Aubepine-Acacia (Creed)

AUBEPINE-ACACIA/ CREED (1965)

The lemon mimosa. For an entirely different take on the mimosa tree, there is always Aubépine Acacia from the Creed Private Collection series (typically very atypical scents that are as unusual as they are expensive). Les Senteurs, which is one of the only places to stock this scent, describes it as ‘a return to a more gracious age’, the ‘scent of country hedges enhanced with powdery acacias and mimosa’, and the scent is a refreshing alternative to more traditional, powdery mimosas. Starting with a very sharp, citric and green chord of lemon, bergamot, pine and galbanum, the perfume gradually reveals the warm, almond-milk caress of hawthorn flowers and mimosa over hay and ambergris. Fresh, distinctive, and ideal on either sex.

    I managed to get a big bottle years ago and think it’s one of the loveliest scents ever made. I still have a little for special occasions. It reminds one of Proust et ses aubepines et eglantines a Combray. c’est toute la fraicheur du printemps
