‘The Boat’ pays homage to the serenity and savagery of the sea, with its heady, swirling waves, oscillating horizon, and peaceful yet isolating emptiness. Majesty, in a word, in stark contrast to humankind’s enduring vulnerability. Taking a page from authors such as Joyce and Melville, it is a violent and voluptuous history of the sea—all set in a floating space without a place.
Creating unorthodox fragrances requires an equally unorthodox approach. Here, Barnabé Fillion, Aesop’s long-term fragrance partner and the nose behind Miraceti, recounts this olfactory journey.
Miraceti is just one fragrance in the Othertopias range. Discover fresh, herbaceous, marine Karst and green, floral, citrus Erémia. For gentle daily care neck to toe, begin with an aromatic body cleanser; follow with a sumptuous hydrating body balm.
