Ok Nook! This is a pretty simple idea, and I'm afraid I've never seen one or heard of one.

A Lime Aftershave Splash with Menthol.

Now I don't mean something like Old Spice Lime, which has very little Lime about it, or similar to that concept. I mean a real lime AS that has a bit of menthol chill to it.

I was inspired to this thought by two products. The QCS Key Lime Ice cream, which is... wow! The second is Razorock King Louis/888 AS Lotions which are IMO the best all round AS I've ever used.

So does one exsist? If fate deems I am out of luck on this, then does anyone have a "recipe" or idea to create one?

I'd take a bit of Lime aftershave and drop a couple of menthol crystals into it. I'm sure someone far more knowledgeable than me knows of one, but I've never seen one.

I figured this would be a popular idea!

Well, does anyone have a recommendation for a pretty straight up lime aftershave splash to drop some crystals in? Thanks for the suggestion Dave Smile

Pinaud Lime Sec is good. That's the only one I've tried.

Or just mix in some 444. I've done this with TOBS Victorian Lime and Pinaud Citrus Musk, and it works well.

Forgot about the 444, yes excellent idea and probably as cheap as Menthol Crystals

Yea the 444 is a good idea, and um going to get some next time I order at IB. I've never used it before though. What's it like and how much to use?

Also, anyone have experience with Royall Lyme?

It's very soothing, not really a face freezing sensation but a good shot of cold, use just a pea size.

I add 10 drops of Lime Essential Oil to 1 bottle Osage Rub and it works very nice for me.

I bought some Stephan Island Lime AS a few years ago and just added menthol crystals.

BTW, the Stephans is great to mix with Old Spice, or your favorite Bay Rum.
