    I've tried 2 of the Adolfo Dominguez fragrances. Acqua de Sandalo was quite nice.

    Balenciaga was sold some years ago - the licence is now held by Coty (Ithink).
    Cristobal was launched before the sale.

    I own Cristobal Homme by Balenciaga - great classic fragrance IMO.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Cristobal is very similar to Joop!
    A bit smoother and tolerable

    No experience with Balenciaga, but AD is quite nice, no frills, barbershop cologne.

    True statement. Not quite as cloying. Also reminds me of Rochas Man and Jil Sander Background.
