This Mimosa Absolute from fresh flowers is artisan extracted in France.  It is a thick but POURABLE liquid.  The aroma is soft, powdery, floral, and sweet with a honeyed fresh cut grass undertone that later reveals a beautiful violet-like heart note. Unlike gooey specimens this artisan extracted Mimosa is rare and a sheer delight to work with in perfumery.

There are several species in the botanical family Acacia that produce fragrant flowers. Just two species, Acacia decurrens and A. farnesiana, have uses in perfumery.   A. decurrens is appropriately referred to as Mimosa and A. farnesiana as Cassie syn. Sweet Cassie, and not to be confused with Cassia

Acclaimed perfume expert Elena Vosnaki describes Mimosa as "a cloud of sugar-spun innocence...that figures highly in recreations of the elusive note of lilac in perfumery and of lily of the valley fragrances". 

Top perfume houses and their perfumers have used Mimosa with its resemblance to heliotrope in noteworthy examples of: Chanel (Chanel No.5), Creed (Aubepine), Givenchy (Amarige), Hermes (Caleche Fleurs de Mediterranee), Molinard (Les Fleurs), Shiseido (Zen), and Fragonard (Fragonard).

Mimosa excels in perfumery as a fixative to bring harmony among other blended aromas.  Jeanne Rose indicates the aromatherapy benefits of Mimosa absolute are of a relaxing nature for nervous tension and anxiety.  She also mentions use for sensitive or oily skin and skin problems caused by stress.

Aromatherapy use:  anxiety, nervous tension, stress 

General use: Natural and fine perfume, base note fixative, fragrance ingredient: soap, lotions, potpourri, air fresheners, bath and body products

Contraindications:  None.

Very convenient!
I love this Mimosa Absolute compared to others I've used, which have been solid and extremely hard to melt down. This Absolute is a thick but pourable liquid and is so much easier to work with. It also smells divine!

This Mimosa was so hard to find - but Lotus Garden Botanicals had it! And it was wonderfully packaged and shipped quickly. The scent is lovely. I'll definitely be a repeat buyer!
