Company named after its founder, Eli Waite Hoyt, according to his biographical sketch: “at the age of fourteen years he became a clerk in the drug -store of E.A. Staniels…. at length was received as a partner in the business. Upon the death of MR. Staniels, in 1861, Mr. Hoyt, then twenty-three years of age, became sole proprietor.” Other than in name, the cologne has no connection with Germany whatsoever. In light of the high cost of producing sample bottles, the company would soak its trade cards in the perfume before delivering them to retail agents. They also mailed soaked trade cards to customers if they sent in a 2 cent stamp.
