There is just something so grown-up about fancy-pants hand wash. When an amber bottle of Aesop sits stylishly (and rather haughtily) atop a sink, your status as a fully-fledged adult is compounded. It’s like a hygienic hooray for getting your sh*t together.
But with the all-pervading Aesop now on every sink from here to Helsinki (yes, there’s a boutique even there) a new, but equally aromatic batch of suds awaits (seriously, when The Block rolls it out on repeat, you know it’s time).
Some remain housed in that now-iconic, tawny bottle, like Grown Alchemist or Thank You – with profits going to sanitise underprivileged communities (it’s like washing with a conscience). Whilst others have gone rogue (you scallywag suds, you) with ASPAR, Malin+Goetz, Lafco and the like doing their own cleanly thing with a varied aesthetic.
Adult-ing has never looked so fresh, so clean.
