I really enjoy TF Oud Wood.

However, I don’t have access to a lot of frags to sample. My Oud experiences are Oud Wood and Tobacco Oud.

Anyone know the hardest brand/house to find discounted?

Want to maximize a giftcard xD

Also any recommendations on 10/10 frags?

Cheers.

Of designers I believe Chanel are typically difficult to find discounted.

I’ve heard Allure Homme Blanche edp is approaching 10/10 for some people under that house. Harder to find though, and Allure Homme Sport Extreme people also seem to rate high.

If you let us know where the gift card is for, we could probably recommend something more realistic. There's no sense in recommending something you can't get with the gift card right?

For example, if it's Sephora, probably Kilian is the way to go. If Shoppers, maybe Chanel or Tom Ford. If Saks maybe Memo, Byredo, MFK, or Creed, if Holts, maybe Frederic Malle, or Creed, if Frgrancebuy, maybe Roja....

True. Chanel is more difficult to find discounted. Allure Homme Blanche is nice for sure, but it only lasts a couple of hours on me. :(

Those are two good ones for sure though.

It’s just a generic giftcard so any big name big box retailer.

I really wanted to pick up creed mi but def seen better than 500$ for 100 ml.

So like a mall wide type GC? Like Charliegee said then, Chanel is harder to find at resellers. I can't think of too much else that's available at the bigger stores that you can't get at a reseller without going into specifics scents.

Parfums Vintage - Rush of Unicorns gets great reviews as a MI clone with way better performance. Under $100 for a bottle as well.

Chanel frags are real hard to get at discounters. Fragrance X has them sparingly. FragBuy never has them.

I had Allure Homme and really liked it.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme and Essition Blanche both get real good reviews.
