    I'm gonna sidestep your preferences just a touch - try Roma Uomo, it should work well in NoLa.
    + track down some samples of the Harrods Amouage exclusives: Ltd Edition Man + Green Salalah (there's your oud)

    Attar is a good choice.

    Perfume Generale L'Ombre Fauve. As long as you like an Amber/Musk/Fur experience. What an interesting scent and very wearable.

    Amouage Memoir Man if you like absinthe, incense, and/or dark fragrances. I know a full bottle costs more than what you want to spend but you could easily get away with buying a few official samples. They are 2ml for $6 at Parfums Raffy (the cheapest place for the official samples in atomizers), and I've gotten about 15 wearings out of just one sample.. so they go a long way. This is probably the only house where you can find official samples for the same cost per mL as a bottle.

    If you haven't tried it yet, Amouage Reflection Man is one of my other favorite scents that absolutely blew me away when I first smelled it. It's clean, soft, and rather floral and yet also bright, opulent and extravagant. It's a bit different htan what you normally like but it does have a really nice himalayan cedar in the drydown, along with a creamy sandalwood and a good dose of cold, camphorous patchouli (kind of like Ulrich Lang's Nightscape).

    A great aoud/rose combo that you need to sniff if you haven't yet is M. Micallef's Aoud Homme. An almost sulfuric oud with rose, cinnamon, spices and honey.

    Also, I think Al Oudh is absolutely fantastic. It's opulent and velvety smooth, but yet very very dark smelling to me. Like black velvet, oud smoke, and rose petals. Delightful!
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    Nick, go old school: Aramis. You'll save some $ and you can get the soap-on-the-rope or the shave cream (scented) with the spare change.

    Congratulations!
    I don't see Montale's Black Aoud in your wardrobe (or that you owned it). I recommend that.
    I also don't see any vetivers there. I recommend Villoresi's.
    Perhaps something from MPG: Route du Vetiver or Parfum D'Habit or Iris Bleu Gris.
    Whatever you get, enjoy!
