About M7

The first male scent from YSL since Tom Ford took the helm, is packaged in a deep brown bottle with a silver band at the top. The fragrance contains notes of Agarwood and is a fresh and woody sensual scent. Created by Alberto Morillas (Tommy, cK One, Angel...) and Jacques Cavalier (Issey, Ultraviolet..). The fragrance is so called as it is the seventh mens YSL brand.

Reviews of M7

I don't dislike M7; it has a mixture of vanilla and berry-type fruity notes, against a spicy background. It actually reminds me of a spicier, heavier version of Patou's Ma Liberte. However, M7 is one of those fragrances that I am very aware of every time I breathe in, which I really find too much (and I enjoy heavy fragrances). Therefore, I have to give this a neutral: I like the fragrance, but find it too heavy and clinging.

M7 is sweet, sticky, heavy and masculine. Not for summer or casual wear. Very unique, mature and has the cola vibe. Very similar to the newer, Oud Absolu version, so give that a try if original M7 is hard to come by or too expensive.

It's a very interesting experience because you can smell the woods and incense but that's really not what comes to mind when smelling. It is strong and sweet enough to get a compliment but just not in that same vein as those other more popular scents. You'll wear this for yourself, not others.

Excellent performance, projects nicely and lasts all day.

Dark, resinous, and powerful, in terms of intensity, YSL M7 lives up to the hype that it's built as a bygone fragrance from the Tom Ford era of YSL. Seemingly a mix of oud, incense, and resin, but nothing too well-defined, lending credence to its superb blending. I do like how it sweetens and the sharpeness gives way to sweetness in the dry down. It's sophisticated, masculine, and strong, while not being overpowering or cloying.

This original is definitely superior to the reformulated version, M7 Oud Absolu, that is part of a line, "La Collection," of a handful of reformulations of vaulted classics, like Jazz.

Certainly for an EDT, it's superlative in terms of power, along the likes of the 1980s powerhouses, or even some of the Mugler A*Men line.

I'm not blown away but I'd still say it leans more toward a "love" than a "like" so I'd be happy to have more than my decant but am also content to test my decant out while I test the market, though the market surely seems high for it.

I won't knock M7 outright. It's a daring, bold scent that is an acquire taste, both for wearer and those who smell it.

M7 grabs you from the very start and demands your (and others) attention with the tangy opening notes coupled with the agarwood. That's where one would determine, IMO, whether or not it's the fragrance for him.

In my case, I found it too strong and unrelenting. Woody oriental scents are a favorite of mine; I like what M7 is trying to achieve, but I think there are other fragrances that do it in tamer, more accessible ways.

Nevertheless...if you're looking for a pungent, powdery fragrance that won't pull any punches, M7 is for you. Quite hard to find nowadays for a decent price, alas.

A nice fragrance. I find no oud in it though.
It is sweety, ambery and has that medicinal vibe.
I would recommend it but for the price. I would get Kalemat instead. Kalemat is an EDP to M7 EDT.

a syrupy medicinal powdery ambery oudy fragrance.

vintage version (amber glass on 4 sides): This is a great fragrance from YSL. opens up with a quiet sharp and sweet medicinal smell that is pleasant. as time progresses it gets less medicinal and more powdery and ambery. the fragrance is also quiet sweet. i always cant stop sniffing the atomizer. smells really good. the performance is good. (12 hour longevity). most suitable in cooler weather. highly recommended.
