  • 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, comes 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.



    This profoundly Oriental fragrance unfolds in a veritable ode to irises, revealing powdery and woody notes leavened by the warmth of amber and sumptuous resins, and hints of blond tobacco and cardamom. Eau Triple Makassar is a living paradox, its subdued elegance counterpointed by a singular force for a crescendo effect on the skin.  

    The iris, flower of kings, one of the most precious cultivars in the world, exhales a sensual sillage that develops over time, akin to a fruity violet. Leathery cade, intense Virginia cedar and exotic resins from South-East Asia bring balance to the ensemble.

  • 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.
