This story is so extraordinary you see, as Edmond was born into slavery in St. Suzanne, on the island of Réunion. Young Edmond discovered an efficient and profitable technique to pollinate the difficult to cultivate vanilla orchid, at the innocent age of 12. Despite opposition from Jean Michel Claude Richard, a botanist who alleged that it was he who discovered the technique to hand-pollinate vanilla in Paris. It was this same botanist, who claimed that he had gone to Réunion in 1838 to demonstrate to a small group of horticulturists, and that young Edmond, allegedly, must have been present to see the technique to steal it for himself.
While he was never rewarded monetarily, Edmond was awarded with affirmation of his contribution to the vanilla cultivation industry, his freedom and a last name… Albius.
Our Albius scent is complex, just like the life of its namesake. It holds notes of readily available luxuries of the time, such as vanilla bean, shea butter and santalum, and oils of orange peel, nutmeg, patchouli and cedarwood. Sensuously gender-neutral.
An ultra-creamy, dense lather with big bubbles that caress your skin, makes up this luxurious bar. We all could use a little help with the challenging task of retaining our skin's natural moisture.
No tightness, no dryness, no b.s. (bad stuff). Loved by our family & friends, trusted & loved as gifts by our customers worldwide.
