I love the stuff and I'm not a fan of A*Men or Rochas Man AT ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
I agree with Col. M7 has a "woody" sweetness. The sweetness in M7 is of a very different style than the foody/sugary sweetness of A*men, Rochas Man and other gourmands, which I can't stand, or even fragrances like Gucci Envy and Allure, which are still a little too sweet for me. The woody sweetness in M7 is something that I think will not turn you off if you normally like drier fragrances. Escada Magnetism and Burberry Brit are two others have a similar "dry" sweetness that I enjoy (although they do not smell alike at all). Edit: I'd also add Chanel Antaeus as another one that strikes me as having "dry" sweetness.
M7 does not smell feminine to me, but these gender distinctions are very much a matter of individual taste and perception. I think many of the "masculine" scents I love, I would also love on the right woman (but that's a different topic).
If you are interested in M7 because you LIKE the gourmand style sweetness or WANT something more "feminine", I would be sure to try before buying. This is certainly a fragrance on which, for some reason, impressions seem to range wildly from masculine to feminine and dry to sweet.
