Simple. Positive. Relaxing.
"Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray" is written on the bottle and I can only advise you: Do it, pick this cologne up, put it in your shopping basket and take it with you.
"Each Day. Everywhere." it says and yes: this is a so-called evergreen, at least for me.
At first, the scent knows how to surprise: Hey, that awakens memories, that smells 1:1 like the incense corner in the India shops, so the one with the jasmine, melon, flower incense sticks, so not the resinous, unburned, fresh and in my nose also a little artificial, I felt that way before.
And so the scent also remains over a few hours.
After a time, however, the incense impression fades and also the slightly artificial makes way for an unexpectedly lovely, fine floral gentleness, which is unparalleled. Delicate and rather quiet, slightly sweet, but in my nose not in the way mimosa flowers are sweet, this fragrance envelops me with bright friendliness.
And stays - for more hours.
"Simple. Subtle." as it says on the bottle.
I thank LysdeKerk for the wonderful new discovery.

Ridiculously Economical All-natural Mimosa Soliflore
Having experienced the Demeter Vintage Naturals 2009 eau de parfum collection, I was delighted to see that some of the scents were being re-launched. They are no longer called "vintage", but they are still all natural, and the recipes look to be the same. The notes listed at the Demeter website profile for MIMOSA are:

basil, ylang ylang, jasmine, mimosa, vanilla, and tonka bean

This is quite close to the official list for the vintage predecessor. Geranium appears to be no longer included, and the basil appears to be toned down, as this MIMOSA really seems like a fluffy yellow soliflore and is much less green.

In a side-by-side comparison, I realized that this new launch is a truer soliflore, which is good news for those who missed out on the 2009 vintage series anyway but were after an all-natural mimosa soliflore all along. I am baffled by the price of this eau de toilette. The MSRP is $29 for 1.7 ounce, which is less than half the price of the vintage naturals collection, which were already a bargain by most any measure. All natural? Nichesque? What?

It is true that this is eau de toilette, and that was eau de parfum, but I don't notice the concentration difference in the performance, which is all the more striking since I'm pretty sure that the eau de parfum has undergone some evaporation as a result of the screw on atomizers used by Demeter. The good news about the Demeter bottles is that they can be re-used for cologne and what not. The bad news is that if you have them around long enough, the contents may literally evaporate away!

I am very happy with this all-natural creation. One interesting difference I noted is that the liquid in these new bottles seems to have some particulate matter in them, compared to the completely transparent (albeit still colored) solutions of the vintage naturals. Maybe these were prepared by less rigorous means. Certainly they were not subjected to the same degree of filtering.

Still, this is the bargain of the all-natural perfume world, so if you're in the market for a mimosa soliflore, there is no excuse for not giving this one at least a sniff. You can buy a .5 ounce splash bottle for (gasp!) $8!
