    If there's a Crabtree & Evelyn in your area, you should ask them for a sample of their West Indian Lime cream. If you like it, look for it when they're having a sale.

    'Sweeney Todd' by Route 66 has a wonderful 'blood orange' citrusy scent with a hint of woodsy-ness.
    I'm not a fruity citrus scent fan—particular the strong 'lemon-cleanser' scent found in some soaps—so for me, the Sweeney Todd hits all the right notes

    I would have to recommend RR XX. To me it has a more citrus smell than XXX.

    I have the Amici aftershave and yes, it does smell sort of spicy!

    TFS Linea Tradizionale Barba Gialla is a great, and inexpensive, Italian citrus soap. The also have several citrus soaps in their luxury lines, but it's hard to beat the basic Linea Tradizionale soaps. YMMV as always.

    I LOVE citrus soaps! Italian Barber Amici (grapefruit and orange) smells phenomenal...but more importantly, it doesn't smell synthetic. And at $3 a tub (not including shipping) it's a steal. Maggard's Limes and Bergamot, TOBS Grapefruit, Tiki Citrus Mint Blast, and SC 'Respect' (Lime and Patchouli) are also great soaps to try.

    Taylor of Old Bond Street Grapefruit - very citrusy. Great lather - very slick. Gives a wonderful shave.

    Dr. Jon's Hydra is amazing but I don't think its too cheap at $16 plus shipping. I also like Kiss My Face, Arko, route 66's sea & citrus and sweeny todd among several others that I've seen posted already. To me I think Williams has an Arko like lemon smell that I enjoy. Some people say its more urinal cake or lemon floor cleaner.
