Once upon a time, the French woman’s go-to shopping destination was her local apothecary. Whether it was a balm for headaches or a special draft to help her sleep better, the apothecary was a one-stop shop for cures designed to address every concern. These days, women turn to the pharmacy for pre-formulated solutions to our problems. Still, the old-world charm of the apothecary with its offering of personalised blends remains attractive. Such is the appeal of Huygens, a French beauty apothecary that launched recently at Isetan Scotts in Singapore.
Founded in 2013 by Daan Sins and Sebastian Guerra, Huygens is an up-and-coming French brand committed to creating the next generation of organic cosmetics that are 100% clean and cruelty-free. Their line-up of beauty products encompasses a wide range, covering fragrance, skincare, home aromatherapy, and even bespoke hair and body care formulas for that extra-special touch.
