Maja, with its classic fragrance of rose, jasmine and other flowers is unchanged after 100 years -- it even contains some olive oil as did classic castile soaps of hundreds of years ago.
The family business is now operated by the third generation. Grandfather Esteban Monegal was a well known artist, sculptor and violinist who decided to produce a soap that would be a work of art as were his other creative endeavors. Thus he named the company Myrurgia -- or the art of making myrrh.
He created an elegant red and black wrapping for the smaller cakes of Maja soap that shows a beautiful señorita (or maja) coquettishly fanning herself. The cakes are covered by pleated black paper. Any room in which you place this 100% pure bar of soap will be filled with a mysterious fragrance.
This pack of three 3.5 oz cakes of soap is packed in a handsome box which you can use again for years to come.
(As with most Maja products, these were made in Mexico from the original formula. These bars are light green in color.)
