    Default Bois d argent and midnight in paris

    Hey guys... Wanted to get your opinion on which you'd pick up bases on the following criteria

    Overall smell

    Longevity /projection

    Compliments

    I know these two are not identical but both have peaked my interest and honestly do not need both. If

    Bois d'Argent

    Edit: MiP may have a bit better projection.

    I love Bois d'Argent at first, but then it has a musk that hits me as metallic and bilge-y. So I'd have to vote for MIP.

    MIP because there's an annoying honey note in Bois D'Argent which destroys its otherwise ethereal quality. In terms of potency MIP is MVP

    Own both. Bois D'Argent by a mile. Although i'm curious about the MiP EDP version.

    Have both. Bois is the better made of the two. However, as far as compliments and projection/longevity goes, MIP gets the prize.

    I am probably a little skewed because I own, but really do not care for MiP, whereas I really enjoy Bois d'Argent.

    I got mine from FragranceX for $51.00 plus free shipping with code "FREE"

    Just checked and there were only 11 bottles left.

    Yes I am thinking of going blind on this. I am concerned of this smelling feminine as I read in a small minority of reviews.

    BdA requires a lot of sprays, and I doubt anyone will smell it other than yourself. Dior's Hypnotic Poison is BdA on steroids. I think both are unisex, but I wear BdA(and gave the girl I like Hypnotic Poison).

    I have not tried MiP yet but understand it is similar Bulgari Black, which I love.

    I only tried BdA very briefly and the sample wasn't atomized. With that being said I found that the longevity and projection were below average on this fragrance. While the longevity on MIP was outstanding. The projection on Midnight in Paris was fairly strong the first 2-3 hours and then dried down to a skin scent that lasted a good 8+ hours. I really enjoyed Midnight in Paris and wasn't too crazy about Bois d'Argent.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Apple Brandy
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Noir de Noir
    7. 5 o'clock au Gingembre
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Epic Man
    10.Tobacco Vanille

    Taking in the price tags, I say hunting down MiP EDP is the better option
