4711 Acqua Colonia‘s newest Cologne is Lime & Nutmeg. The whole line often combines fruit with spice. Lime and nutmeg are also the only notes listed. There’s literally nothing else but lime (yummy, yummy refreshing lime) and afterwards a drydown of nutmeg. That part smells a lot like you had an accident in the pantry. It is not similar to nutmeg, it really is straight up nutmeg.

To be honest I’m not sure if I want to smell like the drydown. The lime is so great, though.

Lime & Nutmeg is, like the whole line, an EdC, the lowest perfume concentration. The smell also doesn’t last all that long, an hour, maybe two. I think these aren’t meant to be super long lasting perfumes, they’re more meant to be a quick refreshment during the day, to be reapplied several times.

To be honest, I’m somewhat tempted to use this to clean door handles, light switches and such… 😄 High concentration of alcohol (85 %) and a fresh lime scent, you know. Also I’d rather the kitchen smell of nutmeg instead of me.
