    Default Royal Oud by Creed vs New York Oud by Bond vs Memoir Man by Amouga - Help Me Pick 1 !!

    Guys,
    Please be kind enough to guide me to pick 1 - I am busting my wallet of late, and the smart thing
    is to own 1 Oud based fragrance I've shortlisted this three - but can't seem to decide between these,
    as i LOVE EM ALL! Your contribution is very much valued.

    I live in a humid country which has a Tropical climate.

    I normally do not like Creed´s scents.
    Milesimé Imperial is my preferred.
    GIT, so, so.
    BUT bear in mind :
    Their OUD is just crème de la crème and IMHO one of the best in the market.
    I received many compliments .
    Enjoy it, all the way.

    Of the three NY Oud, Memoir man is not really oud centric IMO. These are all heavy in a humid climate.

    my choice between the three would be Memoir, but i don't think Memoir has oud in it.

    I understand - i did try Memoir Man and NY Oud - they do fairly well than say, M7 Oud by YSL.
    I do not wish to really get into full bodied Oud, as it can become always unworkable in such climates.

    New York Oud by a landslide, Royal Oud is too synthetic for my liking , to me its quite identical to M7 fresh, so its just better to get that at a fraction of the cost.

    I am really leaning towards New York Oud right now but the price is just so crazy

    I hate it when people don't answer the question the thread proposes! but . . .

    I like Memoir Man best, but there is no oud in it. If you are after an incense and spice heavy scent you might try Jubilation XXV - very nice.
    NY Oud is more roses and saffron + synthetic oud - not quite as good as Midnight Oud by Juliette Has A Gun, but both are good.
    Royal Oud is more about spice, leather, and amber than it is oud. If you like this tone of scent best, try Spicebomb - I think it is superior to Royal Oud for this kind of spice leather scent.

    New York Oud is a better oud fragrance. Royal Oud is my favorite fragrance among the 3. Memoir Man is a great incense fragrance.

    Depends on what you want, you want more oud go with NYO, you want a great overall fragrance go with Royal Oud. You want more subtley and a tad mysteriousness, go with Memoir.
    Current top 5:
    1. MDCI Chypre Palatin
    2. Guerlain Arsene Lupin (Dandy)

    3. Roja Dove Enigma Parfum Pour Homme
    4. Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait
    5. Guerlain Heritage (any formulation)

    Among the ones you mentioned I definitely prefer Memoir Man which contains no oud though...Just out of my curiosity, why your choice is restriced to those three? If you want an oud-based fragrance, there are much better options out there...

    Incidentally I own all 3. I like Memoir best but I don't think it should be counted as an oud frag as mentioned above.
    As for your choice, I think Royal Oud...mainly because you live in a humid country. Both New York Oud and Memoir would be far too heavy IMO

    Alfarom - because out of most i sampled, i seem to like these 3; i'd buy all three for the heck of it but that would border insanity, The Middle Eastern guy at the Amouage Boutique says, Memoir is some what an Oud-Incense based fragrance done for the 21st century, i took his word for it - but it doesnt bother me, as i loved the smell.

    There might be others out there, but i am unwilling to blind-buy anything i've not tested before.

    This is the truth of the matter. If you really want something good with oud, or even something that has oud in it at all, you should expand your search. There are much better choices of fragrances with oud.

    Just to put my money where my mouth is. Or rather YOUR money where my mouth is:

    Montale Dark Oud
    Dior Leather Oud
    By Kilian Pure Oud (my personal favorite)
    Amouage Epic
    Kurkdjian Oud
    Roja Dove Aoud
    Xerjoff Gao
    M7
    Bond No. 9 Harrods Oud

    These are all better oud centered fragrances than the three you've mentioned. Memoir Man whatever
    one may think of it doesn't really qualify as an oud centered scent. Listed below are three other Oud centered
    fragances that have many partisans, myself not included, but all are first rate quality:

    Montale Black Oud
    Le Labo Oud 27
    Mona di Orio Oud

    Dear Dernier,
    Thank you for your wonderful list, unfortunately i live in a climate that doesn't facilitate the usage of most oud based
    fragrance, I found the Bond No.9 Harrods Oud, a bit heavy, Kurkidjian's Oud is not my cup of tea, i shortlisted these because
    i liked all three, but going bonkers on which one would fit a long term purchase!

    if you like Bond's New York Oud have you tried Midnight Oud by Juliette has a gun? I think it's way better than the Bond's if you're into the Oud/Rose scents
