  • Description

    Its excellent reputation rests on its formulation, an ideal balance between balmy perfume and lightness. An interest in the milky way is nothing new. Bathed in milk, Cleopatra, Poppaea Sabina and Diane de Poitiers immersed themselves in its virtues in various forms to cultivate their beauty. Light and incomparably gentle, Lait Virginal confers a healthy spirit in a hydrated body. In 1826, Jean-Vincent Buly created this Lait Virginal, which was then brought up to date by the Officine with natural ingredients.
     
    OVERHEARD AT THE OFFICINE

  • SIGNATURE SCENT

    WINGED VICTORY OF SAMOTHRACE
     
    The “Winged Victory of Samothrace” is an eloquent homage to Hellenistic culture. At the four cardinal points, setting the perfume towards the most magnificent olfactory destination, a quartet of jasmine, orange blossom, rose and magnolia brings floral vigour, a whiff from the sunny coasts. Jasmine flower, soft and atypical, disseminates its majesty around a village, Grasse, renowned for its perfume tradition and the quality of its enfleurage. Orange blossom, with its powdery, green scent, blows a soft wind from the Arabian Sea and catches the senses in a swirl of irresistible notes. It is easy to understand why this flower was Louis XIV’s favourite, the only he could stand around Versailles. Orange blossom sparked a craze: the Hall of Mirrors was adorned with bowls filled with bitter oranges, the Château’s Orangerie offered its fruits to the royal distillery.
    Known since time immemorial, myrrh has a mystical, almost curative power. It was much sought after in Ancient Greece and Rome. It’s the myrrh of the Magi: Balthazar, upon Jesus’s birth, brought the precious resin, with its balsam, woody, enthralling scent, at the newborn’s feet.
    Queen of gardens and air, the rose comes from Syria and was praised by Emperor Nero, who had his guests’ tables adorned with the princely flower and its musky, clove-like scent. It is paired here with majestic magnolia flower. In the 18th century, physician and botanist François Bonamy identified the glorious tree and its delicately green-scented, mysterious, ephemeral flower as Magnolia Grandiflora.

  • How to use

    Apply Lait Virginal vigorously onto freshly washed skin, working your way up from feet to neckline, and from hand to shoulder, up to the nape and neck. Finish by massaging the earlobes.
