Chatillon Lux Yuzu/Rose/Patchouli Post-Shave SalveChatillon Lux
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.
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.
