    Question what are the Best aoud designer scents for men?

    i know this ingredient is more in the niche fragrances

    today i tried fagrenheit aBsolute and i liked it a lot
    i see this contains aoud

    i have read m7 is another good designer scent with agarwood

    is there out in the market more designer scents with this aoud note?

    which one do y'all think it's the Best?

    I am a fan of oud, it is difficult to pick out one I like best. Just off the top of my head--I like Fahrenheit Absolute. It starts off with a whiff of the original fragrance, and then becomes very rich with the woods. Another I like is Comptoir Sud Pacifique's Aoud de Nuit. This seems to be a bit hard to find, unless I am not looking in the right places. After sampling it, I was able to come close to the same effect by layering Rochas Man with Le Labo Oud 27--in other words, a sweeter, gourmand approach to oud.

    There are countless facets to oud and it takes some exploration and sampling to figure out what one likes for themselves. There aren't all that many designer ouds but plenty of niche houses offer oud fragrances reasonably.

    Some of my favorite ouds:

    Juliette Has a Gun Midnight Oud
    Micallef Aoud Vanille
    Montale Red Aoud
    Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie
    Caron Oud

    YSL M7 is certainly a good perfume, but it's very potent and not particularly versatile - it's very much a 'make a huge statement' perfume.

    M7, no challenge. Though there are much cheaper middle eastern ouds.

    Habit Rouge EdP contains agarwood and it makes a real difference.

    I'm not very familiar with aoud, and what it's supposed to smell like. But Micallef has a fragrance called "Micallef Homme (aoud)" that smells really nice. It's on my eventually buy list.

    The only two designer fragrances with aoud that I know of are

    Fahrenheit Absolute
    M7

    They're both really good, but unfortunately M7 has been reformulated and isn't what it used to be. Niche fragrances have more fragrances that utilize aoud, and you'll find plenty of good suggestions listed above. Just know that the majority of them will be a step up in price.

    I don't know if M7 Fresh has been reformulated as well, but that's another option... Halston Man Amber also has aoud included amongst the notes

    Yeah, Leather Oud and Habit Rouge (EdP), for sure.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    I have to say M7 is not bad for a designer scent - I have the first original in the all brown bottle.
