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, come 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 Bully 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.

Scent

L’Eau Triple Al Kassir, c’est l’Orient tel que le rêvent et le découvrent les érudits du XIXe, le regard tourné vers l’Égypte et ses trésors. Ce parfum recèle en son coeur le bois de santal, considéré comme un arbre sacré en Inde et en Orient depuis des millénaires, un « don des dieux » qui ouvre le troisième oeil. Dans l’Égypte Antique, le santal fait partie intégrante de la composition du kyphi un parfum utilisé pour honorer le dieu solaire Râ.

A l’image des richesses de la Vallée des Rois, L’Eau Triple Al Kassir, parfum rare, appelle à la possession. Il enivre d’un défilé d’épices somptueuses dont la cardamome, la plus aimée des épices orientales, la cannelle, le gingembre, le clou de girofle auxquels le géranium apporte une touche de rose très fraîche, le patchouli de la rondeur voluptueuse et la fleur d’osmanthus une touche sensuelle, exubérante de miel et de cuir.

Et pour se rapprocher des Dieux, quoi de plus mystique que les résines et les bois précieux qui se consument ici à l’infini : l’élémi de Manille, une gomme résine citronnée, le ciste et le benjoin ambré et vanillé sur un feu boisé parfait de cèdre, de bois de gaïac et de gurjan.

Al Kassir enveloppe dans un nuage unique, éblouissant, qui évoque les mots prononcés par l’archéologue britannique Howard Carter en novembre 1922 découvrant le tombeau de Toutânkhamon : “Lorsque mes yeux s’habituèrent à la lumière, les détails de la pièce émergèrent lentement de la pénombre, des animaux étranges, des statues et de l’or, partout le scintillement de l’or.

Advice for Use & Care

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.

Composition

The Officine Recommendation

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.

"Apply after using our scented hand and body wash, Huile de Savon. Two different scents may be used together: the different fragrances are designed to create a perfect harmony together. Dry to the touch, this is a much-appreciated quality."
