Why Do I Like Old Spice Fresh Limes Better Than Trumpers?

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?

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 :D 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.
