    Default Cristobal - can anyone tell me about this?

    I bought Mr Hebe Cristobal pour homme, and it's bewitching. I'm wondering about trying the women's version, but the notes look quite different. I'm getting married in the autumn, and am starting to wonder about what scent to wear, it would be lovely to have two scents that worked together for that day. Is it lovely?

    Congratulations about getting married soon!

    Cristobal is lovely- it's a warm, Oriental that opens similarly to Opium on me and dries down to a soft, warm, spicy Oriental. Since I already have Opium and Coco and Casmir and a slew of other Orientals, I never bothered to get Cristobal, because it is similar to most spicy Orientals. However, that doesn't mean it isn't a wonderful fragrance in its own right. The bottle is lovely too.

    Hope you find the right fragrance for your special day!

    I get sweet fig, and warm vanilla, woods and musks. Not spicy to my nose, but something has to be really spicy to stay spicy on my skin. I think it's warm and fuzzy and comforting. It would be great for a fall wedding.
