Not to be confused with Cristobal Eau de Toilette (which I haven't tried yet), and which is listed elsewhere of having "fruity oriental top notes with lower notes of patchouli and sandalwood." I ordered sample of Cristobal on eBay and discovered the listing was incorrect when I received Eau de Cristobal instead. This is a common error on the net, so order with caution. The Eau de Cristobal turned out to be just lovely, a welcome eBay mistake. A soft, feminine floral with no screechy candied fruit, yet no overly lite "blue" water vibes. I usually prefer something woodsier, dirtier, but Eau de Cristobal is just the ticket if you are looking for a gentle, warm (yet not overly happy) knockout. Frangrance.net describes it as "freesia, jasmine, vanilla, fig, peony, bergamot, and patchouli." None of these notes stands out to me. The jasmine is there, but not overpowering. I don't get much vanilla, and like the jasmine, the peony is toned down. It's a bit powdery in the dry down, but still pleasant. Eau de Cristobal reminds me of some of the 80's oriental florals but with 21st century makeovers. A very harmonious mix. Hard to find, which makes it all the more desirable.
