The Fragrance


I was on a mission to find out what this scent was, and was suprised to find it was this oil all along! It smells SO good! #nuxe #frenchpharmacy #nikkisbeautytips

This alluring scent first went viral when TikToker Nikki (@uglyducklingskincare) shared a video of her journey to find the mysterious perfume that French women were using!

Nikki’s quest for the captivating scent took her on a wild goose chase, scouring various popular beauty outlets like Sephora without success. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon iPharm, a renowned French pharmacy, that she finally unravelled the mystery.

To her surprise, the sought-after scent turned out to not be a perfume at all – it’s none other than the Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil by Nuxe!

This captivating oil features hints of orange blossom, magnolia, and vanilla, and is enriched with beneficial oils such as argan oil, macadamia oil, and borage oil.

It’s suitable for both skin and hair, boasting an antioxidant-rich formula that helps to soften and calm the skin, while also giving your hair a glossy and well-nourished appearance.

When applying to the face, you can either spritz it on alone or mix it with a moisturiser. It can also be gently massaged into dry patches on the body.

To use it on your hair, dispense one or two pumps of oil into your palms and distribute it evenly on the lengths and tips of your hair. You can even leave it in as a pre-shower hair treatment!

For the ultimate spa-like experience at home, add a few drops of the oil to a warm bath to enhance your self-care routine.

Other Nuxe Products

Nuxe has also launched several different variations after the success of their original dry oil, offering something for everyone’s beauty needs!

If you’re a fan of floral scents, you’ll love Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse Florale. It’s a more delicate version of their original dry oil, with even stronger hints of beautiful flowers.

However, it’s worth noting that in Malaysia’s humid weather, using these oils might feel a little uncomfortable, despite their claim of not leaving a greasy texture on the skin.

If you prefer a lighter fragrance, not to worry! Nuxe has also released the Prodigieux Le Parfum Eau De Parfum, a traditional perfume that has the exact same scent as the oil.

And Nuxe doesn’t just stop at fragrances – they even have shimmering versions of the dry oil, which contain golden pearly particles. You can use them to add a radiant glow to areas like your cheekbones, décolletage, or shoulders.

Nikki (@uglyducklingskincare) notices a nutty fragrance in the product, thanks to ingredients like macadamia and almond oil. This gives the final product a refreshing and clean scent.

She mainly uses it to smooth out her frizzy hair and manage her baby hairs, resulting in a sleek and shiny look!

Farah (@farahsthoughts) finds it to be truly unique, unlike other orange blossom scents available in the market! The dry oil’s aroma reminds her of a summery sunkissed aesthetic, while the Huile Prodigieuse Florale offers a stronger floral scent for those who prefer delicate and feminine perfumes.


Late for hype as always, but lets bring Nuxe back #nuxe #nuxeparis #perfume #fragrance #parfum #perfumecollection #eaudeparfum #parfumtiktok

Lastly, Natalie (@natalieperfumes) appreciates that the oil can be lightly sprayed and mentions that it feels lightweight on the skin. However, she notes that it can become slightly greasy when used on hair.

She also points out that both the dry oil and the perfume share the exact same scent, making them essentially interchangeable depending on personal preferences.
