You might know the brand Aesop for its cult-favorite hand soap. (Yes, if you didn't know soap could be something to write home about, Aesop's Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash, $40, exceeds every expectation.) If you're unfamiliar with the brand, however, Aesop is a Melbourne-based brand that's all about smart, thoroughly researched products that are extremely high quality.
Take its fragrances, for example. Each Aesop fragrance is carefully curated using interesting and unique ingredients. Their scents range from floral to herbaceous, using both lab-made and naturally sourced ingredients for the longest-lasting scents possible. Aesop fragrances are totally singular, and that's what makes them such a beauty-editor favorite. Keep reading for the best Aesop fragrances out there.

3. Aesop Rozu Eau de Parfum
Key notes: rose, bergamot, shiso, pink pepper, ylang-ylang, guaiac wood, jasmine, sandalwood, valerian grass, patchouli, myrrh, musk
Aesop isn't really known for floral fragrances—this is its first one. In a truly unique twist, this scent takes you through the life cycle of a rose, and green and woodsy undertones keep it interesting.
4. Aesop Marrakech Intense Eau de Parfum
Key notes: wood, spice, fresh florals, animalistic
How often do you see "animalistic" in perfume notes? In this perfume, a slight animalistic quality adds a raw edge that makes it just as colorful and exciting as Marrakech, the city it's inspired by.
5. Aesop Karst Eau de Parfum
Key notes: herbs, spice
In case it's not obvious, the thing Aesop does best is creating fragrances that are hard to nail down. Karst is a perfect example of that—it smells kind of like a brisk day on the seaside with mineral, metallic, and herbaceous notes swirling in the air.
