Was out doing some smelling at great niche fragrance shop in Scottsdale, looking for an oud that struck me. Was thinking at first, maybe one of the Montale Aouds (I like black and red aoud the best out of the line). I ran across Mona Di Orio Oud; after about 5 minutes on my skin the osmanthus and oud just leaps out at you. I looked around and tested many others but always went back to my hand to check the progression from almost a woodsy hay oud to a ambery gentlemens oud. Long story short, ended up with a beautiful oud and one the best box/bottle presentations i've seen.
