Saturday Question: What Are Your Top 5 Mimosa Perfumes?

Spring is officially here, and, as I told many years ago in the Dial M for… Spring or A Perfect Mimosa post, I strongly associate mimosa and mimosa perfumes with Spring.

Saturday Question on Undina's Looking Glass

Saturday Question #107:

What Are Your Top 5 Mimosa Perfumes?

Do you like/wear mimosa perfumes? Do you know this tree blossom smell, or is it just a note for you?

My Answer

I love-love-love mimosa as a plant, and I own and wear many mimosa perfumes. Every year I try to drive to see the mimosa tree that grows not too far from where I live around the time it blossoms. This year, when I went there, I discovered that it was heavily pruned, and the flowers below were the only ones I could get close to.

As to perfumes, these are my favorite mimosa perfumes, not in any particular order (Just in case anyone is interested in my mini-impressions for the perfumes listed below, just run a search for “mimosa” in the Past Reflections to see my 6 posts on the topic.):

Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom
Prada Infusion de Mimosa
Sonoma Scent Studio Bee’s Bliss
Amouage Love Mimosa
Givenchy Amarige Harvest Mimosa

  1. I can think of only one, and it’s Masque Milano Ray-Flection, to which I’ve given a lot of attention recently. I also have a tiny tin of amorphous mimosa absolute that I like to sniff once in a while. Don’t think I’ve had the chance to smell the actual flower.

  2. I’ve never smelled the flower! All I can contribute is Fleur de Caissie, which I love. Caron’s Farnesiana, which I love. And i have the now discontinued Mimosa room spray from L’artisan Parfumeur, which I …wait for it….love :)

    Thank you for the always stimulating Saturday Question series-I look forward to it. And I’m holding space for you and your family and your country in my thoughts.

    Take care, and thank you for always being such a generous host,

  3. Fleur de Cassie, Dyptique Essences Insensees 2014, April Aromatics Unter den Linden (officially Linden but very mimosa like), Agartha and Liquid Dreams (both have a strong mimosa scent to my nose). I hope mimosa offers you some uplift.

    • I missed that year of Dyptique Essences Insensees – even though I planned to test it back then.
      Unter den Linden is more linden to me than mimosa. Liquid Dreams… I remember linden in it, but you might be right about mimosa. I should check if I still have a sample.


  4. I only have a couple of mimosa scents. Alma de Canarias Dulce which I perceive as more white floral than mimosa & EA Green Tea Mimosa which is a simple floral summer cologne really. I have sample of Fleur de Cassie somewhere but have no scent memory of it.
    I must search out all your suggestions!

  5. For those who haven’t put their nose to the mimosa in real life…early spring is the time to visit a nearby florist. They usually have a pail or bucket full for their arrangements. Acacia dealbata is often identified as the most fragrant.


  6. Sorry to be so late replying. I’ve had some health challenges, but it’s all getting better now. My fave mimosas are Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom, Prada Infusion de Mimosa, Miller Harris Lumiere Doree’ and Gas Bijoux’s Sea Mimosa, a really lovely mimosa with a bit of ocean air in the background. Gas Bijoux is a company from the French Riviera that just recently started making perfumes. They began as jewelers, as the name implies. Beautyhabit had a Zoom event with their perfumes last week and I very much enjoyed trying them.


    • I’m glad that you’re back – it doesn’t really matter a week or a month later. I hope you’re feeling better.

      I missed that event at Beautyhabit (but I bought the next two events! :) ).
