    Default Midnight In Paris

    Many people say this is like Bulgari Black, but I never tried BB so I can't judge on that. MiP has some similarities with Dior Homme.

    Though its a male fragrance, I find this easily unisex.

    It's powdery and a little sweet, but very subtle and not loud.

    There aren't many reviews for this one. 12 positives and 4 bads (with 7 nuetrals).

    What do you think of this one?

    I don't smell similarities to Dior Homme. I have the EDT of MiP and I think it's just not for me. It wears a bit too feminine and I don't like the tea note, which to me stands out and lingers. Thats just me though, I see plenty of people who seem to dig this one.

    One of my evening favorites - Beautiful drydown as well. It seems to last reasonable 6+ hours on me as well. I haven't tried Bvlgari Black, so I can't comment on their similarities.

    I think people make the connection between MiP and Bulgari Black because of the tea notes. There is some similarity between the top notes of MiP (EdT, not sure about parfum) and Armani Code, but the drydowns are very different.

    I really like MiP.

    If your going to compare it then Bulgari Black is by far the closest fragrance to it. MiP has a bicycle tire rubber like accord, but it's not as strong in MiP. Besides that they both rely on vanilla as their basenotes. MiP is more powdery and has a more citric quality which in my opinion makes it superior. All the comparison's I've read about Dior Homme seem to mention the lipstick cosmetic bag smell which I don't get in MiP. Overall I think it's a beautiful fragrance, but it's something I have to be in to mood to wear.

    I don't know about Bulgari Black but I do get the similarities between DH and MiP. Nonetheless I find they are not the same as the sweetness in DH is kinda smoky. My sister told me MiP is serious to her.

    The EDT is awesome. I get the DH similarities, but I prefer MIP.

    I dont like the rubber in BB - it's too much. In MiP it's perfect.

    It is pretty - with a nice leather note. Unfortunately, it does not last long on my skin. I got a 5 ML roll-on from TPC and keep re-applying it freely. However, not full bottle worthy for that reason.

    MiP EDP is more similar to Chergui than BB. Although it is a very nice scent, with Chergui in my wardrobe, I rarely reach for MiP

    I still don't understand why some say this is a Bulgari Black clone...that thing smells like flat out rubber in the beginning, this has a sweet leather smell, but not even resembling that rubber tire smell Black has. MIP is much better and more wearable, not to mention sexier.

    I have the EDT. It's very nice. Smells more like Armani Code than Bvlgari Black. It doesn't have the anise note that Code has. It's not masculine at all, but it's perfect to wear on a date or in romantic occasions.

    Midnight in Paris teeters on the feminine side.

    It is VERY similar to Bulgari Black. It is not similar to Dior Homme.

    Does remind of Dior HI, Black, Power...probably 5 more and is very unisex. I like it though.

    I don't like it. The leather, vanilla, and rubber note is all shrouded in a very powdery, feminine haze. I really felt like I was wearing a woman's perfume when I had it on. I think Bulgari Black is a better choice--it's more unisex and dynamic. However, the bottle is beautiful.

    I have the EdP and I'm very fond of it. A compliment-getter. I do see the Dior Homme similarities. Glad I bought it.

    I think it's kinda in the middle of BB and DH myself. But I really don't think MIP goes feminine. That could be, that I have the EDT version, which, from what I've read, is less powdery and thick - so maybe the EDT wears a little more masculine?

    Either way, MIP is a great fragrance that you can get for damn cheap!

    I have the EDP and give it a thumbs up. It has good longevity. It could easily be worn by women as well. The bottle design is exemplary.
