    Agree that M7 barely has an oud note (I have a vintage bottle). It seems more to evoke the impression of oud, perhaps, with its bitterness and exoticism. But I think of it more as a slightly bitter/sour powdery amber. My own favorite fragrances with oud notes so far are Leather Oud, Dark Aoud, and Habit Rouge edp (in the red leather bottle). I need to give the By Killians another go, and the Acqua di Parma sounds promising.

    Interesting that people say Black Afgano is an oud fragrance. I don't know much about oud, having only tried MFK and Montale's Dark Aoud. I own Black Afgano. Is it really an oud frag?

    i would say:

    royal oud
    m7
    aoud 1
    oud wood

    although all of them are not so much all about ouds, i love how the oud is blended in them

    Inspired by this thread I sprayed some Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa Oud on a strip just earlier, and I have to say, I'm impressed. I get a rose-oud accord from it, which reminds me of a less-brash, much more tolerable (to me) version of Bond No. 9 NY Oud. I want to test it on skin, of course, but it could easily be FBW for me.

    Yes. More like a Kilian oud however. The dry down resembles. Dark Oud as its dry and woody. Again good longevity.

    I have never smelled any oud in Black Afgano but that certainly doesn't prove there isn't some in there. To me it is not an oud fragrance. Other reviewers say they definately smell oud. Previously Nasomatto has been reluctant to say what's in their formulations. Maybe someone else here has better information.

    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.
    Akahina time and time again our tastes are the same, except Bruckner I have not tried that as of yet. New York Oud gets a lot of hate but the drydown is just amazing, it has a very living quality about it.

    I dont think the Oud trend will die ever , once you have one oud fragrance your hooked for life. I started with M7 and I can easily say half of my fragrances are oud based or have some oud in them.

    I sniffed Black Afgano again tonight. I think there is oud in it. All apologies.

    In my opinion - some of the oud fragrances are too strong for me.

    Montales - too much of a chemical scent
    Guerlain - Songe d’un Bois d’Ete may be good, but then again too strong for me
    Mona de Oro Oud - again...too much

    From what I have tried, I like Creed's Royal Oud which is not only oud, but a toned down fragrance - it appeals to my nose.

    I love some of the ouds when they are blended with rose, in particular:
    Guerlain - Rose Nacree du Dessert
    Histoire De Perfume - Rosam (basically only rose and oud.... masculine)

    I have tried a few pure (Thai) oud oils from here (Bangkok) and they are ok, but I prefer them blended into perfumes.
    My exploration continues...

    I'm not really a fan of Oud. Smells like old furniture, and an older generation to me. But in the right blend, I like it.

    These are my favorites:


    Acqua Di Parma Colonia Intensa Oud
    Creed Royal Oud
    Amouage Interlude Man
    Yves St. Laurent M7 / M7 Oud Absolu
    Kilian Rose Oud

    Layer some Agar Aura or Oriscent oud oil with a spray of Creed Royal Oud. I am a fan of pure oud oils, but there are times when I go out in public that wearing them is not practical. I did not think that Royal Oud smelled too much like oud until a friend came over that had no clue what oud was. I had just sprayed myself dowm and happened to be burning some oud based japanese incense and she commented on how good and similar they smelled. Thumbs up from a lady with some good taste in her late 20's. If you have no clue about pure oud, get a high quality Cambodian or Indonesian oud oil and try layering it with one of the suggested fragrances. Do it right, and you fragrance will knock whoever smells it speechless...

    +1. I could easily list this five times as my all-time favourite oud. It's not marketed as an oud scent, but it's definitely there in the dry-down. I like this scent as the oriental, incense-infused masterpiece that it is regardless of the oud note. But a superb scent.
