    Brueckner Aoud 1 and Creed Royal Oud are among my very favorite fragrances, but I didn't include those, since I don't consider they are "Oud" fragrances, even if they do have some oud in them.

    Portrait of a Lady
    M7
    Harrod's Oud
    Black Aoud

    I honestly can't even think of a 5th I really like (not much of an oud person). I will say that Montale's moon aoud is pretty weird and just bad in my opinion. I don't like Dark Aoud or Royal Aoud. Maybe L'Artisan's Al Oudh? I remember Wild Aoud was good too.

    I bought that when it first came out in 2004, I didn't know anything about notes. It just smelled really good so I bought it. I got soo many compliments, I was so young and I wore it at my job Home Depot. Fast forward to 2009 I join basenotes everybody on this basenotes website was talking about it and this note called oud. Keep fast forwarding to 2013 it's probably the most used note in perfume nowadays. Thank you Tom Ford!!!! I love M7 it's more than just a Oud fragrance to me.

    Best oud / aoud will not be in the parfum / colognes - its the attars and pure oils.

    Coming to parfums, my top 5 oud based are:

    1 - Amouage's (again based on individual choice - more than 1 good oud parfum from this house)
    2 - Montale's (based on individual choice - more than 1 good oud parfum from this house)
    3 - Tied between - Tom Ford Oud, Nejma Oud One & Mona di Orio Oud
    4 - Tied between - By Kilian's & Byredo's (both have more than 1 good oud based IMO)
    5 - Tied - YSL M7 Absolu & Creed's Royal Oud
    Currently wearing: Cologne du 68 by Guerlain

    Oud may be my favorite note. It seems to do something for me. The best is oud oil of course...which I have smelled several of but have yet to buy in any quantity. Most all western fragrances are artificial. But I even like that...so there!

    M7 is on most people's list as the first, but quite honestly I don't get much oud from it. Still love it though.

    So in no particular order here are my favorites.

    Dior Leather Oud - leather and oud wood smoke
    Montale Black Aoud - rose with oud, a classic combo
    Montale Dark Aoud - oud and sandalwood
    Bond No.9 New York Oud - rose and oud again. Love this stuff!
    Parfümerie Brückner Aoud 1- for lack of a better description sort of like Aventus (pineapple) with oud

    Honorable mention: Black Afgano.
    Some Favorites
    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Masque Milano Russian Tea


    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    OUD IS
    one of my favorite notes:

    1. By Kilian Pure Oud......my favorite oud by far, so pretty.
    2. Montale Dark Aoud.....exceptional take, uplifting, a tour de force.
    3. Dior Leather Oud......I get cravings for this unique take with leather.
    4. Amouage Epic Man........ I think of it as a frankincense fragrance first.
    5. Tom Ford Santal Blush......may not quality as oud based but I lahuv what I believe to be oud in this.
    6.Xerjoff Gao........too similar to, but inferior to Montale Dark.... maybe?

    The best I've come across is the Acqua di Parma one, where the oud is beautifully integrated and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

    I guess my love for oud is waning since I've sold off a bunch of my oud-centric fragrances.

    My top five would be:

    1. Leather Oud
    2. Mona di Orio - Oud
    3. Histoires de Parfums - Ambrarem
    4. MFK - Oud
    5. Amouage - Epic Man

    As of right now,

    Creed Royal Oud
    By Killian Rose Oud
    M. Micallef's Homme (Aoud)

    I would like to try Montale's black oud tho, especially after trying and liking Rose Oud. Apparently, oud & rose work will together!
