Finally Aesop is to be found in Oslo (Eger), I stumbled upon it by accident while out shopping with my mum. Her treat.
In Aesop’s own words (a philosophy right up my alley):
Aesop values all human endeavours undertaken with intellectual rigour, vision, and a nod to the whimsical. We make every product with the same attention to detail that we believe should be applied to life at large, taking into consideration the needs of your skin, the specifics of your environment, and the constraints on your time.
