IPBA IPBA Museum Collection: Space in the Case

IPBA collection

We need your help and donations to grow our IPBA Museum Collection. We are inviting YOU, our Members, to donate to our wonderful collection. No donation is too small!

Today, the IPBA Museum Collection is housed in the IPBA Library at Perfume Passage. It is a great privilege and opportunity to showcase our IPBA Museum Collection to people from around the world who come to visit the museum complex. We are fulfilling our Mission which is “to provide information about aspects of perfume bottles and related vanity items, including their uses, history, manufacture and significance, to promote collecting perfume bottles and vanity items, and to promote fellowship among its members.”

We now have a Museum Curator,
Sally Berger,
and have streamlined the donation process.

We currently have 3 cases, and the sky is the limit as to how many we can have.
