What it says!
Anglia, the second!

As already in my discussion of "Imperial Lime" I don't tell a story here, but let - quite British-sober - the fragrance speak for itself.

Opening: less tangy than Imperial Lime, but just as lemony. Already here it can be guessed that the fragrance was not designed as a more volatile one, like still the imperial lime sister, since heart (basil and carnation) and base (moss) are to be smelled out already after less than one minute clearly as companions, which primes the citric freshness immediately and very nobly
History: After one hour the Vetiver stretches his shy head. The Hesperides retreat a bit and leave well-balanced, only discreetly soapy spiciness behind. Like in good food, everything here seems to be "as if by chance" perfectly balanced, as if it couldn't be otherwise. Here, nothing points to chance, but rather to outstanding perfumery craftsmanship. Mr. Thomson is hereby called to praise the hereafter (if the Anglia recipe really corresponds to the original composition)!

Finish: Comfortable linearity. A little fire slowly glowing in the fireplace. Wonderful.

Here we are indeed dealing with a (in the best sense of the word) classic functional fragrance from England, which offers exactly what the name promises - even if only with durability for the morning. So the seeking gentleman doesn't have to brood long over confusingly multifaceted perfume names:
"I am in search of a refreshing cologne with a... a little extra." - "Beg your pardon, sir?" - "Oh, you know... With some sort of 'twist', maybe?" - "A spicy twist, sir?" - "Indeed!" - "There you go, sir."

There you go. "Thankyouandgoodbye!" You have to like it.

The Longest Lasting Lime Scent I have Sniffed To Date...
This is a review of the vintage juice from Crown Perfumery, not the Anglia reissue...

I get a primary mixture of lime, basil and clove, with nutmeg and cinnamon playing a strong supporting role as well. I really do not get any lemon, as is suggested from the pyramid above, nor vetiver in the base. That said, oakmoss is definitely there to wind things down, coupling with the lime and spice mixture late in the scent's development until the very end.

Spiced Limes is a relatively linear scent that has tremendous staying power, strength and projection. This stuff is so potent that I wouldn't dare wearing more than one spray to the office for fear of being sent home. That said, it is great smelling and highly recommended. One of the best from the now defunct Crown Perfumery. If the Anglia re-issue is true to the Crown release, folks are in for an inexpensive treat. If not, vintage Crown juice is still available on eBay for silly money the last time I checked. One of the best values around, and the longest lasting lime scent I have tried to date by far. 4 out of 5 stars.
