From Declaration Grooming:

Unconditional Surrender is a fragrance inspired by Ulysses S. Grant. After a heroic performance in the Mexican-American War, Grant slipped into a depression and drank his way out of the army. He returned to Saint Louis, struggling to find his place in life. After a few failed attempts to make a living, including selling firewood on a corner, Grant spent time working in his family’s tannery until he joined the Union army in the American Civil War.

Finding himself in a familiar role, Grant threw himself vigorously into his duty. One noteworthy performance that caught President Lincoln’s eye was the capture of Fort Donelson from the Confederacy. When asked for his terms when negotiating the surrender, Grant demanded unconditional surrender. This helped win him the top spot in the armed forces, as well as a level of fame that caused admirers to send him thousands of cigars.

The scent of Unconditional Surrender is an homage to Grant’s tenacity and will to fight back when he was at his lowest point. The scent notes are amber, tonka bean, amyris, cedarwood, agarwood, vetiver, cigar tobacco, black tea, jasmine and geranium.

    I love this scent. Super complex, very heady and the addition of tea gives it a musty, thick accord. The soap performs like a champ and is one of the easier soaps to lather.

    My girlfriend loves this scent. It’s a deep, warm, and woody oriental cologne scent.

    Unconditional Surrender (US) was my first experience with Chatillon Lux scents and I love it. The smell alone is enough to motivate me to buy the rest of the Chatillon Lux/Declaration Grooming (DG) line up.

    Performance: I loaded the soap directly from the tub using a damp synthetic brush. I lathered it in a shaving bowl, adding warm water as needed. The DG soap base has amazing slickness, lathers up relatively easy, and has a creamy soft feel on the face. I don’t notice a huge difference in slickness between the original soap base and DG’s new icarus base. However, I do find that the icarus base gives a more moisturizing post-shave feeling.

    I will buy again when I run out.

    A pleasant woody/spicy scent that is strong enough to last the entire shave and some. The performance is second to none…especially the slickness…probably the slickest slope I’ve ever tried. Can’t go wrong with any of the DG/Lux collabs…they’re all excellent.
