WTD, Episode 1.3: Le Mimosa by Annick Goutal

Le Mimosa – created in 2011, notes include mimosa absolute from Grasse, peach, anise, Florentine iris, white musk. Even though I strongly disliked this perfume during my search for a perfect mimosa scent (see links to other reviews in that post) I decided to give it the last try before getting rid of the remaining sample. I still can smell mostly a peach. And it is still nauseating. But since this time I knew what to expect I could tolerate it better. I should mention once again: I’m really sorry I do not like this perfume, I wanted to – because of the cute ribbon, because of one of my favorite flowers, because of Annick Goutal and my hope to find another scent in her line to love. Oh well…

Sillage: light (3 out of 5); tenacity: good (4 hours).

    • I haven’t tried it yet, but I was just looking at it yesterday on the site. And, actually, it was partially because of you: after reading your post on Lilacs I decided to do my own for the next “single note exploration” post and as I was gathering all the lilacs I wanted to try I came to DSH site and couldn’t help looking for mimosa as well – since I like it so much. Now I have to try it.
