What are Montale, Mancera, and others basing their smell of 'oud' on?

Let's be real. This doesn't Smell like oud. At least I can't really get the connection.

I do however notice the 'oud' in Montale, in the way that it's recognizable as their oud; not an actual oud smell.

But, I'm curious... what are these oud smells based off of? Why would they smell that and go, "Yeah, let's use that for the oud smell."?

I think this misleads a lot of people in the frag comm. into either thinking they like or dislike oud, when they actually don't know what it smells like. :undecided:

I highly suggest getting oud oils (samples, at least) from reputable/quality sellers, such as Ensar Oud.

So far the closest I've ever smelled, that actually smells like/close to real oud oil is with MFK's Oud Cashmere Mood, and one other one... Silk? Satin? I can't remember.

Also, I tried fumigating some oud chips, and a couple of times briefly it reminded me of Oud Ispahan.

Edit - To clarify, I'm not saying the Montale (etc.) 'oud' smell is bad - I don't just find it accurate much, if at all. I love Aoud Vanille, great stuff. Wearing Aoud Velvet right now!
