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.
An homage to South Saint Louis' founder, Frenchman Delor de Treget, this fragrance is a modern chypre (a bright, refreshing citrus-centered perfume category with a heart of labdanum and a mossy base.) The bright energy that exuded from the tight-knit communities that sprung up out of the Missouri hamlet are the inspiration for this energetic scent. Notes of citrus (orange, peach, grapefruit) give way to a heart of clean florals (lily of the valley, rose, lavender) on deep undertones (cedarwood, labdanum, vetiver). A scent that emboldens and inspires.
