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 long and rich history of traders in early Saint Louis, there is one name that often gets looked over: Charles Gratiot, Sr. Originally a fur trader from Montreal, Charles Gratiot moved to Saint Louis and established a robust trading business in the time of westward exploration. Eventually marrying into the Choteau family, Gratiot bequeathed a league of land to Saint Louis to encourage its expansion. The Gratiot League Square contains parts of historic Forest Park; Saint Louis’ Irish neighborhood, Dogtown, and Italian neighborhood, The Hill; and Chatillon Lux headquarters.
This scent is inspired by Gratiot’s trade and features tobacco, leather, rose, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, musk, bergamot, and amber. This is the smell of a busy day in the Carondelet markets.
