    Default Looking for a middle eastern-style oudy-musky fragrance...!!

    ..But wearable !
    I mean, i do like heavy and bold musky/woody orientals,but i can't wear any heavy animalic musk.
    For instance i do have Yatagan and i like to wear it time to time.I can't stand Kouros though.

    Recently ,i tried Montale's Musk to musk and i really liked the vibe.

    Some fragrances i really like are: M7,Jubilation XXV,Songe d'un bois d'été,Gucci Pour Homme,Chergui,L'air du desert marocain,TF Oud wood.

    I have seen brands as Swiss Arabian,Oudh Abiyad Rasasi ,ajmal etc.,but i can't be sure if they offer something more weareable.

    Any recommendations??

    That would get my vote also over the Montale.

    In Montale, Black aoud or Lime aoud would be good choices as there's not much animalic musk (as in Oud cuir d'arabie).

    I don't know much about Arabian houses. I do own Swissarabian Mukhallat Malaki and Mukhallat shahamah, which are decent (and strong) synthetic ouds (without animalics). There are a few threads on Mukhallat malaki on Bn.

    I would suggest you try by Kilian's Musk Oud, the musk in it is of the cleaner white musk variety with just a small, hardly perceptible naughtiness, a very good mukhallat in my opinion.

    If you can handle Songe, then you can handle musks and animalics! What about Black Afgano? It's divisive (I like it) -- a hilariously loud Oud / weed / incense thing. Montecristo isn't really oudy or middle eastern, but it's musty and musky as anything. There's nothing like it, and so I'd say give it a go if you can. My last suggestion would be Vikt which isn't eastern either, but is a sort of licorice incense. It's fennel, anise, and ravensara over styrax and other resins. The base is Oud, rare attars, and a ton of Mysore. It smells the way raw licorice tastes.

    This one or Mukhallat Shams by Ajmal. Hindi oud, a bit of rose and some musk. Very potent and lasting.

    Not sure if this has musk, but definitely Amouage Epic Man has that aromatic, oud and smoke combination that you are after.

    RM Agar Musk gets my vote as well. Very unique and intriguing.

    Another vote for Amouage Epic Man. Spicy, woodsy, oud. Not animalic, but warm and masculine.

    I like Epic man, even owned it at one time. I love the intense green, slightly medicinal opening, but it looses this character and an annoying red raspberry type of note comes through and disrupts it, then turns into a white musk scent for the remainder hours. This would be holy grail material if it retained the beginning.

    I would suggest Roseaoud and Musc by Mancera as well as Black Aoud by Montale.
