    Too many good ones with a very similar direction/complexion. Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, Original Aoud, Red Aoud, Black Aoud, Aoud Damascus, Aoud Leather are a few that a man can easily pull off.

    I haven't used all of them however, Oud Cuir d'Arabie is one i'll never be without.

    fwiw, my GF thinks the Oud frags are very sweet and less "manly" i see her point, but we both love them regardless.

    I've only samples Steam Aoud. I thought it smelled OK, but got some mixed reactions at work. I personally would say pass to that one.

    I'm not fond of many... and I tried A LOT after loving Red Vetyver... so Red Vetyver it is.

    Oud Cuir D'Arabie.
    Greyland is another good one.

    Which of the Montale would you say is similar to Nassomato Duro or Amouage Epic?

    For Duro I would say Original Aoud is definitely the closest.

    I love (and own) Blue Amber and Black Aoud; I like a lot (and I am planning to buy, in that order) Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, White Aoud, Red Vetyver and Red Aoud.

    Royal Aoud is still a mystery to me. For now, I am only sure that I cannot be indifferent, but I am not sure should I love it or hate it. That kind of feeling always frustrates me.

    Beside that, I am pretty inpatient to try Boisé Vanillé.

    Good luck with that. I got some on my jacket last Sunday and I can still smell it today. Such an atrocity! Great longevity though lol

    So many Montale Fragrances to test. I recommend buying at least 6 or so small samples of the popular ones on these boards and testing them yourself. It's not a house that is smart to do much blind buying on in my personal opinion. There are plenty of love or hate scents from this house. I like Blue Amber, Red Vetiver and Black Aoud myself.

    Ummm… it does not sound very promising. If you wanted to make me worry, well... you did it.

    my favorite montale is GOLDEN AOUD. It is wonderful and kind of gets lost with all the other rose & oud choices.

    Wild Aoud is quickly becoming my go to evening going out scent even though I probably look like I have some sort of weird tick because when I wear it I compulsively smell inside my shirt or my wrists every few minutes. Last for freaking ever too. Sprayed this on 25 hours ago before heading to Memphis with the wife for some shopping.

    I've been cleaning around the house today and haven't showered yet. Threw on yesterdays t-shirt and can still smell it very strongly on my neckline even though it has faded from my skin.

    The one I wear most of all is Royal Aoud. I am also fond of Aoud Damascus for its rose presentation. I like Aoud Leather, but was critiqued pretty strongly at work for it.
