Elegant, mysterious roller coaster ride
In my perfumery of trust I had my first contact with Tom Ford's Oud Wood. On this day I wanted to give myself a really great scent. Sniffed my way through all Guerlain and AdP and PdM. The nice lady then said to me, "If you know this one, it would suit you well. I let myself be sprayed with it. Then I just thought wow.... This really judges mega great. Oud I could only very discreetly or even not at all point out. But the combination of wood, light sweet. mixed with oriental spices had me really under its spell and almost knocked me out.
When I saw the price for 30ml. I took a short breath. 106 Euro for 30ml. That's an announcement of the finest. I said I have to take the fragrance out for a walk to see how it develops over time. That's what I did then. I can only say it was the best roller coaster ride of my life. It just kept getting better and better and different. But just awesome! No special ingredient gets the upper hand here. But the composition of all fragrances is really noble, sexy, mysteriously coordinated. A unisex scent of the extra class, like the price. After 3 hours stop I went back to the perfumery and said it was the one. Bought it for me. To this day, it's one of my three favorite scents. I'll always buy it for me. It's very difficult to break the perfume down into its component parts. I won't dare. But I recommend everyone, man or woman, to try it on and let it take effect on you. It's found that the fragrance can be worn all year round. In summer, dose a little more carefully. Shelf life for me is about 6-7 hours. Sillage good but not obtrusive or slain.
Oud Wood you are perfect. He really plays in the league of champions. So is the prize! But anyway, he's worth it.

OUD WOOD
I love this frag. Its so classy in the unique way. Opening is wonderfull, drydown even better. But dont last that much anymore. I think this is much reforumlated, i remember it smelling and lasting long time couple of years ago, but the new bottle not so much. Still love it.

My favourite winter scent
Horny Badboy in a suit fragrance.
For me, Oud Wood smells very woody and very soft like oud, maybe even a bit creamy but still somehow masculine, animalistic. I always wear it on special occasions like church, Christmas and New Year. Of course you can also wear it throughout the year, I like it especially on cold days. For warm days I really prefer the fresher scents. What I find a bit negative for the price is that the lid seems a bit worthless to me because of the plastic. For the price you could have at least put a metal stopper on top of it, so that the bottle doesn't fall down when you put the lid on. Luckily this hasn't happened to me yet but even an "Abercrombie&Fitch Athentic" has a magnetic cap and costs three times as little.
But well one should not grumble too much on a high level. After all, it's all about the juice in the bottle. Simply my favourite scent for colder anniversaries in autumn, winter and partly spring. I'm usually more of a freshy but Oud Wood really surpasses any other cold days scent I've had the chance to sniff

The world of scents welcomed me with a warm embrace
... ...and won't let go. The man responsible for this is none other than Tom Ford's Oud Wood! And I am still so grateful to him.
In my youth, generally disinterested in perfume, with the attitude: "It all smells the same somehow, is overpriced anyway and can it really last the day and be perceived?!" I came across him by chance about three years ago... and was immediately overwhelmed, captivated, enchanted...
For me, scents were always some kind of sweet or fresh, uniform mash (shame on me! - so mean prejudices can be), which didn't irritate me, but when I smelled this scent for the first time and then noticed that it also lasts well (which is actually the case with me, many people have a point of criticism here), it was just about me. Besides the questions who is this genius Tom Ford and what the hell "Oud" means, I knew:
1. I must have that scent, whatever the cost!
2. Probably this is not an isolated case, I have to reconsider my attitude towards perfume and try to find out more about it.
3. If I was wrong, and the world of perfume has so much more to offer, how do I finance this addiction as a young adult? :D
But as it is in life, you find ways. Well, now I'm rambling... Back to the essential:
The fragrance is a wonderful, woody and very pleasing composition. It is very warm and at times slightly sweetish, so in my opinion you shouldn't apply too much, which is good for your wallet, as the TF Private Line is not exactly cheap (I know... there is more to it... anyway...). However, I'm also pleased to see how long a 30 ml bottle can last if you don't use it daily and in a more select manner. :) Still, I think you could use this fragrance as a daily driver. Maybe not in the middle of summer and of course the industry has to fit and you have to be the type for it but you don't have a super oriental or even animalistic oud scent here. It is a well tempered, very careful oud creation with a lot of other woods and most wonderful tonka/vanilla, but in my opinion it still offers enough oriental/new things to inspire European and inexperienced noses and to make them curious... as it just happened with me!
So... this is it... my first review here on the forum... I knew it had to be about that scent, because it's just the one that started it all for me. Honour to whom honour is due

Mysterious & elegant companion through life

The signature scent. I think we choose it because we think it's what we think we see in ourselves. And we want to be perceived as such to some degree. But perhaps it is also much simpler: We choose as signature scent the one we simply like the most - and therefore want to wear it all the time.

