That fragrance that is delicately dancing up your nostrils is the beautiful Mimosa and it is one of my all time favourites! After doing a bit of research I found out the Mimosa is actually renowned for its healing properties and is widely used in alternative medicines for its uplifting and energising effect. That must be why it has made me feel so happy!
