SEASONLY ENLIGHTENED READ

FOR THE CURIOUS AND OTHER LOVERS OF COSMETIC LITERATURE

The Officine Universelle Buly believes in bright tomorrows, and sometimes even in good resolutions. While the beginning of the year is often conducive to adopting cheerful new habits, January is indeed the month for experimentation.

The Officine Universelle Buly believes in bright tomorrows, and sometimes even in good resolutions. While the beginning of the year is often conducive to adopting cheerful new habits, January is indeed the month for experimentation. 

Those famous long winter evenings - and since there are so many of them - are an opportunity to read and learn in a different way, to put off the ease of series and other time-consuming pastimes. Take notes and make room for knowledge! 

The Officine considers beauty and perfume as idols, treats them with the greatest seriousness and believes that its customers, of which you are the most loyal, share a taste for knowledge, reading and new insights. There is nothing trivial here, everything is necessary. 

Taking care of yourself is an art of living that fascinates us, a savoir-vivre that enchants our daily lives. And the Officine has made it its business, to the delight of lovers of self-esteem. 

“Manners are the happy ways of doing things”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Like a universal comptoir for a thousand traditions, rituals and beauty secrets from all over the world, we collect handcrafted accessories, beneficial plant oils, powders and clays, stones with precious properties, sponges from the depths of the sea... 

While our Officines are ideal for discovering these great natural beauty classics, our online shop offers a digital and instructive stroll sheltered from the winter weather. 

THE ONLY BOOK TO READ IN YOUR BATHROOM

This encyclopaedic compendium of 80 natural ingredients is a precise, precious and entertaining guide to help you live “beautifully”, in harmony with yourself and with the best that Nature has to offer. This illustrated atlas featuresrecipes, historical anecdotes and botanical knowledge.

The ingredients in this guide are all-natural and easy to find. Whether it's a simple oatmeal bath to smooth skin, sake lotion for your scalp or lemon "shine water" to brighten blonde hair, the recipes are simple to follow and many of the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. Basic items such as avocado, mint, rice and salt become a fortifying hair mask, a purifying skin mist, a soothing face mask and a hair fixative in just a few minutes. Each recipe in the Atlas of Natural Beauty echoes L'Officine's unique aesthetic heritage as a Parisian apothecary. Available in French, English, Russian and Japanese, you won't want to miss a thing.

Beauty isn't just about unreasonable promises. To feel good, to look good, all you have to do is keep it simple and real. And there's nothing more obvious and effective than taking care of yourself naturally. Nothing is easier than taking the time to do it, nothing is more pleasant than giving meaning to beauty gestures and discovering the pleasure of taking care of yourself. Like a breath of fresh air, natural beauty rituals fit seamlessly into your day. It's a savoir-vivre that doesn't require a lot of space, effort or complex knowledge. It's just a habit to get into, a talent to acquire, that can enhance your daily life." Manifeste officinal, extract from The Atlas of Natural Beauty.
