We always had Imperial Leather in the bathroom, the only soap my father would tolerate along with a pot of Nivea which he would use to soften his whiskers if he wanted a close shave. I remember my older sister using Camay. My grandmother always had Pears soap and I thought that was the kindest of all soaps. A shame they changed the recipe.
In October 2009, the formula for the transparent amber soap was altered from the original to become 'Gentle Care' and wrapped in an inner cellophane covering. The new soap was slightly softer in texture and lasted half as long, but its most noticeable difference was its scent.
