L’Artisan Parfumeur Mimosa is a beautiful light and feminine fragrance that is perfect for flirty spring days and hot summer nights. L’Artisan Parfumeur describes the scent:
“A reminder of weekends spent at the Riviera, the perfume carries you away to the elegant shores of Cote d’Azur…Imagine the blossoming trees, the cool sea breeze, the elegant and leisurely way of life – bottled in Mimosa Pour Moi! The true mimosa soliflore, the fragrance embodies this heavenly aroma: from the flowers to the leaves to the stems. Fresh and softly-green, the scent is forever changing on the skin, every second revealing a new, silky-smooth aspect. Radiant and happy, Mimosa Pour Moi is eternal spring“
Well, I have never spent weekends at the Riviera but I have lots of experience with mimosa. Some of my most plesant memories are attached to fluffy, mimosa blossoms. Mimosa Pour Moi opens with green and fresh notes that resemble the leaves on the mimosa. It is crisp like violet leaves and “green”. It becomes fruity but not syrupy or overly sweet like designer fruity-florals. It has blackcurrant buds which add a sweet tartness. Most of the fragrance wears like candied violets, sheer musk, cucumbers and a delicate vanilla. It’s sheer and almost aquatic. The dry-down is soft, “fluffy” and like an olfactory representation of the flower.
Notes listed include violet leaf, mimosa, mimosa, vanilla and cassis. Launched in 1992. PERFUMER – Anne Flipo
Give mimosa Pour Moi a try if you like sheer, light florals. Or perfumes like Fragnoard Mimosa, Cerruti 1881 Edition Blanche, Keiko Mecheri Datura Blanche and/or Emmanuel Levain Mystic Datura.
Projection and longevity are below average. That is my only real issue with this fragrance.
The 3.4 oz bottle retails for $120 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
