  • Chatillon Lux Salve After Shave Lotion Splash - Unconditional Surrender

    From Chatillon 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. Our 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. Our 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.

    Natural Ingredients: Denatured alcohol, chamomile extract, calendula extract, witch hazel, aloe vera, cat's claw bark extract, vegetable glycerin, menthol and fragrance

    Note: Rub a small amount 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 Story: This fragrance was inspired by Ulysses S. Grant. After a heroic performance in the Mexican-American War, Grant slipped into a depression and drank his way out of the army. He returned to Saint Louis, struggling to find his place in life. After a few failed attempts to make a living, including selling firewood on a corner, Grant spent time working in his family's tannery until he joined the Union army in the American Civil War.

    Finding himself in a familiar role, Grant threw himself vigorously into his duty. One noteworthy performance that caught President Lincoln's eye was the capture of Fort Donelson from the Confederacy. When asked for his terms when negotiating the surrender, Grant demanded unconditional surrender. This helped win him the top spot in the armed forces, as well as a level of fame that caused admirers to send him thousands of cigars.

    The scent of Unconditional Surrender is an homage to Grant's tenacity and will to fight back when he was at his lowest point. The scent notes are amber, tonka bean, amyris, cedarwood, agarwood, vetiver, cigar tobacco, black tea, jasmine and geranium.
