Dark aoud>M7>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Black aoud
Not tried the musk
Voted Dark Aoud and M7
I love 3 of th 4. I wear M7 most often of the 3. Dark Aoud is perhaps my favorite Montale but don't wear the beast that often. Black Aoud is high on my list too but so rosey that I have to be in the mood. Love all 3 but M7 is the most versitile for me. Can't choose one!
1. Amouage Epic man
2. Dior Leather Oud
3. Chanel Sycomore
4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
5. Amouage Opus VII
6. Bond No.9 New York Oud
7. Norma Kamali Incense
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Own and love all four but my preference would be for Aoud Musk
Voted for Black Aoud. I haven't tried them all. Tried only M7 & BA .
I chose BA because I love the fresh, lush, cut red roses overtop earthy patchouli. Gorgeous juice
They all are very different from each other you cannot choose just one.
I own M7 and samples of all 3 Montales.
M7 is great.
Black Aoud is hard to wear and I have to be in mood to wear it.
Dark Aoud is easier to wear and very dry, woody scent. I wouldnt mind to own small decant of it.
Aoud Musk to me is like Black Aoud without roses. I kinda like it.
If I had to pick 1 of them it would be M7. If I had to pick 1 from Montale "Aouds" that I tried it would be without doubt White Aoud but I am sucker for vanilla.
Current TOP 5:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
3. Dior Homme Intense
4. Encre Noire
I have M7 and I have tried Black Aoud and Aoud Musk. I prefer M7.
My Top 10
1. Amouage Homage Attar
2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
3. YSL M7
4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
5. Chanel Egoiste
6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
7. Amouage Epic Man
8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
10. Serge Lutens - Chergui
"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
I prefer Black Aoud as it's the most luxurious of them all to me. The others are very nice but I'm not nearly as impressed with them.
M7 > Dark Aoud >> Black Aoud
Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.
Haven't tried M7 but I pick Dark Aoud.

Current top 10 (No order):
1. Pure Havane
2. Menthe Fraiche
3. Tobacco Vanille
4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
5. Green Irish Tweed
7. Musc Ravageur
8. Tonka Imperial
9. Gucci Pour Homme II
10. Dior Homme Intense
Own three, but have smelled all of them (however I only smelled Oud Musk once *I think*). Tough choice but it's honestly too hard to choose between M7, Black Aoud, and Dark Aoud without knowing the occasions you'd be wearing them in. M7 is the most versatile of the four, with Black Aoud being the least. However if it was for a purely formal event, Black Aoud would stand head and shoulders above the others.
All that being said, I voted for Dark Aoud.
The current results of this poll restore my faith in humanity.
M7 is better than any of the Montale Ouds. (Just my opinion)
