1979 New Wave – Another night at Bains Douches, another young English band onstage. The charismatic lead singer close to a trance. A legendary performance.

A small enthusiastic crowd, girl and boys riding waves of emotions, sounds, of fragrances melding together yet distinct. Spearmint, peppermint, orris, woody cedar, sandalwood. New Romantics. Is this a dark or cheerful view of the world – could be both?

Founded in 1885, by François Auguste Guerbois, the Spa Les Bains Guerbois quickly became the Parisian temple of beauty and well-being, where artists such as, Manet, Monet, Zola, Renoir, Proust and high society meet.

In 1978 the establishment, renamed Les Bains Douches, became one of the most famous nightclubs in the world.

In 2015, Les Bains was transformed into a 5* boutique hotel and revived its club and Spa along the way.

Jean-Pierre Marois, the heir of the place, reinvented Les Bains Guerbois by launching a first signature Cologne and a perfumed candle in 2016. A body care collection followed the year after.

Since 2017, an Eau de Parfum collection has been launched with perfumers Michel Almairac, Dominique Ropion, Fanny Bal, Bertrand Duchaufour, Jérôme Epinette and Dorothée Piot. Each fragrance is an olfactive journey to a specific year and story of its rich past of more than 135 years.

Les Bains Guerbois is presented in a beautiful hand blown vessel with gold engraving.
