Created by living legend, perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, 1978 Les Bains Douches by Les Bains Guerbois opens with a cocktail-like blend of yuzu, bitter orange, whiskey and soft spice. The rose-infused drydown drifts on a slightly powdery cloud of tobacco, vanilla, musk and amber.
From Les Bains Guerbois
Paris 1978 and another endless night In one of the world’s wildest nightclubs. Follow its powdery scent. Downstairs it’s a Negroni Yuzu for her and a Whisky Sage for me. Ribbons of tobacco smoke weave their magic. Leaning on the cedar wood bar, I watch her moving on the dance floor. Wafts of myrrh, vanilla, patchouli and oriental rose go to my head. Though I close my eyes for a second, the Bains Douches never sleeps.
