I am interested in trying oud. Any recommendation? I am looking at Versace, boss and John varvatos. Just worried it will be overly sweet

Versace Oud Noir is a good start for the 3 you mentioned.

nice, a bit smoky , a bit woody.
I get the notes although subtly.

You cannot go wrong with D&G The One.

Your partner / mother / aunt will probably like the smell. It's a mass pleaser.
Smelt another person on it today. Might be a small world for this fragrance here.

Versace Oud Noir is a good one to try. Woody, spicy and a little sweet but never gets too sweet.

Keep in mind most designers use aromachemicals to replicate the oud accord and/or they only have trace amounts of oud to the point where it's legally permissible to say their fragrance contains oud, but the oud is barely or not noticeable to the nose.

Nothing wrong with that, and niche houses do that too, just need to remember that what you're picking up may not actually be oud, but:
- a stripped down version of oud made to be more wearable
- an aromachemical replication, whether accurate or not
- some other woody note

Also remember that there are different variants of oud which vary in terms of how skanky, rubbery or creamy they are.

Thanks guys!

I just received the perfumes. Took a quick whiff and decided to spray the Versace. Really like it. Just a slight hint of sweetness and I like the spice notes.

When I try to sniff the boss oud. It felt more woody but there is this synthetic kind of smell. But it was a quick one as I had to go out. I will probably try that tomorrow.
