Mimollete is orange coloured edam.  The authentic french version uses cheese mites on the surface, but I wouldn't recommend introducing them into any cave.  If you want the same surface micro flora, just buy a chunk at the store and wash the rind back onto your cheeses.

It's easy.   Just make up a r percent salt water solution then dip your rag or brush in it.scrub the mimolette to get bits of real rind on your rag/brush then brush/rub your cheese.  It will transfer the microflora.

sorry, was on my smart phone which isn't very smart.  It should read 3%.
