Do you know Lili Napoli and her cinnamon soap? Follow the smell of this legend...

The 1920s in Montreal can be summed up in a few words: slave labour, alcohol, jazz, the blues and a loosening of morals. Bars, hotels, clubs abound, and brothels are in full swing.

I would like to draw your attention to one of these brothels run by Lili Napoli, known as "Miss Lili". This one, of Italian origin, exuded sensuality through every pore of her skin. Provocative, she would flank men's faces with her generous breasts to leave them breathless with desire. Her slender and infinitely long legs, her enticing gaze, her tigress body was ready to pounce on any man rich enough to treat himself to a torrid night in her company.

Miss Lili travelled the world as a libertine bourgeois, collecting lovers from exotic countries. But one day, tired of these incessant travels, and rich to the bone, she decided to settle in Montreal. Her second nature to facilitate gallant intrigues and carnal encounters led her to open a brothel located in the heart of the "Redlight". It quickly became the favourite of businessmen who were discreetly paying for a good time.

Many were unaware that Miss Lili's great success was not only due to her talents as a matchmaker. During a trip to China, the experienced woman had been introduced to the aphrodisiac virtues of cinnamon. Knowing that this spice, an accomplice of pheromones, paved the way for future pleasure, she had become accustomed to placing cinnamon in every room of her promiscuous home. She also prepared a cinnamon water that she sprinkled between the sheets to eroticize both males and females. Customers were addicted to the pungent smell and the effect it had on their sex drive.

Lili Napoli was the queen of matchmaking until 1929, when the Wall Street stock market collapsed, dragging economies around the world into the Great Depression. But Miss Lili didn't give up. She retired to the country and founded a cottage industry making cinnamon soaps. All her bars of soap distributed in major North American cities bore a distinctive sign: a heart printed in the centre.
