Maison Margiela’s REPLICATE At the Barber Scented Candle

Maison Margiela’s® REPLICATE At the Barber Scented Candle ($62) is sure to delight anyone (including a man who didn’t realize he loved candles). Inspired by an old-school barbershop, notes of lavender, tonka, and musk leave a finish as clean as a freshly shaved face.

Barber Pro Post Shave Cooling Mask Duo

For the man who has yet to try a sheet mask, consider slipping him the Barber Pro Post Shave Cooling Mask Duo ($17). While the name is lighthearted, the skincare ingredients in the cooling mask are serious: think witch hazel, tea tree, and collagen.
