Fragrance Focus: Mimosa
Posted on March 08 2023
Friday, March 8th, was International Women's Day. Celebrated every year throughout the world, this holiday recognizes the social and political struggles that women have faced for centuries.
In Italy, it is traditional on this day to give yellow Mimosa flowers to women as a sign of respect. Nowadays, women also hand the flowers to other women as a sign of solidarity. The custom of giving the mimosa flower can be traced back to Italy following the end the World War II. On March 8, 1946, Italian feminists picked the mimosa flower as a symbol of strength, sensibility, and sensitivity.
Mimosa's origin can be traced back to Australia. It was first introduced in Europe around 1820 and, being a fast growing shrub, it spread rapidly. The mimosa flower is typically the first to bloom - as early as January - and its fluffy yellow flowers cheer up the winter landscape and indicate spring's arrival.
Our Mimosa fragrance is one of our most feminine and elegant. The perfume has both a freshness and yet a subtle powdery note. It's floral but not obviously so. A favourite with those who love the iconic Chanel No 5 it couldn't seem a more appropriate time to celebrate this distinctive scent.
This glowing feminine fragrance has a fresh and floral yet deceptively rich quality. The delicate powdery quality of fluffy yellow mimosa flowers is combined with touches of delicious golden fruits and fresh dewy notes.
A true classic, Mimosa is timeless and elegant. It can be worn on all occasions, day or night.
