The Journey to Clochard Deluxe
Belgium is not only famous for chocolates; it is also home to one of the best men's grooming products made by the one and only Christophe De Gauquier. Christophe is recognized, not only in Belgium but all over the world as a top grooming expert with rich experience in the traditional barbering trade.
Christophe is an alumnus of the Schorem Haarsnijder en Barbier in Rotterdam. At the “Old School”, he tapped some unique techniques, tips, tricks, and true barbering craft from Bertus and Nelis. After several years of perfecting his hairdressing and grooming skills in the small independent barber academy, in 2015, he opened the Men’s Grooming Christophe barbershop in Beringen.
Christophe is the first Belgian hairdresser and barber to be featured among the top 15 finalists of the 2016-2017 American Crew All-Stars Challenge. This achievement made him one of the best professional stylists and groomers in the world. As much as he didn’t get the award, at least he won some heart
The art of traditional barbering rings to many people as just hair cutting and styling. What most people do not know is that men’s grooming also features in the list of services offered in an old-school barbershop. For this type of service, more focus is directed towards creating a long-lasting barbering experience. You guessed it right, the use of fragrance.
Besides offering modern and traditional shaves, Christophe De Gauquier brings to the market a new line of men's cosmetics. Christophe’s burning dream of taking men’s grooming and hairdressing right back to the higher level it was, led to the development of a new cosmetic brand, Clochard DeLuxe.
Our Unique Product Line
The Clochard De Luxe brand consists of a broad range of barber products such as shaving, beard and hair products.
All our products are scented with the Virginian Woods fragrance. Cedarwood Virginian is actually a species of Juniper Tree, as reflected in its Latin name. It has an aroma similar to a freshly sharpened pencil, although more complex. Cedarwood Virginian is popularly used in products formulated for men, due to its woodsy, outdoor scent.
About The Clochard
There is a difference between our new cosmetic brand for men and those that flood the market. Clochard DeLuxe distinguishes itself from the crowd by specializing in fragrance families. For a very long time, barber products have always been a clash of scent families. This new brand rectifies this by creating a union, you can now choose to stick to one particular fragrance family.
We notice that most barbers and clients like using a mix of wardrobe products from different fragrance families. The Clochard DeLuxe brand is strict on having all men cosmetic products under one scent family. Up until now, men couldn't take care of themselves using one type of scent. With this new men’s cosmetic brand your skin, beard, and hair grooming experience are one.
What about using products with a scent for cold and sunny weather? Not known to us, most often we are naturally drawn to a particular signature scent from one fragrance family at different times of the year. There are seasonal products to keep any barbershop brand alive. If you are looking for that unique scent for spring, winter, autumn, and summertime then there is a variety on the offing.
Every order you make comes with a fixed original fragrance family. Clochard DeLuxe lets barbers explore an entire fragrance family as requested by the client or as a strategy to remain unique. Everything is done to make your client look and feel good, Clochard DeLuxe will take good care of your fragrance needs. If you are looking to introduce a special experience, then you can do so with a range of Clochard DeLuxe products.
