    Default Rank your favorite rose oud fragrance

    Mine are:
    Bond no. 9 New York Oud
    Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    by Kilian Rose Oud
    Dior Oud Ispahan
    Montale Black Aoud

    I would say that Oud Ispahan and Black Aoud are very similar to my nose. I just like Oud Ispahan slightly more.

    Rose Nacrée du Desert by Guerlain followed by Rose Oud By Kilian

    As an aside, Portrait of a Lady mentioned by many others does contain just a bit of oud and would easily top my list if I really considered it a rose and oud scent, but oud is really not its focus at all, IMO.

    Kilian Rose Oud is probably my favorite, but it's not exactly an oud, or for that matter, my favorite rose. But it's really good, and contains both oud and rose, so I guess it fits here!

    It definitely is. Actually, the Arabian-themed Armani Privés are all pretty nice.

    Rose Nacree (Guerlain) is pretty impressive, probably the best so far, but can't leave out Black Aoud as it was the first one I tried and bought a while back.

    Default Re: Rank your favorite rose oud fragrance

    Love this thread! My top favorite rose/oud for the past couple of years has been Amouage Ayoon Al Maha Attar. My other high-rotation faves are: Amouage Homage Attar, By Killian Rose Oud, The People of the Labyrinths A*Maze, Montale Aoud Damascus, and Micallef Rose Aoud.

    Malle Portrait of a Lady and Guerlain Rose Nacree are both breathtaking, but they don't read as "rose/oud" to me - there's too much other stuff going on in there.

    Default Re: Rank your favorite rose oud fragrance

    While busier than a normal rose/oud fragrance, I'll agree and say Portrait of a Lady has those 2 notes in it, and would make the top of my list.

    So from what I've tried:

    Portrait of a Lady - amazing
    Bond New York Oud - very good
    Noir de Noir - a standout among TF
    Black Aoud - other than strength, it did not impress me

    I wouldn't call this a rose oud if I remeber correctly, rather citrus aromatic with a rosy tough, isn't it?!

    My favorite is Kilian Rose Oud, followed closely by TF Noir de Noir and Bond NY Oud. Then again, I haven't sampled many rose oud fragrances (have yet to try any Montale ouds).

    If FM Portrait of a Lady is considered a rose oud, then I'll add that to the above. I don't think of it as a rose oud, personally...

    King Fahad oil blend by Arabian Oud to my nose is the most harmonious and seamless combination of rose and oud, with musk and patchouli providing a perfect backdrop for the duo. Can't really see this theme executed better.

    I am loving By Kilian Rose Oud right now. Next is Noir de Noir and then C&S Dark Rose.

    I really want to try Portrait of a Lady!

    Not my favorite, but definitely a fragrance that wouldn't be the same without rose. ( Most badass rose fragrance ever, possibly in a dead heat with Tauer's Orris ).

    Definitely, Suga. Expecially for those who have a special fetish for animalic/rose combos...Not to mention that this was one of the first fragrances to play the rose-oud accord in the western market...In concept, this is Leather Oud for people who love rose.
