    I'm not sure I could recognize it, but I'm intrigued. Acaciosa parfum, per name, should contain it, and indeed, the top has a nicely dirty floral, almost oily feel, which, I am assuming, is partly due to this tree (I'm somewhat less interested in the soapy note-perhaps orange flower-that peeks through on skin).

    Just adding some further info.

    Caron's Farnesiana is the yellow mimosa one.
    Referring to Acacia farnesiana.

    Robina pseudoacia is the white flowered 'black locust'.

    The confusion may arise from the Robinia being referred to as 'acacia' in some countries.
