Aesops first Oil Burner in Brass

December 4, 2018


I think anyone that follows me knows by now I am very fond of Aesop products, in fact most of my facial and care is comprised by Aesop. What you probably didn’t know is that when a product finishes and I really need a replacement I seldomly will order it online. While shopping online is one of the easiest and quickest ways to shop, unfortunately if I do , I miss the entire experience of shopping in Aesop and this is something I value almost as much as the products themselves.

Aesop does not only provide with body/face care and fragrances, there is a home line (some of my favorites are in this category)  that is now expanded with the arrival of the first Aesop Oil Burner made of brass.

If you have only ordered online you won’t know of this, but every Aesop store has a certain ambiance, the subtle aroma of what is clearly the Aesop identity envelops you as you enter the store. Shop alone or ask for assistance, you can ask the stuff to try on any combination of products and they will recommend what you need if you want them to. While being treated to a hand massage you can also drink some warm tea, a proprietary blend made for Aesop that is not for sale, something you can only enjoy in store as a warm welcome. Once finished with shopping, the stuff will put any products in a muslin reusable bag (I get so much out of these bags)  that will be sprayed with a proprietary fragrance to make the bag smell like the store for quite a few days to come. Before you leave the store make sure to use on your way out any of their free to use hand balms (unless you already have one in your bag like I do). Yes shopping online is quick and effortless, but personally I wouldn’t want to miss this experience.

The Brass Oil Burner that can only be bought in store , brings some of the experience back when at home. Just add a few drops of the Beatrice oil burner blend on top of the lid and light the candle inside, then sit back and enjoy the fragrance that fills the room. Just make sure where you place the burner, it can get quite hot so surfaces need to be able to tolerate heat.

The oil burner is designed for Aesop by Studio Henry Wilson in Australia. It is made of solid brass in Australia using mold casting – an ancient technique that uses wax molds for metal casting – to ensure that every single oil burner has its own character and brass patina, which will develop over time. In the work of the oil lamp, the designer was inspired by asymmetry, the imperfect beauty of pouring molten brass in a form and the quiet ritual of lightning a candle

“The purpose of the design was to create a container that was a tool and votive art object that reflects Aesop’s strong East philosophy for design, emphasizing the irregular and asymmetric as something unique beautiful and poetic. The amorphous design was carefully developed to reflect the imperfections in the metal casting process and the soft edges and silent shapes are meant to keep warm and give some mystery. “Says Henry Wilson

Pholc Mobil for small spaces

October 17, 2018


If you are looking for a stylish small table lamp, my tip for today is the Mobil table lamp from Pholc. You have seen the pendant version in my Oslo bedroom and the wall version in my home office in Oslo , so you already know it is a line that I like using. The small table version might be the most versatile of them all, its petite size can fit in any small space, and the adjustable milky light that it emits can elegantly light even the darkest corners. Use it next to your bed if you only have a small stool like I do as sideboard (last photo as seen from this blogpost about the bedroom at the cabin), in between the stairs and a tall cupboard  (as seen below ) , it can even be used as a substitute for a floor lamp if you put it on a shelf (as seen on the photo above).  Its petite size allows for various uses , one that I can easily think is narrow window sills where is is usually very hard to find an appropriate size for a lamp, even on the floor on top of a stack of books, just a few ideas!

Aesop Deodorant love

May 14, 2018


A few weeks ago I received the newsletter about the new Aesop Deodorant, and as all new Aesop things go, I was really curious to try it. The smell is very familiar , most Aesop scents have a relaxed friendliness aura, you know what I mean if you have ever visited one of the stores. Whether you want to smell like Aesop in your armpits that is up to you, I have been using it so much however that I now need a new bottle. In the photo above you can also see some of my favorites from Aesop when it comes to everyday use. The Lucent Facial concentrate, helps even and brighten skin tone. Thanks to Vitamin C that helps reduce pigmentation, and niacinamide that fights age spots and unifies skin tone, you can expect a brighter skin tone and smoother texture with regular use. A smoother texture will ensure light bounces off your skin evenly to give it that natural, healthy glow. Just pop into an Aesop store and ask for a sample they will be happy to demonstrate and give you a few days of worth of samples too, it will change your skin, I personally love it. Another favorite of mine, the Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm ( sitting on the marble grey plate ), although it is supposed to be for the body I mostly use it for my hands. They are part of the body right? It absorbs quickly and moisturizes thoroughly while the texture of this balm is thick, but when applied to the skin it soothes without leaving a greasy finish. It also smells absolutely amazing, the scent profile is Tangerine Rind, Vanille and Sandalwood The aromatic oils are very soothing, and also penetrate deeply to relax the muscles. Use it for your feet, calves, just try it before bed and you will thank me ;)

My favorite brass details

May 11, 2018


Last few months I think you might have noticed I am loving nickel coated and silver surfaces, but you will also notice that my love for brass is still going strong, even though it is not as pronounced as last year. Key pieces here and there will make a difference, I tend to have one thing here , one thing there.. I think the color pops out more like this and it creates a subtle statement. Today I am sharing a few of my favorites, some new, some old! Lets dig in!


A new addition to my collection ( photo above ) the handmade brass candleholder called Moon Candleholder by Mleko Living. Beautiful shape and quite unique, I love how it looks on my windowsill. Mleko Living also have beautiful ceramics ( remember the carafe from the previous blogpost on my marble plinth table?  That is also from Mleko  and you can find it here). A glimpse also in the photo above of the Ferm Living candle extinguisher in brass, yes you can just blow the candle, but why not extinguish the flame in style if you can?

Another favorite of mine, something that I use all the time in fact, the brass tray ( the Edge Plate in small as seen above)  from Skagerak . Designed by Stilleben in Denmark , this tray is so very versatile, use it as a tray for plants, inside or outside, use it as a tray for small or bigger things, use it to carry things ( on the larger size), you will love it either way. I think I might have 5 or 6 of them in various sizes, it is like an amazing t shirt that you buy in every color because it fits you so amazingly! I also posted this photo on my instagram ( check it out here) if you are looking for a tip to clean your brass items, they will look like new trust me ;)

Simple and clean, the water bottle/carafe from Menu is beautiful on its own, without water, but of course I do use it as intended ;) The only problem is now I also want the glasses that go with..

Hiding a little bit behind the  beautiful Menu TR Bulb Table lamp, a purchase from almost two years ago now that is still on top of my favorite list. The incense burner Circa by Cinnamon Projects. If you do not know about Cinnamon Projects, then I suggest you visit their page regardless, from fragrances to incenses, even if you do not like to burn them, their collection is so beautiful, you will want one regardless. For the record my favorite one to burn is the 8pm

Yet another from Menu, this time the brass is only on the edge of the marble mirror Pepe. I chose the white one when I got it since I painted everything in my bedroom beige, even the windows, but it comes in quite big variety of marbles, always however, with the brass ring accentuating the design and the marble.

Small but it draws the eye, the brass spoon Fein in small ( comes in bigger sizes as well and it is part of the collection Fein that can be seen as a whole here). My only problem is that I only have 2 of each, I need to fix that!

Old but always on the spotlight, the brass bonbonniere Peak ( here in large), from Stelton. I store everything from candy to USB wires in it, or even used tea lights, depending on where I place it. Handy with stunning design!

And last but not least ( as seen on the photo below), the brass shelf Reflect. The series also comes with beautiful brass hooks ( as seen in my Bedroom Renovation reveal post) that I use when I want to hang anything that is handy in the bedroom ( usually my speaker or robe).


These are few of my  brass favorites, if you have any you would like to share, just leave a comment below, I d love to see what you use everyday and what you love having around!
