Reviews of Azure Lime

It is amazing how similar this scent is compared to the much lower-priced Set Sail St. Barts by Tommy Bahama. Having enjoyed that gorgeous French Caribbean excursion in a bottle, I had to try and test out Tom Ford's Azure Lime.

Definitely a scent with a clean, pleasant lime experience. I would think that Azure Lime is also attempting to recreate the tropical experience of a blue sky on a white sandy beach, given the use of "azure." And it doesn't disappoint, a citrus-woody-floral-fresh EdP that, albeit with short longevity, creates a vibrant emotional response with layers of exotic notes "painting" a wonderful picture.

Is it worth the full bottle price? I don't think so, personally; St. Barts achieves a similar effect for FAR less per ounce, frankly. But in its own right, Azure Lime is great to have in decant form, IMO.

This is a really beautiful barbershop lime fragrance for men. I smell basically a tart yet slightly sweet lime with hints of mint, and that's basically it. The overall impression is very refreshing and very realistic to the scent of lime (does not smell like lime Jello or candy at all). Sillage is moderate (more on the lighter side actually) while longevity is also moderate but on the weaker side, which is to be expected from a lime fragrance (this is actually one of the stronger ones). Overall a very beautiful concoction that was discontinued by Tom Ford.

English Leather Lime replica to my nose. Just like my dad splashed on his face and chest following his morning wet shave. Nostalgic for me, not something I actually wear.

Azure Lime. Where to begin. This smells almost exactly like Set Sail St. Barts by Tommy Bahama. Except that I smell the lime much better in the opening of the St. Bart's than I do with Azure Lime. I also smell a lot of salt and an aquatic drug store after shave smell from both of them, but it develops over time with the St. Bart's and it's present throughout with the Azure Lime. Azure Lime is a very linear fragrance without much change during the 4 hours that it lasted on my skin. The St. Bart's had nuclear longevity and sillage on me, but the Azure Lime didn't make it past the 4 hour mark. I wasn't enjoying the fragrance all that much anyway, but that's pretty disappointing for a frag this expensive. The St. Bart's was $20.00 for 3.4 oz. at Nordstrom Rack. The Azure Lime is $220.00 for 1.7 oz. at many outlets. So, to do the math, that's $5.88 per ounce for the St. Bart's and $129.41 per ounce for the Azure Lime. It's a no brainer. Unless you're completely in love with the Azure Lime and just have to have some, get the St. Bart's. It smells just as good if not slightly better and it would be a shame to spend that kind of money on the Azure Lime unless you truly love it...just one man's opinion though. Based on my preferences and the poor longevity, I've got to give this one a thumbs down.

I really like the scent of lime, but unfortunately it just doesn't seem to work all that well in perfumery. I keep trying Azure Lime every time I pass the Private Line counter at Saks. The opening is a beautiful lime and woods fragrance that unfortunately fades to a skin scent within an hour. Perhaps others get better performance. Neutral.

A pleasant combination of lime and woods, Tom Ford Azure Lime is one of the better warm weather-leaning Private Blend fragrances, and seems to be generally well-liked while not a fan favorite. Some get limes (and only limes) out of it, and for a lime-intensive fragrance, one can certainly do better by price via Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts. I get more, though---Azure Lime is relatively subdued and sophisticated, but an agreeable blend of limes with mainly woody notes, as well as some musk. Beyond that, there's not much complexity to describe, which is perhaps a detraction though in this case I do not intend it to bed. Sometimes a simple summer fragrance is ideal when the weather forces it to project, unlike a winter fragrance that gains an advantage by having many layers to be peeled when it's so cold out (i.e. Tom Ford London).

Neither a projection nor longevity monster, but on par with the other warm weather Tom Ford Private Blend fragrances that I've tried (Costa Azzurra, Mandarino di Amalfi, Neroli Portofino, Rive D'Ambre). Understandably, some might feel robbed, relative to the strength of Tobacco Vanille or Tuscan Leather, but I always find the cold/warm weather differential to be relevant in composing a fragrance.

Certainly one of the more pleasant entries that needs to be nabbed soon since I've been told repeatedly by reps that it is being discontinued (as is Italian Cypress).
