Aesop is one of my favorite shops on Rue Tiquetonne – just “enface” En Selle Marcel. The brand that has its origins in Melbourne Australia has somehow managed with their clean aesthetics and minimalist chemical tampering to infuse some of the best smelling and least abrasive beauty products into our generation.
Aesop skin, hair and body care products are to be found not only in the restrooms of some of the most trendy stores and restaurant in Paris, but also have many of own stand alone stores with knowledgeable in-store team that can guide you in buying the best type of product for your specific skin type.
If you want to stop using supermarket brands or as in my case I stopped in one day after deciding to give up on pharmacy brands, then you’ll be taken care of here. I guess I was mostly impressed by the one part curiosity cabinet feel and one part vintage doctors office vibe of the store.
We love that they strive to “ use both plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients of the highest quality and proven efficacy – particularly those with the greatest anti-oxidant properties.” And if you want to learn more about their dedication to Anti- Oxidants read more here.
