The usual yellow mimosa with shaggy yellow flowers and a powdery, honey-tart, unmistakable aroma is actually a silver acacia, but real mimosa has pink and larger flowers and is touchingly called bashful Mimosa. So, it would seem, the uncomplicated and cute mimosa, familiar to almost everyone from childhood ("Today is mother's holiday, today is women's day!"), Was not immediately given to perfumers - they had to work a little to recreate its aroma and put it in a bottle … Essential oil of cassia - the very shaggy mimosa from childhood - has a much richer, balsamic and sweet aroma, slightly reminiscent of sweet almonds. Without it, as a rule, not a single mimosa composition can do, just as if not the first one,it is surely one of the first mimosa fragrances - the legendary Guerlain's Champs-Élysées, released in 1904 and triumphantly returned after a long oblivion in 1996. In addition to cassia and almonds proper, the main building blocks of his pyramid were notes of violet, lilac, peach, rose and anise. And even if more than a hundred years have passed, in the fragrances that most closely managed to sneak up on those childhood memories of mimosa for mom, as a rule, we will find violet powder, light astringency of anise and peach-pink sweetness.who are closest to sneaking up on those childhood memories of mimosa for mom, as a rule, we will find violet powder, light astringency of anise and peach-pink sweetness.who are closest to sneaking up on those childhood memories of mimosa for mom, as a rule, we will find violet powder, light astringency of anise and peach-pink sweetness.

Mimosa & Cardamom
Despite the equality in the name, this fragrance left almost no chance for cardamom, so spice hunters in the pyramid are not at all here. But here are armfuls of mimosa - real, warm and soft, like a terry towel, and almost painfully familiar. An effective trigger of dreamy nostalgia, Mimosa & Cardamom is almost the closest to the same bouquet that was once secretly delivered home under a coat, but left a treacherous trail in a scattering of fragrant pollen on a sweater.

Mimosa pour Moi
Anna Flipo, who created this fragrance for the L'Artisan Parfumeur collection a quarter of a century ago, turned out to be a little sweeter, but no less dear and a little more sunny. Someone in it hears the sweetness of anise, someone the tart greens of freshly cut branches, but one way or another, everyone who was lucky enough to get a bottle of this fragrance sooner or later echoes its name: “This is mimosa for me”.

Dolce & Gabbana
In this composition, slightly more citrusy at the beginning and a little sweeter in the heart than live mimosa, a narcissus settled - not the one that flaunts itself until unconscious, but bittersweet, with a core similar to a bright egg yolk, snow-white petals, each of which a skilled hand will draw with one stroke of the brush, and with a long thin stem, leaving on the hand that very tart scent of spring greenery, behind which summer is about to begin.

Like all the stories that the creators of the Atelier Cologne brand tell in their fragrances, Mimosa Indigo does not stop at what the name says, but becomes overgrown with numerous details as the plot develops (read, pyramids). Here mimosa turned into not so much indigo as mixed with memories of a trip to India - Mysore sandal - the driest, sweetest and most delicate - powdery vanilla, a pinch of precious saffron and tart rough skin. This mimosa could well have been covered with a bookmark in a notebook, which was given as a gift as a child and, having become a faithful friend to its owner for many years, traveled half the world with him.>
