Chatillon Lux, La Petite Prairie - 6/13 12PM EDT
Named after the former prairies and farmland that would become South Saint Louis City where Chatillon Lux is headquartered, La Petite Prairie breathes a modern breath into the classics.
While studying the structure of many of the classics over time, but imagining how our era’s tastes impact how the structure evolves, La Petite Prairie came out. This has a timeless composition of tea-like citrus, springtime florals, well-behaved herbal notes and vetiver from Haiti and Java. It is perfect for any occasion in any era.
Notes: vetiver, citrus, geranium, carnation, pineapple, rhubarb, rosemary and Sichuan pepper
Milksteak: The What and Why
Milksteak is my tongue-in-cheek name for the culmination of all of my soapcrafting experience to date. While the name may be whimsical, it was an incredibly difficult decision to deprecate Bison and Icarus - one I would not make without full confidence that I was releasing not only the best soap base I have ever developed, but one of the finest soap bases ever created.
Over three years of customer feedback, research, theorycrafting and, of course, love, went into this soap base. I focused on ease of use (softer than Icarus), slickness, and post-shave - all the hallmarks of a great soap.
I hope you enjoy it...and your jelly beans.
