In 1919, the Great War was over, leaving France greatly changed. In this effervescent context, Europe was to discover an incredible infatuation with Japan and the culture of the far East. It was hardly a surprise, then, when Jacque Guerlain names his new reation 'Mitsouko', after the name of the heroine in teh bestselling novel La Bataille, written by his friend Claude Farrere.
Mitsouko, a beautiful, married, Japanese woman, secretly loves a British officer. In 1905 the Russo-Japanese war broke out, Mitsouko awaits with dignity the outcome of the battle, nobly dominating her feelings. It is a story that echoes the post-war context.
