One of the Officine’s classics, this extra-fine body lotion, as light as it is effective, is inspired by timeless beauty secrets; it softens the skin, evens out the complexion, and envelopes you in an extraordinary green and mineral scent.
Its excellent reputation rests on its 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. In 1826, Jean-Vincent Bully created this Lait Virginal, which was then brought up to date by the Officine with natural ingredients.
From the valleys of the Cairngorms to the Northern Highlands, clary sage and galbanum resin mingle with notes of fern, rosemary and caraway seeds. A shadow of rhubarb hides under the green, invigorating smell of moss over granite, kissed by the rain, and comes to warm up next to the open fire with patchouli and Tonka bean accords.
A rare perfume, Eau Triple Scottish Lichen’s and its woody essence are a concentrate of typically Gaelic fervour, of the kind that seizes you when you’re taking an autumnal stroll in the mist-enshrouded Scottish hills, in a Grimm tale wonderland of pine and birch trees, of crimson moors covered in fern and heather, before walking upon vast emerald-green lands peppered with wild broom. Wearing ‘Scottish Lichen’ is to embrace 18th-century Scottish hero Robert Burns’ song, ‘My heart is in the Highlands Wherever I go.’
Advice for Use & Care
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.
Lait Virginal softens the skin and evens out the complexion, in particular thanks to the vegetable glycerine and the synergy of natural emollients.
