A Bright And Green Olfactory Adventure
Lime has a fresh, juicy, green, and tart aroma. It smells like sour candy and soda at the same time, and is a very distinctive scent on its own, even more so than lemon. The scent also tends to be a little dryer and sweeter when compared with other citrus scents.
Lime perfume oil is traditionally associated with perfumes containing fresher notes, but it blends well with nearly all olfactory groups in general. Like many of its citrusy cousins, lime produces a rounded freshness and fullness of the top notes, enhancing a fragrance’s body and depth. We find that it pairs particularly well with other citrusy notes such as bergamot and mandarin, as well as white florals like ylang-ylang and rose. Lime is also a prominent note in more mojito-based accords (think mint & rum).
Lime Perfumes As Refreshing As A Summer’s Breeze
Citrus scents like lime bring zest and sparkle to a fragrance, and are known for their energetic properties that can elevate the spirit. In the hot, muggy summer months, a lime-scented perfume like Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue provides welcome respite, bringing joy through its opening notes of apple, bluebell, and lime. White florals and a musky woody base soon follow, transporting the wearer to a beautiful island getaway in the Mediterranean. A generous helping of citrusy lime is also present in Jo Malone London’s Lime, Basil & Mandarin. Filled with a citrus-green accord, the perfume’s main notes are lime, basil, and mandarin, which then work their way to thyme, musk, and amber. This is an uplifting scent suitable for both day and night wear. It is also great for all seasons. Also, lime can be a great addition to greener aquatics, such as in Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gioia. Armani’s signature scent opens with a soft citrus note (lemony thanks to both lemon and lime), followed by sweet jasmine sambac and aquatic undertones. Overall, it’s a simple, sweet, and delightful scent. Perfect for weekends or simply to wear at home on a dreary, rainy day.
