Special Bottle for Guerlain's Mitsouko Fragrance

January 5, 2017

Limited edition bottle made by Arita Porcelain Lab.

LVMH's Guerlain has tapped venerable Arita Porcelain Lab to create a stunning limited edition interpretation of the iconic bottle that houses Mitsouko, the beauty brand’s chypre perfume composed in 1919 by Jacques Guerlain.
 
World-renowned for its delicately ornate pieces, Arita is celebrating 400 years of ceramic creation this year by combining its savoir-faire with that of Maison Guerlain. To mark this anniversary, the Arita Porcelain Lab has designed a limited edition of the iconic Mitsouko bottle, crafted entirely by hand using traditional techniques that have been passed down over generations.
 
A flagship of Japan’s ceramic industry, the Arita workshop has decorated the Mitsouko bottle with auspicious symbols like the rising sun, traditionally equated with “clear skies” and good fortune; the paulownia to represent elegance;  a plum tree, symbolizing life; the peony to ward off negative energy; and the chrysanthemum, representing longevity.
 
The collaboration between the perfumer and porcelain artisan is featured in an exhibition at the Guerlain boutique on the Champs Élysées, showcasing both the Mitsouko bottle and emblematic pieces from the Japanese porcelain workshop.
