You have already been given your answers; I am sorry you are struggling to hear them. choroba showed that the strings can be decoded fine, and I explained that you are using a bad value for the encoding.


#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
use warnings;
use feature 'say';
use utf8;

use Encode;

my $str = '1669-SCC-H˘pitauxdeSaint-Maurice-POC.PIF';

say 'UTF-8: ' . encode('UTF-8', $str);
say 'MIME-Header: ' . encode('MIME-Header', $str);

$str = 'test1℗ὓ.txt';

say 'UTF-8: ' . encode('UTF-8', $str);
say 'MIME-Header: ' . encode('MIME-Header', $str);

__END__

$ perl foo.pl
UTF-8: 1669-SCC-H˘pitauxdeSaint-Maurice-POC.PIF
MIME-Header: =?UTF-8?B?MTY2OS1TQ0MtSMO0cGl0YXV4ZGVTYWludC1NYXVyaWNlLVBPQy5QSUY=?=
UTF-8: test1℗ὓ.txt
MIME-Header: =?UTF-8?B?dGVzdDHihJfhvZMudHh0?=


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
