    Default What is similar to Tom Ford Oud Wood?

    I tried it today and absolutely loved it, however I canīt justify spending that much, so Iīm looking for alternatives. What is similar? I also tried Ulrich Langīs "Nightscape" which is a bit similar, but what could get me closer? Normally, I hate Oud and didnīt even want to try Oud Wood, but then did and was surprised at how good it was. Other frags that had a more prominent Oud note in it were disgusting to me, so I figured there canīt be much Oud in Oud Wood.
    I loved how warm and woody Oud Wood is...

    Thanks for your input!

    Yes I find this too. M7 is the amped up version.
    I think Tom Ford took the finger print of M7 with him when he left YSL to strike out on his own

    interesting suggestion. The name Tom is indeed because of Tom Ford:
    Here's the description of Tom oudh from zahras perfumes:

    Surratis trendy Oudh Oil with the same, but stronger fragrance than Tom Ford Oudh Wood.

    In general, I second the idea of cheap oils from Arabic houses, many of which don't use expensive real oud, but synthetics (another such house would be Swiss Arabian, but I haven't tried many of their perfumes so I wouldn't know which one is close).

    Check out Zahras.com and look under the Suratti catalogue. They have fragrances that are similar to Montale Black oud, Tom ford Oud wood, and Tom for Tuscan Leather. They are perfume oils, not sprays, but others have said they are incredibly similar to the original fragrances.

    both are very very good. Oud wood is the copy, interpretation of M7, made with better ingredients...
    M7 is made of aromachemicals, and its ambery ....I like it, but I can not wear it because it irritates me....
    Oud wood doesnt irritate me. It smells natural, warm..

    1. There are plenty of 4ml samples of TF Oud Wood to be had. Search and obtain.
    2. ++Surrati's Oudh Tom. Perhaps you'll like it more. Also try their Oudy Woody.
    3. I like M7 (vintage) just fine but #2 above is the dead ringer.

    I think you all like the saffron in Oud Wood. Omitted from m7 for sure.
