Paris’ apothecary Buly 1803 opens its first Asian store in Taipei

Parisian brand Buly 1803 has opened first store in Taipei beginning of April. The store is located in No.263, Section 1, Dunhua South Road, Daan district in Taipei. Buly 1803 concept and environment is inspired by traditional 19th-century French hospital pharmacies. Walking into Buly 1803 is like stepping back in time.

Buly has already two stores in Paris, France with the same environment and design. One is located 6 rue Bonaparte in the chic Parisian Saint-Germain- Des-Prés district and another one also opened in Galerie Lafayette in October 2015.

De Taillac Touhami and her husband Ramdane are the brains behind Buly 1803, which has become a cult beauty destination since opening in 2014.

Originally the pharmacy was founded by cosmetician and perfumer Jean-Vincent Bully (with two “L”) in the early 19th century. Bully was a prominent figure in society and made a name for himself among the French aristocracy thanks to his innovative formulas, including vinegar perfumes. Now, new concoctions include natural ingredients – all free from parabens, phenoxyethanol and silicones.

The collection also includes hydrating body creams, balms, moisturisers, non toxic nail polish and the bestselling vegetable wax candles, housed in white and green marble containers that look like art pieces. A selection of these candles was recently launched at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
