Buly 1803 Garance Dore

When we were in Paris, we went to take a look at Buly, the sublime boutique created by Ramdane Touhami and Victoire de Taillac.

It certainly takes you by surprise – you feel like you’ve suddenly entered an old fashioned pharmacy, and you’d be right. Ramdane based the design on a 17th-century dispensary, and he worked with artisans to create the shop using techniques from the period.

The idea came from Ramdane and Victoire’s passion for 19th century literature – Balzac and Zola, and also because that was the time when cosmetics and beauty products as we know them today were invented.

They have 8 main scents that are carried in their soaps, lotions, perfumes and their super unique scented matches. All of the products are made with simple, natural formulas and come in traditional glass bottles. The large glass jars behind the counter are used like ancient beauty secrets, given to you in small doses to mix in with the smaller more basic formulas. The plant-based hand lotion is very rich and even great for feet. And the soap may never be used because its too pretty, but functions just as well as a beautiful object.

The results are exciting and you can’t leave the boutique without taking something home. We thought you might like to take a little tour of the shop with us!!!!
