Strongest points
Seriously a sensational fragrance for men, long lasting and fresh. Very elite
Weakest points
None
Summary
Omg I was really impressed with this fragrance when I received the Crabtree and Evelyn men's West Indian lime travel set for men. My husband really appreciated the opportunity and loved the collection. We are very picky about fragrances and scents. We are known to go for the elite range of fragrances, with powerful, provocative, sexy. Bold and confident signature scents. Surprisingly gorgeous smell. This fragrance is definitely worth buying. We highly recommend it for everyday use and for a night out. It's got a big personality and businessman feel to the affects of the scent. It gets stronger as the day goes on. If I see this fragrance I would definitely buy it. We have already decided to buy it. Wowed by the unique combination of ingredients especially when you think of West Indian lime. You will love it, in for a treat, addictive, attractive, attitude and attention beyond your imagination. I was truly impressed and surprised with this, must have, highly recommendable fragrance for men.

Summary
This product comes in a snall, vintage style, glass, cologne bottle with a screw cap. The product I tried was a travel size and may differ from the full sized version. The bottle had an open top which meant that care was needed not to over dispense the cologne when using it. The fragrance has a zesty and slightly woody fragrance in the bottle, which is uplifting to inhale. Upon application there is a powerful top note which dies away quickly to reveal the more subtle mid and base notes of the cologne. The fragrance is light and easy to wear by both sexes and has a summery feel. Care needs to be taken over application for users who may have sensitive skin as I found the product caused some stinging sensation when applied to particular areas of skin near the ears and behind the knees. Subsequently I have only applied the fragrance to my hair, clothing and wrists which seems to work well. I found that the fragrance became very subtle quite quickly following the initial burst and would need to reapply fairly frequently to maintain the level of fragrance that I normally enjoy. However, this is a personal preference, others may prefer the very subtle result produced over time.

I think I would like to use this in the warmer weather as it is very fresh and summery without being at all sweet . I find it a happy scent that makes me feel positive when I wear it and when my son came over from Canada he was also happy to wear it and his girlfriend liked it on him too.

You don't need to splash it too generously as a little does carry well. It stays on my skin well and three hours later I can still detect it on me. It lasts even longer on my sleeves as I can sell them a day later if I leave it on a chair to wear again another day before washing it.

I think this is a scent that would appeal to bot sexes unless you like very sweet scents. It would also appeal to wide age range too.

I think it would be fine to wear day and night for males but for me I think it is more of a day scent and for days when it is hot and summery.

This is cologne has no parabens, colours, phthalates, mineral oil, or propylene glycol so that is all positive too.

Sadly this is one of many companies who claim to be against animal testing but then add the extra little bit “ Except where necessary by a country's laws!!!”

Strongest points
Fresh unisex scent
Light and summery
Although this is called West Indian Lime there are a few other scents in this besides the lime which include vetivert, ginger, coriander and juniper so it is a deeper and more complex aroma than just lime although that does come through strongly as fresh and uplifting.
Weakest points
Fairly boring bottle - a fairly standard looking clear glass bottle with the name of the product in a central circle in black embossed text.
Summary
This is a unisex fragrance so fresh rather than sweet and heavy. I find it light and very uplifting and am happy to wear this myself.

The notes in this are :
Top notes are all citrus and are lime, lemon and mandarin
Middle notes are nutmeg, coriander and rosemary
Base notes are patchouli, sandalwood and orris
