Aesop

Aesop Hwyl,
perfume diffuser

For the international launch events of Aesop's new fragrance HWYL, Unfold was commissioned to design and produce a set of 3d printed ceramic perfume diffusers.

Created by Barnabé Fillion & Dr. Kate Forbes, HWYL is an intriguing fragrance with a hint of eccentricity, reminiscent of the ancient Japanese Hinoki forests. Smoky notes descend into subtle spice and dark green, earthy accords.

Taking cues from the scent's olfactory inspiration and natural narrative, Unfold 3d-scanned a series of river stones whose geometry served as the outside skin for the diffusers. Split in the middle they reveal a mysterious geometrical graphic pattern storing the scent as a memory.

3D printed in black stoneware clay using Unfold's latest ceramic 3d printer developed in collaboration with Viscotec.
