Knowing what we do about 19th century Englanders, we might wonder about the financial viability of a Soaperie such as Lavender's fine establishment here. One might especially wonder what a "french soap" might have smelled like! In all seriousness, British soap manufacturers such as Yardley of London have existed since the seventeenth century, during the reign of Charles I. Perhaps Lavender's Soaps and Sachet's is a purveyor of their fine product.
