I own all the incarnations of M7. The vintage, reformulated in the clear bottle with red sticker on the back, and M7 Oud Absolu. I think that the vintage and reformulated version are very close. The vintage may have a slightly more animalistic vibe, but it does not warrant a triple digit price tag IMHO. Then again, if you're an M7 fanatic then I guess the vintage is a must have. I just think that $120 can be spent on something else rather than a fragrance you already have 2 bottles of, albeit every so slightly different due to reformulation.
