Comprehensive care for hands and body
A sandy, Mojave hue lends itself to the relaxed, inside-outside feel of Aesop Downtown LA, whose tubular walls, inspired by the cardboard containers used by Hollywood costumers, are found replicated in the outer casing of Congruous—a gift kit of reviving hand and body care. Paying homage to a city of so many moving pictures, people and manual trades, the Downtown LA store is an apt anchor for the most comprehensive of Aesop’s new seasonal gift kits, comprising formulations for the shower and basin.
Working to rid the skin of impurities, Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser and Geranium Leaf Body Scrub share an aromatic profile that is green and infused with citrus—providing a boost in the morning and much-needed catharsis in the evening. While the gel cleanser can be used as often as desired, the scrub is best reserved for twice-weekly, neck-to-toe exfoliation, to turn the shower or bath into a more embracing ritual. Meanwhile, Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash cleanses hands thoroughly without drying them out, with a gratifying blend of Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf and Cedar Atlas oils. Its counterpart in hydration, richly textured Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, readily absorbs to leave the skin softened and nourished.
A well-rounded offering sure to please all who delight in fresh citrus aromas, Congruous forms part of The Poetry of Place, a collection of four gift kits shaped by Aesop’s philosophy of design. Housed in a case made from 100% recycled paper pulp, whose moulded shape evokes the form of a particular store, each kit tells a story of local culture and neighbourly connection—a dialogue facilitated through a considered and creative approach to the built environment.
The full collection of seasonal Gift Kits is available globally from 1 November 2022 at Aesop signature stores, counters in select department stores, and online at aesop.com.
