep an eye out for the daily market. There's also the Cathedral, the main attraction for Grasse, which is well worth exploring. August is festival time in Grasse. The Fete du Jasmin sees floats driving through town throwing flowers into the crowds. Known as the 'flower battle,' onlookers get soaked by their natural perfume. There's also fireworks and dancing. For something slightly different, visit the caves and grottos built into the porous limestone hills north of Grasse - most of them 4km north rising up to the Plateau de Caussols.
