    I have considered/considering these same three fragrances for purchase, and given that the warmer seasons of the year are upon us, I purchased Sycomore first.

    Coromandel and the great patchouli. Though the most versatile is most likely Sycamore.

    Sycamore because I think you would be able to wear it more often.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Black Aoud is too powerful for summer. Go with Sycomore.

    2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain

    I don't think I'd buy any of them, but Coromandel is nice enough. I was interested in Black Aoud until smelling it on my skin. Horrible stuff.

    I voted black aoud because it's beautiful, but I changed my mind to sycomore. More wearable, definitely good from a collection stand point too.

    I have encre noire, but I agree on Sycomore as a more easy to wear fragrance...

    +1 ... However, inasmuch as you have at least three, other vetivers, I would go with ↓↓↓↓↓

    Coromandel by Chanel - One is initially treated to wafts of peppery spiciness commingling with a somewhat camphoraceous, yet dirty, patchouli. This intriguing and inviting melange floats on an ephemeral cloud of salty fruitiness and spices of cloves and ginger. Aromatic woods, with hints of lemon verbena and minty laurel, serve as a backdrop to this stirring opening. Transitioning to the middle, the woods fade and wisps of florals, with violet-like iris, clover-like rose and sweetly seductive jasmine, interface with the musty earthiness of patchouli, which has taken on a clay-like facet. A nascent, vanillic amber sprinkles the melange, giving the florals a creamy texture, and coaxes a cocoa aspect of patchouli to rise up. Segueing to the robust base, balsamic woods, hay-like beeswax, herbaceous cinnamon, all intermingle and interplay with the vanillic and almond sweetness of benzoin. The heavy, resinous, sweetish amber has come into full bloom. A restrained smoky frankincense reels about. And, a chocolate-like tone presents from the interweaving of coumarin and patchouli. A delightsome drydown ensues. This high-quality composition is definitely unisex, if not leaning masculine, and has average projection and longevity. Its elegance will shine in the fall and winter.

    Voted for Coromandel. Beautiful stuff, it kills Sycomore in longevity and projection albeit not nearly as versatile.

    I voted for Sycomore. Coromandel could also work very nicely in warmer months, but it's not as versatile. Wait for cool weather for Black Aoud.

    Personal preference is Sycomore

    I voted Sycomore because the summer is coming, and I use a lot of it in the season - it just seems perfect then. But I love Black aoud too. Perhaps when the summer is over...

    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Epic Man
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Noir de Noir
    5. Bois d'Argent

    They're all very good in their respective genre.
    Rose (and oud I guess), vetiver and patchouli.

    Assess which one you need/like the most and go with it.

    for swap/sale:

    Sycomore, though not for me, makes the most sense for this time of year. Black Aoud is beautiful, but as thick as a woolen sweater.

    Love Black Aoud, but I would wait until Fall to buy it

    While I'll suggest sycomore also, I think Blake aoud would work fine in the summer. It is strong though. If you end up going with montale you might as well order direct from them and get a free 20ml with a 100ml purchase or pick 2 50ml. Really they're all wonderful.
