    Default Lime cologne recommendations

    Well, my last post lead me to this one.... What are some of the better colognes which one would classify as lime, or where lime is the main character so to speak of the scent?

    Did a little searching and Penhaligon's Dauro looks to be like it could be high on the list.

    Floris Limes is about as "lime" as you can get. Pure, and fairly longlasting for citrus, limes.

    You could also try:

    Geo F. Trumper West Indian Limes: more of a body tonic than a fragrance, but well put together. For a more structured you could try Penhaligon's Limes though it's a but synthetic. Then there is Guerlain Imperiale, which is composed of lime and lime blossom notes along with neroli, orange blossom, and tonka.

    (OK, I know...) Tilleul by Parfums D'Orsay. A wonderful linden scent.

    Also, Taylor of Old Bond Street No. 74 Victorian Lime.

    If you really want a full lime experience, be sure to try Truefitt & Hill's West Indian Limes shaving cream and after-shave in addition to the cologne.

    How about Jo Malone's Lime, Basil & Mandarin?

    Azuree Lime by Tom Ford did a great job of conquering a big fat lime note. Something much cheaper though would be Tommy Bahama Set Sail St Barts which takes on lime and tequila but has poor longevity.
