    This one should smell interesting.

    Interesting indeed considering how restricted Nutmeg is.

    Yeah. Some medical research reveals that nutmeg produces some kinda physiological or neurological effects that is why in some areas in the middle east like Saudi Arabia has banned nutmeg and the products associated with it.

    If you can keep it down Nutmeg has a similar effect to cannabis. However, it has an unfortunate side effect of making you want to be sick. Taking enough to produce the former effect, may produce the latter.

    Nutmeg contains both Myristicin and Safrole, and its use in Perfumery is limited and restricted.

    I assumed that's the reason why it has got restrictions for its use. ;)

    Just for fun I've ordered a sample. I don't recall smelling nutmeg in a fragrance before but I love the scent when I use it to cook and bake. And I've heard the same thing---it's a hallucinogen in larger doses but will make you nauseated.
