Yardley London has a long association with soap, dating back to the 17th century when the Yardley family paid King Charles I to grant them a concession to manufacture soap for the people of London. Now that we're running a promotion offering FREE luxury Guest Soaps worth £6.75 when you spend over £15 at Yardley London, we thought we'd share a little of this history with you.
 
Yardley London's signature fragrance is Lavender and it was Lavender that was first used to perfume their soap. In 1851, the company exhibited soaps and perfumery at the Great Exhibition in London and the Old Brown Windsor Soap, carrying an embossed representation of Windsor Castle, was one of the first soaps that Yardley created.
 
Yardley London continues to be famous today for high quality, luxury soaps, infused with their beautiful, classic fragrances. There are now six fragrances within the soap range; English Lavender, Lily of the Valley, English Rose, April Violets, Royal English Daisy and Citrus and Wood.
