Scent Notes: Lamplight Penance and A Hero's Final Chapter

Scent Notes: Lamplight Penance and A Hero's Final Chapter

Although Lamplight Penance does not come out until Saturday, October 13, it has been a long time in the making. On my end, approximately two years to find the right way to tell this story. But considering when an electrician uncovered Henri Chatillon’s secrets underneath attic floorboards in 1967, it has been just over 50 years. And if we really look at the big picture, it all starts in 1845 in the wake of a heartbreaking event during an expedition led by Chatillon that would later be detailed in The Oregon Trail. The Story Behind the Scent Henri Chatillon was...

Scent Notes: Fourth & Pine and The Study of Citrus

  Creating the Fourth and Pine Eau de Cologne was like walking a tightrope between tradition and modernity. This isn’t wholly unfamiliar territory because that is the entire idea behind Chatillon Lux Provisions, however, but this was an extreme case. First of all, the history of Farina’s Eau de Cologne is a big part of Fourth and Pine’s story. The original mass-market fragrance, Eau de Cologne was a bright, citrusy personal fragrance.
