Mimosa absolute is used extensively in perfumery, cosmetics and, sometimes, in aromatherapy. When used in perfumery, it tends to bring harmoney among the other aromas in the mix. The aroma is warm, sweet floral with a spicy odor. It is said to be relaxing and may assist in overcoming anxiety.
Botanical name: Acacia mirensi. Country of origin: India. Extracted from the flowers.
This is a very thick product, you will have to heat the container in very hot water until it liquifies before you'll be able to use it.

I have tried several varieties of mimosa absolute but this is, by far, the most aromatic. The texture is much better to work with than other mimosa absolute I have purchased. I make solid perfume, and the scent of this absolute, evolving as you wear it on your skin, is both alluring and comforting.

I really loved this scent. It smells like a fresh oriental scent. Very pleasing and I think it will mix well with a lot of other essential oils.

Green, Herbaceous, Soft Spices
Camden-Grey's Mimosa absolute is unbelievably gorgeous. It provides wonderful, green base notes to aromatic compounds but is broad enough to also offer center notes of grassy herbs, gentle spices and damp, virgin soil. I cannot praise the aroma, quality and value highly enough. The absolute is thick, sticky and viscous. Warm it slightly to loosen it up. I've found that using a small stainless steel spoon or flat mixing instrument works well to blend it into an essential oil compound. It blends well with wood oils, Oakmoss & Ylang Ylang.

Sweet and Spicy
The smell of mimosa is sweet and just a bit spicy. I used it basically as a fixative for some lighter scents. A little of it goes a long way, but it is a little difficult to work with (maybe it was just me). You have to get it hot to liquefy, and keep it warm.
