  • Description

    This dry oil is a perfect nectar for the skin. Composed of three natural plant oils, it possesses a cumulative beneficial effect: the more you use it, the more the skin transforms due to its shaping and moisturizing effects. Sesame oil is a unique treasure: it was the world’s first vegetable extract in Mesopotamia, 3,500 years ago. It has softening qualities and is extremely easily absorbed. Fortified with antioxidants – Vitamin E, lecithin and sesamolin – it protects the skin against ageing. As for apricot oil, it strengthens the skin’s hydrolipidic layer and prevents dehydration. Finally, in this protective trio, come coconut oil, which softens, tones, and restores unparalleled radiance, thanks to the presence of Vitamins E, K and its rich iron content.  

    In 1834, Jean-Vincent Buly added Huile Antique to his beauty catalogue, inspired by Ancient Greek cosmetic practices and restorative skincare from thermal baths. This treatment, highly popular at the beginning of the 19th century, when there was a vogue for all things evoking Antiquity, was reinvented and brought up to date by the Officine.



    Al Kassir is the scent of Oriental shores as 19th-century scholars dreamt them and explorers found them: At the heart of the perfume lies sandalwood, a sacred tree in India and in the Middle East for millennia: a ‘gift from the gods’, believed to stimulate the opening of the third eye chakra. In Ancient Egypt, sandalwood was a key component of Kyphi, or Kapet, a sacred fragrance used to honour Sun god Râ. 

    Like the riches buried in the Valley of the Kings, Eau Triple Al Kassir invites us to possession. An intoxicating and sumptuous parade, led by cardamom, the most beloved of oriental spices, cinnamon, ginger, clove, and highlighted by the fresh rosy touch of geranium, the voluptuous roundness of patchouli and sensual hints of osmanthus flower, flamboyant with honey and leather.  

    Now we are approaching the inner sanctum of the gods, with supremely mystical, precious resins and woods, smouldering, everlasting embers: Manilla elemi, a lemony oleoresin, amber- and vanilla-scented cistus and benzoin, on a perfect woody fire of cedar, gaiac, and gurjan wood. 

  • How to use

    Huile Antique can be applied all over the body, on slightly damp skin, after a shower or bath. Massage from the feet up to the neckline area, spending some extra time on the heels, knees and elbows. 

    Apply a small amount on the ends of dry hair to leave them hydrated and slightly perfumed.

    Because of its brightening and relaxing effect, Huile Antique is perfect for evening use, either at bedtime or prior to a night out. Applied on slightly damp skin, this oil is absorbed more easily by the skin.
