    I sampled Wonderoud and didn't care for it.

    Royal Oud, on the other hand, is easily in my all time top 5 among scents by any house. To say that it's outstanding is an understatement.

    Sample first.

    Creed Royal Oud for me by far.
    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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Own and enjoy both.. voted for Royal Oud just because it's a little more interesting overall, and has better performance. Wonderwood is nice and perfect for the office, but a little too soft for my liking.

    It'll be a landslide to the Creed, but Wonderoud is my biggest compliment getter bar none. I own the Lomani Royal Oud clone and it's indistinguishable to me from the original so I feel no need to pay £200 for something I can buy for a tiny fraction of that. I even have a backup Lomani.

    Not a fan of Royal Oud (no Oud note, should have been named mediocre angelica), but they very different scents despite both having Oud in their names. Not really comparable in my opinion.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Wonderoud immediately captured my attention 1st time I smelled it and I eventually bought a bottle.
    Had read tons of praise about Royal Oud and maybe I was expecting too much but on me it smelled high quality but rather ordinary.

    Wonderoud made the biggest impression on me when I first smelled it. The drydown of Royal Oud smelled better to me. It has to be a tie for me.

    This is turning out as I suspected, they are very similar ,Royal Oud been dryer and more peppery on the opening. For the price difference, I'll keep the CDG Wonderoud

    Try Lomani Intense Black as well. Royal Oud for around 1/20 of the price.

    I don't know how CdG Wonderoud could be compared to Creed Royal Oud. They are very different animals. However, if I have to choose, then Royal Oud hands down.

    Neither of them are actually oud smells IMHO, just different interpretations of the note. So it's hard to just 'compare' them in this sense given no specific criteria were specified.

    Royal Oud is clearly the most popular; it's peppery and dry owing to the angelica.

    Wonderoud, whilst very similar to Wonderwood, has a wonderful (sorry!) black pepper note, cedar (ISO E Super) plus loads of Javanol in the dry down.

    I would probably choose one over the other on different days depending on mood, weather, etc. If I had to choose, I'm inclined to say Wonderoud.

    Hahaha. Funny. I thought you would say you'd choose Royal Oud.

    Royal Oud is better - though much more expensive as well.

    Wonderoud is nice. But Royal Oud is a masterpiece.

    +1 - Lomani Intense Black - which IMO is 75% Royal Oud and 25% Carbone de Balmain, is one of the best bargains out there. A must try for a budget shopper.
