I'd say MiP is much more similar to Code than it is to Bvlgari Black or Dior Homme. The thing is, if MiP had a rubber note, it would smell just like Black. If it had anise in it, it would smell just like Code. I prefer MiP ove Code b/c MiP lasts 6-8 hours, whereas Code lasts 4-5 hours and sticks incredibly close to the skins.
Cool man...love the insight you gave on this. Based on your description the 2 are very similar. Glad you shed more light on it because I was about to go and get Code tomorrow, but something told me to wait and try MiP first for some reason.
Code does smell good to me....and if MiP smells better I'm sure I will like. I don't believe in blind buy's tho therefore..
I just ordered a decant from perfumedcourts.com it was the EdT.
Which last 6-8hrs with MiP the EdT or EdP???
