    Default Kilian Rose Oud vs Bond no 9 New York Oud

    So I decided to do a side-by-side comparison of the two frags today. I'm on the fence as to which is better, but I'm leaning towards NYO. I asked my cousin to see what a civilian thinks (he's not into frags nearly as much as I am), and he said that the two are very similar, but that RO is just a more sharper version of NYO.

    For those that have tried both, which do you prefer?

    Rose Oud is soft, smooth, balmy, elegant, classy.

    NYO is synthetic, edgy, with an underlying dirty-musk note which turns me off.

    I don't think they are similar at all.

    On that note, my vote goes to Rose Oud.

    New York Oud by a mile, Killian Rose Oud, is too generic. New York Oud, is so complex and long lasting.

    Nuff said!!! Rose Oud is has great longevity...good sillage and is more refined. If you want something loud get the bond...otherwise Kilian is killing it.

    Kilian Rose Oud for me. New York Oud to me is too plummy and not oud-y enough for a fragrance that claims to contain oud. And I prefer the rose and oud in the Kilian to the Bond, although the saffron and plum are certainly interesting and make New York Oud worth trying.

    Yes, by light years - NY Oud isn't even in the same league.
