I will admit that I liked this one the first day I smelled it. I even wore it a second day and liked it. The oud was a bit sharp for me after that, but I agree that it's a nice one.
I think if it was cheaper, I would have been tempted to get a bottle when it came out. Since then, I found some other Bonds that I like better, so it sort of dropped off my radar.
I do think it would smell very nice on a woman, too. Unfortunately, my wife didn't like it - she's not a fan of oud on herself.
