    Wink Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight in Paris

    With Van Cleef & Arpels MIP gone is there anything similar out there.

    Yessir. Prada Luna Rossa Black. I'm actually thinking of picking up a bottle so I don't have to use my MiP as much.

    Of course, there's Bulgari Black as well.

    How close would you say Luna rossa is from MIP, I was actually thinking on getting it

    I miss the bottle more than the scent.

    Wow! Just seen the prices on eBay for this. That's crazy! I've not tried the Prada but Bulgari Black is very similar to my nose.

    For dudes who dig it, nothing but respect, but I'm not paying niche MSRP just to find out what it's about, so this unicorn can join the "don't know, don't care" category of impossibly overhyped and inaccessible dead fragrances such as Gucci Pour Homme '03.
    oh look, I have a signature

    Only tested the Prada in store, but it immediately reminded me of MiP. But honestly, it's not selling for much of a discount right now....so for the money you might as well just get in touch with the seller who has sealed MiPs for sale in the Marketplace.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    If this were a favorite of mine, I wouldn't substitute it with anything.

    Glad to still have a near full bottle of the EDP. Wish I stocked up if I knew, since I paid like 12 bucks for the EDP. Same scenario happened with Halston Amber.. they were everywhere for under 15 bucks, now they're barely anywhere and close to $100.

    As for what's similar.. I always thought it smelled like a mix of Bvlgari Black and Dior Homme. Perhaps you could try layering those 2 or trying both and see if they strike your fancy.

    Not a bad idea since what makes it so appealing is the sweetness with a touch of leather. Thank you
