A fabled beauty comes to town
To those in the know, Aesop is a beauty brand like no other. Its brown-glass apothecary bottles tinkle in all the bathroom cabinets that matter – but now the Australia-born, France-inspired brand is bringing its natural, nurturing products to a new store in London's Soho. Step inside and try out the signature parsley-seed range: your skin will thank you for visiting. 41 Lexington Street, London W1, aesop.com
