Thread: Azure lime

  1. #1

    Default Azure lime

    Is it true that it is one of the best lime flavors out there?

    it smells really nice at the opening but the drydown is less than to be desired , i say virgin island water has better staying power on me personally.

    Its nice, love the opening. It leaves me wanting more. I probably apply 2x the amount as I would of my other frags to get the full appreciation of the fragrance. My wife likes it on me so that is a bonus.

    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I love it. It is one of those scents that you smell and it makes you refreshed.

    Just a basic zesty lime, with a slightly leather dry down. Has good lasting power for a lime based frag - 6 hours.

    I think Azure Lime is a great lime fragrance, it just costs too much money.

    Try West Indian Limes by Crabtree & Evelyn. Also try Royall Lyme.

    Virgin Island Water by Creed is nice, but I get more coconut than I do lime out of that fragrance.
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    Azure Lime is absolutely gorgeous, but I just find it to be a bit short-lived and subtle for the price.

    um... i was most unimpressed, which is to say i actually thought it was not only bad, but unexpectedly bad for Ford's lineup to boot. Almost no longevity and very little silliage. I've been thinking about lime though and besides the West Indies, or Royal, the best two I've found instead are Malone's Sweet Lime and Cedar or Bond #9's Central Park. I'm deciding between those two latter ones for now.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    And it's not even close.
    The best Limes IMO are:

    Truefitt & Hill West Indian Limes
    Creed Virgin Island Water
    Penhaligon's Extract of Limes
    Trumper West Indian Limes
    Guerlain Imperiale

    Even Royall Lyme and the Jo Malones are much better

    Default Re: Azure lime

    Can anyone recommend an "azure lime" type scent without the "dirty" lime top that has better longevity and projection?

    I love azure lime but there's a few probs with it, the biggest one being that you have to use like 3x as much as any other normal tom ford private blend scent to get the same projection and longevity is basically 3-4 hours on a hot day.
