    Ebay. Have read some on here don't like it, but not buying high price or niche have had very few issues. I usually only look at US listings so not sure what you will find, I would say that Limes is not real common but will see one sell every 2 or 3 months, maybe as low as $40 and up to $70 or so, sometimes more.

    To my nose, Royal Mayfair is a very lime-centric fragrance once the pine and eucalyptus subside. Lime, rose and orange on a pale woody base is what I get. I love the smell of lime and Royal Mayfair replicates it perfectly IMO.

    Eau D’Orange Verte. The best during the 0,00036 milliseconds it lasts.

    Wearing Gap The Natural again today.. it really is a fine long lasting lime scent, by far the longest lasting lime fragrance I have owned. It's still projecting after being on my skin for 7 or 8 hours now.

    Simple: CREED Bois de Cedrat. It is the most natural lime note possible, not too agressive, not too acid. A refreshing natural note. It doesn't last for long, but it is beautiful.

    It's not a straight-up lime scent, but Speakeasy has a great lime/ mojito note.

    Remembered another great one to me: Eau de Rochas Homme. And it lasts.

    The greatest (not my favorite) is Acqua di Gio.

    Crabtree & Evelyn's vintage Extract of West Indian and Sicilian Limes is still my favorite lime scent. Kind of hard to find though.

    Tom Ford's Azure Lime is also pretty good, but it takes many, many sprays to be satisfying.

    The lime lasted no more than 15-20 mins max if I recalled and that was with generous application.

    I'm not the most fluent in English so I may be mistaken but there are few different scents from citrus family/accord that I get a lot of in Eau D'Hermes. One of which I believe to be lime.

    Haha...yep! The last time I wore it I decided to go for the gusto and and lost count how many times I sprayed, but I know I also did several on my shirt, and that seemed to help a little.

    EdH certainly has a citrus component, though I don’t read it as distinctly lime. (The BN pyramid only names lemon.) If EdH is known for any one note, it’s cumin. Of course, it’s more complex than that—much. (It is Roudnitska, after all.) I’m just saying, if I were reaching for a lime scent, it wouldn’t be Eau d’Hermès. I’d look for something predominantly lime, like Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Lime or Crown Perfumery Spiced Limes.

    Simone Andreoli's Malibu. It's a tropical scent including rum and coconut, but the top has a distinct lime juice ice sorbet zing, and it hums with a lime peel vibe towards the drydown.

    Yes, the Extract of West Indian Limes from Trumper is easily the best I have smelled and smells just like invigorating natural lime. Alas, that 10 -15 minute longevity may even be generous. I view it almost like an aftershave. Still the few minutes you get are some of the best around.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)

    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6)
    Anat Fritz and its reissue, called Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie

    Bought this recently and have to agree it’s a nice scent. Definitely not the best though.

    I totally agree. Eau DHermes cannot be considered a Lime Fragrance. No. No.

    You see PS, you mentioning cumin made me realize we have different fragrance backgrounds and perspectives, I'm not a fan of citruses and am not used to it so my nose is sensitive to tiniest amount of it, something like Eau D'Hermes is as far as I can go, the same way I'm deep into animalics and often when people say fragrance X is a disgusting leather/cumin perfume, I think "ok the animalic aspects exist but are not as dominant as those heavy animalics that I'm used to"... I understand you feel the same about citrus groups and see my perspective as a lame lime novice! I honestly wanted to leave this thread to those who actually love citrus anyway

    And thanks, I try.
