    Default What is the best, powdery mimosa fragrance??

    I have recently discovered that this gorgeous, floral, powdery note that drives me crazy so much is actually called mimosa.

    Two wonderful mimosas I've tried so far:

    - Bond no. Fashion Avenue
    - L'Artisan Mimosa Pour Moi

    Both share this mysterious, sweet, very unique floral note - that of mimosa. The only difference: Fashion Avenue is a floral POWDER, Mimosa Pour Moi is a powdery FLORAL. I've known Fashion Avenue for a while now, and it's been an all time favorite of mine and always will be. Just recently I tried Mimosa Pour Moi and I am liking very much every, single drop of it.

    Knowing that MY kind of a flower is mimosa, and loving all the powdery notes of the world, please suggest any other fragrances with that note that come to your mind. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!

    I heard about a Patricia de Nicolai perfume called Mimosaique, but I've never tried it.

    Also, heliotrope can appear similar to mimosa, so you may want to check perfumes with this note as well. Examples would be Guerlain Apres l'ondee and Patricia de Nicolai Kiss me tender.

    Perhaps you could try Farnesiana by Caron.

    I used to have a bottle of it! A gorgeous perfume, and gave it away to my mom. I remember, it was very rich, floral and classic. My mom if anything, is more into perfumes that have a "class", and I focus more on the single, favorite notes. Anyways Champs Elusees was a beautiful perfume, just not me. However, I'm very happy my mom is enjoying it so muchon special occasions!

    Oh, I adore heliotrope! I adore almondy, and powdery. You're absolutely right about that! I am trying to search for all kinds of powdery perfumes actually.

    My Top 10*:
    1. Bois des Iles (Chanel)
    2. Ubar (Amouage)
    3. Pandora (DSH)
    4. Miss Dior - vintage (Dior)
    5. Jolie Madame (Balmain)
    6. Jicky (Guerlain)
    7. Gold Woman (Amouage)
    8. Mata Hari (DSH)
    9. L'Air du Desert Moracain (Tauer)
    10. Medici - Italian Splendor: Florence (DSH)
    *in no particular order because it's too hard!

    That's a beautiful review, Dmitri - describes it so well.

    Highline, if you can access a Guerlain counter carrying the full line (Les Parisiennes etc.) it wouldn't hurt to ask if they have a tester of L'Abeille tucked away somewhere - you might get lucky.

    Oh, Mimi Gardenia surely wins here by miles - dark red hued Caron Farnesiana extrait is an amazing find and totally wearable by Gents. Top shelf stuff.

    Can't top Mimosa Pour Moi by L'Artisan IMO for that accord.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
