    Default Bought a bottle of M7 oud absolu

    I owned the original in late 2002 it's been a long time but I do remember it well.
    The new version of M7 smells the same to me almost exactly the same.
    I'm impressed with the new version.
    It's a January '17 batch and performance is very good and the scent reminds me of how Tom Ford made some excellent fragrances for Gucci and YSL back in the day.
    YSL was niche back then but not anymore.
    Gorgeous scent definitely in my top ten.
    I thinks it's a bit better than DHI.
    They just don't make em like they used to.

    Very nice juice. Especially in the designer realm, your last statement is true. The new Elixir being a notable exception.

    It's definitely a phenomenal fragrance, forget I have it. Might have to wear it tomorrow now. I associate this one with Silentrich, as it was one of his favorites - in fact, I sent him a nice 10 ml decant of it in a trade before he passed, I'm glad to know he got to enjoy it.

    As for the comparison.. personally I think it's more oud heavy and less of the cherry vibe than the original, the oud in both is very smooth though. I got my bottle for around $35 during a sale many years back, which I had stocked up.

    I'm glad you like it too!
    Maybe the original was a bit stronger I really can't remember.

    Do you all notice any difference between Oud Absolu's black bottle and current clear glass bottle?

    Mine is the clear bottle. Looks nice and describes the notes on the side with the year of release. Nice touch.

    Thanks! I just realized that the oud absolu is sweeter in the dry down compared to the vintage.

    I did also find them similar. Very nice fragrance. Might need to add at least a decant of it. Congrats!
