CEYLON.

According to the Ceylon Customs Administration Report for 1906,

^^ there is a good opening in that Island for cheap

P rfkmifirv perfumery. During the last ten years, however,

* ^* the imports of British manufactures in this line

have remained practically stationary, while those from Germany

have increased by about five times. The value of imports of

rdmery from Germany rose from Rs. 18,000 in 1905 to
51,000 in 1906. The reason given for Germany's success in
this trade is that her supply is almost entirely confined to the
cheapest scents, which are in great demand in the villages and
in the interior. So cheap indeed are some of them that a phial of
so-called eau de cologne is now imported at a value of from 15 to
25 cents. It is merely slightly scented water containing no spirit^
its sole pretension to genuineness being the name and label. It
is noteworthy that all these imitation eavx de cologne are labelled
" qvalite No, 4," the reason being that a certain well-known eau de
€ciogne has the figure *' 4 '* on the label. The ignorant native
purchaser unable to read the European characters looks out for the
figure *' 4/' and is quite satisfied if he sees it on the label. Conse-
quently what was originally the number in a street where eau ds
cologne was sold has now become the mark of its quality.

The Report also states that toilet soap is another article in which
Ch^D Scented German manufacturers are competing with



Soap.



success, the imports from that country having
increased from Rs. 22,000 in 1905 to Rs. 25,000
in 1906. During the same period the exports from Great Britain
rose from Rs. 212,000 to Rs. 217,000, and though this increase is
|»t>portionately less than that of Germany, it must be noted that the
United Kingdom sends to Ceylon 84 per cent, of the toilet soap
imported. The increase in the quantity of soap imported into Ceylon
is very great. Ten years ago Rs. 189,000 worth (toilet and bar) was
imported, while in 1906 the total value amounted to Rs. 423,000.

152 THE BOAED OF TRADE JOUKNAL. [Oct. 24, 190T.

Openings for British Trade,

In addition to the soap imported, oils and soap berries are freely
used ; but the present standard of comfort demands a display of
soap — the more highly scented the better. Accordingly there is a
great demand for cheap scented soap, and of this the German
manufacturers make a speciality. There is probably no trade in
which there have been so many cases of infringement of trade
marks as the soap business. Many of the foreign soaps are put on
the market in a manner almost exactly similar to that of the best
English makes.
