    British Sterling H.I.M.: A fabulous fragrance for Father's Day gifting

    My husband has long searched for a scent to call his own. Throughout our decades together he's tried this one or that, received various scents and smells as birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, Father's Day gifts and gifts to himself as he sought out a scent to perfectly please his senses — and mine.
