Botanical name Acacia farnesiana. A rare and special treat for the perfumers among us! Reminiscent of Mimosa but much stronger, Cassie has a delightfully fresh, sweet floral note. A complex aroma that Burfield describes as fresh, somewhat green, sweet floral with powdery-balsamic notes. To my nose it has a sweet almost honeyed note, as well. Guenther says that it adds a unique warmth and woody-floral note to high-cost perfumes, and notes that it should be used in very low proportions. Like Mimosa, it should add a wonderfully natural note to synthetic blends, as well as softening and rounding other blends.
