… OR …luxurious Imperial Leather soap with its ‘manly’ fragrance of birch oil … This product dates back to 1768, when Russian Count Orlof commissioned a perfume from Bayley’s of Bond Street in London. The perfume was named Eau de Cologne Imperiale Russe, drawing upon the distinctive aroma of high-quality Russian leather with its birch oil fragrance. In 1938, Cussons Sons & Co. used the original perfume to create Imperial Russian Leather, later renamed Imperial Leather ~ highly promoted during World War II as the best choice for the war effort, since it lasted longer than other soaps. “One of the few luxuries still available to the discriminating.” That’s its history ~ but the subtle aroma reminiscent of saddling up in the stable can still work its magic in modern times!
Or perhaps the pinnacle of gifts: his own kilt in Scottish National tartan! An amazing price ~ while supplies last!
