Beloved by A-listers from Jennifer Aniston to Hailey Bieber, Augustinus Bader, one of the most sought after cult skincare brands in the world, has at last launched in Singapore at Sephora Raffles City. The brand’s The Cream ($430 for 50ml) in particular, is hugely sought after for its efficacy in combating a whole host of skin issues from wrinkles and sagginess to dryness and scarring at the cellular level. The brand’s efficacy stems from its origins – professor Augustinus Bader is a stem cell and biomedical scientist at Leipzig University in Germany. The professor was developing a medical-grade cream to heal severe burn injuries that were previously only possible through skin grafts and his research led to the launch of the science-driven, cellular-focused skincare label. Other hero products include The Essence ($145 for 100ml), The Serum ($535 for 30ml) and The Eye Cream ($300 for 15ml).

The fascinating Eidesis Eau de Parfum ($255) is the fourth fragrance in Aesop’s Othertopias fragrance collection, inspired by the idea of imaginary worlds beyond the surface of the mirror.

Comforting yet unconventional, the perfume opens with top notes of sparkling petitgrain, black pepper and a subtle floral accord which leads to spicy frankincense and cumin before closing with a base of woody sandalwood and earthy vetiver.
