Ditto on Captain's Choice. I'm not really that keen on lime scents myself, but of all the ones I've sniffed, it seemed the nicest. Samples can be had.

I've enjoyed lime in my shave most using Truefitt & Hill Trafalgar shaving cream - smells like a gin & tonic with the lime twist to finish.
I see that it is offered as an aftershave as well, but I've never smelled it - expensive stuff.

Captain's Choice has several others too, all very good -- better than good; Cat-O-Nine-Tails is truly great. North is another winner from them.

Pinuad Citrus musk. Got a hint of lime in it. Nice as is but add some menthol and its awesome!

Pinaud Lime Sec.  Hands down the best (IMHO)  Inexpensive too

Evil Eye Lime (in both wax and lotion) is my favorite - pure scent with a great, healing post-shave feel.

I've heard great things about Saint Charles Shave's lime offerings but haven't had a chance to try them yet.

+1 for Pinaud Lime Sec. Good fresh lime bight, lasts a while, and is inexpensive. Perfect warm weather splash! (Or any time!)

Royall Lymes - it has a great fresh lime scent and once that recedes into the background a warm spice scent emerges.  

8 oz bottle is $36 at Overstock

That sounds good pretty good!

I just bought turkish Kolonya Limon in a few variants. However, the one I am looking for is Evin Limon.  This is supposed to be good

I have Myrsol and Pinaud citrus musk, these are not bad. But I have still business to do as far as a Lime (or Limon= Lemon?) scent goes, really

St. Johns West Indian Lime   (offered as a splash or a balm, also as a cologne). 

St. Johns is the original (if you discount the 16th and 17th century English sailors whose toilet habits inspired the sobriquet "limey" to apply to all Englishmen). 

It is a "dark" lime scent, at the opposite end of the spectrum from the lime splashes that try to smell like the puny slice of fruit that decorates the rim of an ice cold gin and tonic in a shi-shi cocktail lounge; the St. Johns lime has an undercurrent of vetiver and a soupçon of bay leaf to give it heft and structure.   The recipe is unchanged for going on seven decades.
