Aesop, Est. 1987. Sensory pleasure meets efficacy.
Est 1987, Melbourne Australia.
Founded by ex-hairdresser, Dennis Paphitis, the brand’s soul lies very much in the importance of calm and composure. His first products consisted of essential oils added into commercial hair colours to mask the scent of ammonia. Working with a chemist, he went on to use these experiments to develop less aggressive hair care products that produce exceptional results. And with this, Aesop moved into the world of skincare and became what it is today.
The brand celebrates science through all of its products. A careful blend of botanical-based and laboratory-made ingredients merge together to create formulations that melt. Each offering within their range is a product of time, dedication and commitment. Unlike other skincare brands, they choose to turn away from structured release dates. Instead, products are perfected over time and released to a much-anticipated audience only once they are deemed ‘complete.
And, it is with the brand’s signature branding that they have managed to stay topical and popular since their launch in 1987. Paired back, minimalist and built on their unique ‘unselling’ model, their simplistic and sustainable packaging has become coveted. The utilitarian design sees finished bottles reused around the home and avid fans eagerly awaiting the next ground-breaking release. And, with a name drawn from a famous fabulist who wandered ancient Greece with his memorable tales, the brand continues to create its own story that has got skincare enthusiasts sitting up to listen.
