A visit to the museum is an absolute must do, Mrs Kumanov provides educational information while keeping the visit light and fun. One cannot miss a visit to the perfume museum while in Franschhoek.

As a perfume lover of note, this was a BEAUTIFUL, unrushed experience. With a dainty tray of coffee and nibbles in hand, an extensive explanation about Kumanov's perfume oils and the world of perfume in general followed. This took place in one of the delightful front rooms and then, under Daniela's expert guidance, I got to create my own perfumes (my husband who accompanied me, was happy to let me use his option) and I LOVE them. With my perfume oil references safely stored on my cellphone, I can arrange for my exact blends to be forwarded to me in the future. I will definitely visit again when next in Franschhoek. Thank You Daniela, for this unique and unforgettable experience.
