Le Labo Hand Soap: An Aesop Alternative?

Tempted to buy a bottle of Aesop hand soap? Don’t want to spend quite that much money? Le Labo is an excellent Aesop alternative. This bottle, their Hinoki/Sea Buckthorn scent, is excellent.

I noticed it when I was meeting a few friends for after-work drinks. One of my favorite cocktail bars started carrying it. I’m tempted to make a purchase, but the price is still a little prohibitive.

The funny thing is this scent is exactly what I want from a candle, but haven’t been able to find.
