Damier by Les Bains Guerbois is one of the first fragrances created for the Formes et Matières Collection. This unique niche fragrance is a contrast in light and dark, a checkerboard of ingredients — from the subtly earthy blend of pepper and patchouli to the lactonic combination of milk, sandalwood and white musk.
From Les Bains Guerbois
Lending scent to materials, a color to vowels, entangling emotions. Stirring the senses. Moving, dancing, playing, pursuing on the giant checkerboard at Les Bains Paris. A mythical place. A trail of perfume. Dance floors. Playgrounds. A treasure hunt. Small tiles, large squares, black and white diagonals. Kinetic impressions. Sharp, dark and spicy head notes of black pepper contrast with a generous white base of musky, milky sandalwood.
Black block: black pepper, pink pepper, patchouli
White block: milky harmony, sandalwood, white musk
Les Bains Guerbois on the Formes et Matières Collection
The Formes et Matières Collection is a feast of shapes, patterns, and materials seen and felt at 7 rue du Bourg l’Abbé in Paris’ 3rd arrondissement. Three fragrances — Raku, Damier and Oud Lacque — exemplify the inimitable personality of this historic place since 1885. They hypnotize, stimulate, inspire, invigorate, and soothe; their evocative poetry rouses revery, contentment, well-being, excitement, joy, and a thousand other emotions.
