Intra-industrial trade
For a little while, he's just being coy and making a few twists. For instance the woody-sour character of the oud note - by the way one of the more pleasing of its kind - which, after about ten minutes, seems to me to assume an artificially wood-like coconut turn for a short time. Or the trail of vanilla that soon follows. But then it is confirmed what the first sniff at the tube before the application had already suggested: Within an hour (I'm completely with various previous speakers) the similarity of Black Oud to Black Afgano is undeniable.

An impression that will be further enhanced during the course of the day. Now it could be announced in a derogatory way that another clone of the Gualtieri had simply appeared. Outrageous? Not at all. The whole thing happens scientifically founded!

For a long time, trading had been quite simple for the economy. Generations of students had well memorized an example that had been devised some time ago, according to which England supplied cloth to Portugal and Portugal wine to England. Admittedly sounds logical.

But at some point it could no longer be overlooked that industrial nations, strangely enough, were constantly exchanging similar goods among themselves. Stupid - because how does that fit in with the time-honored explanations? The idea of intra-industrial trade was born. This is about product diversity, larger markets, etc. Also an index for measurement, garnished with a nice formula, was invented. In other words, everything that economists generally make efforts to make their activities appear as exact as possible has been put into the world. With which they then pretend that economic processes can be described and explained with scientific precision and for heaven's sake are not the result of a plethora of partly erratic individual actions by persons who perhaps have a few more original behavioural variants than Galileo's balls, Newton's apple or even Heisenberg's blurred particles.

Whatever. Back to intra-industrial trade:
Nasomatto (Black Afgano) - from Amsterdam
Carner (Cuirs) - from Barcelona
Liquides Imaginaires (Fortis - Eau Delà) - from Paris
LM Parfums (Black Oud) - from Grenoble, but Mr. Mazzone is of Italian descent
Hmm. Nothing from Germany. But - o miracle! - at Black Afgano an Elaborat from the Schlossparfumerie Wolff & Sohn Stuttgart is listed as a twin fragrance: P - 100 Anniversary. Unfortunately I do not know personally, but I trust in the judgement of the dear Mr. Taurus1967, who pointed out exactly this relationship in his commentary. There you go. Now all countries involved can simply move the things back and forth according to preference nuances, thus intra-industrial trade and even the science is satisfied.

And when it comes to preferences, Black Oud can undoubtedly score with its own facets. In addition to the above, an individual tobacco note should also be mentioned, which has already been reported in a previous commentary. The overall stronger emphasis on wood (and vanilla) in the second half is also worth highlighting.

But what's most exciting is that Black Oud has sometimes been described as the more uncivilized compared to Black Afgano. I disagree, find it definitely finer, quieter and more elegant. But it obviously offers plenty of room for manoeuvre. Great.

Many thanks to 0815abc for the sample!

The decent brother of the black afghan
After I tested the Layton Exsclusif as a modern oud scent, I went to my old carton with bottlings to smell this scent again.
Immediately after spraying on I was gripped by nostalgia: I can still remember well how I first got to know this fragrance. It was the time when Nasomatto at Parfumo was very high in the charts and of course I had to test the black Afghan.

Cannabis in a perfume? Oud? What's oud?
I was completely fascinated: I've never smelled anything so unusual in my whole life. For me this was a fragrance composition, which I did not consider possible up to this Zetpunkt: Herbaceous, dirty, sweet and seductive at the same time.

So... then I was grabbed. The oud fever. And that's how I came across Black Oud. Oh, yeah... the scent's got it in it! I never liked going to church, but I've always liked the smell of incense. The incense note runs over the entire fragrance and is supported by an incredibly beautiful spicy sweetness. In contrast to Black Afgano there are no herbaceous undertones here. Black Oud is the decent brother of the Afghan who goes to church every Sunday. For me this fragrance is a masterpiece and even after years there is no more beautiful and sweet oud incense fragrance in my eyes.
The durability and the sillage are outstanding.

Why didn't I buy it or wear it regularly?

Unfortunately, I have to bitterly state that incense in a perfume does not please many people. The scent is (perhaps with the exception of a church visit) rather inappropriate and could be too penetrating for some.
I spray myself nevertheless gladly at home with it and become also without Cannabis "high" of this smell.
A dream in black!

Introverted Oud
Scentrack: Hooverphonic - Mad About You

Probably the nicest oud I have ever tried. A real dark, Oriental beauty... Spices, a touch of incense, sour oud, dark wood, animal excretes, warm amber. So dark, animalic, deep and beautiful. The smell of the Gothic dark forest in midnight and the the traveler under the black hood. A romantic darkness of the heart.
Unfortunately the projection is the big downside of this scent regarding the price. An extremely shy scent. Such a pity.

Dark balsamic - dry resinous - animalic
The strategy of replicating renown without hesitation has become ethic of contemporary perfume trend. God bless Alessandro Gualtieri for opening a path mediocre noses could not even imagine. Yes, Black Oud is just another tribute to Black Afgano (probably made by Sonia Constant again) and nothing new to it. Interesting part is the only favor this replicators do is more volume of liquid in return to the same price. I'm not a fan of BA but if want to pick, I pick BA not these losers.

First test: on paper. Smelling good, OK, deciding, that I will try it later on my wrist. Forgetting about the test paper. Leaving it on the desk in the next room. After two hours I had to enter in the room. It is the biggest one in my flat, the airspace is quite big. I told to my sister, that her perfume is perfect. She told, that she is not wearing anything (yes, it happens once in a year). Then I was playing dog and searching the source of the amazing smell till I found the paper. One small drop and you have an air freshener for the next 2 days.

Scent and longevity is almost the same on human skin. 13 hours after donning it - and it is still strong (much stronger than OPIUM of YSL on my other wrist, donned 5 hours ago). Unfortunately range is only 2-3 meters after 6 hours, so I could not give 120% for sillage, only 100%.

About the fragrance: it is true oud. Woody and balmy notes rules the beginning, it has a dark, powdery, hot oriental aroma, it is drying very fast. Spices are perfectly supporting the torridity of BLACK OUD, you smell them somewhere behind your nose, almost in your throat. Even is oud is listed as heart note, it pervades the whole life of the perfume. This oud is natural, royal, a bit smoky and less masculine than in BLACK AFGANO.

Since the scent is quite similar on paper and on skin, if you do not like it on the test paper, do not blow it on your skin.

Many thanks to Oloroso for the sample!!!
