La Collection M7 Oud Absolu by Yves Saint Laurent

Mandarin, Patchouli, Labdanum, Myrrh, Agarwood.

Finally decided to pick up a bottle of Absolu. I've had the original release of M7 in my wardrobe for quite some time now and decided it was simply the right time to add this. Absolu comes 9 years after the release of Original M7 in 2002.

The purists have screamed it's not the same......it's not as good. True, it's not the same, but on me, it stays on point and pays tribute to the original. To be truthful, I find it a bit more versatile and wearable, although not as deep as its predecessor.




Still present is the cherry cough syrup quality, albeit lower in presence and perhaps better balanced. The listed notes work as one to pay homage to the extremely popular initial release. The volume is tuned down a notch or two as is the longevity. It does however remain a personal space scent for a good amount of time, so the 4 hours ( give or take a little ) that Absolu is noticeable to people in passing......coupled with the current price point......make M7 Absolu a strong consideration since you can simply reapply.

Sillage is average on me with longevity approximately 3-4 hours before morphing into a skin scent. Thumbs up from Aromi for YSL's M7 Oud Absolu. As always, a sample wear is recommended before purchase.
