    I assume that this refers to their exclusives, Prada No 1-10...?

    Yeah, I certainly hope so. I can't imagine they'd stop producing ALL of their fragrances.

    They told me they are no longer selling fragrances at all. Maybe the boutiques are just no longer carrying fragrances. I always take what I hear from SAs with a grain of salt, but it is interesting that two of us heard it from two different boutiques.

    I really can't imagine that this is actually the case. Prada fragrances are still heavily stocked and advertised over here in Ireland/UK. It sems unthinkable that they'd pull out of the fragrance market completely.

    I can imagine what happened is that the SAs were told that the boutiques were no longer carrying fragrances, and they misinterpreted is meaning Prada was no longer selling fragrances and thus spread false information.

    I tried this today for the first time, love the bottle, but the fragrance didn't move me at all, just didn't float my boat.

    I felt it smelled rather commonplace and didn't last very long, admittedly they didn't have the EdP, but there you go.

    I did discover that Oriens by VC&A smelled divine on my girlfriend though so that's one down and one up for VC&A.

    I have a sample of this that i've been smelling all day and i really like it. The sampel is of the edt. What's the final word on the EDT Vs EDP? Outside of the edp lasting longer, is the edt project more? Such a small price difference to upgrade to the edp, but i want to make sure its something that someone close to me can smell..

    Guys, I just purchased some samples from THe Perfumed Court and Midnight in Paris EDT was included. I don't know how similar the EDT and EDP are but the top notes of MiP are killing me. They remind of something I smelled before but I can't think of what it is, But I'm loving it. All the samples I bought were niche and it's crazy how good niche fragrances are blended and how good they smell compared to the designer stuff.

    Would I find the Midnight in Paris edp akin to the Opium homme edp? (In terms of its projection and intensity).

    ^No, it's not much like Opium...Opium is much spicier and classically oriental.

    Honestly, just think of a mash-up of Bulgari Black and Dzing! plus extra florals and fruit.

    I tried this edp version a few days ago. The bottle is so much more beautiful than the juice. It strongly reminds me of BLV Black. Creamy milky ( a little ) boozy rubber ( slightly ) leather. Both longervity and sillage are quite good, after about 8 hours, I still can smell it clearly. This scent is not bad, but it is not the scent of Midnight in Paris. I think Double Black is a better name for this scent.

    I recently got a sample of the EDP and I like it a lot. I love that lily of the valley note running through it.
    I just wish they offered a smaller bottle of the EDP!

    Long time ago that I tried Bulgari Blu but I think that one reminded me of Burberry Brit and I can't see a connection between Brit and MiP.
    Acqua di Giò is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?

    I just found 2 days old teststrip with this in my jeans. Basenotes are not bad and I actually like it. It smells very similiar to Jil Sander Man Absolute but bit more feminine.
