Away on my hols and have taken some samples to use including the Trumpers extract of limes. It had a hint of lime but that is all. Pleasant but in no way special. Really not a patch on the Castle Forbes although I do prefer a cream to a Croap.
This is Trumpers you're talking about? I'd say the same for GFCC - just a hint of lime that goes away quickly, and really nothing special. The title of this thread is misleading - trying to big up something very average.

The title refers to the original GFCC cream, not the lime one which came out more recently. I agree that the lime scent is barely there at all (see previous comments in thread), I presume that the purpose of the OP was to highlight that it’s actually a very good cream for the price (the original, that is)

Yes - it's a shame the lime scent is so faint because it's actually quite a nice refreshing fragrance. The performance isn't the greatest - others lather better, though it's no worse than average. Post-shave feel is fine.

I have the Caribbean Lime which I like. I see now that the range is called Premium, i.e. sandalwood, and Bergamot and Neroli. Is the Bergamot exactly the same as Caribbean Lime, similar or what?

Bought the Bergamot and Neroli, which is good and my favourite. Also the Premium which is quite perfumey. Lather fine with face lathering - a bit on each cheek then brush.

Just before I press the buy button - read somewhere that the Bergamot & Neroli is the same as the Caribbean Limes - surely not?
