We usually equate the Japanese aesthetic and approach to be one that involves minimalism. While that is true in several cases, Cosme Decorte separates itself from the norm with its decadent approach to skincare, right down to its ornate packaging. Under the Internationally renowned Japanese skincare giant Kose, Cosme Decorte was founded a number of years back in Japan, 1970. A combination of the French words cosmetique and decoration – the aim of this branch of skincare line is to focus on luxurious ingredients and to approach skincare with ostentatious flair. That means, not just ingredients wise but also creating a sensory experience that takes into consideration the scent, feel and look of their products.

Their AQMW line (which stands for Miracle Wonder) is housed in an avant-garde style bottles designed by renowned architect, Marcel Wanders. Perfectly fitting initials aside, the luxe packaging designs are inspired by feminine beauty and fresh flora. An artful bottle houses the AQMW Cleansing Milk that is formulated with botanical ingredients and is made to remove makeup and impurities effectively. Touted to be as gentle as a cleansing cream but as powerful as a cleansing oil, it’s a must-have for all skin types. A more oily skin type may benefit from the AQMW Facial Wash instead and claims to clean the skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. The entire line is scented with sandalwood and essential oils for a spa-like experience at home.
