Pre-shower: AdP Colonia Intensa
SOTD: Mona di Orio Oud. I overapplied a bit this morning, so I think I'll be exposing the masses to an excellent fragrance today.

A couple days ago someone asked about ouds to try. There are so many, but the two that jump out to me are Mona di Orio Oud and L'Artisan Al Oudh.

Which do you prefer? I believe Mona di Orio contains actual Laotian oud. The price tag certainly justifies it, imo.

They're very different, so it's hard to compare apples to apples. The L'Artisan is very much in the Bertrand Duchaufour style, and the oud is complemented by a strong dried fruit note. The Mona is a purer, stronger oud, although it's definitely softened by some floral notes. If I had to pick one that I preferred, it would be the Mona di Orio, but it's a very close call.

I need to get a sample of that.

Aventus today.I must say, I don"t get the hype with this. No way I'd pay FB price for it.

Hmmm, so many out there. I'd try Tom Ford Private Blends Oud Wood, some of the ByKilian Oud series like Pure Oud and Incense Oud and maybe Amber Oud. And the aforementioned ones L'Artisan Al Aoudh and Mona di Orio's Oud. Those are some more or less direct oud fragrances, then there are a bunch on the market with prominent oud notes (eg M7)

I would most definitely NOT recommend the L'Artisan Oud to anyone faint of heart. Or not interested in smelling like an unwashed crotch.

Speaking of oud's, I sprayed Acqua di Parma's Oud today. I definitely think I like this best out of all the oud's I've tried so far, but there's something VERY POTENT in this that requires a deft hand at application.

I think this is going to be a hit with those who enjoy the fragrances that can be worn by either sex (I'm lookin at you, Cupcake).

Is this different from the old Baiser du Draogon?

That, I do not know. But, if it follows the recent trend of reformulating old scents and repackaging them as new, I'd have to think so.

I´ve ordered some Etat Libre d´Orange samples after trying Rien & Tom of Finalnd at a local shop. ToF was really interesting.
