    If you like Oud Absolu, you will like the vintage M7.

    No one can predict whether or not you will like something, but if you like Oud Absolu then just wait until you get a sniff of the real thing.

    My guess is that you will find it pleasant.

    If you like Gucci Pour Homme , I think you will enjoy the smokiness off M7 vintage

    I don't know the Oud Absolu version, though since it's meant to be somewhat similar that's a good indication. But original M7 is odd stuff -- and still smells odd to me though I've been familiar with it for a few years now. Are you okay with amber? More than anything, M7 is an amber-based fragrance to me, with a tart top and an odd bitter herb cross-current.

    I would agree with this.

    If not love, at least like it. I am personally not much of a fan of this fragrance, but I must admit that especially the vintage formulation of this is wonderfully balanced, crafted, strong and projecting enough while still remaining distinct and complex, without being overpowering.

    Not necessarily.

    I had 2 bottles of vintage M7 which I sold once I got a bottle of Oud Absolu.

    My reason is that the big cherry opening and long wait for the dry down are far too high a price to pay.

    Anyway, there are plenty of other interesting ouds ou there these days.

    Are you saying that you like the new one, and dislike the vintage, or that you like both, but prefer the newer one?

    I own both, vintage M7 and Oud Absolu. They're VERY similar. In fact, they're so similar that owning both is redundant. They do have differences though, and there are certain aspects of each that I prefer over the other.

    I'm hesitant to buy oud Absolu , when I have a few bottles of the clear sides reform. And no, it's not that different from the all brown OG, I have a decant, they are 90 % the same.

    Vintage is king. When I first bought M7OA, first thing that i disliked was the addition of the patchouli. And it's just overall a screechy, brighter version of the dark and smooth original. However the overall idea is the same, and if you absolutely cannot get the original, M7OA will do.

    PS: what the hell is wrong with fragrantica showing that so many people think M7 smells like Black Afgano? Is this some kind if inside joke, like when they had secretions Magnifique "smells similar to" 1 Million?
