  • Description

    This dry oil is a perfect nectar for the skin, as bewitching as it is essential. 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 properties. 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.
     
    OVERHEARD AT THE OFFICINE
    "Huile Antique can be used after washing with the Huile de Savon. They can have different scents, as all our performers harmonize particularly well, whichever way they’re associated. Dry to the touch, this is a much-appreciated quality."



  • SIGNATURE SCENT

    VENUS DE MILO
     
    Venus, or the expression of a bounty of flowers in a bouquet, enhanced by jasmine and its almost carnal note. The majestic flower is picked at dawn, when its perfume is at its peak, before being joyfully wrapped in spices and musk accords.
    To incarnate the magnificence of the sculpture, the perfumer summoned intense hesperidic notes such as mandarin, the fruit of an elegant bush, cousin of the orange. When it was imported in Europe in the 19th century, mandarin swept over France, Italy, Spain, and... Greece, where it started to be cultivated in the luxuriant Chios orchards. A symbol of abundance, it lends its mild sweet and sour notes to the marble and gives it life and movement. Amber resin, a scented breath of air – as well as an artistic material since Prehistory – subtly darkens the masterpiece with its fierce notes. Halfway between wood and tobacco, bright amber brings the Venus its indescribable energy, an energy one can only claim when wearing the perfume.

  • 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.
     
    THE OFFICINE RECOMMENDS
    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.
