Which version of Tom Ford Tobacco Oud do you recommend? Made in USA or Switzerland?

Hello Dears. I recently had the chance to buy two different versions of Tobacco Oud, one made in USA (2014 batch code) and one made in Switzerland (newer productions). I am going to consult with you about which one to get.
Has Tobacco Oud reformulated in the last decade? There used to be a whiskey accord in the early versions, was that accord still present in the later versions? Is there a noticeable difference in quality between the Swiss version and the American version of it?


I’m not old, I’m vintage.

There was a thread on this a while back. People compared various Tom Ford scents made in the USA to those made in Switzerland, and found no significant difference.

Speaking only for myself, I personally wouldn't recommend either, but having said that, you should go with the consensus in this thread of my fellow Basenoters.
