As it was envisioned by designers, The One is a fragrance for an exceptional woman who instantly draws attention, not only with her looks, but also with her manners, pose and inner world. This fragrance, like all of the fragrances of D&G house, is a 'fragrance with character', special and alluring. Its oriental floral-fruity composition is very warm and sensual with powdery vanilla trace. The color of the fragrance perfectly matches its tone.

The composition opens with softly fresh mandarin, bergamot, litchi and peach. The heart is thin and balmy, with the notes of jasmine, lily of the valley and white lily which graciously intertwine with the fruity touch of plum. The woodsy-powdery base is created of vetiver root, amber, musk and vanilla. The One was created in 2006.

The One Fragrance Reviews

This is a powdery, creamy, sweet, airy floral. I know it says vanilla, but I don't really smell it. The bottle is classy, maybe a little too clunky. I liked wearing it in the summer so it is not overwhelming. It is a like, but not a love.

This fragrance starts creamy, but ends powdery. I don't get any citrus in this. It almost smells like an intense honey scent on me, but that's the litchi and the plum's transformation on my skin. It borders on being sickeningly sweet; a little of this goes a long way. I smell peach, litchi, but no orange, no bergamot.

As it progresses, I get powdery florals--but not in an overbearing or offensive way.

I don't think this fragrance is office friendly. It's more for night-time wear and dates... This fragrance may be a bit heady, so I appreciate that I've worn it in cooler temperatures (fall/autumn). I could see this being a bit much in hot and or humid weather.

It's a good, smooth, feminine fragrance... With a light chocolate, vanilla, and powder scent upon exit. I'm still trying to decide if I truly like this fragrance, or if I just reeeeeeeally want to like this fragrance.

I have a sample of this that I am still working on. I've been wearing it on and off for almost 2 weeks. It's...very vanilla on me. I love warm vanilla scents which this is, but it also pulls a lot more of the powdery scent out on my skin as well. I love that it is not a sweet scent. It almost makes me think of Dior Hypnotic Poison. I can see this being a perfect signature scent. It's very sensual and good for colder weather. It's a comfortable scent. It makes me want to wear big warm sweaters and enjoy crisp fall or winter air. I feel like this could be a beautiful fragrance, except I'm not 100% sold on the powdery note. Very feminine, sensual, and cozy. In no way does this smell cheap.

I can see why this is a great frag for a lot of people. I retry it lately, vanilla type scent among many in the market.
But for me its a dislike because it reminds me of a woman that was snob and bad manners and treated me horrible way, two faced. So this was her signature scent and i will never like it.
I appreciate Manifseto Ysl, Si Armani ,lately also My Name Trussardi .........all those from vanilla category. The one will never be the one for me. From D&G perfumes i say much more "i do" to Sicily edp.

I fell in love with this fragrance after I smelled it on my friend.
Unfortunately it is very different on me, too soft and I can not smell anything, just a touch of vanilla and white flowers.
Luckily it was my present, but don`t think I will purchase it after I run out.

The One is a beautiful fragrance. I consider it a classic staple in the Dolce & Gabbana collection of fragrances and I'm sitting here wondering why I have yet to repurchase it. I think one of the big reasons is the never ending flankers that are released of this scent, all these flankers just eat away at what I see is the credibility and the beauty of the original. Just let the original do all the talking for the brand- I say!

On my skin this is a warm and bright vanilla, or more so a sweet ripe peach that has been covered in creamy rich vanilla that sets off all kinds of sexiness on my skin. Bring in the lychee and you have a very sweet and fruity vanilla fragrance which is incredibly warm and not something I would attempt to wear in Spring/Summer because on my skin it is quite heavy and potent. The Amber provides further warmth and depth but so does the Plum note when it appears on my skin- it's quite sensual in a way and it adds more character to the fragrance, it almost gives it a bit of a jammy quality on my skin. I don't get any floral notes but I do pick up on the musk note and whilst on my skin it is quite subtle it's quite obvious how it adds to the fragrance and how it assists with the way it drys down on my skin- which is just a very warm musky vanilla.

The One has fantastic lasting power and very persistent sillage, it projects so well that I've often felt a bit uncomfortable at times with the fear that I might have applied too much but who cares anyway- if people have a problem with my perfume then they can find another place to stand Haha!

Glorious...I usually do not like mainstream perfumes . When I find a mainstream perfume that I enjoy, I often like to tinker with it a bit. Usually that means bringing out my amateur set of accords and essential oils and adding a little this and a little that to create something that is akin to the original fragrance but tailored specifically for me. I know---complete sacrilege. That being said, this creamy little gem does not need much. Imagine a rich egg custard souffle made with the finest of madagascar vanilla and infused with jasmine then topped with delicate 24k gold flakes. I layered this perfume dessert over a cocoa base to intensify the powdery amber notes and provide a gilt frame to the jasmine and vanilla. It softened the overall thing into a whisper of metallic silk chiffon whereas before it was gold lame silk organza...it was... perfect.

It's a very classy fragrance it do not shout at you its too classy and sophisticated for that nothing cheap or common about it, but it's not shy either. It's powerful but quiet at the same time.
It's just beautiful, clean but not too clean, a very gentle and caressing wafts drifting in the air.
At this moment in time with the perfumes i have at the moment if I was only allowed to keep one this The One would be the One its just perfect

This fragrance is ok, it is unusual, powdery and soft. Nothing to go crazy over, I much prefer The One Desire. I'm glad I only bought a small bottle of The One, when that is all gone I won't be buying another bottle.

The One is a pretty, powdery, peachy vanilla that would wear well as the go-to vanilla in a perfume lovers' collection. Vanillas are a dime a dozen, it's true, but the peach here adds a little something to an otherwise standard concoction, making it unique and familiar at the same time. For a solid, warm vanilla I prefer YSL's Cinema which has been growing in my estimation lately, but this is in the same vein and preference is an unpredictable critic.

My only complaint is that the vanilla in this wafts synthetic sometimes, though not as loudly as in some other perfumes, which has the potential to become cloying and slightly nauseating.

To its credit, its longevity is impressive, once lasting through a room cleaning and a bubble bath.

