It works wonderfully on my hands - a slight lotion-y feeling, but not greasy or heavy. If you love this scent, you'll love the lotion, which makes the scent last all day long. If you can't stand a strong cedar/woods/patchouli note, this is not for you. I'm in the latter category, the patchouli-ness is really getting to me. Such a shame, because it's a great formulation. But the fragrance is not a side issue here, it's predominant and *strong*.
