The Perfume Museum in Bucharest is the initiative of entrepreneur Val Iacob, the owner of Beautik Haute Parfumerie. It hosts an impressive collection, including the favorite perfume of Queen Marie of Romania, Wall-street.ro reported.
The museum opened in December 2014 as a private cultural initiative, born out of Val Iacob’s passion for perfumes.
“We opened the museum starting from the Mon Boudoir bottle of perfume, the favorite of Queen Marie. In time we gathered thousands of exhibits, some very rare,” Iacob told Wall-street.ro.
Besides the collection of perfumes, the museum also hosts various cosmetics items, perfume bottle openers, herbaria, and Romanian perfumes of various periods, such as those of local brands Macul Rosu, Farmec or Miraj.
