Best Mimosa Perfumes

ˮMimosa is a miracle of nature, a tree with a unique appearance and a scent like no other. Although you may have frequently seen the yellow little balls sprouting from a leafy green branch in many a florist shop, these “mimosa” posies are not true mimosa, they’re acacias, the plant from which the essence of cassie is rendered. True mimosas do not have yellow blossoms, though the two are relatives in a common clan…Cassie flower absolute is extracted from the flora of the Acacia Farnesiana shrub.ˮ from Fragrantica

Mimosa is used in perfumery for its sweet, warm, powdery smell with hints of almond, honey and violet. I love mimosa smell because it gives you such a warm and comfortable sensation- like home. It is familiar and wonderful.
