J.Hannah Co.'s Mimosa Inspired Natural Perfume

Last month I made a couple limited edition blends for a pop-up shop during Austin Fashion Week. Here's what inspired the perfume Poolside Mimosa.

Once I smelled it, I knew I was going to create a luxurious perfume. Mimosa Absolute has a very floral, fresh, and soft quality, which unfortunately can be lost if paired with bossy loud oils. So I kept it present by using a few other florals like jasmine, ylang ylang, and phenyl ethyl alcohol (a woody and rose-y isolate). It's amazing how quickly this formula became cloyingly sweet, so I tempered it with drier aromas like blood cedarwood and sandalwood. The final formula? An absolutely gorgeous floral and woody fragrance perfect for lounging poolside.

The limited edition Poolside Mimosa perfume is available for sale here.

Interesting Fact: Though extremely beautiful and fragrant, Mimosa trees are considered an invasive, non-native, pest of a plant in certain areas. Learn more from The University of Florida Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants.