I've been wearing this fragrance for almost 7 years. I can still remember sampling it for the first time. It was pretty much love at first spritz... I wore it while I was shopping and a half hour later I was at the counter getting the largest bottle they had. There is something really special about this scent. The name and bottle are very fitting. It is very classically beautiful but with a few pleasant surprises. When you first apply, you get a feeling like you just stepped out of a bath of precious oils. Powdery golden-amber goodness. When it starts to settle it surprises you because what you think is floral coming through ends up being a harvest of mandarin and plum and definitely some lychee fruit, which ads a balancing sweet femininity. It's sexy, it layers and lingers so beautifully, and a little goes a long way.

**I wanted to add... this scent is wistfully reminiscent of Loves Baby Soft perfume! I don't know if any of you remember it or know what I'm talking about? My mom bought it for me and my sister every year for christmas when we were little. This scent makes me feel like that sweet girl again, but all grown up. So lovable :))

I can't believe I haven't tried this baby sooner.

It's an opulent, classy fragrance for women, and I think it is versatile if you need to go from work to after-work occasions.

It's fruity notes aren't cheap smelling as sometimes they can be, nor do they smell too "young" - it's a fragrance for someone who wants something relaxed but pretty, elegant but not complex.

It's definitely a balmy, smooth smell and it's very pleasant. An unusual approach to vanilla, which I enjoy.

This is a beautiful perfume! Peachy and floral, with a gorgeous vanilla/amber background. Despite the seeming heaviness of those notes it manages to feel fresh and clean. It's one of the few perfumes I have that I think I could wear both during the day and at night.

On me this lasted about eight hours. In that time it only got better as it developed on my skin; this is one that melts in and smells natural, instead of a perfume sitting on top. This is a must-try for peach lovers!

This is a fine, expensive scent. There is nothing offensive about it. I could see it being worn by a woman on her wedding day. It is reminiscent of an expensive wedding cake frosting, that is not the most memorable frosting you have ever had, but that no one could call cheap. I could see it being worn by a classy woman on her wedding day, and never being worn again. It is a fragrance that is completely inoffensive, and completely unremarkable.

Absolutely adore this fragrance.

Smelled it first on a close friend in London, who always has the best perfumes.

I was thrilled when a new friend eventually bought me a bottle in NYC.

Elegance, class, drinking champagne in Mayfair or high afternoon tea.

Somehow this gem got left behind when I moved back to London but how I miss it! Can't wait to be able to afford a bottle :)

An oriental, warm, woody but rich at the same time type of scent. I can detect the peach and orange in this. (and apricot, for some reason)

This really gives me a headache and is quite cloying actually. I have a small sample, and every time I apply a couple of dabs I instantly have the urge to wash it off. It smells "off" to me.

On the other hand it is quite a sensual scent, probably for brutal winter months and cosy nights in in front of the fire with your lover.

If I was a woman I personally wouldn't wear this in summer or hot days really. Because to me this is a very strong fragrance. But it's not strong in a bad way. I would wear L'eau The One since it is an EDT on warmer days. Because the hotter the day, the heavier a scent is.

The One is a warm, cozy, inoffensive, floral-fruity-oriental eau de parfum that I think could work for any woman or occasion. A fruity perfume for those who don't like fruity scents. A floral for those who don't like florals. An oriental for those new to that bewitching world. Sweet but not a day in a candy shop. Woodsy without being masculine. Powdery while remaining youthful. Fun and yet mature.

I know that the term 'safe' is often used disparagingly about fragrances, but for this one, I honestly believe it's a testament to its quality craftsmanship.

This is warm sticky syrup covered peaches and amber. It smells so enveloping and delicious. I especially love it when the weather is warm and there is a slight breeze and I can literally feel the scent wafting up and around my face from my neck. This perfume takes my brain to an entirely different place and it works it's magic on men too. I have to give up my arm quite often to be sniffed, only to try and take it back and be told "I'm not done. Hold on" and be sniffed some more. I am in love with this fragrance and it loves me back.

LOVE this! I love the soft, sexy peach and the warm amber and vanilla. I had used this exclusively in cooler months, but I was in the mood for it today in July. My husband went crazy for it! He loves this on me and I love it on myself. It's a bit spicy-sweet with some soft fruitiness. I don't really get much floral out of it. Such a nice fragrance. I just have a small mini of it, but will definitely purchase a large size when it runs out. A hit!

Caveat: If you don't like sweet scents, you will probably not like this one.

Also, if anyone smelled the Jovan Satisfaction that came out a few years ago, it's very similar.

Hey, I just had to write a note that I had the original The One (that first came out in 2006). Last week I tried on The One 2014 version and they are not the same. Somehow I noticed that it's been watered down or something. Anyone else noticed the change? Just a heads up.

Delicious. Strong orange with tender peach skin, a drizzle of litchi juice sprinkled all over this fragrance which has a background of light white flowers, and warm, soft vetiver hints popping out during wear. Lovely easy to wear yet complex enough fragrance, with a vivid centre theme of oranges. Brilliant staying power, well over 8 hours, but never offensive. Sweet with a twist and a lot of character! Good for everyday use, but sure not to be overlooked on special occasions.

People mostly voted it for fall season, but I prefer to wear it in spring and sometimes in summer nights.

I don't know why, but couldn't wear The One in winter; it was not smelling nice at all, I was feeling it more stronger and the smell was giving me the feeling of 'old lady like' as some people mentioned. I don't get this feeling when I wear it in spring and summer, it's weird. maybe it's fruity sweet, that's why..

Smells like peach cobbler, it's yummy.

It's a very sweet and classy perfume, I like it very much. Makes me feel warm, cozy and womanly.
I can see me reaching more for this come autumn/winter time.

Longevity is an issue though, which is a shame. Perfect for layering.

I do not like vanilla as the star in a perfume and I especially would not buy and wear such a perfume either! I DO like vanilla, but only as a backup singer in a perfume, or a body lotion to give a nice base to other perfumes, But this was an exception. I smelled this and was surprised with joyful wide eyes.

