Dior La Collection Privée Mitzah EDP Perfume Review

Dior Mitzah perfume

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.

Mitzah Bricard

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 EauPINIONMetallic, 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.

    1. Listen, I’m just trying to talk myself out of it by saying I have worthy ambers in my collection 😉 The truth is that aren’t as honeyed as Mitzah and don’t have that cool coriander opening.

      Really the price for this one isn’t so bad. They come in big bottles.

  1. I love amber and this sounds worth checking out to me, except for the metallic part. Maybe it’s too late and I’m too tired after work but I don’t get it. Do you mean metallic like the smell of blood or actual metal? Please enlighten me.

    1. A little of both…difficult to explain but from other reviews it seems like others aren’t picking up on it or at least are “reading” it as something different. I get a cold, metallic coriander. Coriander can be “cold” but it does have a mineral quality to it. It doesn’t hang around too long but I do pick it up more in warmer weather. And then it becomes a warm, sweet thing.
      I know I’m not helping after a long work week…

      1. Thank you that does help! I work in the medical field, afternoons-so not a long work week but a horrific shift. Do not need a metallic-bloody smell in my fumes!

        1. I know exactly what you mean. That may be why I’m so sensitive to such a note. I have had enough of blood/bodily fluid smells from days as a speech therapist.

          Hopefully, next shift will be better!
