What is L’Esthète? L’Esthète, pronounced /lɛstɛt/, is a person who is appreciative of and sensitive to art and beauty. Originally, from Greek aisthētēs - a person who perceives. It can be the crisp flex of new leather. The subtly-blended scents of a wine cellar and the satisfying pop of the cork. Stories inspired and memories made in new places with old friends. Sometimes it’s the salt tang on the air and the soft breeze through palms; waves’ sound on far-off exotic shores. But it’s also the music of cities: that meaningful pause between frantic notes when here and now becomes something more; an elevated moment made just for you. An adventure, rewarding of its own virtue whether in your own backyard or beyond. But this is about more than seeking or finding life’s perfect moments. It’s about enabling you to create them; to enjoy at your whim – and reveal what you experience for others to appreciate. What can be everything you want it to be, from the solidly-crafted to the ethereally beautiful.

It’s better to ask who. You can find L’Esthète in everything: art, life, science, style, food, culture. But you won’t feel it everywhere.