Its not a candy sweet vanilla, yuck, this one is a boozy, thick, rich, syrupy, smokey, a bit spiced vanilla with hints of dark fruit and a dash of powder. I am a whiskey and scotch lover, so this smell reminds me of a nice glass of it. I imagine an elegant woman wearing this perfume in a cigar lounge with a bunch of other men drinking scotch, and she's keeping up with the guys but still being very feminine and lady like while the men marveling over her. I wear this in fall/winter, cool nights, and going out.

This was a hand-me-down from my sister who gets sick of scents very quickly. I think she needs her head read as I wouldn't hand this over if my life depended on it!!!

I'm not a huge D & G fan (clothes included), but this is sooooo lovely. It is so very individual - I can't say I have smelt anything that comes even close to it.

Upon spraying I get a lovely waft of lychee and peach which seems to last all day. On the dry down I tend get a more musky scent.

This beauty will remain with me to eternity.

Fruity notes on initial spray and dries down to a powdery vanilla with warm traces of amber and musk on my skin. I do really like it and find it to be like a cozy comforting sweater. IMO It's a safe option for the office or daily use and wouldn't offend anyone's nose.

This is a very pleasant, sophisticated, and warm scent. I put it on early this morning and have enjoyed it all day long both indoors and out. I don"t smell it constantly, but I do get pleasant whiffs on and off throughout the day. It stays close to the skin which makes it great for intimate moments. I enjoy the litchi and plum and the dry down is warm and sensuous making it easy to wear day after day.

This screams sexy, sexy, sexy! My friend had it, and it smelled AMAZING on her. But I couldn't wear it. You have to have it in you to wear this perfume, otherwise it will wear you. I felt like a fraud, like a pretender when putting it on, because it didn't resonate with my personality. On its own, this is a beautiful, feminine scent, but if you're not a kind of girl/woman who is confident in her sexuality and feel shy to express it - buy it, but wear it for your significant other behind closed doors. If you have confidence to wear it, and like the attention that goes along with your personality- go for it. Confidence, sexiness, charm, charisma, girl or a woman sticking out of the crowd, that is D&G One.

I just realized I still had this tucked away. Used it 2 years ago and it seemed "off" to me so I stopped using it. (I think it was my body chemistry changing, in my late 40's). Now I have used it for the last few days and I love it again. Soft, feminine and a tiny bit powdery. Great for work. I rekindled a friendship, and I love it!

And this smells like a fragrance from when I was a kid. I wish I knew which one... I think I've smelled something very similar on one of my relatives.
I just get that déjà-vu feeling sometimes when I wear it. But can't really put my finger on when and wear! Oh well...

Hm, I find this one quite pleasing, which is something I haven't said about D&G for a good long while. Yes, I am bitter still about them discontinuing D&G for women then bringing it back with a weaker formulation *shakes fist at them* so in hopes they would captivate me again, I tend to try out their new fragrances soon as they come out.

When I tried this, I must say it brought up thoughts like ghosts of vintage perfumes, but I detected something synthetic about it and it brought me back to the present time. It is neither complex nor linear but somewhere in between. The drydown is what I liked the most about this fragrance. I definitely enjoy the described thin and balmy heart and the creamy vanilla notes gave the fragrance romance, the amber gave it depth and the powder, comfort.

This would be something I would probably purchase for a friend that was into steampunk...or at least that is the image that came to my head when I ask myself the question "What kind of woman/man/situation/location comes to mind with this?" (a habit I often enjoy). However, this fragrance and I are no match for each other. I like the fragrance in the bottle itself, but I prefer something a little more dynamic to work with my body chemistry and this fragrance smelled a little too homely on me.

Still an interesting perfume that carries the spirit of the past while taking a nice direction into a new era.

This is my girlfriends FIRST oriental flower. Or first second perfume. Almost.
She occasionally wears Clean-Outdoor shower fresh,but thats it.
I´ve tryed to open up her eyes to the world of perfumes, but its pretty hard if you have little or no interest in the subject.
We both tryed this on at the store the other day and -BAM- she became even more beautiful then she already is. She turned into a trip to Paris and back.
So i bought it to her the next day.

Since she´s not That interested in perfumes, I was really happy to find that she at least liked it, even Very much :)!

Warm vanilla with a clear presence of Jasmine.
I love it on her.
Superlonglasting!

I'm all for sweet fragrances, but unfortunately this fragrance just seemed too sweet for me.

The opening although pretty fruits, is a little too much like sticky candies overloaded with sugar. Due to this sweetness I would say that The One is a relatively young and flirtatious scent, not something to be taken seriously.

It does mellow into a warm and pleasant oriental floral, the jasmine, lily and plum are pretty and certainly wearable, the most pleasant aspect of this fragrance so far.

The drydown isn't bad either, the vanilla brings back an element of syrupy sweetness which made me cringe at first but it was no where near as bad as I thought it would be. I'll give credit to this fragrance for its excellent sillage and lasting power and its sensuality and creaminess.

I used to love this perfume, but not anymore (at least not on myself). I smelled it on somebody else and I had to try it on. I eventually bought it for myself, but ever since it's just been in my drawer (getting old, almost unused). Funny how preferences change.

UPDATE: So a good friend of mine was wearing this one day, and I complemented how she smelled as it was truly amazing and so much deeper than I can remember it. I asked her what fragrance it was and she said the Rollerball of The One" by D&G. When she told me I almost fell on the floor, because it was so different on her than on me. It was beautiful on her. So skin chemistry is really important in how a frag. smells. I still love this on others!

This is the first negative review I'll do.

Got this perfume as a birthday gift when it was launched. I never used it actually because I couldn't stand the scent.

It's way too sweet and for that not even close to elegance... I don't want to scare people around me by popping out evolved by a cloud of cheap sweet candies...

It gives me headaches :-( I can recognise it when crossing people wearing at stores or streets. I'll leave the lift if someone is in it wearing it!

ACTUAL: I've sent my bottle to my sister! I don't have it anymore!

Got given a full 75ml bottle of this fragrance today and got to say, this is a gorgeous scent! I'm a sucker for vanilla based fragrances so this one is just incredible! The fruit notes are quite powerful, especially the Litchi. I get the Litchi and a very strong vanilla when I first apply!

