In 1806 William Colgate, an English immigrant, founded a starch, soap and candle enterprise on Dutch Street in New York City. Colgate and Company began to venture into perfumery in 1866. 1872 saw the introduction of their landmark soap, “Cashmere Bouquet”, a milled, perfumed toilet soap. In 1906, the Colgate product line included 625 varieties of perfume, in addition to their dental products and perfumed soap! Today Colgate’s history as a perfume marketer is largely forgotten.
