So, my friend Mel and I have been talking about natural products lately. I’ve also been lemming the amazing packaging of products in my other friend’s bathroom. Further investigation showed the brand I was after was named Aesop.
Using predominantly plant-based derivatives in their products, the Aesop smell is delicious. The branding – simple, brown, classy – fits any bathroom, be it rustic, classic white or country. Very clever, really. Launched in Melbourne, what I particularly love about Aesop products is this lovely little line on their website: ‘We advocate the use of our products as part of a balanced life that includes a healthy diet, sensible exercise, and a regular intake of good books.’ Touche, Aesop!
The range includes skin care, hair care, fragrances, gifts and even music, and the prices are very reasonable. Cult product – for those of you new to the brand – is their Resurrection Aromatique Hand Cream (RRP $25). Cheap, effective and pretty.
Stocked at Remedy in Leederville, WA or online.
