Buly 1803

Paris has so much to offer….food, clothing, chocolate, beauty products, you name it. On our recent trip, I visited (thanks to a friend’s recommendation) the most insanely beautiful and luxurious fragrance and skincare boutique, Buly 1803. Originally founded in 1803 by Frenchman Jean-Vincent Bully, who was known for his signature perfumes and scented vinegars, it was reopened in April 2014 by Victoire and Ramdane Touhami on the quaint Rue Bonaporte in St Germain de Près. It maintains an old vibe with some new, modern flair (they took out the second ‘l’ in Buly to make it similar, but different). This place is incredible — old school, antique, and classic, but with new skin care concoctions that draw on the virtues of natural ingredients. All of the products are made without parabens, phenoxyethanol or silicone! What is not to love?

The store is more than just a place to shop… it’s an experience. You first choose a scent, then the product, and then the label on the box.  It transports you back in time and makes you feel like you are in a different century.

As we were traveling back to the US the next day (with a carry on), I could not buy very much as I needed the items to be small (and less than 3 ounces). If I could have, I would have bought everything. Absolutely all the products are divine. They are special, unique, beautiful, and natural. And now you can buy online. WOOHOO! Definitely check them out. And to drool, follow them on instagram. Have a great week!

  1. Hi Anika, would love to know how were the soaps from Buly 1803. Were they any good? i.e. works effectively and smells ok?

    • Lucy — this soap is AMAZING. Works effectively, and smells like heaven. seriously, the best scent. Soothing, moisturizing, effective. I am going to Paris in 2 weeks for 3 days and am going to stop in the store to buy more soap. So worth it.

  2. Thanks Anika for the prompt reply. Ooh enjoy your holiday! Looking forward to your photos and holiday stories 🙂
