Smell:

Upon initial encounter, Oud Wood smells precisely as the name would suggest – a compelling mix of oud and wood. The woody notes are assertively at the forefront, while the oud lingers subtly in the background, creating an intriguing balance. This fragrance is a departure from Tom Ford’s more audacious and overpowering creations. Instead, Oud Wood is the epitome of understatement, commanding but not attention-seeking, hinting at an aura of maturity and authority.

In my opinion, this scent would best suit a mature man, perhaps someone who is consistently well-dressed, grounded, and emanates a serious demeanor. Oud Wood shines in the mild temperatures of spring and autumn, and while it might lack the intensity to assert itself in the frigid winter air, it can still hold its own with its warm woody notes.

Longevity:

Considering its composition of generally heavy and lasting notes, you might anticipate Oud Wood to have an impressive lifespan. However, in my experience, this isn’t the case. It does endure for a considerable number of hours, offering a consistent presence without becoming too overpowering, but it isn’t one of those fragrances that linger on your skin or clothes until the next day. That’s not necessarily a flaw, but something to keep in mind.

Final Thoughts:

In conclusion, Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, as I see it, is a fragrance that quietly whispers confidence and sophistication. This scent seems tailor-made for the mature gentleman who favours the elegance of a suit, without being overly ostentatious. If you find Tobacco Oud a tad too robust or brash for your liking, then Oud Wood is the relaxed, more tame alternative you might just be looking for.

To wrap up this review, while Oud Wood may not have outshined my beloved Tobacco Oud, it’s undoubtedly left its mark with its understated elegance and masculine authority. Keep in mind, that this isn’t a fragrance for younger guys!
