Elixir of Love by America’s Apothecary & Perfumery
February 15th, 2017
In honor of the season of love, this month’s featured product is Elixir of Love. The fragrance originates from a Victorian era formula discovered in the Caswell-Massey archives. The scent features a unique blend of jasmine, musk, and a hint of spice.
Founded in 1752 in Newport, Rhode Island, Caswell-Massey is America’s original apothecary and perfumery. The company stands as one of the foremost sources of scent and luxury in the United States.
The collection’s faithful following seeks the superbly crafted triple milled bar soaps, time tested remedies and extraordinary grooming accessories. The Elixir of Love collection contains the best of these talents with a set of bar soaps, luxuriously foamy shower gel, perfume, body lotion, and body dust with an exquisitely soft fur duster.
This enchanting line is tied together with soft yellow packaging and striking cobalt blue glass jars and bottles. The packaging incorporates history and elegance. According to Sadie Stein of NY Magazine the “sheer beauty” of the collection is part of what maintains its popularity. In her 2016 article entitled The Best Perfume Is Still the One I Discovered at Age 7, Stein goes on to say “It’s a classic, both Victorian and somehow Deco, unabashedly mysterious and old-fashioned yet sleek. And if you get the full array of lotion, body wash, and perfume spray, it instantly ups the glam quotient of your bureau or bathroom by a factor of ten. But the scent, like the packaging, manages to be timeless without dowdiness… It is, and always will be, the smell of — if not love, exactly — romance.”
Caswell-Massey has maintained its popularity throughout history and prides itself in maintaining a customer’s complete satisfaction. During more recent years, they established a reputation as a leading perfumer with celebrity clientele such as Jackie Onassis, JFK, Cole Porter, Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, and the Rolling Stones.
They still proudly manufacture in America to offer the Caswell-Massey experience. Caswell-Massey approaches nearly three centuries of production and brings out the best from their archives to create amazing new products to stay worthy of their legendary American brand.
