Thread: mimosa acacia

  1. #1

    Default mimosa acacia

    I fell for this note in Mimosa pour Moi at the L'artisan boutique in Paris. JUST like the acacia trees I used to climb. Now I find there are LOTS of frags with this note in them. I just tried Mimosaique by Nicolai, which at first I loved better than my Mimosa pour Moi, but it evolved into something a little sharper. Now I want to try others. Any ideas out there?

    Maybe not as pure as Mimosa pour Moi, but I would recommend KenzoSummer with its almond-like soft mimosa notes.

    Kenzo summer is a nice one, I agree.

    Fleur de Cassie by Malle (nose D.Ropion) is coaxing acacia/mimosa into a very unique fragrance. A love or hate it thing, so try.

    Farnesiana by Caron is another classic take on mimosa.

    I also suggest you try the new harvest of Amarige Mimosa; it's supposedly a special harvest of mimosas that goes into the original fragrance and (hopefully, cuz I hate the original) softens it. It's a LE though, so I suggest you hurry.

    I absolutley fell in love with Farnesiana. It's a surprising scent - it smells like cassie (a type of mimosa) but in a most gourmand interpretation, with sweet vanillic-almondy notes.

    Un Fleur de Cassie from Frederic Malle is another cassie scent (cassie is a deeper type of mimosa, it's a base note as opposed to mimosa being a top note) and is a richly green and woody floral note.

    You can also try Les Nuages de Joie Jaune - my new mimosa soliflore. It means "couds of yellow happiness" and is a light, cheerful and sweet mimosa scent. Here is a link to the description and notes:
    And my blog entry about the development of the mimosa scent:

    Un Fleur de Cassie is wonderful, but not for beginners. Farnesiana is a safer take on that note. I find Farnesiana somewhat in line with Datura Noir as far as gourmand-ish florals go.

    Why, why, WHY must one spend $200.00 to obtain the Fleur de Cassie? It might just be worth it.

    I hope the ones you climbed were not as thorny as Acacia farnesiana!

    Santa Maria Novella Gaggia is another nice take on that sweet acacia scent.
