    Default Better than Geo F Trumpers Limes...

    I LOVE GFT's Limes Cologne but it only lasts 1 hour on me... are there any other limes scents that smell similar but last longer??

    Citrus scents tend to be short-lived. The more natural they are in terms of ingredients, the more short-lived. Have you tried Crabtree & Evelyn's West Indian Lime? It is pretty good: lime with a woody note. But I can't guarantee that it lasts longer. I think this sort of scent is made to re-apply during the day.

    Penhaligon's lime is very similar and better, but not longer lasting.
    Floris is surprisingly dishsoap-esque.
    St. John's lime is really dishsoap-terrible.
    Truefitt's is sweeter and longer lasting, but not so sweet that it isn't classy.
    I'd sample truefitt's and Pen's, and see if truefitt's isn't too sweet for you.

    Also recommending Crabtree & Evelyn's West Indian Lime, more of a sour lime than the GFT which smells to me like Country Time Lemonade.

    Geo F. Trumper GFT - the longest lasting citrus I've ever known. Though it maybe not as natural as others, but still pretty damn good.

    If you want a pure, authentic lime, then unfortunately Trumper is the only way to go as it is the most realistic lime frag available on the market, from anyone. Of the other suggestions I think T&H and C&E are the best options, but neither are a pure lime like Trumper - T&H is more of a floral citrus after the lime opening goes and C&E is a fresh and lightly powdery citrus.

    The fact is that a true linear citrus scent will never last very long.

    That is a good observation.

    If one is willing to combine the lime with something else, you may get more duration (even lime) out of it.

    For lime, the one that impressed me somewhat was Jo Malone's Lime Basil Mandarin. I get good longevity out of it. But you have to like basil with your lime.

    Indeed - really good stuff, but the basil is very prominent in that one and I think the mandarin also overpowers the lime very quickly.

    i really like trumpers but you are right it does not last..i really like truefitt and hill, but its stronger, more barbershop lime than geo's natural lime smell, which in my opinion sets it apart.

    Royall Lime is nice but it smells like hard candy lime flavor tastes. Malin and goetz makes a true lime frag, but i dont really love it...its very sharp.
