    Default M7 pre-reformulation?

    Hey all,

    I recently purchased a bottle of M7 that was packaged in the new style bottle with the one amber colored side, and the rest clear glass. I love the scent, a lot, but I was a little disappointed in the volume and longevity of the juice. I have read a few reviews saying the original formulation was insanely strong, and I was wanting to know if anyone else felt that way before I sprang for the original. That also brings up another question: is the original formula recognizable by the all amber colored glass bottle with the silver band above it?

    Thanks for any help,

    Cody

    Never tried the reformulated one but the vintage version is really strong and potent. And yes, the all-amber-coloured glass bottle is the vintage one.

    Don't know what's out there now, as I only have a bottle of the original when it was first released. What I have, has very good longevity and projection.

    I have both and I don't think the original is that much stronger than the new one.

    I have the original and don't find it anywhere near the beast of projection and longevity that folks here make it out to be. I like the odd tart-cherry opening, but for most of the rest it turns into a keening white musk for me. It's a high, somewhat shrill note, not a booming bass. In any event, I think the strength of the original has been a bit overblown. Still an admirable fragrance, though.

    Just to confuse matters more, I have the same bottle as you and I find that the projection and strength are about as much as I can handle.
