Some time in 1803, Rue Sain­tHonore in Paris must have be­gun to smell quite nice. Buly – or Bully, as he pre­ferred to be known – had set up shop, sell­ing his in­tox­i­cat­ing con­coc­tions of per­fumes and scented vine­gars. His best-known po­tion was Vi­nai­gre de Bully, a patented scented lo­tion that cleaned the skin and re­fined skin tone, earn­ing him quite the fol­low­ing across Europe. To­day, the Bully name lives on through the Of­ficine Uni­verselle Buly 1803 boutique on Rue Bon­a­parte and, from last month, on­line on Net-A-Porter.

Bring the Buly scent home with the paraf­fin-free scented can­dle, which is for­mu­lated from plant­based in­gre­di­ents like rice, soy and co­pra, and topped with a pure cot­ton wick. Pro­tected by a mar­ble holder and a bell-shaped glass lid, it also makes for strik­ing home decor. www.buly1803.com
