Declaration Grooming Gratiot League Square shaving soap
In the long and rich history of traders in early Saint Louis, there is one name that often gets looked over when talking about the Choteaus and Lacledes: 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.

This is one of DG most complex smells in my opinion. The leather and musk are strong, especially in the tub. During lathering it gets lighter. The musk is not for everyone. A complex fragrance for autumn and winter. The base is top tier.
