    Pure oud almost made me throw up on the fragrance woman.

    The best are Incense oud, Musk oud, Straight to heaven, Back to black, Cruel Intentions but this one is a little to sweet for me but still a great scent.

    I've only tried Love Don't be shy, Back to black, pure oud, and rose oud. I really really like rose oud. When I run out of my decant, I could see myself buying a full bottle.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I really appreciate that my first experience with real oud was chaperoned by an oud expert. He really set up the experience carefully, so that we knew what to expect. That enabled me to have a truly enjoyable experience, and to get an idea of which kinds of ouds I liked, and which kinds I didn't. I liked the really sharp and chypre-like ones, as opposed to the more complex "barnyard" varieties. But they're all pretty neat stuff. It's just an order of magnitude more fragrance than one gets in Western formulations.

    My favorite By Kilian has to be Back to Black, but Straight to Heaven is a close second.

    I bought a full bottle of rose oud because when i was sniffing it at saks it smelled great. Then when i took it home and sprayed some on the next day it gave me a bad headache. I dont know why it did given it smells wonderful in the store. Stuffs potent.

    Back to Black. Best honey I know of at the high end, though a nice old Perlier bain moussant would do just as well.

    I have to give the nod to Straight to Heaven, but I also am a huge fan of Back to Black. Decisions, decisions.

    Straight to Heaven is absolutely amazing, especially in cold weather. When Kilian himself told me at South Coast Plaza to smell Straight to Heaven even though I had pre-sniffed several other By Kilians because he thought it would be the best fit for me, he was dead-on. It transports you to an entirely different place from where you are every time you get a whiff of it. It is masterfully blended, has gotten me countless compliments, and is well worth the price.

    Back to Black also transports me to another world; this time to PK's: a tobacconist and newsstand in Des Plaines, Illinois that I visited frequently as a very young child to look at kids' and computer magazines (and get candy on the side). It smells exactly like how I remember the shop: numerous pipe tobaccos mixed with candy, newsprint and magazines. And since I had fond memories of PK's, I fell in love with Back to Black.

    Both have excellent longevity, though the drydown of Straight to Heaven is far closer to the skin than that of Back to Black.

    I also like A Taste of Heaven, Amber Oud, and Prelude to Love as well, but Straight to Heaven and Back to Black remain my favorites from the By Kilian line.

    Incense Oud...rich "in-your-face" incense and spice fragrance.

    I've only tried some from the line (A Taste of Heaven, Back to Black, Cruel Intentions, Liaisons Dangereuses) and "been there, done that, smell better" are the feeling I have for all of then. Lack of creativity and uniqueness is the common pattern I find from the ones I've tried

    Straight to Heaven; its great for winter.

    Is it a By Kilian fragrance that is spicy, oriental, strong and powerful with great projection? Not sweet, but maby just a tiny hint of sweetness. Something in the family with Amouage Epic, Honour, Silver, Frapin Caravelle Epicee, CDG 2 Man, etc.

    Back to black then love, then straight to heaven. All the others are lost on me especially for the price. Even straight to heaven is kinda hit or miss for me the few times ive worn it.

    Tough question. I have grown to like the house over the last 2 years.
    Currently own:
    Pure Oud & Extreme Oud
    Incense Oud
    Eternal Oud
    Straight to Heaven & A Taste of Heaven
    Amber Oud (which I don't like and am selling).

    I just tried Musk Oud today and really liked it. Eternal oud is the intense version of Musk Oud. Yet to try Rose Oud and Gold Oud.

    My favourite is probably Extreme Oud at the moment. I like the Oud and Saffron combo in particular.

    I sampled Smoke for the Soul from a lab sample in NY and it may be my favorite. Why? Because it smells like marijuana and I like the smell of pot.

    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24

    2. Givenchy Insense

    3. Roja Dove 51 Pour Homme
    4. Lalique Hommage a L'Homme

    Smoke for the soul ...nothing else like it
    It's actually quite unique but still very wearable for me . It smells similar to what I think a famous rock star would probably smell like after a big show.
