FLOWER FES­TI­VAL

Living France - - Découvrez -

If you’re lucky enough to visit the small Provençal town of Grasse in the sum­mer months, you’ll be in­stantly se­duced by the sweet scent of jas­mine, one of the key in­gre­di­ents for the town’s fa­mous per­fume in­dus­try. The fra­grant flower is spe­cial here all year round but for three days in Au­gust it takes pride of place for the an­nual Fête du Jas­min. From 5-7 Au­gust, the town cel­e­brates the start of the jas­mine har­vest sea­son with an event filled with pa­rades, fire­works, flower stalls and danc­ing, while one lucky girl will be crowned ‘Miss Jas­mine’ on the fi­nal day. ville-grasse.fr
