    That's an amazing deal bro - where did you find that??? Those 120ml bottles usually go for at least $220!

    edit: reading comprehension fail, re-read and realized that price was for a 50ml bottle, not a 100 or 120 (16L01 came in both sizes)

    This is actually my batch too...I thought the “4” at the front of the batch was a 1 and then followed by a 3 making “13”, but it’s a 4. The batch code is etched into the bottom lip on the back of the bottle and is impossible to photo (almost impossible to make out), but the numbers and letters match up exactly to yours. I was excited when I bought it knowing it was vintage, but to learn that it’s likely a 2010, early early batch is even better.

    I need to get another bottle of Royal Oud soon. Any ideas on where I can get my hands on 16L01 or something comparable?

    If you're willing to do the due diligence, it can be found on Ebay or on some of the FB frag groups. I happened to snag a 50ml bottle of 16L off of Ebay a few months ago. As I've stated above, I'm finding my two older bottles to be sufficiently different (and better) than a recent decant I own from 2018/2019.

    16L01 is the batch I have. Glad to own a 4oz bottle of it. One of my top 5 of all time!!

    Which batches/years have the most of that sharp top note? I have a 2011 bottle, and it's nice and deep, but it doesn't have the "pop" of the top notes of an official creed sample I had. Is it 2016 on?

    You might like 2018/2019 bottles. I have a few decants from around then (unsure of specifics) and it's noticeably brighter than my 2011 and my 2016. Personally, I don't like it as much but you might like it.
