  • 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 perfumes harmonize particularly well, whichever way they’re associated. Dry to the touch, this is a much-appreciated quality.

  • SIGNATURE SCENT

     La Victoire de Samothrace

     
    The “La Victoire de 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

    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.
