Product Overview

Mimosa Absolute has a soft, sweet-powdery, honey-like, deep floral aroma with gentle green and woody back notes. Powerful, intimate and alluring for all genders, the sunny yellow blossoms of Mimosa offer a soft, sweet fragrance that heralds the joyful beginning of spring. In a very unusual pairing, Mimosa is featured in Annick Goutal’s Eau de Charlotte, where it compliments both Black Currant Bud and Cacao absolutes.[4]

This fast-growing plant from the Mint family (Lamiaceae) has small, white flowers abundantly filled with nectar that are especially attractive to bees, thus its name, Melissa – melittena in Greek for 'honey bee'.[1] One source states that the local name for the plant in many countries of central and southern Europe is 'heart's delight'.[2] An exceptionally low yield (about 0.05%) makes Melissa a very costly oil and one that is commonly adulterated with inexpensive oils like Lemongrass, Citronella and Litsea Cubeba.[3],[4] French producers noted that, in 1988, while world production of Melissa oil amounted to no more than 50 pounds, sales of over 1,000 pounds were recorded![5]

There's a gentle power in this unique essential oil, according to Gabriel Mojay, who expounds upon the enlivening lemon-fresh, honey-like sweetness of aroma.[6] Melissa blends particularly well with Bergamot in elevating room sprays, or with Lavender in nighttime linen sprays. A Melissa-Rose (highly diluted) lotion for hand massage is a lovely treat for the elderly.[7]
