As you're well aware, Sunday was Father's Day. Without thinking (duh!), I got my allergy-stricken dad the Blue Collection from Space NK ($95) shown here. No really, he's had terrible allergies and I go and get him an eau de toilette to set things off again! All joking aside, he loved the gift, sincerely loved it and even sprayed it all over him (he then remembered I'm pregnant and to go easy on the scents!).
Dad was super-excited to get not only the fragrance, but a body wash and shave gel, too! Everything from Space NK seems to have that delightfully subtle scent, and this one is no different. To quote the Web site: "The aromatic blend of lime, grapefruit, star anise and basil is softened by geranium and amber and settles down onto a clean, woody base of cedar leaf, patchouli and oakmoss."
Now, this year, Sunday was not only my dad's day, it was D's first Father's Day, too! (well, pretty much!) I gifted him with three grooming items I thought he would love. (1) Kings & Queens King of Sumatra Pepper Bergamot Bar Soap ($6) (whew, long name!) at Beauty.com (2) Korres Absinthe Shave Cream ($22) at Korres and (3) C.O. Bigelow Hair and Body Wash ($10) from Bath & Body Works.
His thoughts? (1) Quality (and nice-smelling!) soap, but the bar was rather large, so it was too hard to use in the shower. (2) Pro: No razor burns, which is a major plus! Con: Slightly runny. (3) Used this for shampoo and loved! An all-around great cleanser with a nice, rich lather.
All-in-all, I think the dads were pleased as punch.
