    Default Just starting out and overwhelmed

    Hi , everyone very new on here , i never owned much in scents over many years, but when i did start to like to wear them i happen to come across this one !
    my dilemma is i use to have a vintage tom ford gold label oud wood which i really loved , but ran out.
    However i do have the grey later version presently , which feels to be not has strong , I like it , but lacking what ever the vintage one had?
    is it possible to still obtain the vintage anywhere i looked avidly with no success?

    Hello and Welcome Bezzy, you can always start a thread for a wanted vintage bottle of Oud Wood here on BN. I agree that the gold label bottle of Oud Wood is much better than the current grey version is, best of luck in your search.

    Hi Bezzy and welcome to Basenotes! Have you checked eBay? That is where I have bought pretty much all my vintage fragrances.

    You just have to keep looking. If anywhere, it will most likely pop up on eBay. Maybe keep your eyes on facebook groups and Basenotes as well. Good luck!

    Welcome Bezzy. I would strongly looking in the sales threads and perhaps creating a thread in the Fragrance wanted forum. Ebay would be another place to look. Good luck.

    Just did an eBay search, two showed up. Both sellers I'd be cautious about given their low feedback with one of them having a low feedback score.

    A 250ml decanter.

    This seller on BN is selling a vintage bottle:

    Seconded, Ebay may be sketchy but finding a trusted retailer is not as difficult nor scarce to find as it may seem first and when in doubt about Ebay, BN and other marketplace/retail groups and forums might eventually not just yield the results sought for, but also likely fulfilling price, age/vintage, authenticity requirements.

    It sucks when fragrances change, eBay with Tom Ford is quite risky so many fakes.

    I'm sure that a vintage bottle is somewhere on Ebay. Just be careful because Tom Ford is one of the most faked brands and Oud Wood is one of the most faked fragrances.

    Yeah don't get into ebay for TF, there are enough TF fakes to sanitize the planet.

    Get Carved Oud by Thameen.

    I am almost positive that there is a seller on here that is selling one. Might not be cheap, but I wouldn't expect to get a hard-to-find, vintage bottle of Tom Ford for cheap. Search in the "Items For Sale" forum here.

    Edit: looks like N.Cal did the work for you! Its expensive but if its your favorite scent... you only live once! Might as well buy what makes you happy.
