I love essential oils and organic products. So naturally I tested the new brand Huygens. Its name honors to a physicist and astronomer from Paris with Dutch origin. Christian Huygens was director of the French Academy of Science from 1666 to 1681. It is thanks to his profound knowledge of nature he made his greatest discoveries.
At the origin of the concept, Daan Sins, an avid botanical formed at Lancôme and Guerlain, combines organic to customized products to answer to everyone’s needs. In the shop that looks like an apothecary, we choose the neutral base (shampoo, scrub, oil, cream …) to accord one of the 17 compositions of essential oils to suit your needs.
I tried the body scrub with Rosewood (€ 23.40), a mixture of fragrant of Earl Grey and rosebuds in anti-stress virtues, uplifting and motivating. I loved the texture with its microparticles exfoliating but not aggressive for skin . I also test the bath oil verbena (€ 26.90) whose scent is a true moment of happiness.
