If you’ve been an avid Aesop fan, you’d know that there’s always something more than the usual to look forward to at the tail end of every year with the much loved gift kits from this “intellectual” brand.
This year, Aesop pays tribute to the historical craft guilds around the world with The Guild of Artisans, honouring practitioners who have spent lifetimes honing knowledge and techniques that help them excel in their respective crafts. Six materials, also frequently employed in Aesop spaces worldwide, are presented in practical and reusable tin boxes, wrapped in an elegant embossed sleeve.
COPPER: A CERTAIN RADIANCE is the only sumptuous hand and body care quartet that you will ever need. It consists of the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash for the gentlest cleansing for the hands, with the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm for the perfect hydrating maintenance after that. For the body, there is A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser for a mild and refreshing shower, and the Rind Concentrate Body Balm for a nourishing neck-to-toe moisturisation. This collection retails at RM365.
LEATHER: THE SUPPLE GENTLEMAN contains the trifecta of formulations that is ideal for everyday use for the guys. The Fabulous Face Cleanser offers mild and gentle cleansing for all skin types, whereas the Moroccan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion soothes, nourishes, and moisturises for an aftershave goodness, especially all the roughin’ and toughin’ during Movember last month. Lastly, the Coriander Seed Body Cleanser that refreshes from neck to toe with its low-foaming and invigorating ingredients. This collection retails at RM280.
TEXTILE: A FLAXEN FINISH presents a trio of everyday grooming products that are also travel-friendly for those jetsetters out there. The Low-foaming Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser calls for a gentle and thorough cleansing session, and the Rind Concentrate Body Balm provides invigorating neck-to-toe hydration, whereas the Rosehip Seed Lip Cream softens and nourishes them puckers. This collection retails at RM195.
CERAMIC: PRECIOUS AS PORCELAIN offers three formulations from the brand’s renowned Parsley Seed Skin Care range, such as the Gel-based Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser, the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, and the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum — all made from Parsley Seed extract that’s rich in anti-oxidant that helps protect the skin against cell damage caused by environmental and internal factors. This collection retails at RM550.
MARBLE: SMOOTHED TO PERFECTION is a Classic Skin Care regimen that’s suitable for all skin types, and the result is skin that is smooth, supple and nourished. It’s a series of Fabulous Face Cleanser that gently removes grime and makeup without drying the skin, the B&T Balancing Toner that soothes and refreshes, and the Camelia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream that moisturises and softens. This collection retails at RM410.
TIMBER: THE LEAF SUPREME offers an aromatic trio of Aesop’s Geranium Leaf body care staples, such as the Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser for a thorough cleansing, the Geranium Leaf Body Scrub for an invigorating exfoliation, and the Geranium Leaf Body Balm that hydrates and nourishes the skin. This collection retails at RM270.
