    Default M7 discontinued?

    I have heard a lot about this one from here at basenotes but every store I went into NYC they all look at me like it does not exist anymore and said it discontinued

    am i missing something? I even checked the fragrance district as well.

    I really hate to blind buy something though I see you can order it online.

    Does anyone know anywhere you can buy and test it in NYC?


    Does anyone know what it smells smiliar to? I have tested Montale Black Aoud and do like it, so I am curious what Aoud smells like in M7

    The Oud in M7 is less pronounced. Not sure where you can find some in NYC, although I'm sure you can.

    More than likely they are lying to you just to brush you off.

    Call any of these store on the Yves Saint Laurent site and ask if they have any M7 in stock to test:

    M7 has it's own website, still: http://www.ysl-m7.com/

    If you are patient, you can get M7 at a good price on eBay. Then, if you don't like it, it's one of those frags that's fairly easy to swap or sell here. I would suggest a blind buy on this one, so long as you've tried an oud before and you are looking for a milder one. I like M7 once in a while. I only use one spray. It's a great "change of pace" for me.

    go to one of the YSL boutiques....i think there's one on 57th street.....that's where i tried out M7 a few months back...

    no, it's not discontinued. IF you do wanna buy it after trying it---and wanna save alot of $$...head down to the perfume district (around 32nd and broadway) afterwards, and buy it for 1/2 off....same juice, just cheaper....i'd never pay 'full price' for designer scents.

    I will say that I haven't seen M7 anywhere since right after I started this hobby.

    Yeah I like that store, too... There are a couple of places in that area that I trust... and I have seen M7 as recent as two weeks ago, maybe not at Americana, though. Most store names there I don't even pay attention to.

    i tried a few stores up around madison and 50's and all said it been discontinued including saks and other high end stores

    instead of me wasting time trying to hunt one place that might have it, i will just buy it blind it seems there are enough people who love it that for some reason if i do not like it i can probably swap or sell it here

    try the YSL store in the galleria, I was just there a couple weekends ago.

    M7 does grow on you, definately not something I'd wear everyday, but it has a certain charm to it. That drydown is magnificent!

    I didn't see it at the YSL store. It is however available at some of the stores on Harwin. However, the prices are practically full retail for it (I saw a 100ml bottle for $65 a few weeks ago).
