I've been lurking around this forum for a few months and am a relative newcomer to the wonderful world of scents. Until recently I would only wear scents which were gifted by friends and family. However all this changed when I start travelling regularly to the middle east with my job and discovered the wonderful oudhs, particularly in Dubai.

I will write more later but a particular favourite of mine has been GPH (the 2003 Tom Ford creation) which is now very difficult to find. This was the first scent i came across which I truly fell in love with. I have recently bought M7 Oud Absolu which I find to be similar (but lighter) and Kalemat (from Arabian Oud, which again very similar, but heavier), whilst both of these have the same oudhy notes as GPH I was wondering what other forumers are using to replace GPH.
