Australian botanical brand Aesop has launched Stoic, a new limited edition fragrance developed in collaboration with designer Rick Owens. As of this writing, it appears to be available only with the Aesop + Rick Owens Travel Kit, shown above, and in a matching candle.
Developed especially for this kit, Stoic is spicy, fresh and herbaceous. The inclusion of Black Pepper and Coriander Seed is a nod to the radical work of Rick Owens, while resinous, earthy, woody Frankincense balances the fragrance. Apply directly to pulse points, or to the accompanying ceramic beads.
Stoic was developed by perfumer Barnabé Fillion.
Aesop Stoic is available in 15 ml Eau de Toilette. Other items in the kit ($190) include the ceramic beads ("A string of porous ceramic beads on a waxed cotton cord designed to be doused with fragrance and worn on the wrist, or placed in a drawer or luggage to impart aroma"), 100 ml each of Classic Shampoo, Classic Conditioner, Coriander Seed Body Cleanser and Resolute Hydrating Body Balm. The candle is sold in 65, 240 and 620g ($45-$225).
