Summer refreshment
According to Floris homepage, the fragrance was created in the late 18th century to make the heat of the city more bearable. Juan Floris, the perfumer has mastered this task excellently, because the fragrance is above all one thing: refreshing!!
Especially the prelude is a true freshness kick: so lemon-sour that you almost can't control your facial muscles anymore (this involuntary reaction, where it "pulls everything together"). This fresh boost does not take long, only a few minutes.
What follows is very gentle, already refreshingly lemony, also slightly flowery-green (delicate lime blossom), ... but very discreet!
On myself I have the feeling that I can no longer perceive the scent after just one hour, but on my clothes I could still easily hear this discreet freshness the next day My conclusion: a great summer fragrance that really refreshes and certainly doesn't bother anybody due to the barely existing Sillage (from the heart note).

Gentle Summer Lindenblossom
In case of "Limes" the lime blossom, which is mentioned with the ingredients, linden blossem is ment. That's what I had to realize first. Because after "Limes" started with a fresh lightgreen citrous scent followed by some wonderful flowers which I could not identify first.
But when I used a dictionary I understood: Lime is not only what we call in German "Limette", lime means linden blossoms as well. And now it fittet with my perception of the scent. The lily of the valley is going into a symbiosis with the linden blossom. Together with the lightgreen lemon scent I felt in this frosty winter morning like in an early summerday at the beginning of June, when the greens are still light and the linden trees are beginning to flourish. This suble fragance and fresh blend is lasting for hours. But on my skin it is vanishing after a short time. Amazingly after about one or two hours it is appearing again and it is delighting me for at least 6 hours with constant but soft intensity. "Limes" ist a more cologne-fragance, suitable for women and men. And it is an example of historical perfume art and -experience.

Mint Toothpaste
I just love the Lemon Lime opening an zesty beginning dries lovely to an delicate watery scent of Lily of the Vally
hidden among the rocks with it's gentile
scent and the subtle musk dry down.

it's more of a pleasant and Diluted Version of Eau de Guerlian which it's a very power citrus aromatic fragrance
that uses to much on mint and smelled like Mint Tooth Paste

An effervescent citrus that wakes you up with a bright green tartness ... albeit briefly.

Beautiful fresh citrus scent, smells really natural unlike other scents which border on metallic tones. Completely Unisex but doesn't last.

Very fresh and pleasant. I can highly recommend Limes as Shower Gel. A real pick-me-up!
