Mimosa Decurrens Abs 30%

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of the mimosa  absolute decurrens species exudes sweet-woody, spicy, and rich waxed honey character in abundance with somewhat vegetative and green violet qualities dancing in the background.  A much darker, richer and fulsome experience in comparison with the sweeter and more innocent dealbata species which we also offer. This absolute is produced in India, flowers, twigs and the beautiful pinnate leaves are all used to produce the concrete. Once solvent extracted the yellow coloured absolute is of a solid to treacle consistency and is a very challenging material to get into a pourable state. For this reason we now provide this material diluted at 70% in ethanol.”

Arctander has this to say “The absolute is used in numerous lilac bases, violet, muguet, high-class new mown hay, colognes, ambres, etc. Actually mimosa absolute will generally act to round off the “rough notes” from synthetic materials, and “lift” the natural materials in a perfume composition.”
