1986 Eclectique by Les Bains Guerbois shines the spotlight on languidly sexy honied amber and sweet dried fruits, center stage. Swirls of spice and a touch of citrus add light to the dark, dreamy base of leather, tobacco, oakmoss, patchouli and musk. Another beauty from the revered perfumer, Bertrand Duchaufour.
From Les Bains Guerbois
Nighttime. 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, Marilyn 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.
