    Cassie and mimosa are both members of the Acacia family. Mimosa is sweeter and more refined, while cassie is more full bodied and complex. Both are essential naturals for perfumers, with mimosa often appearing as a rich floral note in fine fragrances and cassie being used to create masterful floral bases or add a je ne sais quoi. Cassie is a wonderful naturaliser and can round out and enrich fragrances at mere traces in much the same way as violet leaves do.

    For clarification, we offer the following:

    Mimosa (Acacia dealbata or decurrens): Natural Absolute, or Mimosa de Provence [base]
    Cassie (Acacia farnesiana): Natural Absolute [this product], or Fleur de Cassie [base]
    Pink Acacia: Unrelated to the acacia plant family this is faux acacia or Black Locust.

    Cassie absolute blends exceptionally well with the aforementioned bases as well as Violet Leaf “Signature” AbsoluteViolette Bleue and the classic synthetics of this family Isoraldeine™ Cetone Alpha (Givaudan), Iralia® (Firmenich), Methyl Ionone Gamma Coeur (IFF) and Methyl Ionone Alpha Extra (IFF).

    Origin: Egypt
    Variety: Acacia Farnesiana
    Part: Flowers
    Method: Alcohol extraction of concrete

    Appearance: Deep olive-green viscous liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    Radiant, green-floral-sweet delight

    This Acacia absolute, in my opinion, is of really nice quality. Apparently, I had already bought Acacia from the same manufacturer in the past without knowing it, because my old absolute (about 10 years old), of which I still have about 20 g left, smells practically identical. So, I’m kinda surprised that Acacia absolute apparently keeps well and hardly oxidizes or changes its smell at all.

    I’ve always preferred the smell of Acacia absolute over Mimosa absolute. Acacia, in my view, has a lot more character and stands out with its green-floral-sweet base profile, which gets a radiant, violet-like background from the naturally contained ionones, clearly from the rosy-floral-sweet scent of Mimosa. - Prominent examples of perfumes with a clear Acacia presence are “Farnesiana” (Caron, 1947) or “Une Fleur de Cassie” (Malle, 2000).
