Mitsouko Guerlain: The Most Romantic Fragrance

Sunday, 18 October 2009

Mitsouko Guerlain Fragrance Created by Jacques Guerlain in 1919 Mitsouko became one of fragrances in the chypre line still demanded till now. Jacques Guerlain continued the tradition in perfume production initiated by the unique, the most initial chypre scent by Coty, creating the second vital scent in the family of chypre fragrances. Willing to experiment, the famous perfumer combined quite unusual notes, both natural and synthetic in Mitsouko scent several years prior to appearance of the first aldehydic-floral odor, Chanel №5.

Most scents on the base of chypre are defined with the match of citric upper notes and the end note of the oak moss; Mitsouko is rather the fruity-and-chypre odor when the scent of the juicy peach is added to classic components that give special and a little bit sweet odor to the perfume compound. The synthetic note of peach made by aldehyde C14 allowed having Mitsuoko as unusual, astringent and elegant fragrance, and the notes are well balanced. This scent is not too sweet, nor very heavy.  Besides, the perfume compound includes the notes of bergamot, lemon, rose, jasmine and spices. Mitsouko Guerlain has all the rights to be accepted as the status fragrance altogether with Chanel №5. The scent has all the noble and elegant notes intrinsic to scents proven by the time. Thanks to Jacques Guerlain and his art Mitsouko, the whole Europe fell in the concern with the culture of Japan.

Initially Mitsouko Guerlain was designed exclusively for women, and the true admirers of the scent were legendary Ingrid Bergman and French actress Ines de la Fressange. Nevertheless, Mitsouko was successfully demanded by men as well, including the famous actor Charley Chaplin, who loved Mitsouko Guerlain to the extent that he sprayed the perfume onto the furniture in his house, and Sergey Dyagilev, who once admitted that Mitsouko Guerlain scent reminds of home to him. Mitsouko Guerlain being the favorite scent of the legendary actress Jean Harlow played its fatal joke to her. The second husband of the actress committed the suicide because they finally parted and before he died he poured the entire bottle of Mitsuoko onto himself.

Mitsouko Guerlain has one of the prominent histories in the perfume world. The fragrance got its name to honor the heroine of the novel La Bataille by Claude Farrère. This novel is dedicated to romantic and tragic love history between Mitsuoko, the young wife to the Japanese admiral Togo, and a British officer. The Russian-Japanese War of 1905 parted the beloved couple. The spouse of Mitsuoko and a British officer appeared at the different ends, and Mitsuoko had to wait the final and arrival of her beloved, hiding her real emotions. The history final is rather tragic: her both men died in the battle, and Mitsuoko committed a suicide when she heard of the news.

The word «Mitsouko» means «secret» in Japanese, and the scent totally expresses the symbol, and a rare man can evaluate the mystic charm of Mitsouko Guerlain. Mitsouko Guerlain is assigned for an elegant and calm woman, a little bit enigmatic, as well as any woman with the secret. The fragrance itself is quite abstract, it is rater hard to define and express separate notes that go in harmony with other notes.

Rather graceful bottle from crystal for Mitsouko was created by Baccarat and does differ in design from the bottle of L'Heure Bleue perfume launched by Guerlain House in 1912. Both these bottles symbolized the start (L'Heure Bleue) and the final (Mitsuoko) of the World War I.

Mitsouko Guerlain is still on production being one of the demanded perfumes by Guerlain House. However, like many other vintage scents, Mitsouko Guerlain ceased existing as it was before. Subject to new requirements by the Associations of Perfumers Edward Fresh sometime back managed to re-formulate the perfume compound of the icon scent, removing the notes of oak moss, and thus depriving Mitsouko Guerlain of its unique odor.
