Black Aoud without a doubt. The seminal aoud fragrance.
How to pick just one?! Montale is my favorite house and for me it would have to be a tie between Black and Red Aoud. Not to say I don't adore others, like Aoud Velvet, Queen Aoud Roses and Attar. I guess the Black and Red for me, are the most easily layered to make wonderful new smells. Couldn't honestly pick betweein the two lest a gun was held to my head, then it would be the luck of the draw.
What other people think of you is none of your business, listen to mother, mind your own business
Yup I voted Black Aoud, too
Oud Cuir d'Arabie
I only have one Montale, Black Aoud, so I couldn't really vote. But I LOVE the Montale I have so I had to post.
I voted BA also. I love this house. I've tried everything from this list but for 3-4 new ones. Black Aoud is the best imho. However, I should say that Aoud Roses Petals, utterly feminine to my nose, is absolutely beautiful too but that's mostly about the roses.
I also own and love Aoud Limes (includes saffron) and Royal Aoud (milder oud and with kumquat and citrus fruit).
I find White Aoud also very pleasant but again (with vanilla), more feminine. However, I get a heavy musky/indolic note from it that changed my mind about buying it. Another nice one is Sliver Aoud (aka Silver) that is lighter on oud and with a more conventional pyramid but again with the indolic note. Overall, much milder than the rest of Montales.
These are some of my favorites but if one MUST choose one, BA is it.

I like White Aoud .
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
I'd like see how their new releases would do in this poll.
I have tried about half from the list. Black Aoud's glowing reputation is well-deserved. Another favorite of mine is Aoud Lime but it's not in the list.
Btw it's Sliver Aoud, NOT Silver Aoud. Many have made this mistake.
I'd vote for Aoud lime too if it were on the list. But Aoud Cuir d'arabie and Black aoud are great contenders.
Black and Red Aoud for me
For me Dark is amazing and Black is a close second.
any more votes?
I love White Aoud and Black Aoud.
Black Oud is the BEST!!
