BULY 1803

Following on from the success of Cire Trudon, the talented French couple Ramdane Touhami and Victoire de Taillac has launched a new brand, an historic beauty label Buly 1803. Drawing inspiration from the life and work of Parisian perfumer Jean-Vincent Bully, whose colourful life also inspired his contemporary Honoré de Balzac for the novel César Birotteau, the brand is a deliciously 19th-century stage set presenting 15 lines including products such as the evocatively named Pommade Virginale or Pommade Sécrète hand cream. Buly’s first home is an atmospheric apothecary located at the top of the Rue Bonaparte on the Left Bank, around the corner from the Dries Van Noten flagships, and open to the public from today.

MARTIN PARR PARIS AT THE MEP

For 35 years Martin Parr has been turning scenes of ordinary life into grotesque and surprising scenes that demonstrate human vulnerability. He now invites us to follow him around Paris. The Maison Européenne de la Photographie gave him carte blanche for this series, and for two years he focused on Parisians, photographing the Champs-Élysées, tourists, the 14 July celebrations, fashion shows, the Le Bourget air show, Paris Plage, museums, art fairs, the annual agricultural show, etc. About 60 photographs, some new, some less recent, illustrate Martin Parr’s Paris.
>Until 25 May. >11am-8pm. Closed Mon, Tue. >8€/ 4.50€ >Maison Européenne de la Photographie, 7 rue de Fourcy, 4th. www.mep-fr.org
