This had a nice, although very mild, citrusy/fruity smell in the tin, but once I put it on it turned into a very sharp (almost bitter) kaffir lime scent which eventually settled into a really faint sweet papaya smell. And then five minutes later I couldn't smell anything at all. It could just be that my skin chemistry doesn't suit this particular fragrance because their "Tibetan Mountain Temple" solid lasts for hours on me. I really love the packaging on all of their solid perfumes--really travel friendly (and cute).
$9 isn't a lot to spend on a perfume, but I would definitely suggest getting their $2 samples first to see if you like the scent or not. Their samples are a regular size tin filled about 1/6th of the way, so if you end up hating the smell, you can always re-use the cute tin for something else.

The scent is absolutely heavenly! Sweet, juicy, slightly florally, and still sexy. The staying power is not so heavenly. As with the other reviewers, I had issues with this staying on. Even with my layering (conditioner, soap, and body lotion) it still fades pretty fast. Although that is slightly annoying if I'm inside, when I'm out in the hot summer I don't mind a lighter, softer scent. Therefore this is my July scent. It's perfect for a day at the beach or a night out at the bar. As I said before, the layering does help, so I just keep the solid in my purse to reapply. The solid is extremely convenient and versatile, so I always go for this form of fragrance. Even with the problems with the staying power, it still stays on well enough and definitely smells good enough for me to buy again. Yum!

I LOVE anything lime and so when I was waiting in line @ Sephora, I spotted this at the "devil's bins." Sephora has a great marketing concept by putting these bins by the registers to coy buyers in buying these cutesy tiny packages of goodies. I love the outside packaging of this perfume. The bright green and pink box makes me happy. However, like a previous reviewer, the darn tin does take some patience to open! The scent is very invigorating and fresh. I have a wide variety of scents in my fragrance collection and I use this one for when I need energy or to boost my mood. The price was affordable considering other perfumes in the market. However, the scent doesn't last as long as other. But, I do enjoy this.

This a prefect beachy summer scent but tooo bad it last only 1hr at best on me. So the staying power is not that great. Another thing is that the tin can is sometimes hard to open. These are great to carry in your purse as they do not take up alot of space there about 10grams/.33 ounces. I just wish they would reformulate it to make the scent last longer.

This smells great! A very bold lime papaya mixture, the lime may seem overpowering but it settles instantly and you smell the papaya infusion, and you're left with a fresh, citrus, slightly sweet spring scent.
I paid $9 at sephora for 10g/.33oz which I didnn't mind because I love citrus scents, organic blends and dislike inhaling sprays and the alcohols they contain. Plus the non-hygienic container is an adorable cylinder, not hard to open/close, and super portable, but I won't buy this again (unless they change formula) because it lasts 1.5 hours which is unforgivable.
The scent in container is bold and fun, on skin, with a generous helping, it's faint and after 3-5 hrs non-existent, even with frequent reapps. I wish this lived up to the scent in jar or else it would've been a home run.
Lippy off for price (versus quality)
2 lippies off for lack of staying power
I'd still like to try the body wash.
