Aesop: The Lore Collector

No travel plan escaped COVID’19’s grasp this year, as we bid farewell to family reunions and farflung honeymoons. 

But Aesop’s The Lore Collector is here to remind us of the magic of our imagination.

Sadly, many of us didn’t roam much further than the living room, so the gift kit will prove a thoughtful present for the frustrated globetrotter in your life and will help them plan their next local destination.

A quartet of hand and body care favourites from the beauty mecca are housed inside: each designed to cleanse, hydrate and subtly scent the skin.

The Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash is our favourite and is sure to become a sink staple. Simply lather up and dispense onto damp hands.

After drying, treat your hands (and cuticles) to the matching Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm.

The Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser and Geranium Leaf Body Balm work similarly. Massage a generous amount of the balm into clean skin from neck to toe for a post-shower treatment. 


The Lore Collector is even paired with a folktale by Lafcadio Hearn so we can escape the everyday from the bathtub. 


This isn’t the only Aesop gift kit on our wish list this year. The Metaphysical Voyager – which can be found over in our gift guide for travel lovers – is also worth a shout out.

Together Journal recently reviewed Departure by Aesop too. A compact kit of delightful inflight minis, it’s a must for spontaneous weekends away.

It’s so good, you’ll sneakily add it to your own wish list.
