    Red face I just ordered a bottle of Midnight in Paris from Neimans

    it was a no brainier to choose the EDP because one was available. I have high hopes on this one.

    Because of a similar smoky rubbery top, or an overly intense vanilla base ?

    I sampled this yesterday at Neimans. Alas, though, only the tester was in so i couldnt buy it. Upon first spritz the leather note is quite prominent and then fades after about on hour. Then i was left with a wonderful and extremely powderey tonka scent. Could easily be a ladies scent. I dont usually like mens fragrances but this is a winner.

    Well my bottle arrived today and I could not wait to try it. The bottle is very well done but agree that Hermes beat them to it.

    The fragrance starts off slightly floral then heads to a smokey tea accord which I can see the bulgari black comparison to. Bottom notes are a sweet tonka bean of set by a slightly bitter incense note.

    I have the EDP and in all it is a very soft scent with very little to no sillage - it really hugs close to the skin. It last but stay very close to you.

    Thanks for the mini review. I find that EDT's are better for projection, than EDP's.

    Mine has finally arrived today. My first impression, on my skin, is that i cannot see anything powdery or feminine on this one. It really has a leather and burnt rubber aura, but it doesn't remind me of bvlgari black. I like the base, that is gourmand but not foodly, with a creamy vanilla and hints of tonka bean over the leather aroma. I detect something incensy too, but its sheer. I couldn't feel anything flowery on this one - maybe i'll need to try it more times to see this aspect.
    The bottle and package looks exquisite, and to me it's like the male counterpart of Feerie.
    I really liked this one, it's a winner to me, a rarity in the dull male fragrance aisle of launches

    I'm very eager to try this. What does the bottle actually look like? In the ad it looks so unusual and quite beautiful, but in the other one it looks like it's just a blue bottle with a painted on constellation.

    Okay now THAT I like! Thanks for the pic! This is what I had originally seen posted:



    But in that pic it looks far, far more appealing. Well that's good to know! Now all I need to do is try it.

    Hi

    Does anybody know where can I get a bottle of MIP edp? I am happy to use a US retailer but not keen on paying luckyscent prices.

    I will use a forwarding address to keep the costs down.

    I see one on Amazon but don't know if it is too goo to be true, as it's very cheap. It is priced similar to an EDT bottle sold by Amazon directly. Here is the link:

    It is a great scent, but longevity is horrible on my skin for some reason...

    Last year I purchased MIP, edp, from Amazon. It is wonderful. More Intense and longer lasting than the edp. I adore this fragrance.

    Great scent, and one of the best bottles in history.

    midnight in paris is one of my favorites.

    as for the comparisons to bulgari black, i understand them. but mip is sweeter and more powdery, with a bit more citrus.

    i'll take mip over bulgari black, but both are nice.

    I adore Midnight in Paris. I have both the edt and the edp. I had to purchase the edp because the edt did not last on my skin. Both concentrations smell similar but the edp is a bit more intense and has much better longevity and projection. I receive many compliments when wearing MIP.

    I agree with senore1. Beast mode longevity and projection.

    EdP does last about 15+ hours consistently on my skin and I too receive many compliments from this fragrance.

    If you can get your hands on the edp version, go for it. I have both versions and the edp is considerably longer lasting

    I definitely ordered this one. Delivery was attempted on Nov. 24 (while I was on vacation), so it's definitely not 3-5 weeks. I would love to tell you guys whether $40 for the EdP was too good to be true (lol how could it not be??) once I receive this thing, haha.

    $49.99 at Marshalls.........sold as a gift set. Not worth the $49.99 IMO. I sprayed it on my arms and walked away from it to let it settle and dry. To me this is way to powdery and vanilla like...def. more of a womans scent. I passed!

    To be honest I dont remember, I was very excited when I spotted it so I just grabbed it oppened, sprayed and walked away from it for good. Too feminine and had that scent on me all day, had to tripple soap the area to get rid of the scent.
