*Mimosa is a tree with beautiful pink flowers. In the Netherlands we only know them as little plants; "Kruidje-roer-me-niet". Its leaves close when you touch them. The big one in Nepal is its bigger brother and only closes its leaves at night, therefor also called the sleeping tree. When I look at the picture I cannot remember this flower had any scent at all though one of Diptyque's famous scented candles is called Mimosa. I have also read once that the flowers only last for one day which really is a shame but makes it even more special, don't you think?
