Looking for new ideas (The Oud edition)

I really started getting into fragrances about 5 years ago so I suppose I'm still a relative newcomer to the game. I've got 20 or so full bottles but mostly what I have is in 1 mL decants from scentsplit/luckyscent/TPC, etc. I thought maybe if I post a few of lists of what I like, some of the folks with more experience can offer some ideas. Thank you in advance if you take the time to post some ideas. My first list is as follows (I think I'll have to do this as a series of lists by accords):

Oud/Oud accord fragrances I enjoy:
Fragrance du Bois - Sahraa Oud
Bortnikoff - Oud Monarch
Bortnikoff - Oud Sinharaja
Bortnikoff - Oud Maximus Autumn '19
Initio Parfum - Oud for Greatness
Rania J - Oud Assam
Xerjoff - Alexandria II
Xerjoff - Zafar
Tom Ford - Oud Wood
Diptyque - Oud Palao
Amouage - Jubilation XXV
Nasomatto - Pardon
Mona di Orio - Oudh Osmanthus (original formulation)

For an oud accord, I would not sample Amouage - Jubilation XXV. I find no oud in it, whatsoever. However, it is the most fabulous incense accord I have ever smelled, but if you're looking for oud I would look elsewhere.

If you want a 'Western-sensitive' oud, Banana Republic Oud Mosaic is a clean, bright profile for a perfect dress-up or dress-down accessory. The oud is not cheesy or barnyard, but just the right touch of classy animalic-ness that is perfect for Western tastes.

It sounds like something I'd like, I'll check it out. I appreciate the advice. Thanks!

Looking forward to reviews of the new Guerlain oud trio. Cherry Oud — the phrase is French for “guilty pleasure.” Can’t wait to give it a sniff.

Bonus points for the amusing name Oud Nude. Like the title of a cheesy soft core porn movie on Cinemax, and not as obnoxious as some the other naughty fragrance names going around these days. Likely to be a good fragrance, too.

Indeed many great recommendations already mentioned, also adding LM Black Oud among the pricey but still great quality, Boss Bottled Oud and Ungaro III Oud Edition among the more affordable options
