    M7 Fresh by Yves Saint Laurent

    I'm going against the grain here, but, even though I really liked M7, I didn't find M7 Fresh impressive at all. It's not a bad fragrance, however it is an average one at best.

    The cherry syrup opening of the original, is heavily toned down (good news for people who didn't like it). This one is dominated by grapefruit and ginger. The drydown has some of the elements of the M7 drydown. The projection is very weak, which is a shame, because the oud is so subtle in this one.

    This one is like a summer version of M7, good for very hot weather. It is versatile and good for all ages, though the scent itself is not impressive. This one does not really stand out. It isn't that much better than the hundreds of ho-hum designer fragrances at the mall.

    If you didn't like M7, you may like this one. If you like M7, you may or may not like this one. The only way to find out is to try it. I'm not urging anyone to sample this, but if you are interested, try it out.
