Cassie is native to Egypt, but its renowned therapeutic and aromatic reputation gained fans throughout the Mediterranean and New World. Today, the round, yellow dandelion-like flower is cultivated worldwide, but especially in warm temperate climates. Cassie’s aroma is warm and sweet but not overpowering. The light powdery quality invokes similarities to cinnamon and balsamic, while the subtle spice balances out the fragrance.

The perfume industry enjoys liberal use of cassie. Because cassie has a complementary quality, it adds intensity to perfumes. The most famous use of cassie is in Frederic Malle’s luxury perfume Une Fleur de Cassie. Other applications for using cassie are rose, jasmine, and violet accords. Cassie is mainly found in high-end perfumes.

In medicine, cassie is similarly renowned. The flower has several medicinal uses as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory remedy. People who have rheumatoid arthritis find relief drinking tea infused with cassie or taking cassie supplements. In the ancient Mediterranean world, doctors used cassie to treat sore throats and upset stomachs. Today, those doctors from long ago are validated because cassie has the same uses. Cassie treats cuts and wounds effectively, allowing people to heal without painful scarring or skin discoloration.
