NEW: 1986 Éclectique From Les Bains Guerbois

The French house Les Bains Guerbois (connected with the legendary temple of Parisian nightlife in the 1980s) just launched their new perfume 1986 Éclectique, a fragrance composed by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, in an homage to Marilyn, the mythical "physio" of Les Bains. It was Marilyn who decided at the door who could join the eclectic crowd inside the club.  "Dominating from the top of ...

Cauterets – Snowboarding Holiday in the French Pyrenees

A snowboarding holiday in the French Pyrenees is a unique experience, and Cauterets is as far away from the commercialism of the French Alps as you can get. Cauterets can easily be reached by flying out to Lourdes from Stanstead, but I was travelling with fellow journalist Luke Reec from AWE365 and it was more convenient for us to fly to Tolouse from Heathrow. Once there we picked up our hire car and started our road trip with a three hour drive down to Cauterets. We started making headway sout...

Les Bains

In my hard partying disco days of the late 70s/early 80s in New York, I frequented the clubs Studio 54, Xenon and Area. When I came to Paris during those years I went to a club in an area I had never been before, the Marais. It was Les Bain Douches, a former bathhouse from the late 1800s which was transformed into a nightclub, bar and disco. I remember how fun it was and the coolest thing was they had a swimming pool in the basement. Les Bains Douches was the hotspot during that period with c...

It’s Back! Les Bain Douches Nightclub

New York City had Studio 54, and Paris had its own era-defining, decadent club, Les Bains Douches. The location that served as Paris’ first public baths, in 1885, and counted Marcel Proust among its regulars, was converted into a nightclub in 1978. The pool remained from the former bathhouse and over the next two decades an impressive roster of regulars came by to dip in their toes – or in many cases, dive right in. Iggy Pop, David Bowie, a young Kate Moss & Johnny Depp, Mick Jagger and countles...

A weekend guide to Le Havre: delicious food and culture in Normandy

Most people in Britain think of Le Havre as a place to get off the ferry and drive straight on to their holiday in France. For the French however, it’s a sailor’s heaven, a seaside resort for families and a gateway to the Alabaster Coast, with the translucent light so loved by the Impressionist painters. On my weekend in Le Havre I discovered there’s a lot more to this UNESCO World Heritage site than meets the eye and with daily ferries from Portsmouth on Brittany Ferries, it’s ideal for a weeke...
