Peachy - oakmoss - spicy
Apart from any trend about this flanker, it's still a daring chypre fruity that no one bothers to release with the current prohibitions of ingredients. Mitsouko EdP opens like a noble chypre with astringent bergamot and intoxicating floral curtain, and swirls to mossy woody warmth of base by the... Read more

A True Icon
Mitsouko! You were the one that got away but were murdered by the cowards. The one who escaped history to haunt me. What is it that you want? What is your mystery? Every time I spray you on you're telling me new things, new stories new fairy tales. Why won't you reveal all your secrets at once?... Read more

Guerlain never lets me down
A very complex cypher. Oakmoss, vetiver, spices. There's a soft citrus in the opening with a hint of lilac. It's very different. The drydown in divine and spicy. This is a real work of art. I can understand why it's so popular, and timeless. This was for the EDP. Jun 03 2014 Read more

Chemistry mismatch
I tried so hard to love Mitsouko, but ended every time having nausea and headaches. I get almost all notes, but they form a sort gasoline smell on my skin. So sad..

The Reference Chypre
I am wearing today my old time favorite Guerlain : both the perfume extract and the EDP. What more can be told about this masterpiece. It is unbelievable that this perfume remains "ageless", although created in 1919, this perfume remains THE reference chypre for many women & men. I... Read more

Amazing Moss
When I found and scored an unopened bottle of vintage Mitsouko, when I smelled it on arrival, I thought of the lyrics from that Julie Andrews song, "somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good." The original Mitsouko is an incredible perfume. Think of lying under... Read more

Ode to green woody perfumes
Mitsouko is an ode to green woody perfumes.I can't find any similarity with Femme de Rochas.On me it is green and not yellow.It is woody, powdery and soft. It is best at winter time when the cold air caress your face.I cannot smell the peach in this aromatic pyramid. A great inspiration!! Read more

For Women?
I don't see how this is a woman's fragrance. It's a nice spicy smell that I would love to smell on my honey-buns neck.

Starts out with pepper and bergamot which smells terrible, then five minutes later I like it but it has turned into a cedar and spice fragrance.

I've lost too many to be happy...
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... Read more

The Shadow of your Smile
Mitsouko is not a fragrance but an experience. This is mine. Take an eight week old baby from it's crib at 4 pm. It's bathtime. Droplets of breast milk have run down into the creases of his neck where they smell interesting but not offensive. The soft scent of cotton wafts up from baby's skin and... Read more

Serge Diaghiljev's favourite
It used to be a great unisex scent, Serge Diaghiljev's favourite, but many aspects of the original "Mitsouko" have changed over the years (not only the gener-attribution). This review is dedicated to the pre-reformulation-formula, which was wonderfully harmonious and achieved a... Read more

For Regal Femmes and Beyond Alpha Men
It usually takes many years of mistreatment from heat and light in poorly-maintained warehouses to achieve the smell of dusty, musty, crushed flowers in a mediciny, space-heater way. Mitsouku saves you the effort of such abuse by opening up with that exact effect. What would happen if you aged... Read more

There is no point in writing a new review of the bad reformulations. 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...

Solitude
Reviewing the reformulation, which, bizarrely enough, I prefer to the vintage. Go figure, lol. This is my private time/don't come close/stay away/leave me the hell alone scent. Not in an angry, hostile manner, but for when I feel introspective and have the need to be by myself. I love the... Read more

Faded Glory
I'm not sure what I was expecting from Mitsouko, but this is definitely not it! Right off the bat, I get Lemon Pledge ... and my nose is suddenly very attuned to lemon, don't ask me why! The literature on this one gushes about the lengthy opening, mysteriously not delivering up the beauty of the... Read more

Touch-up work aside, we're all aging at the same rate.
Mitsouko’s most charming quality is that it suggests an aging face. Remember back in the day when people aged visibly? Qualities like patience, endurance, maybe even wisdom suggested that there was a reward to having come out on the other side of youth and middle-age. Of having gained... Read more

A green, mossy chypre in all its glory
I still have a lot to learn about chypres, so it made perfect sense to try one of the world's most famous chypres, Mitsouko. 'Perfumes: The Guide' uses Mitsouko as their chypre reference, hailing it as one of Guerlain's best masterpieces. I'm young, not really a big fan of chypres, however I do... Read more

A scent to admire
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... Read more

Rapsody in Late September
