Aesop have launched a new range of Gift Kits for 2017-18 which pay homage to ground-breaking studies on human behaviour, and feature curated skin and body care products to suit a range of recipients. The six kits are collectively titled, The Enigmatic Mind, with each kit celebrating an influential social psychology experiment that rose to prominence in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

I was very lucky to receive the beautiful Sway Gift Kit which references the Asch conformity experiments, and how we adapt to accommodate those around us. It comprises of a group of agreeable formulations for hand and body care: Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash, Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser, and Geranium Leaf Body Balm. Packaged in a practical, reusable amenity case, the kits are wrapped in sleeves inspired by social psychology books of the era; the design subtly referencing the experiment behind it.
