Bijan has been married twice. His first wife was Sigi Pakzad a Swiss-German whom he met while living in Europe in the 1960s; they had one daughter, Daniela Pakzad and divorced when she was 17. His second wife was Irish-Japanese interior designer and model Tracy Hayakawa; they married in 1986 and divorced in 1995. They had two children together: Nicolas Bijan and Alexandra. She later remarried businessman David H. Murdock.
On April 14, 2011, Bijan suffered a stroke and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He had brain surgery but never recovered and died two days later on April 16, 2011 at 8:05 am. Public records indicate he was 71. He was survived by his three children.
Bijan's store in Rodeo Drive was sold to LVMH for US$122 million in August 2016.
Bijan's fragrances for both men and women are known for their distinctive circular glass flacon with an open center and a dividing web. When half full, the fragrance fills two separate chambers, seemingly defying the law of gravity that liquid seeks its own level.
