I agree, my decant that I have had since this was released is still going strong simply because when I wear it I only have to wear a tiny amount.
I will say this: I love real oud oil and Leather Oud
is very synthetic in its use of oud. I am not saying that this is a bad thing, just that the overall texture, radiance and projection has less to do with the oud (and the skillful blending and/or quality ingredients) and more so to do with the supercharged woody aromachemicals in the base of the fragrance. I am especially sensitive to certain synthetic wood notes - they just overpower the other notes some times. In Leather Oud
, as has already been mentioned several times above, they also have insane longevity - on fabric it can last +24 hours. Compared to the oud in something like...Tribute
by Amouage or Oud Luban
by Aftelier which have this quiet, beast-like presence which are much more close-to-the-skin and also gentler, you are able to really notice the difference.
If you love Leather Oud
but perhaps (later on) you find you're burned out on the sheer strength of it, I highly suggest you explore oud oils which can be animalic, very bold, complex and equally satisfying - depending on price, quality, region etc.
