A LEGACY ETCHED IN STONE AT 7 RUE DU BOURG L'ABBÉ, PARIS 3E
Les Bains Guerbois perfumes capture the quintessence of a free, avant-garde, chic Paris through one of its most iconic addresses. The inspiration for our fragrances? A famous place – our place. First a spa, then a night club, then a hotel, it’s a place that could tell a thousand stories. A place of celebration, of well-being, and legend that continuously reinvents itself to embody the creative, glamorous, and festive side of Paris. And has for almost 140 years.
Founded in 1885 by Auguste Guerbois, Les Bains Guerbois quickly became a 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 which was an artists and celebrities hang out for a quarter of a century.
In 2015, movie producer and heir of the place, Jean-Pierre Marois, transformed it into a 5* boutique hotel, Les Bains Hotel and revived its club and Spa along the way.
In 2016, he reinvented Les Bains Guerbois by launching a first signature Cologne and a perfumed candle, ” Atmosphère ”. In 2018, he launched an award winning Eaux de Parfum collection Une date, Une histoire. Each fragrance is an olfactive journey to a specific year and story of Les Bains Guerbois rich past of almost 140 years.
In 2022, he launched the Formes & Matières collection, a synchronous, multisensory exploration of the premises. The first fragrances are Oud Laqué, Damier and Raku.
Our Bacchus, the god of wine and festivity in ancient times, echoes the sculpted face that has watched over our entrance since 1885. With him, two sirens inspired by the torch-bearing statues flanking the front steps, their tails enlaced in the ancient god’s beard and each holding a flame like the twins of Liberty.
Strength, energy, wisdom, delicacy, sensuality, fluidity, intoxication, and liberty – an offering from these three mythological creatures made to you the moment you cross the threshold of Les Bains Guerbois and take in their scents. May the gods be with you.
“Les Bains Guerbois is an adventure that fascinates me. Straddling over three centuries, it has caught its breath like never before. A breath where exquisite and original scents mingle thanks to these great perfumers whom we invited since 2018 to translate the major dates of our house into fragrances. An eclectic, powerful and unique Parisian story.”
