Mysore sandal soap.

Vintage design that epitomises Old Bangalore, and packaging that quite complements the scent inside.

The soap first floated into boudoirs in 1916 when Karnataka was left with barrels of sandalwood oil when export to Europe came to a standstill during WWII. Credit goes to the Maharaja of Mysore for being utterly ‘Lush-like’ and thinking up an exotic soap that is now hoarded by tourists trekking the sidewalks of MG Road in Bangalore.
