    Default "Masculine" rose+oud combo in the style of Armani Royal Oud? h

    I apologize if this is a common topic but I didn't see anything recent when I search for it.

    For years I've avoided the rose+oud combo because there's so many it's hard to wade through them all and find what works on my skin. Faqat Lil Rijal Rasasi
    was my no brainer oud of choice, but I'm starting to expand my oud horizons.

    I just got a sample of Armani Royal Oud and I'm absolutely in love. I get the rose but it doesn't overwhelm and dominate the fragrance like it does in several Montales and Manceras I've tried. It also feels like a dark, rich, opulent and sensual rose not grandma soap rose.

    That's what I'm looking for in an oud fragrance that has heavy rose: Opulence and sensuality not just a rose note for the sake of having rose in it.

    With that in mind, what other rose+oud combos would you recommend? Not a fan of Black Aoud or pretty much any Montale rose oud I've worn.

    I'm also sampling Sooud Jadab Eau Fine which is nice, it's a sort of safe floral oud. I like it, it's very pleasant but it's a little too safe for me to justify the purchase. If I'm paying niche price for oud I want a little more punch to it.

    I have not tried the Armani. I quite like Oud Ispahan by Dior. There's a big rose, but after a few minutes it turns towards rich woods.

    Perhaps S.T. Dupont Oud et Rose

    Excellent fragrance, but I don't get any rose from Armani Prive Oud Royal.

    My favourite rose+oud combo so far is probably By Kilian's Rose Oud, followed closely by Tom Ford's Noir de Noir, Amouage's Homage Attar, Jo Malone's Velvet Rose & Oud and Ermenegildo Zegna's Indonesian Oud. Though, none of these can be considered particularly masculine in my opinion.

    I'm uncertain if it's 'in the style of Armani', but I really like Thirty Three by Ex Idolo.
    I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I want a full bottle as of right now.

    Rose Oud by Nicolai is lovely. I can't tell if it's masculine or not but I like it and wear it.

    To a lesser extent, also taking the liberty to add Habit Rouge EDP

    Oud Palao is good, and although it doesn't have oud, Déclaration d'Un Soir is a good masculine dry rose.

    Agree with Oud Palao.. Aramis Perfume Calligraphy (not the rose or saffron flankers) is another one to think about.

    I think Perfume Calligraphy is too ambery and patchouli-heavy to really be a standout rose-oud, but I'll admit discounter prices on this one are nice enough that a person may be able to live with that if they're looking for just a nip of two.
