Guerlain Mitsouko EDP is a masterpiece of balance and originality, seemlessly marrying a fruity note of peach with jasmine flowers and May rose and a dry Chypre base. It is a deep interpretation of the fragrance that feels like a rich jewel upon the skin.
Guerlain Mitsouko perfume was created in 1919 and is widely viewed as one of the greatest fragrances of all time. In 1919, Europe was fascinated by Japan and the culture of the Far East. This was the moment when Jacques Guerlain named his new fragrance Mitsouko. Mitsouko means mystery in Japanese and symbolises passionate and mysterious femininity. Jacques Guerlain named his perfume creation Mitsouko; after the name of the heroine in the bestselling novel of that time called La Bataille. Mitsouko, a beautiful married Japanese woman, secretly loves a British officer. In 1905, the Russo-Japanese war breaks out. Mitsouko awaits with dignity the outcome of the battle, nobly dominating her feelings. For his tribute to this novel and moment in time, Jacques Guerlain had the incredible and daring idea of combining a chypre with a very fruity peach note, giving this fragrance all of its modernity and blending this with a mysterious dry-down that uses Cinnamon and Exotic Spices with luxurious Amber and darkly Chypre tones of Underbrush and Vetiver.
