Enterprise and Discovery: go behind the scenes of French savoir-faire

France and savoir-faire are practically synonyms—from crystal to perfume to fine leather goods, French know-how is recognized the world over. Pull back the curtain and see how these jewels of French enterprise come to be!

Van Cleef & Arpels, Breton knits from Saint-James, Fragonard perfume—to know (and use!) French goods is to love them. Beloved globally for their luxury-feel and their manifest high quality, travelers can go behind the scenes and experience how some of these wonders are made.
