Surprising
I had a pleasant time in this yesterday.

My motivation in purchasing this six months ago was to serve as an aftershave, having used 4711 in the same manner.
So in referencing 4711 to this, I expected Lime and Nutmeg to act the same in hold as well citrus freshness.

And it does.

However, I have been pleasantly surprise with the stronger hold than perceived as well as a sweeter/musky depth it emits.

There's a little more than nutmeg in this! The nutmeg couldn't be the only note providing such sweet musk. ( I love nutmeg btw)
Is it Tonka perhaps? The sweetness is mild but it's there.
Yet, the sweetness never takes away from the lime, the exceptional lime, in this. It's a bitter lime, familiar, maybe it's the bitterness that is adding to the sweeter tones I'm experiencing.

Another surprise with Lime and Nutmeg ...is that it reminds me of a favorite fragrance I use to love, from Bath and Body Works called 'Coconut, Lime, Verbena'. It's the sweet musk I wasn't anticipating in Lime and Nutmeg that gives me those vibes.
(BTW: there is no coconut in Lime and Nutmeg)

Due to deeper base note, this hold more like a light-ish toilette, than a cologne. It's not a pronounce fragrance or anything, but the lime and sweet musk still exist close to the skin well after 4 hours, unlike famous colognes such as Guerlain Eau De Imperiale and Fleurs De Cedrat, ...or ..well...4711.

Lime and Nutmeg is a pleasant surprise that I can't stop sniffing and surprisingly, can't stop applying, although multiple time a day, but less than 4711

Inside what it says
Admittedly the fragrance is straightforward. You can smell nutmeg and lime, and it was. So far so unspectacular. But far from it: the fragrance combines both components very well to a harmonious unity, which is fresh and at the same time pleasant without being obtrusive.

I really like the scent in summer, because I take it when I need to smell pleasant quickly.
The disadvantage is that it has a short shelf life because it evaporates quickly - but you should know this when you buy an Eau de Cologne. All in all, I think it is one of the best fragrances of the range and helps me in summer to avoid being the victim of massive mosquitoes

Delicious, light and round: lime on nutmeg
Geza Schön has managed this very well: a simple yet profound dual sound of very fresh and authentic lime and a beautifully round nutmeg.
In my opinion, this Limette-Nutmeg Cologne is one of the best of the 4711 refreshing waters; in terms of the simple yet convincing composition, it actually reaches the Guerlain level of the Aqua Allegorias.
The shelf life of this tasty Muscat lime is also quite good for a cologne, although not quite as persistent and superficially present as the Guerlain mandarins, grapefruit and neroli twigs. Fits perfectly into spring and summer.

Lime in the limelight
Last year Guerlain used lime in their "Limon verde" AA-scent and this year the house of 4711 released a new EdC also featuring lime as a key-ingredient. I must say that I prefer the new "Acqua Colonia" to the Guerlain, because it smells much purer and there are no connotations to the famous Caipirinia (which is a lovely cocktail, but which I don't want to wear on my skin).
The initial burst of lime in the 4711-fragrance is gorgeous and very refreshing. Since "Lime and nutmeg" is a genuine Eau de Cologne, the scent seems to fade away after 10 minutes, but actually it lasts much longer, because the slightly woody-spicy basenote will accompany you for hours after application. As far as the nutmeg is concerned, I can perceive it quite clearly in the beginning, but it morphs into the woodsy-spicy base I already mentioned. All of this is a subtle development, very well done. Please note that the nutmeg in this new Cologne doesn't smell like the spice you use in your kitchen. Together with the initial lime and the woody elements this scent manages to smell extremely fresh in the beginning and woody-spicy in the end, with the sour part of the lime-scent forming a continous presence.
"Lime and Nutmeg" is a fizzy, fresh pick-me-up scent for everybody who loves lime in combination with a spicy touch and Geza Schön is a master perfumer. So what you get here is a quality product from Germany embedded in the great tradition of the house of 4711 in Cologne.

Geza and his iso-E at it again! Basically a warm-woody spicy scent with lime only at the top. Weak but well blended and leaning masculine.

A very pleasant little Cologne, this hint of nutmeg is welcome to coat this acid lime.
Simply effective.
It can be found for around 20€
