The Candle by Les Bains Paris
190g Scented Candle
Olfactive Signature – Woody Incense
Dorothée Piot reinterprets the provocative spirit that echoed through the ages in this cult Parisian hotel with a mixture of venerable tradition and très Parisienne sophistication. Plunging headfirst into a spicy blend of cardamom and saffron, ‘The Candle’ opens onto a woody heart of papyrus and Atlas cedar – brightened by a fresh floral note of violet – before softening against a background of wild leather, frankincense and Tonka bean absolute.
The owner of Les Bains wanted a scented candle synonymous with the hotel – inspired by his love for church incense.
Burning time 55 – 60 hours
Made in France
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.
