  • 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.



    Oud de Médine showcases a divine trio: saffron, a spice also known as red gold, rose, the most celebrated flower in Persian mystical poetry, and precious oud or agarwood, a resin with a unique fragrance, woody and amber-like. Behind these major accords, the softer melodies of amber, vanilla, musk emerge along with a touch of patchouli and sandalwood. 

    These combined, inimitable treasures take us from the Middle East to the frontiers of Asia, along the legendary Silk Road, dotted with caravanserais – Isfahan, Cairo, Constantinople, Baghdad, Damascus or Samarkand – in a reverie feverish with the hum of the crowd, lively conversations, warm colours and the intoxicating perfumes of rare spices blown by the desert winds… 

  • 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.
