About M7 Fresh

M7 Fresh was launched in July 2004 as a follow up to 2002's M7 fragrance. It was created by Firmenich perfumer Jacques Cavallier, who co-created the original M7 with Alberto Morillas.

The fragrance features Oud (Agarwood), like the original, but partners it with some fresher notes such as grapefruit and ginger.

Reviews of M7 Fresh

Had to get this after trying the fantastic Original M7- when the label says "fresh", they mean it! I don't even get the grapefruit note, just FRESH and lovely herbal notes. One of my new faves. Why discontinue this?! A must have!

YSL M7 Fresh is connected to the original M7 that preceded it by their common use of oud, but Fresh is a significant departure in that it is far less of a deep, dark experience and far more of a fresh one, as its name rightly suggests.

I get a slight aquatic vibe despite the fresher components being grapefruit, ginger, neroli, and vetiver, none explicitly marine, but nonetheless excellently coupled with the bold oud that come out more in the dry down.

This reminds me of the recently-released Tom Ford (Private Blend) Oud Minerale in their similar pairing of oud with fresher elements.

Still pricey on the secondary market (as it's been discontinued for some years), M7 Fresh is nonetheless impressive in juggling the fresh elements and oud. In my mind, conceptually, this duality shouldn't work out well, but for some reason, it does, and I'm left impressed by it.

Dusted off my bottle of M7 Fresh after a decade of non-use, and decided to give it another spritz.

From the start, there is a big burst of citrus (grapefruit) and ginger. It envelopes me immediately with the neroli in a gentle way, fading slightly after 15 minutes. Vetiver is evident around this time, remaining stable throughout the wear cycle.

It definitely strikes me as a deliberately muted version of the loud original, suited for warmer seasons but wearable in cooler months as well. Probably harder to find nowadays, but worth checking out if you'd like a toned-down, decent flanker of M7.

Not enough M7 DNA for me but still nice to wear. It is more fresh, less heavy than original or even M7 Oud Absolu. Has a medicinal smell after the opening that doesn't dominate but is noticeable.

Beautiful addictive fragrance sweet zesty and spicy ginger and intense mandrake root. A very classy and now unique fragrance. Nothing new compares to this beautiful creation. For me along with its bigger brother these are both fragrances i crave and find addictive.my advice get a bottle while you can you won't regret it if you like fresh zesty fragrances.

This has nothing to do with the original M7, which I liked very much.

This begins with a burst of grapefruit. The citrus is soon subdued by a menthol note, which burns in the background, a combination of the oud, vetiver and ginger.

It's not a bad scent, but not a particularly interesting one either. The use of oud is restrained, so it is not as harsh as it could have been with a heavier hand.

Another example of a scent named as a flanker that has little if anything to do with the original. Odd habit these perfume houses have of trying to hoodwink susceptible buyers in believing they are getting a mere variation on a best selling scent.