After a while, I get a load of amber, this is good as I love the warmth that amber gives. There is also a powdery feel to this fragrance, I don't usually like powdery scents but this one really does work, but more towards the end it is pretty much just vanilla and amber, so this is a very sexy, sultry goodbye.

The only place I can fault this fragrance is the sillage. This fragrance has NO projection what so ever, no one can smell it on me unless they come close! The longevity is good, not amazing, but it holds for a good 5-6 hours. I would not pay the full retail as this does not have the power that the price tag leads you to think.

But overall it is a gorgeous scent, with a lovely bottle, but not the power I was expecting. Would I buy it again? Only if I can get it at a VERY good price!

I bought this keeping my expectations high.... but it sadly disappointed me :( I can not detect ANY fruity hints! No litchi , no peach, NOT AT ALL vanilla (vanilla lover), no amber.... ! Dont know why i disliked it sooo much, to me it smells like tea, it has a very very dry smell that brings me down and makes me feel sick! Too heavy, ( good longevity )and not at all floral .... i finally gave it to my sister, and she loved it. Nice bottle though.

I only tried this on paper during a marathon sniff test the other day, but some of the accords--I'm guessing the peach, musk, and aldehydes?--combined into a used urine cake kinda thing for me. I was too scared to try it on the prime real estate remaining on my arms after that. Has anyone else gotten this on paper and did it also occur on skin?

This one is becoming one of those legendary perfumes for sure. So many people love it. And the reason for that is that sexy warm musky vanilla peach scent that transforms girls into a really sexy ladies. I don't wear it because it's one of my friends signature fragrances and I don't like sharing the same signature as my friends. But it smells amazing on her, and I've tried on myself and it wasn't as good as on her, but still I liked it a lot. If you don't have your signature fragrance yet, maybe The One is the one.

This is the perfume you would want to wear if you are going to be out partying 2 days straight & still want to feel/smell nice & alluring [when you haven't had the chance to shower because this will last]
I don't really notice the fruityness but it's a modern warm gentle vanilla. A+ for longetivity & sillage! I don't know if it was my mood from the perfume or if the scent is that irresistable, my crush and then some were talking to me all night.. I don't know if they reformulate it? but i got mine from my mother who bought it in 2007. i wouldn't mind having the flankers of this perfume based on this quality, tbh.

My friend bought this perfume for my birthday and I instantly fell in love.
It has this nice and modern scent. This is clearly for the modern sexy women.

It is one of my signature perfumes.

And I totally agree with the description of The One:
"The One is a fragrance for an exceptional woman who instantly draws attention, not only with her looks, but also with her manners, pose and inner world."

When I first smelled this in store I was hit by a strange wave of nostalgia, but could not figure out exactly why. But I was smitten by the warmth of this scent, it really goes very vanilla and musk on me, but, not in a sick sweet way, rather in a very sexy way!
I purchased a bottle and my first time wearing it around my mother, she asked what I was wearing, when I replied The One, she laughed and said it was all she wore a few years ago. That explains the nostalgia!
Then, I wore it for a night out with my man, and before we even left the house, his nose was glued to my neck and he demanded to know what smelled so intoxicatingly delicious. I have NEVER gotten such a positive response to a perfume from him. He couldn't stop trying to get a whiff of me all night!
So all at once I feel comforted by my youth and ravishingly sexy.
I saw in a few reviews that this isn't so suitable for someone my age (I am 20) but I think if you are a bold woman, and don't mind smelling like something other than Juicy and Flowerbomb, give this one a go!
I also saw in a few reviews that this reminds people of Hypnotic Poison and I will vouch for that! I adore that scent as well.
But this definitely is The One for me.

A soft fruity-floral with a sweet, warm, powdery drydown.
It slightly reminds me of Allure: feminine, sweet, cozy and sexy.
The staying power isn't very strong, al least on my skin. (I recommend the body lotion too, delicious).
I like it but I find a little too sweet for my tastes.

I've had a mini of EDP for quite some time, and I knew I liked it ok because I kept it rather than gifting it, but I couldn't remember what it smelled like. I also received a sample of The One Desire EDP Intense so I decided to test and write a review. Firstly, on the open, I found The One to be extremely cloyingly sweet. It made me wince a little. Now, I enjoy many sweet fragrances, but I'm more of a floriental lady, so I need a little spice and complexity. I get no bergamot, and very little citrus. I do get tons of a very well rounded vanilla. Infact, this reminds me of Vanilla Fields, which I used to wear and love in when I was in college in the late 90's. I'm sure it's more complex than Vanilla Fields, but for the vast difference in the price tags, if The One was a favorite I would certainly give Vanilla Fields a go as an affordable substitute. I notice that these are made by Procter and Gamble. Now, they are a company who produces good household products, but they are also a money producing machine and I would imagine that the highest quality ingredients may be substituted by chemical ones in these perfumes. That may be why they don't really resonate with me. I smell once and I say, "oh that's not bad" but I can never remember them, and they just seem a bit generic to me. On the dry down of The One I still get tons of vanilla sweetness, but I also get powdery musk. And the more cloying fruit notes, like cloying peach and plum, not juicy ripe but chemical. On the open The One Desire is pretty much the same, maybe even stronger. But on the dry down I get a very nice floral (I can't identify which floral) and much less vanilla. Again, nice, but kind of generic.

Very golden packaging and the perfume itself is more suitable for golden ages.
I can't imagine anyone under 45 wearing it.
It's quite warm scent full of vanilla and amber. Not sweet at all.
Sophisticated and elegant in a mature way.
I am not a fan of it just now, maybe someday.

I bought this today, and I love it. Reminds me very much of Hanae Mori Butterfly. Very vanilla and soft, with a woody and musky undertone. I do wish I could smell a little bit more peach in there for a nice fruity punch. I think this is so feminine and good for day and night. Lovely!

this is one of those perfums that makes me wanna smell my wrists eternally everytime I use it. It's so yummy. It is sweet but not in a playful way, more in a sexy way, it's just so addictive. Like hey, I smell like all these amazing flowers tied up in a bouquet with a vanilla ribbon beside a fruit basket. First time I smelled it I thought "I want to smell like that, it is amazing".

