If you find the original Cristobal too heavy or harsh maybe this version is for you. this is an elegant creamy ambery citrucy somewhat bitter fragrance i can only wear during FALL/WINTER.
I adore Cristobal so I had to try this one. I am so glad I did. It is perfect for the warmer months when you don't want to wear anyhting heavy or spicey. This does not really smell alot like the original, it's lighter a bit fruity. It smells wonderful. Get it you won't regret it.

"EAU DE CRISTOBAL" Eau de Toilette has nothing to do with the classic CRISTOBAL Eau de Toilette/Eau de Parfum. It is a complete new fragrance by Balenciaga. Hard-to-find and not very well-known. I think you can buy it in France only.
"Eau de Cristobal"-Eau de Toilette is a reinterpretation of the classic Cristobal fragrance. Modern, very fruity, delicious and sensual. Uncomplicated and pleasant.
Osmoz description in French:
Top note : bergamote, feuilles de rhubarbe, cassis, mandarine.
Middle note : freesia jaune, pivoine, jasmin, ylang.
Base note : ambre, fève tonka, santal, vanille.
For my nose same modern (!)olfactive family like Burberry Brit, Eternity Moment, and Lovely. Not too unique but a beautiful, youthful fragrance for many occasions. Very good lasting-power and the top note is breathtaking "sharp", but if you like the scent, this is a plus.
I don't quite understand why there is an Eau de Cristobal, and then Cristobal in Eau de Toilette... The original concentrations of Cristobal (parfum, EdT and EdP) are not too good on me, but this one is gorgeous! It has this citrusy ambery initial burst that lasts all throughout the composition. This seems like a "less serious" Cristobal, not quite as formal as the original. Probably a good choice for summer, or for those of us who don't wear the lovely original too well. So far I've only seen this in a 100ml bottle. A delicious scent.
