Tom Ford Oud Wood is one of the original 12 fragrances released in the Private Blend collection. This oriental spicey fragrance starts with a wrap of warmth, then a smoky blend and smooth finale. Cool spices and warm wood, wrapped in silky oud and vanilla. Tom Ford launched M7 for YSL when he was there - a legendary fragrance that bombed when it was released because nobody was ready for it. Now it is discontinued and hard to find and expensive when you do find it. Tom Ford Oud Wood is Tom Ford's second attempt at M7, with much better results on marketing.
Reviews of Tom Ford Oud Wood
From Kafkaesque - "spiced, vanilla, vetiver, woody fragrance that simply happens to have some oud in it. It’s neither particularly sweet nor masculine. But it’s infinitely wearable, far from potent, very approachable, and utterly delicious at times."
From Now Smell This - "It's a dark-ish, earthy wood scent, as was M7, and the latter's bitter, almost medicinal undertone is still there (the notes for Oud Wood: rosewood, cardamom, Chinese pepper, oud, sandalwood, vetiver, tonka bean, vanilla and amber). It's lighter in Oud Wood though, and it doesn't last as long; overall, Oud Wood is a quieter fragrance, with the oud itself softened by the vanilla and other wood notes. It does have a nice bite to it, but it isn't nearly as heavily spiced as M7. If you almost liked M7 but found it a bit much, Oud Wood might be perfect."
From Temptalia - "Oud Wood does not remain spicy, though, as it is enveloped by the scent of an ambered sandalwood peeking through with an underlying touch of vetiver. There’s still a lingering of smoke, but it’s musky, sultry, and delectably woody. It smells luxe–rich and earthy–and reminds me a little of what sexiness might embody if it were a scent (to me)."
