1986 Eclectique by Les Bains Guerbois
100ml Eau de Parfum

Night time. A procession of taxis. Amber lights. Car doors slam shut.

At the foot of the stoop of Les Bains, they stir, and cluster. Leather jackets, double-breasted suits, ripped jeans, endless necklines, eighteen, thirty, sixty year olds.

Presiding over the stairs, Marylin selects. Who will she take from the street to create the eclectic tribe inside the wildest Parisian nightclub? Hearts beat.

“Come in, yes, you. Enjoy your evening. Not you. It’s not gonna happen tonight.”

You climb the steps, and then descend the arena. Light touches. Mingling of cardamom, black pepper, tobacco, musk, patchouli, amber, clove, geranium, honey. Exhilaration. The night is ours.

Head Notes – Davana, Apple, Mandarin, Cardamom, Black pepper
Heart Notes – Clove, Broom, Geranium, Honey
Base Notes – Tobacco, Opopanax, Oak moss, Maté, Musc, Amber, Patchouli

Bertrand Duchaufour unveils his second creation for Les Bains Guerbois, 1986 Eclectique, reviving the mixed and sexy crowd willing to enter in one of the wildest night club in the world.

1986 Eclectique relates to the mystery surrounding the sensual and warm atmosphere of Les Bains’ nightlife at that time. It is a sophisticated, modern and sweet perfume with a vintage touch thanks to very qualitative ingredients.“
– Bertrand Duchaufour

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 Star 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 revamped their perfume bottle, a new version in 100ml with gold engraving.
