An Authentic Apothecary from Paris


An Authentic Apothecary from Paris

The popular apothecary from Paris, Buly 1803, is opening a store in Japan, and it will be their first wholly owned flagship store outside Paris. “We have brought the products that he created back to life, and we want to take them to the people of Japan,” says mastermind Ramdane Touhami. The store will carry many favorites including water-based perfumes made from ingredients derived from natural plant oils and a hand cream so smooth that it evokes a sense of familiarity. Beard combs, shaving cream with cypress fragrance, and many authentic products with rich stories will line the shelves. Uncompromising products for uncompromising tastes.
