Exotic Packaging: Caswell-Massey Orchard Soap Plum

This is another of the soaps I bought for my mother in New York City in late autumn 1993.
Lovely soaps, wonderfully wrapped in richly coloured tissue paper inside beautifully designed boxes.

Caswell-Massey were the oldest chemists and perfumers in America, established in 1752. Amazing! I remember it was a wonderful shop and I am delighted to report the company is still going strong. Although nothing on their website today is quite as lovely to look at as this packaging... but you can't smell the products online can you? Well, perhaps I should take myself off to Fortnum & Mason because apparently you can buy their products there. OK.
