AESOP

The Australian beauty brand Aesop finally openend his doors in one of the most beautiful streets of Amsterdam.

The very first time I saw this brand was during my visit in Paris.

I immediately felt in love with the product and the interior, very well designed.

Aesop is well known for his rich bodybalm and handwash. It’s a pure joy in a bottle.

Leaving Amsterdam without visiting Aesop is not done!
