A rescued heritage skincare brand

After “rescuing” Cire Trudon, Ramdane Touhami has revived another French heritage brand, this time with his beauty blogger wife, Victoire de Taillac: Buly.

The French perfumery and skincare maker Buly 1803 was created 2 years before the French Revolution, but it really became famous in the 19th century (hence the reference to 1803).

Just like Cire Trudon, this is a spectacular revival. The shop looks like an old apothecary. Product packaging is inspired by the brands’ origins; it’s rich, delicate, nostalgic and chic. Their traditional soaps and hand balm are irresistible, and you’ll also find quirky items such as perfumed matches.

Buly will win over fans of natural cosmetics as their products contain no parabens, and are silicon- and phenoxyethanol-free. All cosmetics are made in France using the finest ingredients sourced around the globe.

Fun fact: the brand was originally spelled with two “L”s, but the new owners shed one because, in English, the word had a negative meaning. Talk about global marketing!
