    Aesop  

    Newcomers to this 27-year-old brand from Melbourne, Australia (shown is New York City’s Bleecker Street shop), are quickly won over by its plant-based products, most of which are free of added fragrances. The minimalist packages, including the elegant amber-colored glass bottles, also make an impression: Many Aesop devotees purchase the mouthwash ($25) and other items simply to decorate their vanities. 212.899.3359, www.aesop.com
