Our Founders

Dennis Paphitis Founder, Aesop

Aesop was born of a curious young man who was obsessed with quality, and deeply sensitive to the world around him. Dennis’s vision is manifested in every aspect of Aesop—from the quality of the ingredients used to formulate products, to the painstaking attention to detail evident in the design of each of the company’s stores around the world. Aesop has spawned many an imitation, which have served to demonstrate that while it may be possible to mimic Aesop’s outward character, its spirit cannot be pilfered or replicated.
