Guys,

The time is here, please read the following carefully.

The free lime aftershave samples will be ready to go in a few days. I wanted to start this on a Sunday to give everyone a shot at getting a free sample rather than during the week when many are at work. Frankly, the interest in samples is more than the number of free samples I can give away. Already one (very considerate) member has paid in advance in order that someone else would get a free sample. Here is how it will work.

Free samples go to the first ten to send me their address - not the first to PM me that they want one or respond in this thread that they want one. The first ten addresses PM'd to me get the free samples. I will acknowledge they are one of the first ten. After you send me your address please note in the thread that you did so - this will help others to know if they are in the first ten or not.  

The best part is that samples will be available to anyone else following the first ten for $4.00 each, paypal only. This is CONUS only please (sorry my Canadian friends) due to alcohol content. Samples will not be shipped for perhaps a week. I will PM my paypal address to each of you who would like to pay for a sample but did not make the first ten responses.

This is a formulation we have spent a good deal of time and money on. It is now at the point that we need your opinion. Please feel at liberty to share right here in the thread once you get your sample (I can take it!) If you prefer you are certainly welcome to PM your feedback to me. The scent of lime is an extremely difficult one. Its very nature is that it is fleeting, it is there for a moment and gone in an instant. It is this aspect of its nature that has been so challenging.

We have purchased a number of lime scented aftershaves and tested them. They are global brands that everyone here has heard of and chemical based. Because of this they are able to ramp up the fragrances and chemicals to deliver a prominent lime note. We have no interest in a chemical based aftershave. Our formulation is much like our other two, based upon natural extracts and essential oils with grain alcohol and witch hazel as a foundation. Because of this and because of the very nature of lime, it has a more subtle scent rather than prominent. Going the natural ingredient route has taken longer but delivers a healthier offering.

Here are some questions to start you off as you review it. Please do not limit yourself to these nor should you feel like you need to answer all of them. These are just to give you some direction if you like. Please be straight forward and don't worry about any hurt feelings on my part. I am looking for candor, that is the only way we can know what the wet shaving community thinks.

1. The scent - too strong, just right, too weak?

2. The application - does it feel good, how is the sting?

3. The finish - how does your face feel after it dries down?

4. How long did the scent last for you?

5. Would you buy this product? Preliminary price would be $18.00 for the four ounce bottle, just like our other two aftershaves.

6. How can it be better?


Thank you for your willingness, we look forward to hearing what everyone thinks!

PM sent. I can't remember ever trying a lime scented AS. Hopefully it will bring some sun and warmer weather along with it.

My sentiments exactly! Though I am in Canada. I look forward to the testing to come though, by the folks that are able to try it.

A happy update here. All has come together and it looks like the samples will ship out tomorrow morning. Most of you should have our brand new Lime scented aftershave in hand for the weekend! Thumbup

These sample vials are a nice size, large enough for several uses. Once you have had time to evaluate, do share your thoughts in the thread.

Thank you.

Upon application I felt no sting at all, which was somewhat disappointing. I rather like a bit of a bracing 'pop' from my aftershave to wake up my skin following my shave. The fragrance was quite strong initially to both myself and the wife, but did not linger long. We went to the theater, and by the conclusion of the show she, sitting quite close to me could no longer detect the scent w/o tucking her nose into my ear...not a bad thing, I might add. She did remark that the initial fragrance was most enjoyable and she would like to have me wear it more often...I am considering bathing in it.
Respectfully submitted.

The Lime sample arrived late afternoon. I had already shaved earlier this morning, but I splashed a little Lime on anyway. I didn't get much of a Lime scent which for me may be a good thing as I haven't found many lime products I like. I'm looking forward to using it after a shave in a day or two when the sample gets to room temp and I apply a little more to give it a good test. I can say that it seems to have great healing properties. I had a rough shave with some old cream this morning and the Lime AS took care of some lingering irritation. More comments in a day or two.
