With only 8 days left until Christmas, some may still be plagued by the question of what to get their loved ones. To be fair, it’s a tall order that entails much thought and consideration. While some people may see it as a chore for the sake of formality, for others, it is a gesture of affection; a symbol or celebration of a year made better because of their presence in your life.
For Aēsop, these symbols and celebrations are brought to fruition with the launch of their gift kits entitled: ‘The Poetry of Place’. A collection of products shaped by the brand’s design philosophy, each gift kit is modeled after a particular Aēsop store. A thoughtful approach to the brand’s unwavering ethos of human connection, each gift kit hopes to tell the stories of local culture and neighborly relationships whilst evoking dialogue that pays close attention to the routines and customs provided by these varied cultural settings.
Further honouring the brand’s design philosophy, it’s also important to note that each kit is housed in a box made of 100% recycled paper pulp, wrapped in a recyclable sleeve that includes information about the architecture of the relevant store.
Inspired by their Downtown LA store’s tubular walls, Congruous offers comprehensive care for hands and body, featuring a well-rounded offering of Aēsop’s most beloved products. Namely, Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash, Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, Geranium Leaf Body Scrub, and Gerainum Leaf Body Cleanser.
Igneous forms part of The Poetry Place collection, with its packaging inspired by Aēsop’s Pitt Street Store in Sydney. A Geranium leaf body care duo, this set contains the refreshing Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser and Geranium Leaf Body Balm.
Drawing inspiration from the warm and cloistered space of their Hannam, Seoul boutique, Aēsop introduces Industrious, the third addition to ‘The Poetry of Place’ Gift Kit collection. Comprised of the brand’s iconic handcare products, it proudly showcases three products from the Resurrection Aromatique line which is best known for their unique scent of Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf and Cedar Atlas oils. In the kit, you’ll find the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash, Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash, and Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm.
The final set that composes ‘The Poetry of Place’ is inspired by none other than Aēsop’s Hong Kong New Town Plaza store. Located in the heart of Hong Kong, its quietude amidst the clamor of the city’s metropolis sets the scene for this gift set that houses the brand’s remarkable range of Parsley Seed products. Featuring the Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser, Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Toner, and Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum, this gift set is a well-rounded marriage of Aēsop’s hardest working products.