This is one of my absolute favorite vanillas. Soft, warm and with a hint if fruity sparkle to lift it up and add a touch of class. Vanillas can be unpredictable on me but this one that does not turn cloying or sickeningly sweet on my skin. Just powdery soft deliciousness.

On me this is a classy vanilla that smells ladylike and elegant rather than girly and young

After some research on fragrantica... and a couple of test days.. I settled on The One as my new winter/holiday scent.

Dear hubby bought me the 1.6 oz perfume for Christmas, and it is settling in nicely. This is a big switch for me as i have been a Light Blue gal for quite some time. On me The One is a sexy, vanilla, warm and playful scent with good depth...and so far everyone has liked it on me. in addition, dear step-daughter got me a sampler that included: Viva La Juicy, See by Chloe, Flora by Gucci, Viva La Juicy, Marc Jacobs' DOT, and Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb.

The One comes out ahead of all of the samples, thankfully!. However DOT and Flowerbomb also won some points. DOT was a nice scent on my stepdaughter. None of us had very positive impressions of the other in the sample set.

Its a peaceful and fragrant holiday here today, and I am glad I found this site!

This review is for the Rollerball....I reviewed the spray version of The One awhile back, I love it but have to go VERY lightly with it or I get a huge headache. I bought the rollerball yesterday at Ulta for $25.00. I always at least test the rollerball version of the perfumes I like because they tend to smell stronger or different due to the oils in the rollerballs, for example, I love Pink Sugar, the spray iis a nice rich not overly sweet vanilla and cream on me but the rollerball is even richer and warmer. The rollerball of The One is amazingly not as strong on me as the spray but lasts exactly as long as the spray does on me (12 plus hours!), the scent itself is pretty much an exact duplicate, which is nice. the sillage is the same as the spray too, close to the skin but you can catch whiffs throughout the day. All in all, I like the rollerball better as it is very easy to apply just a smidge and not go overboard into headache land. ;0)

This is sublime and hard to describe. It's a beautifully blended floriental with smooth apricot and vanilla touches. I believe the apricot gives it its fruitiness without smelling juvenile or cheap.

I've been looking for an elegant vanilla scent for quite some time. I use to wear Aquolina Pink Sugar in my junior high days, and I wanted something classier. This definitely fits that profile. Very warm and inviting, but has that pretentious air about it. I couldn't stop smelling myself after my visit to Macy's this Black Friday. The one thing that I will say is that this is a warm, sensuous vanilla, while Aquolina is sharp and biting.

I gave this fragrance another shot at Ulta (I always try to smell fragrances on two different occasions before I buy). I still liked it but when I asked one of my guy friends what he thought, he said I smelled like play dough.

Now I can't stop smelling play dough every time I wear this. Definitely won't be purchasing.


EDIT: I went back to Ulta to smell it again and yes, it still smells like Playdough.

This fragrance is a gem! it is so bold but not in a bad and overly strong way. It begins with a very strong fruity and floral smell of mandarines and peach. Then, it calms down slightly with a warm vanilla, plum, and jasmine. VERY VERY NICE! Excellent longevity (10+ hours) and moderate sillage.... LOVE!

I actually love this fragrance as much as I love Hypnose (my signature), they both smell quite similar...sweet, creamy delicious vanilla tinged with soft white florals and juicy fruits, on a clean vetiver base. The difference is slight, Hypnose is abit crisper, 'cooler', more sparkling and linear...The One is warmer, more opulent, peachy and cozy...like the difference between white gold and yellow gold. But to the average nose, one could be very easily mistaken for the other, especially if you're smelling it off somebody. The reason why I chose Hypnose over this scent is 1) I found Hypnose first, 2) The One is much more popular than Hypnose in my area, so I prefer the less popular option. But I might still end up getting a small bottle of The One very soon.

PS. Johansson is the perfect face for this fragrance. This smells cuddly, yummy (but in a chic and sensual manner), and just straight-out loveable. Like a sweet-spoken, beautiful girl next door. Though she is stunning, Bundchen is far too sleek, sharp and striking for it.

Mixed feelings about this one. I'm not a big fan of its top notes - they are too citrussy for me. But when I got to the middle notes of lily-of-the-valley and jasmine, I stared to seriously like it. And them amazing vanilla and musk at the bottom - loved it! Small bottle for me, please.

Oh no. From the raving reviews I was expecting something completely different. I don't know what but not this. This smells like a perfume I once got off a very nice gentleman in a stall of "non-branded" perfumes. You know the ones for a tenner in funny bottles that "smell like".
I was cold and waiting for my boss, he felt sorry for me and I really wanted to like it since it was gifted to me out of pure kindness.
But no. I ended up spraying it in my bathroom as a freshener and eventually gifted away more than half the 100ml bottle to a friend who thought it smelled ok enough.

Fast forward to yesterday when i tried this on and thought, no friggin way. Is this it? My bathroom spray? Eeeeeeek. For this kind of money? Bottle is lovely. The juice? No comment.

I first smelled this in a magazine add and felt the need to test it. I purchased a purse size and instantly fell in love with it.
The One smells like this: It starts out fairly citrusy on me (first 5 mins) but then quickly mellows into some warmish vanilla/honey with citrus (even though the notes do not say honey I smell honey). After about 30 mins I begin to smell this intense soapy scent that is just amazing and then instantly makes its way into a warm soapy jasmine scent with vanilla. The ending is the most beautiful warm amber musk that lingers at the pulse points with just a hint of the floral. I do not smell any fruit other than the citrus in the beginning. Its all warmth/vanilla/musk on me.
The One feels like this: mature and classy (not in a mature/grandma way) but smells like that beautiful 35-40 something woman that you see in a high-end department store, a professional, perfectly dressed in heels and an alluring suit buying whatever she wants; a present day Monroe; money is no object to her, but she is totally approachable and engages everyone around her; you only wish you could be her in another life. This scent just says class and beauty. Just a lovely scent.

