    Like this one. Intoduction to oud IMO. Perfect for fall and winter. Light mandarine orange, rose and a touch of patchouli. A touch of Amber in the drydown that last about 7 hours.

    It's not as potent as the vintage or 1st reform, but if you don't own either of those it's 100% worth owning a bottle of. The dry down in Absolu is like a caramel combined with a touch of incense.

    It's less powdery and less musky than the original M7, and of course less tenacious. I loved the original so it's a no brainer for me to love this one as it's a little fresher and more modern, and the Oud is a little more dominant, but it still has the original M7 DNA written all over it.

    It is very good. Not identical to the original or the reformulation, but good enough where I would recommend getting this one rather than spending too much trying to get the earlier versions.
    Current Spring Favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    5. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Javanese Patchouli
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver EDP
    9. Creed - Green Valley
    10. Parfumerie Generale - Grand Siecle Intense 7.1

    It's lovely. I bought it for my partner and he likes it so much that he wears it most days. It's great on him. He leaves a gorgeous trail in the morning.

    Is good reformulation. Worthy of carrying the M7 name.

    It's a good reformulation but I wasn't impressed. M7OA is much weaker and I didn't get the tenacity that I expected from it.
    I own vintage M7 and don't really wear it. I like to smell it more from the sprayer. I wish that effect could be reached by the fragrance on my skin.

    Enjoyed it for the first hour until it faded to pretty much a skin scent.
