I find it to be pretty strong, but not overwhelming.
The closest fragrances I can think of, and the usual ones it is most often compared with, are Lapidus Pour Homme and Kouros.
It is less animalic and sweeter than Kouros.
Kouros is readily available, and I believe that the Lapidus can be found relatively cheaply. If you like those, and can imagine a blend of the two, then you'll probably like Balenciaga, which is most likely considerably more expensive.
