A BURNING SCENT-SATION
Artisanal scented air is now just a click away on Net-A-Porter.
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
