Depends on the Oud I suppose. Montale delivers a pretty sharp medicinal synthetic oud (though don't let this throw you, as it's good stuff), and I would say try out Dark Aoud
for something spicy or Black Aoud
if you're after a darker rose scent. It's in some designer offerings such as M7
, Noir de Noir
, and Oud Wood
though not as prominent. Le Labo's Oud 27
delivers a more realistic (though some would say stinky) sort of oud, as does Xerjoff's Zafar
(along with other variations in their Oud Stars collection).
You could also always go for the straight up real oud, but that stuff costs $$$.
