A new line of deliciously scented, French-milled soaps by the Denver-based soap impresario and designer Margot Elena Wells. TokyoMilk soaps come in four scents (Rosewood, White Linden — my favorite, Exotic Woods and White Vetiver), and are wrapped in charmingly illustrated linen paper. Wells, a self-taught illustrator, designs all of the finely detailed packaging. In addition to soap, she also has a line of clever, hand-drawn note cards. Attach a card to one of the soaps, and you have an inexpensive but appealing host or house-warming gift.”

“Enigmatic venturer Éric Cosson came to us with an idea for a range of high-end skincare products. They would be made using effective concentrations of precious and unusual ingredients, such as oyster extract and snake venom, sourced from all over the world.
Together we developed a brand that reflected the high-tech exoticism of Éric’s concept, and a range of packaging to clearly express the unique properties of each product.”

“For USPA’s Supernatural hair care range the package design needed to express their philosophy – the combination of age-old botanical wisdom with the latest chemistry. The twist-cap extending up and out of the bottles represents nature and growth with the translucency revealing the technology of the mechanism. A rich colour palette, combined with bottle forms that orientate in a variety of configurations, allow strong merchandising options.”

Inspired by their Canadian heritage, identical twin design duo DSquared² created the fragrance He Wood with an outdoorsy vetiver scent.
“(The bottle) was inspired by a trip to our home country, where they have these bottles of maple syrup at the duty-free shop that come in a wooden box to protect it like it’s precious. Plus we liked the idea of the contrast of warm wood and a cold glass bottle.”
The square bottle cap and bottle shape play on DSquared²’s brand name, and the natural characteristics of the red alder wood means no too bottles are identical.
