    I like these two:

    Neroli Oud by Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger
    Montale Aoud Ever

    Can’t really afford to have a prominent oud overwhelming the lighter citrus notes. To that effect I find Oud Bleu Intense by Fragrance Du Bois highly enjoyable.

    Amber Cologne by Bortnikoff is wonderful

    +1 for FDB Oud Bleu Intense. It does not get much better than this, London Oud is another good option. These are fairly expensive though. Another option is Jo Malone Oud and Bergamot Rich Extrait.

    Maybe also the different proportions in which oud is used in the Memo Paris ouds.
    They are on the rather heady side and containing only minimal citrus (if any, mainly during the opening). Yet still there might be just enough slight citrus opening to provide a decent balance towards an oud heavy ending/base.

    I've read that Rasasi Oudh Al Boruzz Asrar Indonesia is a great citrus oud, but haven't tested it personally.

    The signature citrus style typical for this particular niche house is also there in some of the oud line by Xerjoff - and quite remarkably, outstanding on both levels, as much the citrus as well the niche one

    Reminded me also of King Masarat attar by Xerjoff. Not typically 'citrus' but has a beautiful blood orange accord with a dustier, dry oud base. Really stellar stuff.

    Just got mine and have been wearing all week. My oud-hating wife LOVES it. Funny part is, I can smell the oud, unlike most "oud" designer and nich frags. It must be good, then. The quality of the blending and amd ingredients stick out. I'm all in for the Boruzz line, now.
