    Default Fragrance Du Bois favorites?

    What are everyone’s favorites from Fragrance Du Bois? I used to have Oud Bleu and really enjoyed it but haven’t tried any others.

    I have only tried 4 so far, but I must say I have been very impressed by them so far. I am really going to make it a goal to explore this house much more this year.

    My favorite so far is probably Parisian Oud.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    I like the obvious one - Sahraa Oud, but have a New York Intense sample coming.

    My favorite release of their's is the pure oud oil release Borneo Oud. As far as their perfumes go, I really enjoy Oud Noir Intense. It smells a lot like Oud Wood, but better. This makes it a bit boring to me, but I can't deny that I really, really enjoy wearing it.

    Oud Noir Intense - agree on oud wood but with the better performance all around. Need to compare with Carved Oud I think from Thameem to decide which one to get.

    NY 5th Ave

    Oud Blue

    Sahraa Oud

    -

    tried the below

    cannibus intense
    New York Intense

    ---- I want to try the below next:
    Oud Violet
    Zeste Marin
    Parisian Oud
    Amber Intense

    It seems the cheapest place to order these from us from Selfridges. Even with the tax and shipping it comes out cheaper than Luckyscent or the FDB website

    Jovoy Paris is cheaper than Selfridges. Unfortunately they aren't shipping at this time.

    Ah gotcha. Yeah, I want to try more from the line, but not easy to come by samples.

    Sahraa, London Oud, and Parisian Oud are my favorites, but there isn't one I haven't enjoyed.

    Anyone has any experience with their fragrance pens? How do they compare with the juice inside the bottle? As far as I understand, the concentration in the pen is huile de parfum. Does it dry up if you don't use it for an extended period of time and also how many wears you can get out of it?

    Wasn't aware the concentration was different on the pens. Do you have a source on that?

    There is this fella on YouTube called Hueleme Mucho, guy owns a few FdB pens maybe if you send him a DM on Youtube or IG you'll get an answer. Nice guy really.

    Oud Orange Intense is my favorite so far, and Sahraa Oud smells fantastic though it's not my style. I haven't tried any of the real new releases, but New York Fifth Avenue and Siberian Rose are on my to-try list (well, all of them, but those are at the top).

    Oud Vert Intense is my favorite. Saharaa Oud is also very nice and comes in second. Oud Bleu Intense is my next pick.

    My favorite is Oud Noir Intense, reminds me a lot of Tom Ford's Oud Wood, but better.

    Sahraa Oud is great but I definitely get the 'Blood' note vibe out of this that stops it from being a Love from a like.

    Yes. Own bottles of both and both are very nice.

    I own and love Bleu, Vert, and Violet. My favorite of these three is Oud Violet Intense though it definitely leans feminine to me.

    Nice thread ..i am very curious about this house but they have too many releases to keep a track on ...but i have seen raves about sahaara oud ...is it worth the hype and price ...does it last long ..what is the closest comparison....is it better than ROJA Aoud Parfum ?
    Also, nice to read that Oud Noire intense is similar to Oud Wood...will definitely check it out as Oud wood is my favorite ( but for the performance duh ! ) ....so i will try to secure a sample or go blind ...

    I have seen it on another forum. Also, they are alcohol free, so I imagine they would be more oily.

    Sahraa Oud
    Oud Rouge Intense
    Oud Noir Intense

    I'm also very interested in their attars, at £115 for 15ml, they are very economical too.

    More of an aromatic woody scent.
