Mimosa — sleek and golden. Mimosa is a perfectly blended floral fragrance marrying the sweet notes of benzoin, vanilla, peach and heliotrope with a heart of French mimosa, iris and natural violet leaves. Bergamot and an extract from the foliage of Sicilian lemon trees add freshness and lift.
Creamy sandalwood and a hint of earthy oakmoss join a vibrant and long-lasting musk accord, which radiates through the whole perfume.
Perfumer’s Notes: Forging new paths
The star Mimosa, otherwise known as Beta Crucis, is the second brightest star in the Southern Cross (Crux) constellation. In ancient times it was the only star of the Southern Cross to be visible to the Ancient Greeks and Romans (who regarded it as part of Centaurus). It was, perhaps, a little hint at just how far the influence of these amazing cultures would spread across the world via Great Britain.
My maternal family were early settlers to New Zealand, arriving in Wellington in 1841, just one year after the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. We have remained in the same region for the past 180 years and it was the celebration of this anniversary that inspired me to create Mimosa, a perfume laden with rich florals. Italian citrus and the imperial Iris remind us of the European origins of the family, while the mimosa flower (abundant in the southern hemisphere) and Mimosa star represent our new place in the world.
For generations, we have lived and died under that star, Mimosa, which unites us to our ancestors. For generations, we have toiled in the salt-rich air in this new place... this new home. And here we stand, today, amongst other families, men, women and children, just like us, forging new paths.
