Caswell-Massey Jockey Club Soap Set


The original Jockey Club, first introduced at New York’s Plaza Hotel in 1840, is considered to be America’s first “sport” cologne and quickly became the favored scent from Saratoga to Churchill Downs. A breezy, casual fragrance, it was exceptionally fresh and long-lasting, superbly carrying you through an energetic afternoon playing polo or sailing your yacht. Increasing in popularity with every passing year, future President John F. Kennedy discovered it more than a century after it launched and remained a lifelong fan.

Our 1980’s Gold Cap version was inspired by the classic original, but took a decidedly modern, creative spin with an infusion of more citrus and floral notes, and adding precious woods. A masculine citrus amber blend, it exuberantly opens with an effervescent cocktail of citrus zest and sparkling bergamot. Lush jasmine and aromatic geranium tempered with amber form an evocative heart, as ylang ylang, sandalwood and musk invite a warm, sensual drydown.

Fragrance Family: Citrus Amber
Top Notes: citrus zest, sparkling bergamot
Heart Notes: jasmine, geranium, amber

With a masculine floral scent based on the Caswell-Massey cologne introduced in 1840, our triple-milled Jockey Club Soap features a plant-based glycerin base to thoroughly cleanse skin without over-drying. Carnation, spiced rose, thyme, and basil will scent your skin with a sophisticated, sporty aroma (think of the bouquets given to victorious Thoroughbreds) that signals its wearer is a man sure of his talents. This rousing masculine fragrance even became a staple of John F. Kennedy's grooming arsenal, cementing its place as every prepsters go-to scent.
