Instead, I'll share my story: My Ugly Divorce from Mitsouko Upon draining the last drop of my beautiful 3.1oz gold-encased bottle of Guerlain Mitsouko, I reached immediately for my back-up 2.5oz bottle containing, I naïvely thought...
Summary: This Guerlain fragrance stands out from the crowd in a distinct way. It is sharp and acrid when I first spray it. Oddly enough, it smells like cat pee and moss on the initial spray. The first time I smelled it I was disappointed.
Summary: This is a perfume I have worn since the '70's, but this particular scent from this distributor is lacking some suble deep notes that the old parfum had and that lingered for many, many hours. This perfume is much lighter in fragrance.
Summary: Guerlain is undoubtedly one of the greatest perfume houses in the world. However, some EU regs in the 80's caused them to change the ingredients and formulations of some of their older perfumes, including this one. This doesn't smell the same as vintage Mitsouko. I re-sold it.
Excerpt: I read somewhere Mitsouko had change.Guerlain´s house did it with the perfume. Now I bought my bottle I agree> It is not anymore the same intense and unique fragrance I used to smell and admire.
