    I agree.

    1) I think because just YSL has made it...
    2) It's easy to wear for everyone.

    M7 all the way for me, it's one of the few fragrances I find lifts my mood. It's not great in hot weather though.
    Dirty English is great too and on my shopping list, it's probably easier to wear more often.

    I didn't like M7 at first, but now it's one of my favorite. Top 5 on my list on the fragrances that I own...

    Kind of like that cute girl who had those thick geeky nerdy glasses on. Take off those glasses, and bammm! she's Jessica Alba...what a babe...

    M7. If you're quite young still, Dirty English, possibly. Something about it reminds me of Eternity for Men and makes it very teenager for me.

These are two very differently priced and completely differently scented colognes. Whereas, like all YSL fragrances, M7 doesn't usually come cheap, Dirty English can be found cheap at many discount department stores or even pharmacies (granted in discount department stores the condition of the product can be extremely rough from being handled, sprayed, and sniffed by dozens of people, and in pharmacies, it's not as cheap.) Not to mention the sheer difference of scent - M7 is a fresh, eager-to-please (IMO) fragrance, Dirty English is a peppery, animalic, "dirty" fragrance - it's out for blood. It's not trying to make anyone happy, and it seems to even trick some people into thinking its fairly good staying power is poor. Really the only thing these two have in common is the wood, and the two types of woods are so different that's not even much in common.

    When it all boils down, it's just what you like and what you're willing to pay for.

    -D.
    I respectfully disagree. I have M7 and Dirty English right here next to GIT and Cool Water.
    M7 doesn't smell like GIT or CW, but it smells as much like DE as GIT smells like CW. GIT and CW have some similarities, but the refined luxuriousness of GIT is the most noticeable character that puts it in a league above CW. It a great analogy and comparison because the same refined luxuriousness of M7 is what puts it in a league above Dirty English. If M7 was as inexpensive as DE I would wear M7 more often. I think M7 and Dirty English are close enough to each other to be worn on 75% of the same occasions. Most Basenote members will be able to distinguish the difference, but I bet less than 50% of the general public would not distinguish the difference if the two frags were not sampled side by side. I wear the Dirty English much more often than the M7. I reserve the M7 for more special occasions. DE is a bit more versatile. DE is still a night clubbing type sent, but it's more like using your regular Corelle china wear as opposed to pulling out the vintage Chinz or whatever. With all that being said, I don't wear either one of them often enough to replace either one of them when the bottles are empty. Even at $20 for the DE, I don't think it's fragrance money well spent. Find some vintage Old Spice. You get a lot more use out of it and believe it or not, a lot more compliments.

    Gold vs Iron. I'll go with that analogy. Forget about the current monetary value of gold and iron.
    Gold has very good electrical conduction properties and a few other useful character traits, but people find a lot more used for Iron than Gold. In our life time we will use Iron much more often than gold. Even when a dentist places a Gold filing in a patients mouth, the dentist uses many tools that have at least some Iron in them. Some of the dentists electrical equipment might have some Gold plated connections, but there will be a lot more use of Iron than Gold, even in a dentists office.
    Point is, which fragrance will the original poster wear most often. Many will wear M7 more often than DE, but I think DE is a bit more versatile than M7. It's an old poll and post, buy I think the original poster might end up wearing DE more often than M7. I do.
    If I had to choose one of the two to wear to a Basenotes party, I would probably go with the M7. If I'm just going bar hopping, I would probably wear the DE.

    I hate M7. I personally prefer DE, although it doesn't blow my mind either.

    M7 is higher quality by far. This is reflected in the price difference, you pick up Dirty English for $25 off amazon

    Strong +1!

    If this is a matter of simple olfactory quality & pleasure - M7 is very, very good (Vintage, that is) for the genre.

    However, if you want something in the genre for cheap (and budget is an issue)...Dirty English. Personally, I think owning both is the right answer because you can apply Dirty English liberally (and reapply for more power/projection/longevity) and not worry about wearing out a 100ml bottle. M7 is something to wear a lot more lightly (because it is so strong) and for special occasion - a very intimate scent.

    Oud is very strong in M7, but I find it to be a background note in Dirty English as well...

    It's more of a difference between level of quality, not which is "better". That is rhetorical.

    Cheers,

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    M7, because there is no better alternative for that specific style of scent.

    DE is bettered by both Yatagan and Idole de Lubin, each which it shares some similarities with.

    To my nose, Dirty English doesn't even remotely smell like a 'fragrance'. It's more of a conceptual scent.. an exercise in woods... One I don't particularly care for... M7 on the other hand is alluring, seductive, warm, sexy even. No comparison IMO.

    This isn't a fair fight. M7 is a heavyweight and Dirty English is a lightweight. Both are great but I have to go with M7 b/c of longevity and projection.
