So lovely to see my great grandfather's name on one of his original products. What a treasure! I remember visiting my grandfather's lab at his home in Willsboro, N.Y. as a little girl. He had hundreds of bottles filled with all of the scents of the world! My Grandad would give me "smell tests". I would close my eyes and he would wave a scent under my nose....geraniums, violets, rose, mint and freshly mowed grass. He was so talented. My mother would cook meals and he could guess the exact spices and amounts in each recipe. So happy that the Kiehl Pharmacy is acknowledged and preserved in this museum!
