Café Culturel - Grasse, capitale mondiale du parfum (Grasse, world's capital of perfume) - PART 2

Tuesday May 13th @ 6pm

Grasse, located in the French region called Provence-Côte d'Azur, has had a prospering perfume industry since the end of the 18th century. Grasse is the center of the French perfume industry and is known as the world's perfume capital. We will learn some historical and current facts about Grasse in two sessions.

Part 1 will cover geography, climate, native flowers, and history (how Grasse became a place of choice for perfume fabrication). 

Part 2 will cover: from the plant to the bottle, who are the professionals in the manufacture of perfume, how do they make perfume? Industrial development, globalization of the perfume industry, tourism, industrial mutations, etc. We will also learn about the city of Grasse today.

This is an online presentation in English, by our speaker and Alliance Française de Denver teacher, Edwige Wagner.

Each session will last about one hour and will be followed by a discussion.  

Participants will be invited on ZOOM.

I'd like to start this off by thanking you for teaching me so much French. You were a great teacher and you helped me learn so many new things. I'd also like to apologize for missing a lot of lessons, although I'm sure that I would've rather gone to them. Again, you are the best teacher I've ever had, and it's sad to say goodbye to you.

Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home.

A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills.

Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this "old dog" to learn new tricks, but we could not go slower. It has been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.

A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?
