    My vote goes to Memoir, although it is not an oud fragrance as others have noted.

    NY Oud is more sweet and unisex than Royal Oud, and features more oud as well. Royal Oud is more of a dry, masculine, leather and spice kind of scent where the oud is more of a supportive player. Can't go wrong with either of them, it just depends what you want.
    Current top 10:

    1. L'Artisan Dzing!
    2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
    3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
    4. L'Artisan Al Oudh
    5. Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory
    6. Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond
    7. Andy Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain
    8. Guerlain Derby
    9. Geo F Trumper Eucris
    10. Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe
    Currently wearing: Sculpture Homme by Nikos

    I like Memoir Man and have no problem with it in HK summer but it ain't oud. Tried the Creed and it felt a bit bland to me, haven't tried the other one. Dior Leather Oud and their new one might be worth a look before you pull the trigger?

    I like all of them, but Memoir Man by Amouage is the best of the three fragrances.

    I've not tried Royal Oud, but I think New York Oud would do well in the heat (it has that sexual undercurrent with the animalic honey, and these types of scents tend to really come to life with heat), whereas I don't find Memoir as satisfying in hot weather as I do in cool weather.

    I think Julliette Has Gun's Mid Night Oud is lovely.

    If you want to go more luxurious, Micallef's Royal Oud is my favorite!

    You honestly like Midnight Oud better than NY Oud? I find that NY Oud has a lot more going on, and is more vibrant, lively, fun, sexy.. you name it. Midnight Oud seems so middle of the road in every category that it doesn't really say much of anything. That's also the problem, to a lesser extent, with Micallef's Aoud. Too blended/refined for its own good. It is good, but it's kind of boring, too.

    It's the smoky embers frankincense after the incredible dark green opening is that really defines this one for me, quite stark but beautiful.

    Guys - I am now leaning more towards Amouage's "Memoir" , I had New York Oud sprayed on me the the whole day today, and indeed a little disappointing, did well in the heat but really can't stand the head-ache inducing synthetic oud, it smells so chemical-ish..middle notes are beautiful though, but i guess not enough for the price tag...dry down is ok - i think even Oud Absolu M7 by YSL beats this buy a slim margin....- i shall also visit Arabian Oud tomorrow..

    Harrods Swarovski is the best oud from Bond no.9. So since thats not one of the options...Creed Royal Oud takes it for me.
