    Wow not sure which ones are actually in the colognes that I like. Tom Ford oud has a nice note..... well I should just say I prefer the non manure smelling ones. Some have a barnyard smell that I associate with growing up around Cattle when I was young on ranches.

    Dior Leather oud has just a hint of that and I do like that one.

    I don't know where to apply that in any oud perfumes I know. They seem to have a typical synthetic oud note (Montale, Tom Ford, M7) that is not similar to any of those oud types. Maybe closest to Cambodian? By Kilian on the other hand has a "Rubbery" oud.

    But as far as PURE oils, I'd rank them as follows:

    1-Hindi
    2-Borneo
    3-Cambodian
    4-Chinese

    Have not tried any Malaysian, though Borneo is technically Malaysian(or was it Indonesian?) as far as I know.

    Borneo pure oud oil is the most user friendly one that I have tried . Tom Fords Oud Wood is a synthetic take on a Borneo oil without the depth.

    There probably isn't much real oud in the ones I like anyway, Creed Royal Oud, Tom Ford Oud Wood and Monica di Orio Oud--but I like them anyway.
