I've got similar questions as well, and have just created a thread about this topic;
I've had a bottle of Avignon for several years that I use on occasion, but I feel I need to be a bit "heavy handed" with it to get any longevity...and it ends up fading within a few hours to almost nothing. Montale's Full Incense seems to be a bit more "rounded" and pleasant to me, and seemingly lasts all day (which I love).
And not directed towards you, but I fail to see M7 as an incense fragrance. As a longtime owner/user of M7, it smells of cherries and synthetic oud to me, not incense.
If i could squeeze more longevity out of CdG's Kyoto, or Olivier Durbano's Black Tourmaline I'd probably re-purchase both. Unfortunately both faded into skin-scents after an hour or so. I love the smokiness of both.
