Rosebud Perfume Co.
Dr. Smith was born near Woodsboro, Maryland, on March 25, 1865. He entered the proprietary drug and medicine field and was registered by the Maryland Board of Pharmacy in 1902. Dr. George F. Smith founded the Rosebud Perfume Company in 1895.
The business began in a small drugstore located across the street from what is now known as the Rosebud Building in Woodsboro, Maryland. Friends and customers suggested that he prepare for them a family salve that could be used for various minor skin irritations. With this as a challenge, Dr. Smith formulated a product known as Smith's "Balsam of Rosebuds" which was later renamed Smith's "Rosebud Salve." Realizing its local popularity, Dr. Smith decided to advertise his product in country tabloids, and within a few years he had organized one of the most unique mail order businesses in the United States.
Several years later, Dr. Smith purchased the old Smith Hotel. He sold his drugstore and moved into the imposing brick building which has served as the home of Rosebud products for over 100 years.
