    Lime is one of my favorite flavors- I plan to try a bunch of those shaving/barbershop limes this summer.

    Trumpers, Trufit & Hill, St. John’s, Floris Lime, Castle & Forbes, etc.

    Here’s an old Lime Cologne thread from 2 years ago that’s got some good suggestions:

    MFK's Aqua Celestia combines both lime and mint into a rather impressive presentation.

    ROJA's Kingdom of Bahrain has IMO the best lime in the business set on top of a plate of various woods. a great "cold weather" lime.

    Alexandria Fragrances Hawaii Volcano Intense (It is a clone of Creeds Virgin island water, and the intense version is more limey). Its a good one worth checking out, the lime in it is very nice

    I enjoy the creamy lime of Le Vetiver Bluff by Lubin.

    The original silver plated bottles of Guerlain Homme is the best “lime” fragrance, in my opinion. The later versions are also good, but those early versions were wonderful. GHLB also is a really nice lime scent.

    .

    Probably not. My guess is he’s interpreting SV’s citrus component as containing lime.

    I struggle to reply on this thread because all of my top three limes are so very hard to come by, with one of them being a true unicorn. For reference, to me unicorn fragrances are ones that not only are nearly impossible to find but also impossible to find information on. Having said that, I’ll give you one of my favorites that can still be found albeit for high prices... Crabtree & Evelyn Extract of West Indian & Sicilian Limes.

    Hi dear, I've tried Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Lime Cologne and is excellent (although prevalently focused on vetiver and neroli and quite spicy), try also I Profumi di Firenze Limone di Sicilia and Ortigia Lime di Sicilia for a more straightforward take on lime.

    Thank you so much for that feedback, Darvant. I will try your recommendation.

    Warm regards


    Update: probably will be a while before I can try the Ortigia. They want $45 to ship 30ml to the USA. I’ll have to wait until I can find a better source than the manufacturer direct.

    Agree.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Picked up a 99% full tester of this last year at a decent price.... wonder if it's stil available easily or has went into gouge-price mode? This has to be top choice, but a somewhat similar option that you can easily get is Floris Limes........ That's if you are looking for LIME.... not 20 other scents or a regular fragrance, but you really want to smell... LIME!!!
