    Default What is your favourite Oud?

    Hey guys!

    I haven't been on this forum for quite a while, been trying to save and not spend so thought it best to stay away from temptation! I'm back (for now) so apologise if this has already been asked a bunch of times over the past few months. The question I have is what in your opinion is the best Oud or Oud based fragrance on the market right now? I'm hoping to purchase one soon and want to know what out there is worth trying.

    Cheers!

    One I personally like is Oud Pur Oriental by Montale but there are so many good ones.

    So many good ones, I agree. I love Creed's royal oud, and several by Montale.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I should not even respond to this post, since my experience of oud frags is limited...but you must try Mona di Orio's OUD if you can. This is the best fragrance I own (a small 5MM bottle), and I would commit a felony to add a full bottle to my collection, it's that good. Top-notch, easily unisex.

    Dior Leather Oud is probably my favorite.

    If you want to try real oud you can try places like AgarAura or Feeloud. My experience with pure oud oil is a little limited I own 5 bottles and a few samples.

    Best Dirty oud - Leather Oud

    Best Rose Oud - Oud Ispahan

    Best Western Style Oud - Mona di Orio Oud, it is Osmanthus Oud.

    But nothing can beat natural pure oud oil, in depth and complexity.

    For me,

    Leather Oud -- one of the greatest, most divisive stinkers available
    Real Oud Feral -- one of the few oud fragrances that actually contains oud
    Slumberhouse Vikt -- this does many things, but oud is one of them
    MdO Oud -- probably my favorite straight-up oud

    Have also recently had the chance to dig on:
    Ensar Oud Assam Organic and Purple Dervish

    Probably not oud in the truest sense but my own favourites are Creed's Royal Oud and Tom Fords oud Fleur.

    Are we clubbing oud oil & oud wood together now?

    They're very different.

    Alright then, we may as well club galbanum & vetiver and oppoponax & benzoin.

    I really like Maison Francis Kurkdjian Oud. But there seems to be SO many to choose from, all with very different characters. I'm a little oud-ed out, I think...

    Ajmal Dahn al oudh
    Ajmal Dahn al oudh Al shams

    And yes , the real oud oil


    Nejma Threee , Dior - Oud Ispahan , Juliet Has a gun - Midnight Oud and any Montale aoud for casual wear.

    I do own Mona di Orio Oud but IMO it's all about Osmanthus and spice ,just tiny oud
