It has a pungent solvent odor which resembles gasoline - that makes it really hard to detect any lime underneath. I can't argue with Now Foods telling us that the oil was "cold expeller-pressed", but that doesn't exclude them diluting it afterwards...
Terrible artificial scent

This oil is nothing like the better quality small lime oils from Aura Cacia or Natures Alchemy. It smells like a candy shop or like a cleaning product. I bought it because of the price and size of the bottle and will not do so again.
stinky bottle smell ruined the food in my order

The outside of the bottle just reeked of lime scent. The bottle wasn't broken but the outside just stunk and the smell permeated a bag of chocolate chips in the same box and did they ever taste horrible. Took some time to figure out what in the heck had given my chocolate chip cookies that awful taste...

I expect nice citrus scent but on opening the bottle it smells strongly of kerosene nothing resembling lime. After a 2nd sniff sometime later there's a very feint hint of lime but not strong enough for me.

For me it does not have any smell. I was expecting something fresh.