When I started to deal with the Tom Ford Private Blends a few years ago, Oud Wood hit my nerve 100 percent and clearly outperformed the not badly positioned competition. And so Oud Wood took his place as number 1, became my most worn fragrance. You spray it on your skin and there's this masculine, self-contained "Here I am". The woody notes are flattered by the spiciness. Here the scent becomes more sweet, but for me it remains a cool caress. At the same time it is perceptible to the environment without wanting to scream. It is simply there, that fits to this fragrance and is statement enough. That's why the Sillage is perfectly met, even if it is not outstanding. Oud Wood lasts a good 6 hours on my skin, then it is only perceptible close to my body. If there was anything to criticize at all, it would be just here, with the durability
I find his potential to be able to take on basically any situation in life astonishing: Whether on an evening date, a formal appointment in a suit, in your free time, on vacation on the other side of the world - Oud Wood is always sitting, always radiating his calming, powerful elegance. He never seems out of place to me. Even when the summer temperatures rise above 30 degrees and some other nose-flatterers threaten to overwhelm either the wearer or at least those around him, Oud Wood keeps a cool head. Thanks to its woody notes, subtle freshness and projection that is not excessive but well balanced, it is still wearable even in scorching heat. And thus, as I said, basically a perfect allrounder for the whole year.

I still find it difficult to describe the scent, to say what exactly I perceive and when. But I think that's exactly what makes it attractive. The real works of art don't reveal themselves in every last detail. They remain somewhat mysterious and enigmatic, leaving the imagination forever open to interpretation.

And just as little as one might wish for a fragrance, we do not want to be completely readable by everyone. We have our secrets, we have deep thoughts and feelings that only we know. And we change on our path through life. Certain props of our lifestyle accompany us on this journey. If you are looking for a companion in fragrant form, who is elegant but never boring, Torm Ford's "Oud Wood" will surely hit the mark.

Perfect for me
My first contact with Oud Wood was at Munich Airport. To bridge the waiting time until my return flight after a business appointment, I was looking for a new perfume in the Duty Free Shop, but at that time I was only working in the designer area and thought Dsquared Wood was the best.

When I was approached, I asked for a woody scent and was promptly presented with Oud Wood as my first fragrance. It wasn't just love at first sight, but it beguiled me the whole flight back and the next day. Of course I did not buy it, the price was much too high.

But the good memory remained. 2 years later, I was with my wife in Nuremberg at the Breuninger and suddenly stood in front of the Private Blend row. Immediately I applied Oud Wood again and we were both enthusiastic again. But the price stopped me again.

Again 2 years later and richer in perfume experience (DS Durga, Lalique, Wiener Blut) :
Since 1 week I have my first 30 ml filling at home. Actually I wanted to give it up for special occasions, exactly these occasions have taken place: I quit my job after more than 11 years, with some fear and uncertainty about the course of events- with Oud Wood you go into the conversation confidently and feel self-confident and have the feeling that you can literally smell good. And that all day long, top Sillage without annoying yourself or others.

Of course I wore it to the signing of the contract for the new job and damn it I will wear it the first day :)
So a good scent can really influence the mood and appearance. I can already say that I will wear exactly this fragrance on all festive, important, beautiful and sad occasions. I can't imagine anyone else.
Almost everything has been said about the fragrance itself. I experience durability and silage as very, very good and pleasant, after all, it lasts in summery temperatures and the mentioned stressful phases from 6 in the morning until the next morning.

The only question is, after this, will I buy 100 milliliters or more..

