Chatillon Lux Yuzu/Rose/Patchouli AftershaveChatillon Lux
In the bold tradition of the explorers, adventurers and homesteaders who made South Saint Louis such a rich melting pot comes an aftershave that reflects that nature. Chatillon Lux's first alcohol-based aftershave product has some of the healing, nurturing elements of our toner, but with the bracing feeling that comes from an alcohol base with a touch of menthol for a cool, refreshing feeling after a great shave.
Whether you have oily skin or just want to feel like a stiff, bracing breeze off of the Mississippi River is blowing across your face, our aftershave splash combines the best of both worlds: an alcohol-based splash that actually cares for your skin instead of leaving it a barren, dried-out wasteland. Their aftershave cares for your skin in the same way that Odile Delor Lux welcomed Henri Chatillon back to their home after months of pounding the trail.
Note: Rub into still-damp, freshly shorn skin. To get the full effect of the aftershave, it is best to let the skin remain slightly damp upon application.
Scent: There is a lot to be said for the beauty of simplicity. Especially in shaving. Many of the so-called advancements over time tried to improve something that did not need improving. We see the beauty in slow shaving: taking more time to not only do it better, but do it by the dint of your own, personal skill.
The same can sometimes be said for scent, or any type of art. It can be impressive to blend a bunch of different and interesting elements. But often the most interesting works take sparse, solitary elements and work fastidiously to blend them to perfection.
Henry Shaw is responsible for Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden in Saint Louis. In that garden, flowers and plants from the Far East coexist to species native to the Saint Louis are. In this scent, reflective of Shaw's oasis in South City, the uniquely distinct smell of yuzu citrus, blended with the unmistakably recognizable smell of rose and the dry, sharp scent of patchouli come together so all three work together in unison to create something greater than the sum of their parts.
