Old news? Maybe. Oh well.

First, the good news: the new formulation of Cristalle is good. Now the bad: it isn't exactly Cristalle. The galbanum-rich top chord is fine if you can look past the blatant lack of citrus, and then it skips right to the mushroom dry down that modern chypres (Odalisque et. al) are beginning to converge upon. The Diorella-like abstract floral section has been spliced out. All said, the new thing is good, but just that: a new thing.
