Jacques Guerlain named his 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. 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. Designed by Georges Chevalier, its bottle is underscored 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. Conçu par George Chevalier, son flacon est souligné par de gracieuses volutes caractéristiques de l’Art Nouveau. Véritable prouesse technique, son bouchon avant-gardiste est en forme de cœur évidé.
