MITSOUKO BY ARITA PORCELAIN LAB
Guerlain has collaborated with Arita Porcelain Lab in Japan to create a limited porcelain edition of the Mitsouko bottle. According to Arita Porcelain Lab, the design of the bottle combines Japan's Rising Sun Flag with traditional symbols of good fortune. The Rising Sun Flag is both currently and historically linked to the naval defence of Japan. As such, the bottle design reflects the history of the perfume Mitsouko, whose name was borrowed from the heroine in Claude Farrère's novel "La Bataille" about the love affair between a British naval officer and the wife of a Japanese admiral during the Russo-Japanese War.
Like last year's Muguet porcelain bottle, it comes empty with a 75 ml EdT refill bottle on the side, as the cork that holds the bottle stopper doesn't fit tightly enough to prevent leakage. The set is priced at around 380 € and is now available in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Maison Guerlain reports that it will arrive in Paris after the summer holidays.
