If you're like me and have watched Midnight in Paris about 30 times too many, you probably agree: There is nothing more glamorous than old-world France, and nothing quite as entrancing than a Parisian woman with amazing skin.
Lucky for us, one of the country's OG boutique beauty brands, L'Officine Universelle Buly, is opening a brick and mortar location stateside at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC, as well as making itself available online. Founded in 1803 (yes, really), it offers vintage-style perfumes, oils, and body milks so lovely and decadent you'll never let them out of plain sight.

Buly's two best-selling creams are the Pommade Virginal, a face moisturizer packed with super-hydrating sweet almond oil, and Pommade Concrete, a cult hand and foot cream housed in a tube that belongs in a Belle Époque-era fortune teller's den.
