Enjoying Kailash by Pineward Perfumes because it's dry and smoky which I find to be complimentary of the smell of smoked meats and cheese.

I'm enjoying Halston 1-12 (EA version). I've always been a fan of the top notes but the drydown was either to feminine before taking on some dirty, not-too-pleasant aspects. I kept it around mostly for the bottle design and the occasional top note sample.

I currently don't have any true summer scents. Missoni Pour Homme is the only light smell, and the rest of my collection skews towards the old school. So I said, what the heck, the Halston is kinda light.

Man, it was like seeing an old friend again. It's one of those old school scents that just comes across as dapper, while not being crude, heavy, or overly musky like some of its peers. It's not an outright summer scent, but I was appreciating it in the evening. It's not better as an aura scent as opposed to sticking your nose to your wrist.

Anyway, it's one of those underrated gems, imo. I wish they still made some accompanying products to go with it, like shaving cream and shower gel.
