Need another reason to love Singapore’s buzziest shopping district? Upscale Australian skincare brand, Aesop, has just launched its new flagship store at ION Orchard‘s basement and is set to be our fave retail hideout in the action-packed mall.
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the brand’s dedication to cutting-edge interiors. As homage to Orchard’s history as a nutmeg plantation, the store’s design resembles an “upside-down forest” with timber battens hanging from the ceiling to mimic tree trunks against the backdrop of calming pink walls (to resemble mace, a spice harvested from the nutmeg). What we love best is the heavy use of brass in its chic shelving units, cabinets and panels on the store’s facade. Coupled with racks of the brand’s signature minimalist, pharmaceutical-style glass jars, the overall effect is striking, yet decidedly soothing – perfect for a relaxing popover on an Orchard road trip.A slider with the ID of 687 doesn't exist.

At the new signature store, expect nothing less than the brand’s complete range of face, hair and body botanically based products, including bestsellers like the deeply nourishing B Triple C Balancing Gel, Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser, Fabulous Face Oil and the newly-launched refreshing Herbal Deodorant. If you’re a newbie, rest assured that you’re in good hands.
