The album proved to be one of her least successful efforts, with none of the singles reaching the No. 1 spot in France as anticipated. However, it is notable because American actor Johnny Depp performed on some of the tracks. It also marks the recording debut of Lily Rose Depp, Johnny and Vanessa's daughter, as she is featured on one track. Fans also note Bliss for its extensive artwork, all of which was hand-painted by Vanessa and Johnny, with use of watercolors.
Despite a weak chart run, Bliss spawned a few minor hit singles. The primary one was "Pourtant", which is often regarded as Paradis' most poetic work. Singles "Commando" and "Que fait la vie" were the other single releases from the album.
The album topped the French Albums Chart and spent 49 weeks on the chart.
