    Default Immediate assistance! Oud 27 - Alternative

    So our friends came over and I was wearing Oud 27. They tried it out on their wrists and was all like "Woah. I'm not sure about this." after about an hour they returned to their wrists and suddenly loved it.

    Today, his wife wants to purchase Oud 27 for him for Valentines day, and they have very little scent exposure. His only scent right now is one of the scents by Varvatos.

    I would like to be able to show her some alternative recommendations before she settles on Oud 27.

    Any ideas?
    Oud 27 makes me sex.

    Oud 27 is great, but very peculiar - it's a superdirty musk that settles into an elegant woody later.

    Equally expensive, another dark musk, but more elegant and socially acceptable, is Kurkdjian's Absolue pour le soir. For the dirt part only, Muscs Koublai Khan by Serge Lutens. Something between dirty and clean, Musc Samarkand by Les Nereides. And for a fun, musky-leathery vanillic concoction, Dzing! by l'Artisan Parfumeur.

    For oud based compositions in the same vain of Oud27 you could suggest her Leather Oud, ByKilians Pure Oud, Montale's Oud Cuir D'Arabie and Bond N.9 Swarowski Ltd Edt.

    I can't recall any perfume smelling similar to Oud 27.

    I concur with Cacio's suggestions.

    I agree that Dior Leather Oud is worth a try. It emphasizes a burning agarwood note, rather than the pure resin, which Oud 27 replicates. Leather Oud also has a wonderful warm leather accord and a strong, almost naughty honey/civet base that I personally find a little scary but others smelling it on me apparently don't mind at all.
