    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.
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (29 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (27 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (22 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (21 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (17 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (17 wears)

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    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.
    "It's not what you look like when you're doing what you're doing; it's what you're doing when you're doing what you look like you're doing."

    Interesting link. Checking that site leads to another cubic bottle male releases of: Rive Gauche, Jazz and Pour Homme. I wonder if it will be new formulations or just new bottles..

    It seems like some of the older scents are being repackaged. I hope this doesn't lead to reformulation...

    How exciting. I might actually get this one instead of the old one if the oud is as "absolu" as it's described.

    This is really interesting !

    Strangely, I did not read anything about this. Although perhaps my mental block of all things Green Irish Tweed and AMen somehow had an error and included this YSL new thing.

    Quite simply, I want to sample this. This can and and will make its may to North America. Come on guys, TEAM WORK !!!

    Note de cœur : Bois de Oud, Vιtiver.

    Note de fond : Ambre, Musc.

    For starters, I think we would've known about it before today as it's being released tomorrow. Secondly, YSL has a habit of not releasing certain flankers here like the Kouros flankers, the Opium flankers and most recently the La Nuit EdP.

    Who knows... I could be wrong. Maybe this is YSL's answer to Aramis' Gentleman's Collection.

    Not on the US web site, so I am sure a Europe only release. Now I will have to try and get this one over here...can't wait.

    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

    M7 was already reformulated.

    I wonder if anything that's not in the collection (Opium PH, Live Jazz, etc) will be discontinued...

    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.
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

    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.
