Authentic ouds are known as “big” meaning they consist of intense smells that allows you to use less of the product. In this case, less is more so you are not overpowering every person around you. If you are looking for a scent that is extremely powerful, then try Oud Alif by Shay & Blue, Ermenegildo Zagna Indonesia Oud, Armani/Prive Oud Royal, or Creed Royal-Oud.

An accessible Oud fragrance scent allows it to be a less overpowering, which allows it to be less noticeable from the people around you. Specific brands that are known for Oud fragrances with a less intense aroma are Tom Ford or Comme des Garçons. If you want to try a fragrance with a less intense smell, try Tom Ford’s Oud Wood or Spicy Tobacco Oud. Other brands to try are Comme des Garçons Wonderoud, John Varvatos Oud, and Boss Body Oud.

Now there are other ouds that are phenomenal but have a weird mix of scents. One example would be Tom Ford’s Private Blend Oud Minérale. This scent is the combination of smoked wood that resembles warmth with a hint of salty marine like fragrance. Another example is the Acqua Di Parma Colonia Intensa Oud due to the mix of lemon and wood. This creates a rich and fresh scent leaving behind a hint of smoked citrus. Other fresh ouds consist of Jo Malone’s Oud and Bergamot.

To beyond the realm of fragrances! We find ourselves searching for other useful oud products, which are available. If you are addicted to using oud fragrances you can purchase the Carsons Apothecary Oud Beard Oil. If you happen to not have a beard, well… now is the perfect time to grow one!

Other products are mainly household items.

Some examples would be the Timothy Dunn Oud candle or the Acqua Di Parma Heavyweight Colonia Cube candle. Incenses can be purchased as well.
