    I like both, but NY Oud more. It's the only Bond fragrance that I would consider purchasing. Reminds me of TF Oud Wood.

    Black Aoud is nice too, just a bit too Middle Eastern for me. My wife also said it smells a bit feminine.

    I can't choose...Black Aoud is delicious and a monster projector and with monster silage. New York Oud was my first Bond and is incredible, perhaps more complex. I wear both at different times and for different reasons. NY Oud is a clubbing scent for me, Black Aoud more of a rose scent.

    God, if I had to choose a favorite it would be 99 points for Black Aoud and 100 points for NY Oud. A very close call indeed for me. A virtual toss up but today NY Oud wins. Tomorrow perhaps a different story.

    New York Oud. It doesn't have that awful musky drydown that BA has.

    Akahina, you hit it right on the nail.... I like Black Aoud strong and bold in your face opening, but NY Oud has a better dry down for me... I can't decide which one I like more.... at the moment I think NY Oud has the edge by about a point, but Black Aoud is pretty darn good too.... it's a toss up....flip a coin....

    Don't find them all that similar, for me Black Aoud is better and bolder, NY Oud is maybe easier to wear.

    NY Oud. It's far more 'colorful', vibrant, and full of life. A great scent that is surprisingly multifaceted, despite initially seeming simple and linear.

    Can one get by with just one spritz of NY Oud? I have a tester vial and I'd like to stretch it out.

    Even though I want to like Black Oud, I think NY Oud is better. However, black oud does rose a very deep rose. I want to revisit black oud one day.

    How come no one has mentioned that NY Oud is MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE?

    I have both, LOVE both, in terms of complexity NY oud wins, but in terms of versatility and sillage , Black Aoud wins. Both are very long lasting

    Montale Black Aoud by a long shot. Most Bn9 frags have an undertone of melted plastic and artificial grape (I know, it's hard to describe and many people don't smell it)

    New York Ouf by far. It simply smells better and is more complex. Black Oud is a bit boring and has a horrible drydown and it's sillage is far too brash and over pronounced.
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

    New York Oud for me. More dynamic and alive. It also has a tinge less of the rose note than BA That makes it easier for me to wear.

    No contest, Black Aoud. I found NY Oud harsh and synthetic like most of the Bond line.

    Montale Black Aoud is nice, but NY Oud is amazing. Projects like a beast and lasts forever (I find all the New York Notes series fragrances from Bond No 9 to have a similar vibe and all to be very long lasting).
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    I never tried Black Aoud, but NY Oud is an abomination.

    NY Oud is one of my most hated fragrance of all time, second only to Ungaro III

    I like NY Oud more than Black Aoud, but just gotta be careful with the sprayer. Last weekend, I put on three sprays of NY Oud, but all on my neck. I nearly suffocated by the scent cloud. Man oh man was that strong.
