Looking to pick up something rose based and can't decide. sniffed them both and love em both. What would you guys pick? what wins in Projection and Sillage?

Noir De Noir to me smells like tuberose and musk. It's that cloying and IMO overtly feminine. Black Aoud is a WALLUP to the head...harsh and sweet at the same time ADD cloying.
If you like Rose Amouage Lyric is a MUCH MUCH better choice and more wearable IMO.

As I do not like Noir de Noir, Black Aoud wins by default. More importantly, as performance appears paramount to you, I think it is the stronger in that category as well.

Absolutamente. This is MAJOR BANG for your buck.

Black Aoud wins in both sillage and longevity. NdN wins in classiness and smell, it also has above average sillage and very good longevity.
There are several other rose based scents that are worth checking out.
MFK Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
Malle Portrait of a Lady
Amouage Lyric Women
Oud Ispahan +1

NdN wins in a landslide for me but in regard to the thread you have to go with Black Oud.

Real question- Why is sillage and projection so important to you? So many people make them the deciding factor. Why?
