Caswell Massey’s archival recipe for Number Six was notably the favorite of George Washington and the very first fragrance made in America in 1772. This soap is a surprisingly contemporary citrus woody fragrance that contains refreshing citrus, rosemary, and bergamot notes that find sophistication in the dry-down notes of rich amber and white musk. With skin-nourishing glycerin, this richly lathering soap reminds you that you’re worth the presidential treatment with each use.
