    I own the Truefitt and am considering the Trumper, but will wait until I smell the Azure Lime 1st.

    I like all 3, but the Pens has the worst longevity, and the lowest doses of the complimentary notes, most of the notes which all 3 scents share. On the plus side the pens has the highest proportion of natural lime oil, hence it being the sourest/most serious. The Truefitt smells both of natural Lime oil, and synthetic lime oil, which is sweeter and somewhat candied when compared to the tart/sour scent of the pure natural oil. Adn the Truefitt also has the most neroli/petitgrain of them all, giving it the best longevity. The trumper is between the two, less carefree and fun than the Truefitt, but also more natural and tart. Despite any neroli/lemon, and synthetic oils, they all give an impression that is unmistakably Lime, and all 3 smell natural to anyone other than us note snobs here.

    Can't wait to try the Azure.

    Thanks for the advice. That was very detailed and very helpful!

    Well, judging by that review, I actually think that I will like Truefitt the most. I am all about fun and carefree scents. I like happy and energetic stuff.

    What kind of price range is that in?

    I tried this as part of Sniffapalooza this weekend and it is easily the most disappointing Private blend ever for me. It is depressingly linear and that would be fine but even the quality doesn't seem to be there. I would wear any of the Jo Malone lime fragrances, Trumper's, Penhaligon's, or Virgin Island water before I ever considered wearing this again.
    This is two in a row from the Private Blends Bois Marocain had some of the same linearity issues but it was better than Azuree Lime.
    They are going to have to start finding their way back to what they were doing a coiuple of years ago or this line is going to become an expensive joke.

    I wore Azuree Lime today and I's say it's mediocre overall. The smell itself is above average to me, I love lime, and Tom Ford does a fantastic job on the lime, but after it dries down a little it smells candy like/synthetic, a good synthetic though. This basically reminds me of an extremely light English Leather drenched in lime. Projection seems to be pretty poor and longevity is about 4 hours. Kind of a disappointment from the private collection, but a fantastic aroma.

    Ooh that sounds disappointing - thanks for posting your comments M.

    Tried Azure Lime today and I think it's f*cking fantastic. It smells like a long lost, 1970s, lime chypre. A very bright, ever-so-slightly synthetic lime and a dash of non-indolic white florals, over a base of what smells like real oak moss, sweet musk and some wood. Yum. This one has summer written all over it. No sickening Mojito b*llshit here. Congratulations Pour Monsiuer, you now have a wonderful grandchild. Could work on a man, but there is something wonderfully feminine going on here.

    Please stay on topic
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Got my sample -- love the lime. Pleasant scent and great for summer. However, it has pretty poor longevity on me. My vial is unmarked, so I'm not sure what the concentration is. The others of the Private Blend that I've tried have been EdP and good longevity on me. So that was a little disappointing.

    When I tried Azure Lime I was underwhelmed, but to be fair to the fragrance, I'm not a fan of citrus and I don't like lime. This frag wasn't meant for me anyway. ( Anyone else get a Rose's Lime Cordial vibe off of this...? )

    I agree, longevity is spotty on this.. especially in comparison to stuff like Tobacco Vanille and Noir de Noir. But it's kind of expected with a pure lime (for the most part) fragrance. Ya don't really see too many perfumes made that smell fruity, nor do you see many fragrances in general with fruity smells that last more than 6 hours.

    No doubt. Good point.

    I tried this one today.

    Im not a fan of the opening and I like citrus. Something about the citrus that reminds me of Bonds Little Italy. They may share some aroma chems. BUT.... Once I got pas that (maybe 20 mins) The florals, musk and woods are really really nice. I thought I also detected a soft leather note. I may be able to look past the opening but unfortunately it does seem a bit fleeting. I applied one spray to the back of the hand four hours ago and I can barely detect it. Its smells like an awesome skin scent but i like my scents a bit stronger. I got a sample so more testing and I will know if I need a full bottle of this.

    I've noticed that I need to use 6 sprays....which is ALOT for me to really enjoy it and pick up the middle and basenotes and gives me some sillage. I like the crisp Mojito like scent in the top note, but only lasts 15 minutes. Anything under 6 sprays and the fragrance dies out too soon.

    How does this compare to the lime in Bond No 9's Central Park?
