    Default Incense Oud vs Jubilation XXV: Which do you enjoy more?

    I'm really spit between these two at the moment. There are both different in there composition and nuances despite their common note. IO is more of a rose/incense with oud while JXXV is more fruit and incense. Most of us know this but at the end of the day, which is more of a pleasure to wear for you? I never got to do a full wearing of IO as my sample had a fault sealed and leaked out in my sample bag. I can still smell it though. What are your thoughts?

    Honestly after reading all great reviews of Jub XXV, I thought I would love it BUT I did not like it, there is a note in there I just detest. Killian Incense Oud in my opinion is far superior in terms of quality and is a great incense fragrance.

    Both are great and worth owning, I slightly prefer Jubiliation but you have to be in a very opulent mood.

    Agree with this.

    I'm thinking JXXV is more of a clean, pure incense. The rose and oud in IO, adds a bit of dark texture and mystery. Both are appealing for sure. Both are definitely worth owning. A tough decision, this is.

    I've only tried Jubilation XXV out of the two, but I love it to death. It's actually my SOTD, as I felt like being opulent during such a windy and crappy day going to classes. I agree that it's sort of an occasional scent, but when I do wear it, I LOVE it.

    I have a couple drops left of my JXXV sample. I put one on my hand and no doubt, its the best straight up incense out there. Opulent due to the construction and quality. I find this one meditative and introspective. When I need to be academic, I love wearing this or kyoto.

    I Prefer Jubilation XXV! But whenever my girlfriend wears Incense Oud, I drool a little. Incense Oud is a unisex fragrance but it's absolutely amazing on a confident woman.

    Incense Oud. I've grown sensitive to the immortelle in JXXV and find it a more difficult wear.
