I would definitely pick Midnight in paris EDP. Its much more refined, seductive and enjoyable IMO. The longevity is also better than John Varvatos. Also MiP is selling for almost $45 at fragrancenet (usually sells for $115). The price is a total bargain!
Personally, I am in the minority that likes John Varvatos a bit better. Every time I smell Midnight in Paris, I think it's a lesser version of Dior Homme Intense (with leather instead of Iris). But to be honest, I wouldn't seek out either one.
Current Top Five:
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
5. Creed Original Vetiver
