    Default Aoud Lime or M7 Fresh

    I finally had the chance to try M7 fresh and it had eluded me for a long time. One of those I have had on my list, just never at the top. My question is; Which of these two do you prefer and do you find either or both versatile ?

    Aoud Lime will be my choice. M7 fresh when I sampled was weak on both proj & longevity, and I love the M7 Oud Absolu & the reg M7 both of which are better frags compared to the Fresh...Fresh is lighter compared to the other 2. so if u have either of the reg m7 or the oud absolu, i suggest in not wasting $ on the Fresh.

    Aoud Lime on the other hand got me the most # of compliments from women. Its one of my fav motales, if not THE fav one...

    got M7 fresh... nice but oud absolu will do the trick better in scorching heat, imo!

    Aoud lime is not the best for oud lime combination. Try acqua di Parma oud , much better imo.

    There is absolutely no lime or semblance of lime in Colonia Intensa Oud.

    Aoud Lime, after the initial medicinal and weird blast, you get a fantastic smell that lasts and gets better every hour of its drydown.

    M7 fresh is beautiful i think.
    Extremely versatile as well.

    M7 fresh lasts forever on me. It's still around next morning in the shower.
    Don't like the granny's knickers powder in m7.

    M7F is certainly more versatile, more wearer-friendly, but not as distinctive or dynamic as AL. Classic apples and oranges (or perhaps cherries and limes) comparison. I like them both, but AL can be off-putting to some, eg. "Who's wearing bug spray?"

    Aoud Lime hands down. Aoud lime is a very classic oud-saffron-rose combo, assertive in the Montale manner, but smoother than most.

    M7 fresh hands down for me, Aoud lime is great on the other skins but not on mine.

    For me it's Aoud Lime! One of the best Montales. M7 fresh is good but not in the same ballpark...
