    Default YSL M7 has to be one of the most popular designer men's fragrance in the fragrance world

    I know Le Male may be #1, but YSL M7 has to be next in line. Also you can't buy M7 at your local fragrance store here in the United States, but just reading what is said about this fragrance, it's up there with the Le Male.
    My Top 10

    1. Amouage Homage Attar
    2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
    3. YSL M7
    4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    5. Chanel Egoiste
    6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
    7. Amouage Epic Man
    8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
    10. Serge Lutens - Chergui

    About four years ago Basenoters were raving about it. It seemed like they couldn't get enough of it.

    That would be disappointing but I also wouldn't believe an on counter sales person. It's still listed on the YSL website.

    I think it's much less wearable plus from my understanding and memory was nowhere near as generally popular with the buying public.

    It's a nice scent that I like to have a small decant of, but I solid my bottle and don't regret it. I probably only wear it like 1-2x a winter and that's it.

    Well, Le Male isn't so popular on basenotes. But yeah M7 was along the lines of Musc Ravageur, Jubilation XXV, Pure Malt and the other pop stars on here.

    Just try to get the vintage bottle which is red/brownish all over, not the one only red from the front side.

    For a while, I felt like M7 was fighting with me every time I wore it. Lately, I've gone back to it and we get along great these days. I don't know how popular it is-- I've only smelled it twice on someone else. Still, I do recall getting some very enthusiastic comments on M7 from a girl I used to date.

    It can be a tricky scent. The line of body products is very good, but I used to layer them (they each smell a bit different), and in my experience it was overkill. When I learned to go easy on this one, I found it much more suitable.

    Now that I've smelled a bazillion different "oud" scents, I appreciate M7 even more.

    No. YSL M7 is nowhere near Le Male in sales. Its not even in the top 100 or even 200 in sales for mens fragrances. KMF said it right. It was a sales dud.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Fahrenheit Absolute, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Fan di Fendi Assolu, Lalique Hommage Voyageur, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    M7 and Le Male are great fragrances.....Armani's Gio Pour Homme is still the #1 fragrance.....I know this just kills many here at Basenotes but it is true.....Gio is #1 in sales and probably the #1 hated fragrance at Basenotes!!!

    Not popular at all, but a good scent nevertheless. It's less wearable than any of the other YSLs (except maybe Kouros), but that aoud note is intoxicating.

    M7 is yet another example of a bold and unique designer fragrance that was essentially rejected by the buying public (at least in the US). I wore it just the other day and was reminded how unique it is. It was so different from anything at the fragrance counter when it came out - I can imagine it would be a hard sell when everything else is aquatics and other garbage. I give YSL props for keeping it around this long because most other houses would have dropped it a long time ago (i.e. D&G By Man).

    It is not popular in the US because you can't buy it at your local fragrance store. That's a good thing because less people will be wearing it... the only people who will know about M7 are the hardcore fragrance geeks...

    I just remarked yesterday that I've only smelled M7 on other people twice, ever. Oddly, tonight, I just encountered it again. My bar was packed and somebody was definitely wearing M7-- not a huge overapplication that filled the air, but rather a nice judicious amount, and it smelled really good. I detected it for a very long time and it was nice.

    It's not the easiest scent to pull off and it's not the most versatile, but when it works, it really works.

    Not for the scent itself. The full-frontal nude ad didn't go well with the public. You can see it here.

    Woah dude you could have warned us that the full frontal was a dude. Anyway M7 is awesome I have sampled some oil of it, and it's one of those scents that is so rare, but so awesome that it could be your own personal scent in a way.

    Just bought a bottle last week along with a bottle of M7 Fresh. I guess I was lucky because I got the all brown bottle and I've heard that the newer bottles with the brown stickers on one side have a reformulated version. I live in Florida so the fresh version is much better, but I do love the smell of the original. Definately a winter fragrance.

    I recently picked up a small bottle...wore it for the first time today. I'm glad I read some of the reviews on here warning about how strong it was, because I would've bombed out the whole shop otherwise. I sprayed once on the chest and I have smelled it since 8 this morning and it's almost midnight... I really enjoyed it all day. Although, at some times, it smelled like a cereal that I can't place...

    Is there a major difference between the original (all red bottle) and the supposed re-formulated bottle (one side red sticker)?

    I've heard that the new formula is much weaker, but I've not tried it myself. Personally I like M7 Fresh better and wish they would either reformulate this or make an extreme version.
