This limited edition collaboration between L&L Grooming and Chatillon Lux is the embodiment of a Midwestern prairie in an early summer midafternoon on the Oregon Trail. After reading about the adventures of Henri Chatillon in the memoir, The Oregon Trail, Herman Melville called Chatillon the most gallant man to ever kill a bison. And it is the bison tallow that helps give the L&L Grooming shaving soap its superior slickness and protection. While the lanolin, an ingredient that both L&L Grooming and Chatillon Lux hold in high esteem, contributes to a refreshingly nourishing post-shave feel, the soap’s nourishing properties go even further to include the extracts of sea buckthorn, burdock root, white willow bark, and grape seed featured in L&L Grooming’s aftershave formula.
When summertime blooms and the bison graze, the smell of these Midwestern fields fills their nostrils. As Chatillon and his Sioux companions cautiously approach under the cover of a nearby thicket, the smell of lavender and the undergrowth are beaten out by the sun, directly overhead. To capture the smell of that afternoon, Champs de Lavande uses two types of lavender, ylang ylang, eucalyptus, rosemary, bergamot and black pepper to create an elegantly simple scent.
