Some history:
Victor Vaissier – was a much beloved producer of hand soap originally launched in 1857. This was around the time that medical personnel were finding the benefits of regular hand washing included less deadly infections, so the demand for soaps of all kinds was growing. He opened his first shop in 1889 in Paris, on Boulevard 4, Place de l’Opera.
With his exotically-named blends such as Des Princes du Congo and beautiful packaging, Vaissier quickly became official purveyor to the King of Belgium and the Russian Tsar.

But no matter who he was providing for, the idea was the same: olive oil-based soaps infused with Frenchmade perfumes sold at reasonable prices.

In 1890, he built a white and red marble chateau in his hometown, Roubaix. Large and fantastical, the chateau served as his home until he died in 1923. With no heir, the soap company and Chateau Vaissier both fell into disarray. Victor Vaissier closed and, though the name was still well-regarded in France, was assumed lost to history.
