Mimosa: the tree that is called “mimosa” in the northeastern United States, with its pink powder-puff flowers, is not the mimosa that shows up in perfume. The mimosas used in perfumery are the trees of the acacia genus, a different type altogether, with feathery leaves and clusters of yellow flowers that look like little pom-poms.
Civet: the African civet cat looks like a fox, and is related to the mongoose. Civet musk is produced by a gland at the base of the cat’s tail. Pure civet is said to have a strong, disagreeable odor, but in small quantities to add depth and warmth to a fragrance. In addition, civet acts as an excellent fixative. Most modern fragrances use synthetic substitutes.
