Too much seems to turn women off - like a cleaning agent smell. But I can never have too much. I didn't know it could turn. I've been considering a briny blend with lime... calone, salt, liminol/lime, vetiver, titch of musk and cocounut. Here's to the limey bastards!

I've been talking to some people and apparently limonene has a really unstable double bond that degrades. Citrus oils seem to break down within two years, and are pretty unstable. It's worth the effort. I just need to be more careful, apparently.

@Dr Chocolate If you're going to use alcohol base you need to include some sorts of fixative. Monolaurin. DPG. Otherwise, it's going to evaporate in a flash. One nice thing about using a fresh lime peel is that the material of the peel will naturally slow diffusion.
