JASMINE (with a teeny bit of mimosa)
For an alleged mimosa soliflore (judging by the name at least...), Czech & Speake MIMOSA packs a mighty punch of jasmine! I actually wondered upon application whether there might have been a decanting error. It seemed quite clear that my carded manufacturer's sample should actually read JASMINE--and a big fat, relatively indolic one at that!

Once the opening died down a bit, I did catch a waft or two of mimosa, but just as much ylang, so I think that people looking specifically for mimosa are bound to be disappointed by this composition. I like it as a jasmine perfume embellished by other floral notes, but the mimosa is really fighting for recognition here. In an effort to confirm that I was not merely imagining this, I compared this composition to Demeter Vintage Naturals 2009 MIMOSA. No, I was not imagining it: Czech & Speake MIMOSA is much more about jasmine than mimosa!

Once again, I am pleased both by the natural-smelling components of this Czech & Speake creation and also by the excellent sillage and longevity for an alleged cologne. The drydown is relatively soapy, as others have observed.
