    Lime falls short on me. Kind of an oxymoron.

    I'd reach for Enrico Sebastiano Fine Cologne, though it's not just lime.

    I'll be interested in seeing the answers. I really like lime, but have never found one to my liking that lasts more than an hour or so. Afraid to say that citrus scents just don't last well Orgoglio.

    I have Trumpers, but its terribly light not long after application.

    Aromatic Lime for me although longevity is fleeting.

    I have yet to meet a lime that is longlasting.

    Iceberg Twice for Men is quite good. I applied it today at 12:00 P.M. (it's 1:16 am now) and I can still smell the lime and sandalwood drydown on my shirt. I'll be honest that it's not of the highest quality ingredients, though.

    Rochas Moustache has a prominent lime note among other things.

    Azure lime puts up a fight before dying down, to the reality of it being a lime based perfume.

    Crabtree & Evelyn's West Indian Limes lasts quite well, though there is more to it than just lime.

    Azure lime by Tom Ford lasts 6-8 hours, a truly rich lime fragrance, very linear..

    Central Park is for me but if you want a pure lime, try penhaligon's west indian limes.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    How in the hell do you get 6-8 hours of lime on your skin? I am lucky to get a minute with Azure Lime.

    Try Truefitt & Hill's West Indian Limes...it's got better longevity than most of the others I've tried.

    Yes, and hubby finds it so as well-- he's very happy with it from using the samples he got, and is planning to buy a bottle soon-- and this is a man who won't buy scents with poor longevity. However, it is probably more the basil note that persists; citrus notes as a whole do not have good longevity.

    Floris Limes | Lime and nothing but lime. Like a lime Eau de Cologne. And it lasts a pretty long time for me.
