Yesterday I was invited to see the new Aesop store – Copenhagen’s first. It was about time we got our own, but it is well worth the wait!
I’ve loved the aesthetics of the Australian brand for a long time, but it’s actually in the recent years I started using it. I’m totally addicted to their hand sanitizer when I’m traveling, I love their hand soaps (especially the scrub one), and I recently started using the Fabolous cleanser and Blue Chamomile mask.
Did you know Aesop was actually launched in 1987? It seems like the Australian brand is really getting big these years, with new stores popping up in all the right places. One of them being Copenhagen’s cutest street Værnedamsvej in Frederiksberg. With Aesop’s strong connection to Paris (“our spiritual home and pre-eminent source of inspiration” as they say), they couldn’t have picked a better place, as Værnedamsvej is like a small slice of Paris in Copenhagen. A French school, French cafés, delis and shops and the overall ambience makes you long for a croissant.
The store is designed by Ilse Crawford, and it’s even prettier in real life!
So of course I didn’t leave empty handed! Because my skincare routine is already pretty solid, I was adviced to get my scrub on with the Tea Tree Leaf Facial Exfoliant and cleanse with the Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque. Can’t wait to get started!
Aesop is always worth a visit, because they’re so good at giving out samples, the best way to try (and fall in love with) their products. And their stores have great locations – so when you visit an Aesop store, there’s usually something good in the area.
