    Default Similar scents to M7

    M7 is my favorite scent. However sometimes I get tired of wearing it so much. Can anyone suggest something similar to M7? Thank you.

    You might like Nu Edp by YSL.

    You should try the Eau de Parfum version of Guerlain's Habit Rouge. It has an agarwood note and an ambery slightly overripe sweetness that reminds me of a less sharp cousin to M7. It's hard to find, but sometimes you can find it from eBay.

    It depends upon what you are responding to in M7 mostly, but I'd say Jacomo Rouge may be what you're seeking.

    An expensive option that smells somewhat similar is Cruel Intentions by By Kilian. I however, prefer M7 (although many prefer CI, so it's worth a sniff at least.)

    ??? That is really interesting. To me Rouge is a better Le Male.
    I can only think of Korres Saffron Amber Agarwood Cardamom.

    I think is Costume National Homme is just as if more intriguing....

    If it's the dark, sweet part of M7 that gets you, try Dior Homme Intense. It's got the sweet, cherry-ish top, with a warm drydown. Highly addictive.

    If you love M7, you're gonna faint when you smell Oud Wood. It's my favorite Tom Ford. Here, the medicinal oud is toned way down and is accentuated with creamy rosewood and spicy yet fresh cardamom note. Amazing!

    I agree with the above with Dior Homme Intense.

    As well, I feel Fahrenheit Absolute is a scent similar to M7

    Good luck.

    Really guys? I'm going to be the first to mention Nasomatto Duro? It's M7 amped up to 11.

    Very correct, Sir!

    Then again, M7 can be credited to Tom Ford, while at YSL.

    This is the most random list of suggestions I have ever read. Among those, maybe Nasomatto Duro would work, if it wasn't pointlessly inferior and more expensive than any vintage M7.

    M7 Oud Absolu is still close to the original. It isn't a far cry from it as some claim.

    Korres - Saffron Amber Agarwood Cardamom is somewhat similar. Lighter and fresher, but it does smell sort of in the ballpark.

    I obviously haven't tried every fragrance ever made but the original M7 shocked me when it was first launched and I haven't smelt anything similar to it since. It was a bold, courageous creation by YSL, which is sorely lacking in 'designer world' nowadays.

    I always thought Oud Wood was kind of close.

    I was always thinking they may be quite different.

    Montale Aoud Shiny has that vibe IMO.

    The main difference is that the original is has a thick amber note, which Oud Absolu replaces with Myrrh. It smells drier than the original, but the overall feel and scent is still there.

    Your mileage may vary, I just never understood the critique that Oud Absolu is nothing like the original.

    Perhaps also LM Black Oud, layered with anything spicier and/gourmand. This being said, although M7 is by far not my favorite fragrance, have to admit it is not just that skillfully but also that uniquely crafted up to the point of being difficultly or even impossibly matched by even remotely similar designer or even niche/designer exclusive/otherwise limited edition, indie and/or artisan fragrance still in production and widely retailed.

    Exactly! There really is no reason for anyone to hunt down vintage M7 when they can readily buy the Oud Absolu which is amazing in itself.. The only reason why anyone should hunt down the vintage is if perhaps they owned it before and want it again for sentimental reasons.. I think YSL did a great job with Oud Absolu.. It still smells very much like M7, it is only a bit more smoother and modern.. I know a lot of people may disagree with me but the Oud Absolu even outperformed the vintage on my skin..