The One is a bold floral musk. I really love the way it is dense and fresh at the same time. One bottle will last you a very long time, probably even after it is discontinued, because you actually only need one spray. And it stays with you all day. I like to wear it to work. It's my "power" perfume.

I remember a couple of years ago I was walking around the perfume department at Macy's and I was like, "what is the amazing smell!" I tried smelling some testers but I couldn't figure out which one it was and not even the lady at the counter could tell me what I was smelling. I wanted to know what it was it was driving me nuts! Luckily, my older sister came up and I told her about my dilemma and she happily replied with the name D&G The One. She owned it already! So I quickly got a sample. I couldn't afford it at the time so to my delight my sister purchased it for me as a Christmas present. I only use it on special occassions because I don't want to waste it, but it is delicious!!

Does anyone else think this perfume smells like skittles? Anyone?

Not that that puts me off, this scent is highly sentimental to me (everyone has a perfume that brings back memories!) and it is powerful without being overpowering - just enough lingers in the air to get you noticed.

The beauty of this perfume is it has a fruity tinge but it is not another fruit-bomb celebrity perfume, it's a lot more sophisticated than teeny bopper.

I would also recommend this scent for first timers starting their perfume collection!

I got a sample of this. The vial had leaked a bit and smelled really nice.
Though, when wearing it, I get two distinct scents : the sweet, fruity, soapy vanilla on the one hand, and the harsh, dirty musk on the other hand.
This is what most musky perfumes tend to do on me, sadly. Staying power and sillage were good, though, and I can see why some love it.

This was my signature perfume when I was 20 or so for some time. When I was almost done with the second bottle I bought Dior Addict,Gucci Eau de Parfum II and passed the bottle to my mom. Whenever I smell this scent I like it because a really good work was done here but it is just too sweet for my taste...now that I am 26. I still love the most those two mentioned above and I am really looking for something that would catch my nose like Gucci eau de parfum II does. If any ideas of new perfume to get post me a message.

This perfume smells very creamy on me, and is almost overpowering, when first sprayed, the sweetness of the perfume is almost sickly on me, but once it has dried down it sort of loses its sweetness and becomes a beautiful, elegant, female scent.

Most of all I feel in this fragrance vanilla, peach, lychee, lily and mandarin notes. The vanilla note makes this fragrance pleasantly yummy. But the lychee note makes it childish a little bit, like the peach note makes it just a little but masculine.

I like this fragrance, but it's too popular. I prefer individuality. But it's really alluring warm fragrance. My favorite by this brand.

at first it comes off a little too sharp for me, but 30 minutes later and it is great. i get all vanilla with a side of peach. the vanilla is a rich vanilla. a full bodied vanilla. i think i also get a bit of bergamont which seems to cut the sweetness a bit. i think it really is great for daytime. totally wearable to work.

my husband likes it, but it doesnt stand out to him.

As a man, I can say that this is an alluring fragrance. The One is both sophisticated and inviting. There is a warmth about it that makes me repeatedly return for another sniff. I think it works well for quotidian activities, such as family time, work, and shopping cause it's not obtrusive. It's sexy, sweet, and floral with a smooth vanilla flavour.

The male counterpart of The One didn't work for me when I first tested it, but this involute, pleasant scent is winsome, ladies.

This is the epitome of a sexy, warm vanilla scent. I am in LOVE with Dolce & Gabbana's The One. I definitely smell the peach when I first spray this on, but it isn't overly sweet (probably due to the addition of bergamot). After that, it's creamy vanilla musk on me. This is such a warm scent and I adore wearing it!

I really like this. I would even say I am on the way to loving it! I got it earlier this year and tested it on a warm day and wasn't impressed at all. In fact, I considered putting it up for swap. I found it to be almost sickenly sweet. I tried it again on a cooler day and wow, what a difference!

On me, the vanilla is prominent but not overpowering. It's soft and feminine. It lasts for hours. I wore it last night while going out and this morning, I could still smell it. A truly lovely fragrance. I can see this quickly becoming one of my new favorites for fall. I highly recommend!

I liked the house of Dolce & Gabbana before The One came out, but after this, I became a FAN, with a capital F. I held off buying this for a long time because I thought it lacked something, but after testing it time and time again, I kept coming back to it, and I also bought The One Rose. The drydown is so feminine and elegant that I couldn't resist sniffing my wrists. It's sexy, elegant, and so well put together that I have a really hard time pulling apart any of the individual notes.

This has all the hallmarks of a signature scent, and this might have been it for me had I not discovered Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme, which I am completely in love with. It's a fragrance that has no trouble crossing all boundaries; it works in the evening as well as in the daytime, and it's beautiful in all seasons. I find that in each of the different seasons, one note of the composition shines. In winter, it's the warm base, while in the summer, it's the light top notes. It's so beautiful and I get a lot of compliments on it.

It smelled great with the plum/ peach notes with the hint of musk but it was bland. There wasn't last undertone that wrapped it all together.

I was so curious about this perfume, since almost all of you gave it such good reviews, I ordered a sample.
Well...I am impressed. It has a gorgeus smell! so very feminine! glamurous, elegant, delicate...so womanish!
I can't imagine a woman disliking this, it's enchanting!
Too bad it's a night perfume, I'd wear it during the day! :)) Oh well, I can purchase L'eau The One for daytime.
10/10 for me!

And Scarlett does such a lovely commercial for this perfume. She's a gorgeus woman.

This, is my perfect scent.

I add loves, and change signatures, but I never turn from The One. Considering the size of my collection in a state of perpetual growth, I know that this scent will forever remain in my favorites.

It is sexy, but not smutty, warm get cool, etc etc. For me, it is the perfect balance. The most striking notes are the bergamot and vanilla. I swear I can smell patchouli though...They are also my favorite notes. The One evokes the class of Chanel or Dior without the sense of un-attainability. By that, I mean the smell is something anyone can wear. It is ageless too, my younger sister in law, mother in law, and I all love it. It smells differently on all of us but gorgeous none the less.

