Mitsouko Perfume by Guerlain 2.5oz Eau De Parfum Spray for women. Mitsouko Perfume was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1919. The creation of Mitsouko was inspired by the heroine of Claude Farrcre's novel 'La Bataille, a story of impossible love between Mitsouko, the wife of Japanese Admiral Togo, and a British officer. The story takes place in 1905, during the war between Russia and Japan. Both men went to war, and Mitsouko, hiding her feelings with dignity, waits for the outcome of the battle to discover which of the two men will come back to her and be her companion. Mitsouko is a mysterious fragrance, not allowing everyone to see its beauty. The opening is long, like a play of all beautiful notes, and, of course, this fragrance is not for ordinary daily use. On the skin, it sounds as if it starts from far away, without any allusion to its intensity and sensual side. Mitsouko is one of the well-known aromas of the chypre olfactory group with cool top notes and oakmoss in the base. But it also has a note of a juicy peach, which gives a clear and quiet gourmand nuance. It features bergamot, peach, jasmine, may rose, spices (cinnamon), oakmoss, vetiver, and wood. The fragrance is exuberant, unusual, and elegant, not too sweet, nor heavy, it is well balanced. Eau de Toilette is much sharper, while Eau de Perfume is warmer and nicer. The full richness of the composition, however, is revealed only in the perfume concentration. The bottle has the same shape as the one of Heure Bleue (1912). It is often said that these two bottles are symbols of the beginning (Heure Bleue) and the end (Mitsouko) of the war.
