    OUD WOOD is more versatile - I'd go for that

    Depends on what you like more - a woody or a leathery scent. At these prices though, this is something you need to test first (and not just in the department store).

    Oud Wood is like a tamed stripped down version of the private blend line. The oud is not particularly strong. Tuscan leather is linear but strong and an interesting smell.

    Oud Wood

    Literally just tried a sample of TL while sat in my office and I am positive that OW is far better

    Oud Wood. It's more modern and wearable. I like Tuscan Leather but I find it too powdery at times, and it lasts WAY too long (24 hours +)

    Not a fan of Oud Wood, particularly with the grating base.
    Big fan of Tuscan Leather, so...there's my vote.

    TL, I have a certain amount of buyer's remorse over OW as it's kind of blah for me.

    id say Oud Wood, but you may want to consider Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa Oud, a bit cheaper per ml and I think it compares favorably. I might say that Oud Wood projects a little more, longer, but I get decent projection from the AdP for about 4 hours and it goes to 6 or 7 before it really is a skin scent

    If you like a mundane fragrance then oud wood is your man.

    Tough choice for me between the two. All I'll add is my impression that TL is quite a bit louder than OW. That might help with a decision.

    I own both, but seldom wear either. I'd say Tuscan Leather by a hair, simply because there are better oud scents out there (as there are leather scents).

    I own both, but Tuscan Leather is by far the better scent to my nose.

    Oud Wood is really well done, but it's a little bland and not very good in the performance department.

    I really love the scent of Tuscan Leather, and it's by far the most powerful fragrance I have in my collection.

    Hope this helps.

    Two of my favorites from the Tom Ford Private Blend line.... But I got TL leather first and now have 2 x 100 ml, whereas I now have a 100 ml and a 250 ml flacon of Oud Wood.

    This shows Tuscan Leather is more unique and forward, whereas Oud Wood is more beautiful and versatile.

    Reason I got more Oud Wood in the end is also cause it layers so well with many many other scents!

    Oud Wood is my preference of the two by quite a way, but TL is far stronger on me if that has any bearing on your decision.

    Decants of both. If forced to pick one, i would say Tuscan Leather since you already have an oud scent.

    Oud Wood smells like an old lady fragrance.

    Gotta go with TL!
