Mitzah is inspired by Dior’s muse and friend, Mitzah Bricard. She liked leopard print. And dames in leopard print should inspire perfumes.
Mitzah opens as a soft amber with a noticeable cool, metallic coriander note. The cinnamon in this reminds me of the cinnamon in Malle Musc Ravaguer. Mitzah is an amber, a seamless amber. It isn’t overly spicy. It isn’t “hefty”; nor, is it sheer. Mitzah is just right. With time it becomes this musky honeyed amber with hints of smoke.
Mitzah wears like Mitzah’s leopard fur coats. It’s cozy, warm, elegant.
Notes of coriander, rose, spices, cinnamon, labdanum, vanilla, honey, patchouli, frankincense and incense. Launch date 2010. PERFUMER – François Demachy
Try Mitzah if you like amber or if you like perfumes like Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan, Malle Musc Ravageur, By Kilian Back to Black and/or By Amber Oud. Dior is calling Mitzah feminine. It’s unisex. Don’t let them fool ya.
Mitzah has average projection and above average longevity.
Mitzah is only available at the Las Vegas store (702)-369-6072. It comes in 2 rather large sizes that retail for $155-$230.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Metallic, spicy amber incense. It’s a really good amber. If I didn’t already own a lot of other really ambers, I’d own this.
