Our aftershave toner may lack the attention grabbing nature of an alcohol-based splash or the face freeze of menthol, but it makes up for it with healing properties that will continue to aid you through a long day.
Our astringent tonic heals and moisturizes your skin with aloe juice and chamomile that calm the burn, while the astringent properties of witch hazel, in tandem with calendula and elderflower extracts, eliminate redness while tightening and toning. Additionally, vegetable glycerin and lanolin moisturize and nourish your skin, leaving you feeling soft, supple and ready for a hard day of exploring the riverfront.
At the advent of the 20th century, Saint Louis was known as the Fourth City. As they prepared to host the 1904 World’s Fair, an explosion of arts, culture and commerce took place. Coincidentally, in what was to become Forest Park and Washington University in St. Louis, the Summer Olympics took place that year, as well.
The smell of La Quatrième Ville seeks to recapture that time of refined character and ambitiousness. A refined, masculine smell brings back the bustle of Forest Park during the World’s Fair: the woods, attractions and waterfronts are reflected in the vetiver, cypress, incense, nagarmotha, violet leaf, benzoin, and cardamom.
