    I currently use Trumper's lime, it is excellent.
    50 sprays a day keeps the doc away

    Another for Trumper Lime.

    Truefitt West Indian Lime is quite good actually. Why not try the Pacific Shaving Company Caffeinated Shaving Cream?

    Can't go wrong with either Trumper's or Truefitt & Hill. My favourite from their (cream) lines are Rose or Violet from Trumper and 1805 from T&H.

    For the best lime though, Castle Forbes get my vote. I'm currently using their new 1445 shaving cream, even though I prefer a soap as simple as Palmolive (shave stick). The 1445 is one of the few decent shaving software available that have an authentic and agreeable-with-my-skin fougere scent.

    +1 for Trumpers. As Rum mentioned, Castle Forbes gets a vote.

    Cyril R Salter shave creams are fantastically underrated also. I previously had the Wild Rose which smells akin to Turkish Delight. Very nice stuff, all up. I don't think you'd be disappointed with any of the recommended.

    Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet is the only cream I own because the soap is dreadful - I prefer soaps to creams. Definitely worth looking into, its in the same vein as summer/citrus like a lime cream.

    Based on the shaving qualities alone (and I tried many including Trumpers and T&H) I would strongly recommend Cella soap and Speick cream.

    +1 for Cella. It's a great soap but I found it marginally drying. On the other hand, Vitos 'croap' (a soft soap) is fantastic and not dissimilar to Cella, whilst performing quite admirably. The Speick stick is also good (if you find one with tallow in it).
