Summary: What is the scent of melancholy? This bizarre child of some post-war Europe is staring at you with its beautiful slanted eyes and smiles wistfully. Noone is certain how it was baptized with that delicate and mellifluous name anymore. A name that steps in two different worlds. The one of mystery and the one of the morning light.
Summary: Mitsouko is instantly recognizable, very French imo, and quite agreeable on my skin. The Asian influence is subtle, and the notes & structure are refined. On me, the EDP starts heavy and then moves to something surprisingly light & fresh before the base asserts itself. I'm working through a sample vial, and I've been fully prepared to buy a bottle. Yet, I can't bring myself to love it enough to own.
Excerpt: I originally found out about Guerlain from a male friend who had the men's Vetiver fragrance and I was very impressed. I noticed so many other Guerlain fragrances that I decided to take a risk and go with Mitsouko even though I usually only like sweeter, fresher, not near as spicy fragrances like Calvin Klein Euphoria, Vera Wang Shier Veil, Miyake L'eau D'issey, etc., so this truly was a surprise when I tried it.
