I just picked up Soap Commander Respect and it's very limey though it is blended with patchouli. I'm not sure if it's lime, but Capone di Paolo Agrume is an awesome citrus that I would call close to lime.

My favorite is Mystic Water. The closest scent to a real lime, IMO. I have a half dozen lime soaps that I enjoy, but Mystic Water is the real deal.

If you can use a GREAT croap like cream, and like a very fresh quite strong take on lime, get Castle Forbes Lime.

TOP of the TOP performance.

The only problem I had with the C&E was that the scent was very mild. Probably the mildest lime/ bamboo scent I've ever smelled in a soap. So, I had to sell it. I didn't even try it.

This.  Lime without any overtones/undertones.  Perfect scent strength.  Scent stays the same all the way to the last shave of the puck.  

If you like lime, this is the soap for you.

Last I checked, Reef Point was no longer making Sublime.  Maybe they are again, now, for all I know.  But to my nose, it's not limey at all.  Citrusy, yes, but not limey.  Has an undertone that is reminiscent of something that I can't quite place, but it reminds me of cooking on a grill for some reason.  

I like the scent, but it's not really a lime scent.  I also love that it has just a bare hint of menthol in it.

CRSW Limenthol, perfect amount of menthol and a natural lime scent.

Mikes Lime, another great natural lime scent.
