In celebration of the 100 years of the fragrance, Guerlain makes a come back to the origins and Japonism with a passage into the world of calligraphy and gold leafing technique. The manufacturing of gold leaf has been exercised for generations in Kanazawa, Japan. It is in the Hakuichi workshop that they continue to hammer gold until you get perfect finesse. Only a few Masters of Art hold this know-how today.

Each limited edition bottle of Mitsouko is exclusively decorated using the chirashi technique. The artist Suitou Nakatsuka who is responsible for the decoration made with respect to the techniques of ancestral calligraphy. She illustrates a branch of plum to signify the nature of Mitsouko on which are set red and white blossoms.
