    I can see what you mean by 'well blended'. I can totally recommend these two:

    - Amouage Epic Man; the oud in those is very toned down and works quite well with the frankincense and myrrh notes
    - AdP Colonia Intensa Oud Concentree may sound like a crazy combination, but the oud really is married well with the general citrus theme of the AdP line. It really reminds me of the Mediterranean and Middle East in some magnificent combination of both.

    Edit: Yikes, forgot the Korres!! It was my first oud officially and I agree it's a great interpretation of what can be done with this note.

    So glad you like the Korres! It's really a lovely, little known oudh... I've been on a bit of a kick in the last year to sample different oudhs from around the world - nothing (or no one) I've ever met has such a range (floral to woody to forest floor to barnyardy). In smelling all the M7-y things, I can't help but assume that it's not real oudh, but some isolated molecules, as the real thing has such an unreproducable range. It's such a blast to dive deeply into a single note... Have fun!

    Although it isn't listed in the notes, I get a subtle oud note in the dry down of an extremely underrated and hard to find fragrance, from the house of Nickel, called Enemy/Ennemi.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Bond Harrods Oud Patchouli - a wonderful blend of oud, davana (think grapes and wine), honey, myrrh, flowers (rose is listed, I pick up some jasmine too), amber, sandalwood and an animalic leather (I definitely get some castoreum in this). It's fairly fruity thanks to the davana (and jasmine), but is grounded by the dark leather, smoky oud and dry sandalwood. The dry down has a lot in common with Opus VI, but is better imo due to the leather and animalic facets. A very rich and regal, opulent scent. In a review someone said "You will smell like the three wise men" and it's true.

    "Oud pour Lui", by Alyssa Ashley, a great scent . Why nobody count it in?

    Korres is a great value option. Decent longevity and very smooth.

    By far my favortie oud is By Kilian Pure Oud. It is subtle. It is pretty. And it has lots of character.

    My sample of the day today is Fireside Intense by Sonoma Scent Studio. It immediately brought me to this thread. A very well blended oud note, and an amazing scent. Think Tobacco Vanille meets Tuscan Leather, but not a huge projection beast like those 2; and an added smooth oud note. The overall effect: Smooth leather, sweet vanilla, silky oud, and burning woods. Very camphorous. good stuff here.

    Also Heeley Agarwoud is one of my favorites, and worth a look.

    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
