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.

A good marriage with a fresh-spicy pleasant result. Unfortunately not longlasting. Anyway the bottle is very elegant
