Beloved for its delicate smell and winter-to-spring transition symbolicism, mimosa which once was hard to come by in perfumery, has become more often seen or rather smelled since Guerlain Champs-Elysées launched in 1996. Still, it is not one of the most commonly worked-upon florals. This spring 2011, Annick Goutal are offering a new soliflore called Le Mimosa...
Their new window displays are hard to miss on a sunny street as the yellow of the packaging literally pops at you and glows in the springtime sun.
Le Mimosa Eau de Toilette was composed by perfumer Isabelle Doyen in collaboration with Camille Goutal who also designed the packaging, the latter which wants to tap into a revivalist 80's trend.
The noses conceived the perfume as a fruity-floral. Notes include bergamot, mimosa absolute, juicy peach, anise, Florentine iris, white musks, milky sandalwood.
It is a limited-edition. Prices: 89€ and 67€ for 100 ml and 50 ml respectively. In the US, it's available at Nordstrom.
