Motivated by the frigid mid-West winter of 2014, Shawn Maher began creating a nourishing, protective post-shave salve that restored his wind-chapped skin. Inspired by the response of testers, he launched Chatillon Lux in Dec. 2015. His business boomed as he added on other post-shave products with wonderful performance and exceptional scents, including a line of Eau de Toilette.
A love for his city of South Saint Louis, MO inspires Shawn to take his names and scents from the places and people that inhabited this corner of the heartland. Chatillon Lux is named for Henri Chatillon, a French fur trader and central figure on the Oregon Trail. He lived and loved with the Sioux people until the untimely death of his wife, Bear Robe. Upon returning to his hometown of St. Louis, he married Odile Delor Lux, daughter of the founder of Carondelet (South Saint Louis). The "most gallant a man . . . as ever shot buffalo", Chatillon is quintessential frontier man and inspiration for manly pursuits like wet shaving.
The scent is a fougere (a perfume classification for a green fern-like scent with a floral topnote) that was created for The Shave Market. This TSM Fougere encapsulates the smell of the Missouri Rhineland, an area west of St. Louis settled by German immigrant in 1838. The area (similar to that central European region) soon became a hot spot for visitors who enjoyed the rustic wineries and stunning scenery. Scents notes include a complex aroma of blooming flowers, sun drenched hills, and ripening grape vine. (Oakmoss, incense, lavender, vetiver, neroli, tonka bean, petitgrain, nagarmotha, clary sage, cedarwood, grass, musk, bergamot, grapefruit, Spanish moss, violet, geranium, violet leaf, anise.)
