A wonderful Citrus & Oud combination... and a discontinued gem.
This is a real gem of a fragrance. They named it perfectly by calling it "M7 Fresh", and it really is like a fresher, lighter, summer version of M7. This was when Tom Ford was still in control with YSL, and he oversaw some of their best work in my opinion.

M7 Fresh opens up with beautifully fresh sour and tangy citrus, and this stays for a long time. What I love about it, is that it has a ginger note. It reminds me a lot of South-East Asian cuisine (specifically Vietnam). If you've ever had Vietnamese food (especially Vietnamese salad), this is what it reminds me of. Fresh lemon and sour grapefruit, with hot spicy ginger. It's a really beautiful combination. Yes, there is Oud (Agarwood) in here, but it's toned down. In the original M7 the Oud was syrupy and dominating... a darker note mixed with incense and burnt spices. Here it's in the background, mixing with the hot ginger to give it a tangy, medicinal aspect (some people say like traditional Chinese medicine).

I feel that if the original M7 is like the smell inside an old Asian Buddhist Temple, this is the smell inside a Vietnamese kitchen (preparing lunch or breakfast), specifically the smell of fresh fruits and green salad components.

I really miss this fragrance, YSL discontinued a lot of the Tom Ford era stuff. But I feel that there is other similar fragrances out there if you want to experience this lost gem. It's basically a Citrus-Oud combination, with an emphasis on fresh Citrus rather than the smoky wood. To me it smells like Vietnam. I love it!

The first oud is never forgotten, that's M7. This is a marvel, fresh and warm, of mosses and roots, with an oud bearer that makes it unique.
