Farina Fragrance Museum in Cologne Admission Ticket
  • Farina Fragrance Museum in Cologne Admission Ticket

    Enjoy a visit at the Fragrance Museum Farina-House and see where the success story of Eau de Cologne began 300 years ago in Cologne. In 1709 Johann Maria Farina invented the most famous water in the world and this classy perfume is still made today by the same family in the same house.

    Visit: Duftmuseum im Farina-Haus, Obenmarspforten 21, 50667 Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia Germany

    The perfumer Johann Maria Farina named the famous fragrance after his chosen place of residence: Eau de Cologne. This founded the success of the Farina perfume dynasty. In the 18th century no patent rights existed and many copycat versions of the perfume quickly appeared on the market. Due to these incidents, the Eau de Cologne is designated today as a perfume category. Art related artifacts, photos, and furniture are evidence of the worldwide connections to the Farina perfume dynasty. You can smell a variety of different essences at the museum. Detailed descriptions from the extraction of essences to the development of perfumes from flowers, for example clearly convey the effort, creativity, and irrefutable talent of this perfumer.

    The general guided museums tour (in English) leads you down the stairs and into the original arched cellar where the fragrance has been produced for about 300 years. A barrel made of cedar from the time of the company’s founding has withstood the test of time can also be seen. The replica of a still, just like the one Johann Maria Farina would have used in the 18th century concretely shows the complicated art of distillation. Photos show the development of perfume production over the last 300 years.

      I had no idea of the history of Eau de Cologne and the links to the city. It was not only an insightful tour, but as a perfume lover it was wonderful to have the chance to learn the different notes etc in the process.

      This was an interesting tour. It was well-narrated. It was nice to receive a little sample bottle of cologne.

      The tour is pretty informational and the price is fair with a free sample of 5ml original perfume. Good to know that #4711is not the same as Farina.

        Calificación General: 6/10
