    I enjoy both, and although I will wear arabian wood around the house, I am not comfortable enough to wear it in public as I feel it is extremley feminine. Overall, I enjoy oud wood more, I feel it lasts longer and projects longer, plus I feel relaxed when I wear it.

    Easily Oud Wood. Arabian Wood smells like floral bath beads to me. Definitely feminine in my opinion.

    Oud Wood. However, if I had known the longevity was so weak (maybe an hour at best) I wouldn't have bought a bottle.

    Oud Wood, although I will give Arabian another test when I get the chance.

    Oud Wood is nice but no better than similar fragrances for a quarter of the price (or more durable Harrod´s Oud, Montales, or Recent Xerjoff Oud releases for a similar price). I enjoy the scent but agree that the lasting power is horrendous and, had I known, I would have skipped on this overpriced and now redundant release.

    I prefer Arabian Wood, though it smells a whole lot like vintage Cabochard extrait which is cheaper and probably has better ingredients.

    Depends on the occasion, Oud Wood is better for going out, while Arabian Wood is a good daytime/office scent.

    I love Arabian Wood. Its the first private blend I bought and I have quite a few now and its still my favorite.

    I cant stand Oud Wood! Im dying to know what the attraction is. I had a bottle and I just couldnt handle it, so I sold it. The smell of it, though not horrid, was the most weird thing Id ever come across and I really didnt like it, but I know its very popular, so must be my nose then thats wrong!
