The perfume capital of the world, grasse, had fallen into a period of some decline, many of the areas where the plants used in the various perfume processes were grown, had become overgrown and were untended. Now, the perfume industry in Grasse is experiencing a revival and many of the traditional fields are being planted with beautifully fragrant flowers and plants which will be used in perfumes and other scented beauty products.
