Yankee Candle Barbershop Collection (£13.99)

Have you heard of the new trend for “mandles”, also know as candles for men! Fragranced candles for me have become all the rage recently, so we would whole heartedly recommend this new range from Yankee Candle. Introducing the Barbershop Collection. Taking a departure from Yankee Candle’s typical fragrances, this range focuses on fragrances usually seen in more male centric products, such as sandalwood, cedarwood and tobacco. They smell amazing!

The candles come in a a glossy black finish with a chrome lid, therefore aligning to the classic barber look. Fantastically modern and contemporary, we love them!

Fragrances include Hair Tonic, Hot Towel, Sandalwood, Chrome and Barbershop. Available for £13.99 from Yankee Candle http://www.yankeecandle.co.uk

Braun 3 Shave & Style (£139.99)

There’s a new 3-in-1 solution for the man who wants to have the freedom of choice between a clean shave and a precise beard style with one device.

Established ProSkin technology pairs up with a set of changeable beard trimmer attachments in Braun’s S3 Shave&Style range. Cutting edge technology and premium craftsmanship work to provide sharp beard styles and the utmost precision.

The shaving head attachment works in straight, intuitive strokes so you don’t need to circle over the same spot twice, helping to minimize skin irritation.

The perfect tool for the man who seeks freedom of choice, without the compromise of a close, comfortable shave.

Want to try out a stubble or beard look? Just switch the shaving head for the trimmer head, plus one of the 5 combs, and you can precisely trim between 1 and 7mm. Great results that are even, exact, reliable and repeatable.
