Claus Porto artisanal soaps are hand crafted and scented with fine fragrances that draw inspiration from the flourishing Portuguese countryside.
The journey started when two German chemists fell in love with Portugal and in particular the city of Porto. With entrepreneurial flair Ferdinand Claus and Georges Schweder began creating soap and perfume in 1887, early success meant that just four years later they started work on their own purpose built factory.
Creativity followed through to the unique label designs and patterns which today offers an extensive archive of inspiration.
When the founders were forced back to Germany at the beginning of WW1 their company was bought by a Portuguese soap maker who renamed it Claus Porto. Happily the new owners appreciated the craftsmanship and techniques, four generations later and Claus Porto has kept its authenticity.
Today Claus Porto's hand crafted soaps can be found across the world in luxury department stores and well curated boutiques. At Scent Lounge we have many long-term Claus Porto customers but it is the excitement of a customer discovering the products for the first time that is a real joy. Attracted by the beautiful prints used on the packaging inspired by the archives, they are then delighted by the different perfumes and the tactile nature of the range.
The Claus Porto sets are some of our most popular gifting choices with our customers, every week we are wrapping and writing personal messages to lucky recipients throughout the world.
