    MiP has been a favorite in my collection for better than a year now, and i just recently got a bottle of Bulgari Black. They do smell very similar, but i get much better projection and longevity from MiP (edp or edt). The Bulgari smells a little less feminine imo, but they both smell so similar, i'm not sure how often i'll actually reach for Black over MiP. I get that Bulgari did it first, but VC&A did it right.

    Bvlgari Black is so much better imo. Actually, I may be one of the few people who completely dislikes MIP. I have only tried the EDP, I may like the EDT, but I hear they are quite similar. To me, MIP EDP smells like a watered down Bvlgari Black mixed with a watered down Dior Homme, and some extra cheap floral notes.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    I can agree to this. I consider BB one of the top 10 designer bottles ever and will probably own both eventually.

    BB is harsh from the top and MIP specifically EDP is very smooth tranquil as vanilla(tonka) is so soothing and can't never over spray on it, perfect romantic scent that will entice those around you in close proximities and never offend: So yes Midnight in Paris EDP is my pick....Cheerios

    Have both in my collection. I use MiP almost exclusively as a date scent. Bulgari Black is more versatile.

    me too, I am not a fan of either fragrances, Though the bottle for MIP is 1000x better than Blacks lol.
    Quality wise MIP is more smooth but Black has more bite.

    MIP

    Both are great bottles btw. Both awesome scents. But MIP is refined and the "smoother" version. But gotta give BB credit for being the original.

    I do like both with a slight edge to MIP here. Black is a fine scent but it is just waaaaaay way too soft. I like when others notice that I am in fact wearing something. MIP is slightly better in that department, though really not by much...

    Black! It's got so much more character.
