The only products out of this collection that I haven't owned at some time are the Cream Wash and the Eau de Parfum. I love the regular wash in this collection and prefer clear washes since I feel that they rinse cleaner. I love the cream for the winter and the lotion for the summer. The cream is made for very dry skin and the lotion for normal skin. The cream is my overall favorite product, it has the texture of butter and is a great hydrator. The hand cream is one of the only products that I wouldn't repurchase from this collection. I felt that it was too thin to hydrate my hands well enough and since the natural lemon extracts made skin more sensitive to sumlight, I wouldn't want to be pulling this out of my bag to apply in the daylight. For that reason, I prefer the creams at night instead of during the day. The Eau de Parfum was too citrus for my taste and didn't last long on me at all. However, C.O. Bigelow has a Lemon Pomegranate body spray and is still fruity and much sweeter. The PR company sent me a sample of this and it perfect for casual summer days. In fact, I am wearing it right now...

Bath and Body Works has just recently released a new Signature Collection Men's line. When I worked there, men's products were high in demand and many people were very unhappy when the collection gradually became less and less available. However, the company has remedied this and I predict this new collection will be a smash hit among both genders. Bath and Body Works give the following as the general description of the new line of products, "Bath and Body Works introduces Signature Collection for Men, high-performance personal care products that will revolutionize the way men wear fragrance."
"Signature Collection for Men allows men to choose a scent for every occasion, every moment, and every day. Whether he's in the boardroom or riding a wave on his board; catching the game with friends or playing catch with his kids, this collection is designed to suit his lifestyle and give him the daily dose of personal luxury that he deserves. Infused into daily grooming essentials like body wash, deodorizing body spray and cologe, each bold new fragrance evokes a unique mood, from classic to cool, fresh to sexy, rugged to renaissance."
The four available fragrances are...
Citron - A modern citrus scent with notes of lemon zest and brisk woods, this fragrance captures the classic and seductive confidence of a man.
Noir - A combination of black cardamom and white musk makes a sophisticated and exotic scent for the modern man.
Ocean - A light, airy scent that complements an active lifestyle, this fragrance is blended with cypress, vetiver, and yuzu zest.
Oak - Embodying the rugged appeal of the adventurer, this scent balances cedarwood, musk, and bergamot for a modern twist on the classic woods fragrance.
This collection is currently available in three products...
Body Wash - Formulated with moisturizing Aloe Vera and nourishing Vitamin E, this energizing body wash is a bracing way to start the day.
Cologne - Bold, rugged, and masculine, the new Signature Collection Colognes gives each man an unforgettable signature scent.
Deodorizing Body Spray - Stay fresh all day with this all-over body spray, developed to provide deodorizing protection and long-lasting fragrance.
For my father, I would pick the Body Washes in the Ocean and Oak fragrances. I smelled these the other week at the store and my two favorites are the Citron and the Ocean. I think that both of those two fragrance are more subtle and I would use them in the washes.
