Mimosa pour Moi
Mimosa pour Moi by l’Artisan Parfumeur is a light yet persistent and long lasting mimosa soliflore. It has the typical cucumber-like mimosa absolute top notes, along with a woody sensation of crushed leaves and branches, and a slightly violet and milky fig-leaf like sting to it that is achieved in part by a subtle use of Cassie absolute (the more wet, woody and deeply penetrating variety of mimosa I’ve mentioned in my recent post). The base is sweet with a sheer vanilla accord. Overall, Mimosa pour Moi is characterized by a watery-woody floralcy and subtle powdery and milky-green woodiness. It reminds me quite a bit of a few Olivia Giacobetti's creations - Philosykos, Premier Figuier, and Ofresia. Yet, the nose behind Mimosa pour Mois is Anne Flipo, who is also the nose behind Verte Violette and Ananas Fizz.
It is not, by any means a “pure” mimosa, but rather an abstract rendition of the idea of this fuzzy flower. Just like the illustration on the l’Artisan labels.
