Belle Fleur Mimosa Magnifica is a fragrance in their Classic Floral Collection. I expected for Mimosa Magnifica to be a pretty, powdery and delicate floral. And this would have been nice, but Belle Fleur exceeded my expectations. Mimosa Magnifica is a powdery mimosa but it’s not delicate. It has a velvet-like richness.
Mimosa Magnifica is a powdery floral over a sweet amber. It reminds me of old fashioned French perfume, like mimosa and violets wafting in a haze of heady jasmine blossosm in full bloom. The base is a sweet, boozy amber with a French vanilla liqueur. Mimosa Magnifica is like a timid mimosa that channeled her more seductive side by spritzing on a few sprays of a decadent jasmine and amber perfume (think like Guerlain Shalimar). It’s one sultry floral.
Notes listed include bergamot, mimosa absolute, thyme, nutmeg, violet, jasmine, peony, sandalwood, tonka bean, vanilla, amber and benzoin.
I recommend trying Mimosa Magnifica if you like floral ambers or jasmines fragrances. Or if you like scents like Voluspa Baltic Amber, Votivo Fleur Royale, Natori Black Amber & Jasmine and/or Atelier Silver Iris.
Like all the other Belle Fleur candles that I’ve tried, this one has amazing throw and burns clean and evenly.
This candle retails for $74 at Belle Fleur.