What I love most, is the fact that it has that great quality. Fantastic silage, longevity, etc. The bottle is classy with a hefty weight. Yet, despite all the pretensions, the scent is surprisingly down to earth. I think its the mix that make me feel like a cuddly, classy temptress. (How weird of a combination is that?!) The price is high but not painfully so. It has a quality on par with Nina Ricci in both bottle and scent.

If you're a floriental lover, who loves the smokey warmth, PLEASE try this. Its one of the few scents I have which remains unaffected by day, night, winter, or summer.

I usually have at least SOMETHING negative to say in my reviews because I try to be as openly honest as possible. Yet, in this instance, I am left with nothing. Even the price is reasonable for the quality you get. This, is a standalone classic easy.

What is most unique is the versatile use. When I can't find anything else that compliments where I'm going or what I'm wearing, for some reason, The One always seems to pick up the slack.

To sum it up: I don't have any which are a stand alone favourite in my collection. All seem to have SOME weak point. Yet The One remains the only exception to all rules.

Ew..even I'm disgusted by how glowing my review is...Couldn't you just puke!? I swear I'm not a D&G promoter..really..>.<..

Luxurious, sexy and classy.

It reminded me of dior's hypnotic poison at first (which, by the way, I dont like) but the vanilla isn't as obnoxious. It's also more floral than hp and a lot softer.

I love this perfume. I'd wear it on a date or if i was trying to impress someone. Definitely a nighttime and/or winter scent.

I received this little number today and here is my impression. I love the bottle it's heavy, stout and attractive. I sprayed it and I really do enjoy the scent. I don't know if my nose is aging and losing it's senses but the lasting power seems average. Not terrible or short lived just not ultra strong or long lasting. It goes on nice and smooth and fades out to a lovely gentle fragrance. One thing for me that I have noticed from other Dolce fragrances it that it becomes powdery. Powdery scent's do not offend me but my chemistry can make a frag turn that way. Some had mentioned this has similarities to Guess Seductive and for me I don't notice any at all. This could make a great summer or fall scent. I own the EDP for record. I wonder if the EDT would have any staying power? Anyhow if you are able to get "The One" at a reasonable price I would certainly suggest trying it.

Update: Loving it even more now. I sprayed it in the morning and could still smell it on my arm in the evening. This has been upgraded to my favorites.

I'm with ferenique. I thought I liked this at first; enough to spray it on my wrist and take it home with me. Sadly it came out quite linear on me and after an hour or two it made me nauseous.
I will say this though... it has incredible lasting power! I scrubbed my wrist twice and I could still smell it!

I was lucky enough to receive two samples of this as extras in swaps! This is a great scent. Vanilla is definitely the strongest note, followed by peach, amber, and lily. It's warm and sweet with just a hint of spice without being overpowering. The fragrance is fairly linear, with the exception that the peach slowly fades throughout the drydown. This would be a good fragrance for a date night-maybe not a super fancy date night, but a date nonetheless. Dab a little behind your ears and under your jawline and your honey won't be able to stay away! I'll have to purchase a full bottle of this soon.

TheOne has a quality that every good scent should have, it is memorable. If you are looking for a summer beach scent, do not forget to check this one. Others say it is more fall/winter but I disagree. It has a very sunny vibe and reminds me strongly of Nuxe Huile prodigieux, a dry bodyoil with cult status in France. The scent of the oil is very addictiv and I cannot imagine, that the nose behind The One was not aware of it.

I am rewriting my review as my first did not give this justice.
I received this as a gift when I did not have an appreciation for perfumes. With my recent endeavors, I have discovered The One again and have grown to love it.

This initial lychee note is one that I crave from D&G- it is just the right amount of sweetness complemented by the light citric addition and the warm peach. The plum seems to give the this fruity opening its maturity as the floral mix softly peers in- honestly I can't really seem to discern the heart clearly as the powdery fragranted base presents itself with a seductive powdery vanilla-amber beauty.

With that all said, this is a gorgeous and seductive modern fragrance for the evening. I seem to get two different strengths depending on the climate- in CA where it is primarily dry, I seem to get more of the base's powdery depth where as in humid IN I get more of the fruity top and heart notes. The silage is definitely moderate so I would be careful not to overspray. Typically it lasts around 6-8 hours on me, sometimes even longer. I remember that even after three hours of dance training it would still be going strong. I usually wear this in the winter but find myself enjoying it in the summer occasionally too.

D&G does not cloy with my chemistry and I think they did a wonderful job of the marketing. The bottle has a luxurious weight to it. The One indeed is the stunning seductive lady that is dressed with modern class, elegant poise, respectable manners, and careful prose. Both her youthful intelligence and cultured grace are alluring and to be revered. What I cannot depict accurately in words is splendidly modeled by Scarlett Johansson.

The flankers are also great, but all have the same classic base that I attribute to the original The One. I think this is a hit or miss fragrance but I love it completely. If this one has too heavier a vetiver note to you, try Lace the One which is essentially a fruitier vanilla from the original.

This really is an exquisite perfume. If I had to wear only one perfume for the rest of my life, it would be this one.

I saw the commercials for this when it first came out and I about flipped a lid when I saw the pricetag (it was my first expensive ish perfume)...but when I smelled it and wore it for the first time I knew it was worth it, I feel sooo feminine, elegant and rich when I wear it.

Anyways, this is a long lasting scent that I'd almost place in the same spot as classic Burberry because it has that peach/vanilla vibe that I love so much. It's been awhile since I last wore it since I usually use it during the fall and winter, but initially I get the peach/lychee with this and it dries down to this blissful powdery long lasting vanilla.

This is much longer lasting on me than Burberry, and while I really really like Burberry, I love The One.

This perfume smells like a fall scent to me. It last 3-4 hours on me. I don't know if my nose is playing tricks on me but I feel like The one smells like ginger and powder. It is weird but I do like it. I bought the 2.5 oz bottle and when it runs out I don't think I will repurchase.

Such a beautiful combination of peach, litchi and vanilla. Despite the promise of sticky sweetness, The One develops into a calm, vanilla-amber scent, managing to stay light, youthful and feminine, thanks to a touch of lily and perhaps muguet. Perfect for a coolish summer. Incidentally this smells quite similar to, or at least is in the same genre as, Lancome Hypnose. Craving a larger bottle!

