Lime is an underrated top note in perfumery. The scent is a typical citrus scent that is between lemon and mandarin. The scent starts out fresh and sharp, but changes in the heart to a more fruity, sweet scent. In the base it still has a bit of this sweet fruity taste. Lime combines as a real citrus scent with almost all other scents, ideal for that different citrus top or for a surprising eau de cologne. In soap it is almost worthless, there is almost nothing left of the smell.

This product is very sensitive to oxidation, which is why 0.1% antioxidant has been added. In older batches this is BHT, in newer batches it is tocopherol (Vitamin E). Apart from the antioxidant, it is a pure essential oil.

Lime oil can cause lung damage if swallowed and is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. The oil is flammable, so be careful with aroma lamps. Lime oil contains citral, geraniol, limonene and linalool, substances that some people have an allergic reaction to.
