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 the healing, nurturing elements of our toner, but with the bracing feeling of alcohol 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.
In the early days in the trading village of Carondelet, now part of South Saint Louis, the residents of Saint Louis proper referred to the neighboring trading hamlet as Vide Poche, French for “empty pockets.” The industrious spirit and underdog mentality both inspire the artistic renaissance currently taking place in South City, as well as this scent, titled Vide Poche.
The warm, vibrant feeling of South Saint Louis and Carondolet is conveyed with a gourmet combination of amber and sweet orange, with added sweetness coming from a garnish of geranium and honeysuckle. Driving the entire scent is our workhorse combination of lavender and bergamot.
