    Default Smell-alikes

    Or a close kinship.

    Bond No. 9 = Givenchy Gentleman

    VC&A Bois d'Iris = Dior Bois d'Argent

    I am looking for something to replace Dior Mitzah. Thinking about Ambre Nuit.

    Not sure if you're only looking for something to replace Dior Mitzah or you would also like other "smell-alikes".
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Looking to replace Mitzah but feel free to add some smell-alikes.

    Why not just buy a bottle of Mitzah? Its really not that expensive. I just sold a bottle for retail to a fellow basenoter in Canada. He didn't like it, and was trying to sell it himself. Its terribly underrated juice. Absolute tragedy it was axed. I only sold it because it was a back up.

    If you want something similar, Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan is similar after about 30mins. Tom Ford Amber Absolute.

    I perceive Mitzah as a frankincense-amber combo, but cannot think of anything in the same proportion. you could go frankincense and get something like Sahara Noir, or you could go amber, as suggested by others.

    Thank you again for the recommendations. I know Dior discontinued this and I will have to look around.

    I like Ambre Nuit a lot... Not exactly a smell-alike for Mitzah but similar in weight and feel and just as enjoyable.

    Cazaubon, I also thought about Ambre Nuit, but the Mitzah is much richer.

    Mitzah is discontinued, like vetiver, but I bet many Saks have old stocks (for instance, I remember seeing both at my local saks long after discontinuation, though I don't know if they're still there).

    Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterennea is the closest to Mitzah IMO.
