Instead of carrying a satchel full of products like moisturizers, astringents, and healing balms, we combine everything into one product: our post-shave salve. The moisturizing properties of the glycerin and lanolin reinforce the all-around goodness of shea butter, avocado oil and coconut oil. After scraping your skin with cold, hard steel, witch hazel and aloe vera sooth irritation and battle redness. 

Additionally, our bearded brethren will find that the post-shave salve makes for an excellent beard balm that makes the beard soft as a rabbit's pelt while eliminating itchy or dry skin underneath. 

When Henri Chatillon was chasing buffalo on the Oregon Trail, he would have appreciated the all-encompassing powers of the Chatillon Lux salve. And since a dime-sized dab is all you need: a little bit goes a long way.

Instructions for use: Take your trigger finger and scoop a dime-sized amount (or about otter-paw-sized, if you are Henri Chatillon), then rub it between your palms until it reaches body temperature. Massage it into your freshly shorn, still damp skin. Make sure you take the time to really work it into damp skin for 45 seconds to a minute, which helps with absorption and allows you to enjoy the blooming scent. Depending on the dryness of the skin, the absorption time will vary. 

Shipping Notes: During warm weather, the salve may melt if the carrier leaves it in the sun or directly exposed to heat. To try to avoid any adverse effects, place the salves in the refrigerator for a few hours when they arrive during the summer months. 

Scent:  "The Professor" Jerry Thomas was the first celebrity bartender and wrote the original guide to bartending: The Bar-Tender's Guide: How to Mix Drinks or the Bon Vivant's CompanionHe had a famous stint at the original Planter's House Hotel in St. Louis and gained notoriety for a drink that was set aflame, then tossed through the air, back and forth between two mugs.


We created Bon Vivant as tribute to Jerry Thomas inspired by a whiskey drink with chartreuse and orange bitters. The scent itself is spicy and warm with a twist of citrus on the top. It is completely unlike any other scent creation that we have made thus far, and we are very proud to release such a sharp divergence from our scent lineup.

The notes include caramel, birch tar, black pepper, maple syrup, vanilla, patchouli, neroli, petitgrain, yuzu citrus, ginger, anise, juniper berry, white grapefruit, wormwood and coriander. 

Ingredients: Shea butter, witch hazel, avocado oil, coconut oil, aloe vera, cetyl alcohol, emulsifying wax, lanolin, and glycerin
