With a history dating back to an apothecary shop opened in Newport, RI in 1752, Caswell-Massey has a longer pedigree than the United States itself. And the high-end purveyor of personal care products claims just as rarified a pedigree among its clientele, beginning with President George Washington, who reputedly used its Number Six (of twenty) cologne and made of gift of it to another Revolutionary War hero, the Marquis de Lafayette.

Now based in Edison, NJ, the company’s offerings include the Presidential Soap Collection, a three-bar set of triple-milled, 5.8-ounce bath soaps in a presentation gift box. It includes Washington’s Number Six, the Almond Cold Cream Caswell-Massey says Dwight Eisenhower and his wife brought to the White House, and Jockey Club, reportedly used by John F. Kennedy. 

The Presidential Soap Collection retails for $28, and is available from The Corporate Marketplace, Inc.
