1992 Purple Night – Imagine Prince comes to Les Bains in a limousine. The rumours precede him. Crowds outside, just as crowded inside. He has dinner, no rush, then goes down to the club, leaving a strong trail of heady perfume.
Tuberose, Tonka Bean, Patchouli and woody amber. He climbs onstage just for fun. A concert? Total Magic. It is raining sounds, colours, scents. How many artists, how many dreamlike moments came to life that year at Les Bains?
Head Notes – Calabrian Mandarin
Heart Notes – Indian Tuberose, Egyptian Jasmine
Base Notes – Tobacco Accord, Suede Accord, Indonesian Patchouli
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.
