History: Mace, the outer shell of the nutmeg, actually has a longer history of use than nutmeg. Portugal controlled the spice until 1605 when the Dutch took over the spice route for the Molucca Islands, and it wasn't until 1768 that Nutmeg became available to others.

Characteristics: A middle note of medium aroma, Nutmeg's scent is soft, spicy, and woody with a slightly musky note.
