    Default Colonia Intensa Oud, Interlude Man or Vetiver Tonka?

    Which would you purchase/recommend and why? Looking to get one of these this week but can't decide between them!

    Vetiver Tonka out of simple preference.

    For oud, I'd suggest Pure Oud or Oud by Mona di Orio.
    for swap/sale:

    Of the six Amouage fragrances I have tried, Interlude Man is by far my least favorite. Colonia Intensia Oud is very unique - not your typical Oud fragrance (which can be a good thing) but it is not my favorite Oud - Not by a long shot. hedonist suggested 2 better ones, and i also think Bond No. 9 New York Oud is very well done, as is M7/M7 Oud Absolu.
    So, i would have to say Vetiver Tonka also...

    It sounds like you are wanting an oud fragrance that has a strong vetiver presence, I don't think you could do any better than Harrod's Limited Edition Oud (Swarovski). Vetiver Tonka has no oud in it as far as I can tell. You can find the Harrod's Ltd. Ed. without the Swarovski crystals for the same price range as other oud fragrances. The Harrod's is deep and oudish with warmth and depth while having an amazing vetiver base note that gives it that green earthiness that I enjoy so much in the darkest vetiver compositions. For both vetiver and oud I recommend the Harrod's. If you are wanting vetiver and sweetness then Vetiver Tonka, also Fat Electrician from Etat Libre d' Orange is also very nice.

    I'm not looking for what you suggest (Vetiver and Oud); these fragrances are completely unrelated but interest me equally for different reasons. Sorry if the original post was unclear.

    Out of those choices, the oud is way better

    I have some of all three in house. I would gladly toss Vetiver Tonka and Interlude Man out the door to keep Colonia Intensa Oud. In fact, I'm in the process of kicking Interlube Man out the door right now. I'll keep my Vetiver Tonka though.

    Why? Because it's so easy to like. No skank in the oud and it's simply the best of the three. It's my SOTD today. It's just a pleasure to wear. It will put a smile on your face.
