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. Try Chatillon Lux Aftershave, Gratiot League Square.
This traditional, alcohol-based aftershave splash has the healing elements of toner, but with the welcome cooling of alcohol & menthol. Loaded with simple nourishing ingredients, this grooming requisite will scratch the itch of those who love the bracing feel of a classic splash. Contains chamomile extract, witch hazel, aloe vera, vegetable glycerin along with alcohol and menthol -- to leave you refreshed and soothed.
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.
During the prohibition era of the 1920s, Dint Colbeck ran a St. Louis smuggling ring, Egan's Rats, whose influence in swilling gin extended to Al Capone in Chicago and all the way to the White House. After a stint in the pokey, Colbeck attempted to stay on the straight-and-narrow as plumber but some shady dealings led to an untimely (thought not unexpected) death at the end of a barrel. This scent reflects the life and times of a Missouri crime boss. Notes of juniper, citrus, cardamom, coriander, nutmeg, and anise contribute the botanicals of gin, but won't smell boozy on your skin.
