    Have you found a fragrance with a dominant lime note (not citrus mix) that you could recommend? Thanks.

    Stardust for Men has a dominant Mexican Lime note (very dense Key Lime note).

    My faves:

    Ormonde Jayne Isfarkand. Lime with a little pepper and wood.

    Virgin Island Water. Lime, coconut and sweet rum. But you have already tried/will soon be trying this. ;-)

    +1 for VIW. I love lime. I love coconut. Therefore this approaches nirvana for me.

    I am a big lime fan, but haven't quite found the one yet. Tommy Bahama Set Sail St Bart's is on the top of my lime based fragrance list. Notes of lime, tequila, and a little coconut is what I basically get out of it, dominated by the lime though which is great. Problem is.. notoriously.. its longevity is very poor. But, it is an excellent fragrance if you don't mind reapplying over and over.

    Above that though, if you can afford it.. Tom Ford's Azuree Lime. I guess this one is more or less just another lime fragrance to many, but I think it's excellent too. Mostly lime, with a little bit of a leathery thing going on in the background, but very subtle. Again longevity though may be an issue, and considering this is perfume strength I believe, it's not worth the money, since it only lasts about 4 hours.

    The Floris, as Griff says, is I think what you're looking for. It doesn't last long, but then again natural lime fragrances don't last long.

    Also try Moustache Concentree by Rochas (the vintage one).

    I gave Virgin Island Water a store sniff today and while I'm not a big citrus fan, it was pretty impressive use of lime for sure.

    Virgin Island Water and Nouveau Bowery are my favorite two lime fragrances. Although, VIW is more of a tropical scent while Nouveau Bowery is more lime oriented. Like a sparkling lime popisicle with a herbal basil background

    Curated by Colette As:4 by Colette - best use of a lime note in any fragrance I've smelt though sadly only a couple hundred bottles were ever produced. Probably impossible to find some now.

    Equal parts lime, pepper and cedar, L'Artisan's Navegar is an absolutely excellent fragrance. Sweet yet salty, spicy yet fresh, cool yet warm - a scent full of contrasts. Lime is really the only citrus note I pick up, so I'd consider it lime dominant in the sense that it's very prominent through a good portion of the fragrance.

    ViW has an excellent lime note, and is a beautifully balanced fragrance, but if the OP wants a solo lime show (however brief and ephemeral) then the T&H or Trumpers Lime fragrances is what I would recommend.

    I think this one is a wonderful scent, but I don't even get 4 hours out of it. As has been mentioned, though, natural citrus just isn't something that's going to stick around very long.

    Amouage Bahjah Attar has a very prominent lime note. The notes from TPC are, a blend of Deer Musk, Frankincense Oil, Lime Oil and various noble woods. The lime is very bright, and uplifting. Being an attar, a little goes a long way. The lime lasts for hours.

    I agree on Moustache Concentree. Pretty good longevity. Also look at Royall Lyme; like many others, though, it is fleeting.
