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… XD High concentration of alcohol (85 %) and a fresh lime scent, you know. Also I’d rather the kitchen smell of nutmeg instead of me.
