Aesop Poetry of Place

Aesop’s 2022-23 collection of gift kits is themed “The Poetry of Place”. Each of the four kits evokes the form of a particular Aesop store, bringing something of merit, worth and pleasure to the neighbourhood in which it sits.

Igneous (S$63) is a Geranium Leaf body care duo which recalls the singular stone façades of Aesop Pitt Street in Sydney. Industrious (S$93) is a triptych of hand care, inspired by the warm, cloistered space of Aesop Sounds Hannam in Seoul. Congruous (S$150) offers comprehensive care for hands and body via a quartet of formulations. Its design echoes Aesop Downtown LA. Precipitous (S$265) comprises a trio of Parsley Seed Skin Care with its corresponding store Aesop New Town Plaza in Hong Kong.

Each Kit is housed in a box made from 100% recycled paper pulp wrapped in a recyclable sleeve that speaks of the architecture of the relevant store as well as a playful guide to the area’s vernacular.
