Well Scent7 I'm glad we're not trying on shoes today and I'm the salesman.
I like sweet ouds. Kilian Pure Oud is my favorite but I don't get burnt rubber or oiliness or smoke from it. I also really like
Dior Leather Oud which is also a little sweet. Montale Dark Oud is a nice assertive oud which has a little piney quality to it, but
you said you didn't like the Montales. Gao,one of the Xerjoffs is my favorite of them, but it is a bit reminiscent of Montal Dark Oud.
Amouage Epic I think has a little oud in it along with great frankincense and is a great fragrance. For a masculin twist I reach around my back to spray my other wrist. All the Xerjoffs are worth trying.
