    Default How Similar are Dior Homme and Midnight in Paris?

    I absolutely love Dior Homme, and I've heard that MIP is quite similar. where I live, I cannot test MIP unfortunately, but I am considering making a blind buy. First, what do you think of this fragrance? Second? How similar is it to DH (original)? Would it be redundant to have both in a small fragrance collection? Thanks.

    I am loving MiP right now and females really love it-if you care about that sort of thing. Have not tested it on dudes yet sorry.
    The MiP edp is very similar to me to DHI except without the lipstick/iris note. I dont think it would be redundant to have both....

    I find MIP the most similar to Arpege Homme.

    Yes MiP is without the lipstick note, it's not as sharp and intense as Dior Homme, it's much more mellow. I think Midnight in Paris is an easier wear as it's silky smooth, pretty much clear of top notes. It's more similar to Bvlgari Black if you can try that, just without the faint rubbery note. It's worth a blind buy, but it's out there very cheap online so don't pay lots.

    Thanks for the replies so far. Why is it so cheap? Would you guys recommend the edt or edp?

    It's not always, it's pricey in store but there are some bargains online. I've found it in TK Maxx quite a lot of times too for a wicked price.

    To be honest, the EDT and EDP are reallllly similar, in longevity as well as scent. I'd say go for the EDP, just becuase, I'm guessing it's gonna be a slightly higher concentration, and the price should be no different.
    Good luck dude enjoy!

    Probably so cheap because it was not a great seller in stores for whatever reason. fragrancenet still has the EDP for about $48.

    Not at all similar to me. Dior Homme trounces MIP.

    DH and MiP both have that thick amber heart and sweet vanilla drydown. Their obvious differences is the iris vs leather top notes. MiP also has that nice tea note in its middle stage.

    Thanks for the info. I thought I'll be paying full retail price for the EDP forever.

    dior homme is more masculine (and ironically, it has a lot of feminine notes in it). midnight in paris is more unisex.

    though, i'd take midnight in paris, both in price and quality.

    I like the edt MiP the most. I find almost no similarity to DHI or DH.

    I've recently acquired MiP EDT. I've only sprayed it once but I don't recall noticing any similarity to Dior Homme.
