Original Caron Royal Bain de Champagne used in Original Box
Royal Bain de Caron (Royal Bath of Caron) was originally created under the name Bain de Champagne (Champagne Bath) in 1923. In 1941 the name was legally changed to that of Royal Bain de Champagne (Royal Champagne Bath).
There was a legal battle over the use of the name "Champagne" in 1993 which arose in fact around the time of the launch of Champagne by Yves Saint Laurent (now renamed Yvresse). This had a ripple effect on the more discrete fragrance created 70 years earlier by the house of Caron which under the circumstances could not be ignored anymore by legal parties involved in the dispute over the YSL fragrance. The name was thus changed a second time to the current one, Royal Bain de Caron.
