Story of the fragrance
In 1919, Europe was absolutely fascinated by Japan and the culture of the Far East. This inspired Jacques Guerlain to create the Mitsouko fragrance, named after the hero of the bestselling romance of the time, La Bataille. The story took place in 1905, at the time of the Russo-Japanese war, and in it the beautiful Mitsouko, married to a Japanese admiral, secretly loved a British officer. Both men had to go to war and Mitsouko waits to see which of them will return.
The fragrance is enclosed in a wonderful Art Nouveau bottle designed by Georges Chevalier.
