From the thread title, I thought you were talking about Balenciaga Pour Homme. Although you didnt mention it, I always have to post when I see the name. Balenciaga is the fragrance that started my fragrance addiction. I thought it was a hobby at the time. Anyway Balenciaga remains in my collection and will always have a special place. Im just no longer crazy about it. Cristobal is very nice. I plan to buy it to complete the designers full name...Cristobal Balenciaga.
