    Default M7 projection better?

    Finally got around to my sample of the original M7 today. Have only been wearing it for 10-15 minutes, but something strange is happening. I like it okay when I sniff it on my wrist. As I'm sitting at my computer, however, I'm actually enjoying the scent of its projection BETTER. I've never had a frag do that before. Is that normal for M7...or ANY scent for that matter?

    The opening is ok, but the dry down and unexpected sniff is better

    Absolutely. I used to make the mistake of judging a fragrance by sticking my nose right into it over and over again, and this really isn't fair or realistic, as that's not what you or others will smell as you wear the scent (well, until that point in the evening when someone's nose is in your chest). Dior Leather Oud is my best example of this: the skank isn't disturbing to me unless I purposefully get close and SNIFF. From a small distance, it's just warm, snuggly, and a bit suggestive of something lascivious. Likely the same with Kouros, after the opening calms down.
