    Default • M7 Oud Absolu •

    M7 Oud Absolu is released tomorrow, in a new cubic bottle. The oud note is supposed to be stronger than ever. Let's see how it compares to the original formulation...

    I'm interested! Hope it is a good one since M7 is a favorite (vintage anyway).

    The page is in French and I am wondering if this will be a Europe only release. A quick search finds nothing in English about this one.

    I am intrigued! My issue with the original was that the musk and ambery sweetness cloyed and covered the oud.

    Sidenote: Are all the bottles going to look like this now? They all appear like this in the YSL link provided.

    cet accord fusionne avec la myrrhe et le ciste pour crιer un sillage chaud, intense et fascinant.

    La mandarine apporte une ouverture en tκte et lui donne une vibration singuliθre, tandis qu’une facette boisιe patchouli trθs puissante lui confθre une profondeur et une tιnacitι addictives.
    OK, this doesn't sound quite right - as far as I can tell the original didn't have any myrrhe, labdanum or patchouli, for that matter. Would be a shame if this was reformulated

    I see what you mean, but I think many fragrances make their way to NAmerica anyways. La Nuit de L'homme EDP was on Fragrancenet ( and still is). It is also pushed alot in department stores where I live, so take that for what its worth.

    What do you mean this doesn't sound right ? Of course, if it is called M7 Oud Absolu, it is gonna be different than the regular and current YSL M7. Myrrh, labdanum and patchouli sound awesome.

    Well, the name might be different, but so is the packaging which is identical to the new Rive Gauche and others, so I've just assumed that it's just a different way of peddling their "old" products for YSL (see: Opium). But on the other hand, if this is a limited edition..

    Hahha, same here. I for one am shocked that YSL is bringing back, or rather refreshing some of their old fragrances.

    Given the current niche interest in oud, it seems just right that YSL is revamping the father of all western ouds, M7, perhaps for a more niche audience. Whether the same or different, at least it doesn't appear that they are toning it down, as they did for Opium.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION A rupture strong for a perfume of excesses which is the first to use an agreement wood of Oud: the agreement merged with the myrrh and cistus to create a wake hot, intense and fascinating. The mandarine brings openness in head and gives him a vibration singular, while a facet wooded Patchouli very powerful gives it a depth and a tenacity addictive.
    Resolutely contemporary, M7 OUD Absolute is richer of a mineral freshness sparkling, thus revealing the richness of expression of the agreement wood of oud. Capacity: 80 ml

    Something to look forward to from YSL. If they want to sell it in the US theyll have to put it in a LHomme bottle and call it L'Homme de Oud or something and give away a free folding chair w purchase.

    This is really exciting news. Thanks Lecritiquedeparfum!

    So the men's scents are M7, Rive Gauche PH, YSL PH, Jazz, and the women's, Nu, Yvresse, Y, and In Love Again.
    I am excited to sample these and compare formulas. I quite like the repackaging.

    Interesting how they're not making brand new exclusive releases e.g. Les Exclusifs de Chanel, La Collection Couturier Parfumeur by Dior or the Hermessence line. Rather, they are revitalizing their existing portfolio. Very interesting. Curious to see how this will pan out in the market.

    "Rebaptized M7 Oud Absolu to stress its key component now that oud perfumes are amounting to a tidal wave on the landscape of contemporary perfumery. YSL visibly want to remind customers that they were early adopters and trend-setters."

    Quite strategic...

    OK, so Chanel has got their Exclusivs, as well as Dior's... why not YSL? What gets my mind is that they are the same as the ones sold in stores: are we dealing with different formulations? No info so far...

    On a local presentation for the launch of Saharienne a friend who hapens to be a journalist asked YSL's Global Marketing Manager how they were coping with the fact that they were selling luxury (specialty) goods that were produced in an industrial scale, namely, a contradiction in terms. It caused a discomfortable attitude among YSL's staff, they answered the question with generalities that did not deal with the question at all, so basically, they are conscious about this. I am left wondering if this collection has as its main goal solving this paradox, with the con that they are versions of already existing products.

    Let's try and them and judge by ourselves.

    BTW, Les Exclusivs by Chanel are finally here. Good news!
