    Default Creed Aventus and Tom Ford Oud Wood

    I just received samples of both of these in the mail and I have to say these are now #1 and #2 in my arsenal. Are any of the other Tom Fords on the same level? Why do they have to be sooooooo expensive? Oud Wood does project that much but I could still smell it after a shower. It's oil-based as well, correct?

    Because of their positions as luxury products. You can find them cheaper it you look around.

    Congrats. I think most of the Creeds are wonderful, and very worth the $150-$200/4oz price tag you can find them for online.

    The Tom Fords are also outstanding, but, I would argue, more of them (not all) are much more love or hate type fragrances. I personally love and own Tobacco Vanille and Italian Cypress. If I wasn't an addict, those two could get me through any situation, all year round.

    Tom Ford Oud Wood in the brown bottle and not the grey bottle IMHO. Supply and demand. If you got the Oud Wood, that's great because it seems the most versatile. Don't care for the summer ones as they lack in performance but happy for those who do enjoy them.

    If you love Oud Wood, go after Versace Pour Homme Oud Noir.
    Its available on Amazon now for very cheap by comparison. Similar stealth performance.
