    Hi and welcome to basenotes!

    Leather Oud is my choice as the oud in this smells like smoky burning wood and the leather is more of a light supple saddle leather. Mixed together with the honey and civet gives you a smoky leathery dark sweet musky scent. The projection and longevity is excellent on me.

    Agar musk is good as well though the longevity was average at about 5 to 6 hours.

    Agar Musk by Ramon Monegal would be suitable with your name perfectly

    Armani Privé Oud Royal or Mona di Orio Oud would be great as well

    Ormonde Man would most likely by my first choice for the scent, although I also love Pure Oud and it has much better projection and longevity.

    Another vote for Leather Aoud. Although New York Oud is a close second for me. New York Oud lasts and lasts and is more about rose. Nes York Oud can be purchased at a reasonable price if you look around. Message me if interesed. It was my scent of the day yesterday.

    When you say Bond no 9 Oud, do you mean Harrods Oud?

    If so, that's the one I'd pick for sure.

    The interpretations of oud vary quite greatly across the fragrances you listed. What one finds pleasant may not be another's cup of tea. Have you sampled any of them? Or are you just looking to see which fragrances are popular among BNers?

    BUT if I were to pick from your list, it's probably a toss up between Ormonde Man and Ramon Monegal Agar Musk.

    Not sure which I would choose from that list. However, I can tell you that NY Oud would never be in my "to buy" list.

    Thank you gentlemen for your suggestions. So now without hesitation I am going to stop by Selfridges this afternoon and purchase a full bottle of Leather Oud (quality stuff). I really love the smell of the smoky Oud on it which Jack Hanter has nicely described.

    My next to buy will be either Agar Musk or Bond No 9 Oud (BTW: apart from the Swarovski bottle is there a different between Bond No 9 Oud Bond signature scent and Bond No 9 Harrods Oud?).
