Like many others I miss Old Spice Fresh Lime as it was my favorite daily fragrance back in my teen years. OS Fresh Lime was my favorite from the Old Spice range and I have not gone back to the brand since they discontinued it. The balance of tart lime with spice aromatics of the original was the key to what made this lime fragrance so good. It was refreshing but had substance beyond the limes. Lime as a scent was the big trend back in the late 1960's mostly due to the success that Royall Lymes of Bermuda was having selling their pure lime fragrance on the men's clothing store fragrance counters back then. Most of the other common brands (Old Spice, English Leather, Pubman, Aqua Velva etc) felt compelled to offer up lime versions of the originals to grab some of that lime business. The most succussful of these trend riders was Old Spice Fresh Lime. Why it was discontinued is still a mystery . . . and a disappointment.
My brother originally received this as a gift back in high school and he gave the last half to me to finish off. Great clean manly scent with decent longeivity on me. Highly recommended.
Good aroma, tolerable lasting power, pretty unique for a mass market product of its time: citrusy and spicy, lots of quality for its price. I haven’t seen Old Spice Fresh Lime for a long time—would buy it if I could find it. Good memories there.
Some 24 years ago when I first met my husband Old Spice Fresh Lime was the only fragrance that he wore. Bill was and still is at 63 a severe asthmatic and that was the rare fragrance that did not trigger his asthma. It was very disappointing for us when it was not longer being produced. He now uses the regular Old Spice scent but I can honestly say that the Lime was by the freshest and most satisifying fragrance to me and he has tried many over the years since out of production. Please reintroduce this product once again. Thank you.
I loved Old Spice Lime. I never understood why it was put out of production. It smelled fantastic; very limey with the classic Old Spice undertone. Extremely masculine. It was an excellent cologne to wear in the Spring and Summer months.
