Vinolia was once a famous British brand producing finest quality soaps, shaving preparations and toothpaste but alas all that remains today is their luxurious Cold Cream Bath Soap. This very same soap was provided for all first class passengers aboard the RMS Titanic as well as in all public rooms of both the Titanic and the RMS Olympic (the flagships of the White Star Line). The shape and fragrance remain the same to this day and one side of the box still carries the original advertisement showing the soaps alongside a handsome colour illustration of the Titanic. This was in fact the only product to feature the ill-fated ship in advertising before she set sail. All other suppliers and partners had decided to wait until after her maiden voyage to New York as they considered the impact would be much greater then. Since she never completed the journey those other companies lost their opportunity to associate themselves with the Titanic, whilst Vinolia gained a rather macabre claim to fame in being the first and only one to do so.
