This Classic Scent Will Remind You of Grandpa
Papa will love this modern take on a nostalgic aroma.
Men are creatures of habit. It’s our duty as wives, daughters, and granddaughters to help get them out of their comfort zone. I mean who hasn’t gently or let’s be honest—forcibly—stepped in to remove that ragged, hole-ridden “favorite” shirt from their regular apparel rotation? With Father’s Day around the corner, we figured there was no better time to spice up the favorite men in our lives’ signature scent.
No matter if they’re using the last cologne you gifted them or they’re faithful to the one particular bottle they discovered years ago, we’re sure they have nothing like Maison Margiela’s ‘Replica’ At The Barber’s. It’s an out-of-the-box choice compared to many of the go-to gentleman’s fragrances we typically see at the department store, but that’s part of the reason why we like it. The name says it all: This scent evokes memories of old time-y barbershops.
WATCH: Things Only Southern Dads Know
Sometimes cologne is considered an obvious gift idea, but as soon as they unwrap it and take a whiff of its masculine blend, they’ll realize this is something special. Fresh notes of basil, lavender and tonka bean are paired with a white musk to immediately transport them to the barber’s chair, triggering thoughts of warm towels being draped over their face and shaving cream. Its bottle also pays homage to the silhouette of a classic apothecary jar, so even fathers with a simpler style aesthetic will appreciate its clean shape sitting on top of their dresser.
