What kind of fragrances do you prefer?

I have several samples of Trumper's edt's and have sampled all of them at one time or another. I never get the lime hit with them that I do with a cheap aftershave I got from India. I mean Old Spice Fresh Lime, of course. I am using my bottle up faster than any other aftershave I have (it is a small bottle). Any others here that like it or prefer it to Trumper's or vice versa?
pete, have you used the taylor 74 limes? just asking out of curioisty....I have no cologne input whatsoever
de gustibus non est disputandum
Not sure about it because I got my samples several years ago. But I recall at the time thinking: why is Trumper so prized. A great many of the samples had some form of bitter lime to them (with other stuff); just not to my taste. I can really get the fresh lime hit with a cheap aftershave and it is still present after several hours, which is more than most edts.
I love the Old Spice Fresh Lime. It's the best of the limes in my book. Just for the record, I also love Aqua Velva Frost Lime even more. I had a bottle of Taylor's 74 Lime but it was no match for OSFL or AVFL. I didn't care for it at all. Not my cup of tea to say the least.
I'm sure it is a matter of taste. A while back, a site called coffeereview.com said a recently released roasted coffee warranted their 94/100 rating even though it was from Brazil. So I bought 5 pounds at a high price. Didn't hate it, but it was nowhere as good as other roasted coffees that I buy locally at a lower price. They are sophisticated but can't predict the flavor to me.
