    I have a sample of DLO and somewhere it very close to Harrods Oud despite the Harrods Oud is more barnyardish and earthy

    I really enjoy amber oud by kilian. It is sooooo smooth! I also enjoy some of the Tom Ford Private blends.

    The best Oud for me though is Royal Oud by creed. I think that due to the climate here in Miami it's the only one that i feel like i can get away with year round. I've tried some other oud's and felt that they get too cloying in the heat and humidity down here. Royal oud however has the versatility to make it my winner.

    Tom Ford makes a splendid Oud fragrance. But all in all, I am taken away by Royal Oud from Creed.

    I love Creed Royal Oud as an overall fragrance, but i don't get much oud from it. Thus, I voted for Harrod's Oud.

    Then I would say BY Killian Pure Oud which is not on the list.

    My two favorite Ouds! Of the two, Royal Oud is by far the easier to wear, I agree. Also, I don't know which M7 I have a sample of, from the TPC. Dunno if there is a new reformulation, or if they send the "vintage." Whatever it is, it would be on my list.

    Oud 27 from Le Labo is CRAZY, a love-it-or-hate-it fragrance, but I'm on the "love it" side.

    Also, the Oud fragrances from By Kilian are good too--Amber Oud, Pure Oud, Rose Oud, Incense Oud.

    And the one from L'Artisan's good too!

    If "Another" wasn't an option, I would have voted Creed's or Tom Ford's--I like these also.

    I appreciate Mona di Orio creation, but I can't imagine men wearing this scent.
    Too much sweet notes which smashed the oud core note.


    Harrods Oud is good, but which note makes it earthy?

    Roja Dove oud is amazing, event at this price tag.

    But I am expecting oud from ... Xerjoff.
    Given the raw materials quality they used in all their frags,
    I m sure that there will be real oud oil - the only question is nose behind oud stars collection.
    But Xerjoff Oud definitely will be event of 2012 in oud world

    Is the Harrods Oud comparable to New York Oud? Also, how long Harrods Oud lasts on your skin?
    I am feel it maximum 5 hours on the skin and 8 hours on wool or cashmere
