Named after the heroine in the bestselling novel of 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. Jacques Guerlain had the incredible and daring idea of combining a Chypre with a fruity peach note, giving this fragrance its modernity.
Designed by Georges Chevalier, its bottle is underscroed with graceful scrolls typical of Art Nouveau. Its avant-garde stopper, in the form of a hollowed heart, represented a real technical feat at the time.
