It’s been quite a few days since I first entered the space of L’Officine Universelle Buly. There is no need to say how badly I felt in love with their universe -- the most beautiful apothecary in Paris.

La Maison Bully opened its doors in 1803, in the elegant Rue Saint-Honoré. They have the most refined selection of beauty products: a signature pommade concrète hand cream, handmade soaps, dried peony petals for the bathtub, marble candles, essential oils, the watercolor painted ceramic bottles of water-based perfumes and soaps, all made in the tradition of nineteenth-century craftsmanship, and everything carefully presented with a touch of Parisian savoir-faire.


“Each item is exquisitely packaged, and can be gift-wrapped and personalized with decorative hand-written calligraphy free of charge.”


Victoire de Taillac et Ramdane Touhami have réinventé, modernized and carefully resurrected the French old fashioned pharmacy. Jean-Vincent Buly was the inventor of la lotion de toilette vinaigrée somewhere around two hundred years ago. The “Vinaigre de Bully”, a patented aromatic lotion created to "perform ablutions and preserve skin tone", earned a flattering reputation across Europe.

The place is made of all the perfect details that transports you instantly into a XIXe siècle parfume boutique: all the bottles perfectly aligned, rare marbres, and crafted wood office furniture for displays. To achieve the 17th-century dispensary ambiance Touhami worked with artisans to create the shop using techniques from the period.

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