Just okay.
To anticipate my personal impression, I must say that I find the fragrance very very mediocre, especially when you consider the price/performance ratio.
When I first applied the fragrance, the first thing I could smell was a strong rose scent. This dominates the top note in my eyes and for the first 20 minutes you smell nothing else but the scent of a rose. In combination with the wood notes, which are only subliminally represented in the first time, the scent seems very dry to me at the beginning. Dry may describe it strangely, but it smells to me what it feels like to have a dry throat. Or like when some hairspray or deodorant was sprayed in a room that is too small and you notice it a little bit in your airways. This also gives me a rather synthetic impression of the perfume, although you would expect a natural scent of the fragrances used, which is absolutely the case with other TF fragrances After some time (about 30-60min) the fragrance developed a little more harmonious, a certain sweetness was added, which in my opinion would have been good in the opening note. However, this only lets the scent smell okay in my eyes. I can better imagine this initially rather dry rose scent and later a slightly sweeter harmonious scent on a lady who is looking for a classic scent for everyday life. As a young man I do not find the fragrance recommendable.
After a few hours I can still perceive the fragrance quite easily, which makes the durability seem okay to me, but which leaves a below average impression for such a high-priced fragrance.
All in all, I have often heard in everyday life how this scent really appeals to many people, but not to me personally after my test. However, it remains a matter of taste, of course, and I hope that my critical but objective contribution could be a help for someone who might weigh up the pros and cons to buy the scent.

Oud - Liquid gold
Almost exactly a year ago I bought my first fragrance from Tom Ford's private blend collection, Tobacco Vanilla. Oud Wood is now my second perfume from this forge.

After the first spraying a sweet but also woody scent develops. As someone who has had his first oud experiences with Kilian and Maison Francis I have to say that it is difficult to filter out an oud note. It is drowned out by the scent of roses and only appears after an hour and remains extremely shy throughout. When the skin warms up after light physical exertion, the oud scent is minimally noticeable. Otherwise you will search in vain after a relatively short time.
Nevertheless, Oud Wood is a successful composition and a very beautiful fragrance. H&S on the other hand are simply sad.

I hope that the Intense version has a similar character and does not deviate strongly from the original, so that you can have a longer pleasure with this beautiful fragrance, even if in a slightly modified form.

Transparent-woody elegance
Oud Wood by Tom Ford was my first fragrance in the price range. Although I loved from the first moment, I struggled with myself for a long time, until two years ago I treated myself to a small bottle of it. Since then, numerous bottles have been added and I'm still not sick of it.

Oud Wood is above all what the name promises: woody! The combination of different woods is wonderfully created and I find it hard to separate the individual woods from each other. Instead, everything is united in a unique, incredibly beautiful fragrance. The eponymous oud here is not animalistic or dirty, but rather spicy-light. Although the fragrance is so woody, it never becomes too heavy or bulky, but radiates a certain transparency that makes it very pleasant to wear. Amber, tonka bean and vanilla round off the fragrance very nicely, without making it too sweet, and cardamom gives it a spicy freshness.

Durability and sillage are hard for me to judge meanwhile. I have days when I can't smell it after a short time - on other days I can smell it on me in the car on the way back from work, 10h+ after application. Probably I have applied so much Oud Wood in my life that my nose got used to it. All in all I would rate the durability as good. The Sillage is much more limited than other Tom Ford firecrackers like Tobacco Vanilla or Tuscan Leather, but the smell is still good for people around me and I have been asked about it several times at work. The not overly strong performance makes Oud Wood for me wearable outside of the cold seasons - it works best, in my opinion, but definitely in mild autumn temperatures.

For me, Oud Wood embodies a timeless elegance that is both classic and modern. For me it is still the benchmark when it comes to woody fragrances!

My first
Who is this Oud Wood that everybody is talking about and that all known youtubers include in their videos.
Never tried an oud fragrance before!
Reviews and comments read through here and rated as very interesting, is definitely worth a test filling!

A few days later the 10ML filling arrived.
Full of joy I took the first test sprayer and thought, how could I have missed it for so long Very nice scent, which makes me very happy not just with a fist in the face for the other people.

Can only recommend the fragrance even as a novice!

A nice well behaved oud fragrance. It's harmless in such away that it does not seem to be a Tom Ford private line perfume. It's overpriced.