I got a sample and I liked it a lot - it was warm, cosy. I bought it and in the bottle there was just something very different, more like frangrance for men, without the nice warm-sweet character. I could not bear it, I used half of the bottle and threw it away. I think it is dishonest. I feel cheated.

I tested this yesterday, and it's gone straight to my wanted list. The One is warm and creamy, the peaches and lychee are beautifully sweet. I like my vanilla in moderation, and this has the perfect amount for me. Wearing this brightened my day!

Lasted about 8 hours, sillage heavy at first. I would spray this lightly for the office. Great for cooler weather, day or night, I would find it too cloying during summer.

Edit: After trying The One on a few times, I've started to find it too sweet. I also find it too strong, it gets annoying after a couple of hours. I like it best when it's barely there.

The One has notes consisting of mandarin, peach, bergamot, lychee, jasmine, muguet, madonna lily, vanilla, amber, musk, vetiver, and plum.

The composition of this fragrance is very beautiful. All those fruits and flowers! Unfortunately it lacks personality and the sensuality it suggests. It lacks substance, depth and has no sillage. It is a pretty fragrance but with no sophistication and it doesn’t last. No second chance!

Received a sample at Macy's and have tried it a couple of times now. I get vanilla when first applied, then it fades off and is a warm fragrance that I could see being worn to the office or meetings without offending anyone. It seems to be lacking a deep note, it needs more depth somehow, I just notice a middle of the road scent as it wears. Nice and light

Edit: tried once more because I found myself drawn to the warmth of this fragrance. Sadly even after dousing myself I can't smell anything except a hint of vanilla a couple of hours later. Too bad they don't make The Intense One. I will save my money for another perfume.

all the wonderful reviews here and some people told me that it's their fave perfume made me really curious to try this.
when i had a chance to take a whiff my initial response was "whoa this smells expensive" but it's too light, almost indetectible on my nose, at least.
i waited for it to develop but then it just dissipates quickly. i was hoping for something stronger and have better lasting power.but to me it was forgettable.

I second AriesBoy's review.

I don't hate this - in fact it's very pretty. However, I don't understand the buzz around it. It's too safe for me and the word 'bland' probably would be a word I'd use to describe it. It's definitely lacking something, but like AriesBoy, I'm not sure what??

I will add that I may be a *little* but bias here. I have honestly never found a D&G fragrance that I'm crazy about...and I do keep looking because I love D&G when it comes to fashion, shoes, handbags etc...but I'm always disappointed.

I have a love-hate relationship with The One. I blame peach, as peach notes and my skin chemistry are a no-go (see Tresor etc etc). That being said, there are days that I wake up and cannot wait to spray myself with it and let its warm and balmy aroma envelope me like a mellow cloud. The first time I smelled it back in 2007 I thought: 'unremarkable'. Over the years it has quite grown on me and I appreciate it for what it is, I even own a full bottle! I would say that if it agrees with your body chemistry it's a 'safe' oriental vanilla, appropriate for day/office wear. As far as I'm concerned, it's definitely not 'the one and only' for me, but definitely 'a nice one' :) Just not for all the days of the year!

I thought this smelled like suntan lotion. My son thought it smelled like graham crackers. We are both correct. It is very light and lies close to the skin. Someone would have to hug you before they even smelled it....maybe that's just how my skin reacts to it. It does conjur up visions of dessert, like a creme brulee paired with a cup of peach tea. I don't know how to explain this better, but it smells both dusty and oily at the same time. It reminds me of the apricot baby oil from Burt's Bees. This reminds me of the earliest days of fall..it feels like you spent the day sunbathing and then remembered you had a job interview, so you just pop a tweed suit on right over your bikini. It's a bit disconcerting, but I do admire it.

I bougth it as soon as i smelled the top notes which are fruity and girlish but unfortunatelly the drydown is so different... i'm sorry to those who love it but it's just good and awful at the same time on my skin!!
I was thinking it is a classic d&G, as the others are all sexy, very feminine, sweet and so sensual..this one instead is like peach and dust only!!! i can't smell vanilla at all. Very DISAPPOINTED!

The first year it was released, while being in an elevator, a friend of mine came in. She was wearing a tropical, vanilla-based fragrance. Very distinctive and sharp. I could swear she wore Hypnose from Lancome. I knew it, because I used to wear it myself and really like it. When I asked her, she said she was wearing the One. I had the same - again and again - experience with this fragrance with other people as well. I keep confusing them with each other! This is not a bad thing! As I said, I like the first-released Hypnose and second-released One as well. To me, they are almost identical! They both belong to the category of "summer - chic, luxurius and sensual" fragrances. It wouldn't make a big difference if one wore this or that.

This starts out fruity and sweet, but warms down to a nice vanilla/amber on me, with hints of lily and peachy/plum. I love it for warmer weather and daytime/work wear.

For reference, my skin tends to love amber, vanilla, iris and sandalwood, and it hates leather, smoke, and rose (which always become overpowering).

A delicious warm, fruity vanilla. It has an opulent touch, giving this gourmand vanilla elegance.
The One is soft, sweet, cozy, very feminine and sensuous. It smells so good on everyone I've smelled it on. Amber, vanilla, peaches, pear (that's what I smell even though it's not in the notes), a light vetiver and a gentle floral touch to give the scent some balance and not end up sticky and typical. It is a step up from celeb gourmands, a much more refined, classier take. I would have gladly purchased this scent for myself if it weren't so popular, I know too many girls and women who are in love with this, and I totally see where the love is coming from.

I think Scarlett Johansson is the perfect face for this fragrance, certainly more appropriate than Bundchen (she is imo too sassy, sharp and glamorous). Johansson is not what I would consider a dazzling or 'show-stopping' sort of Hollywood beauty, rather she is the beautiful 'girl-next-door'...soft, fair, voluptuous and luminous in a more traditional feminine sense. Which is more in sync with the feel of this fragrance.

Since The One is so popular, I'm getting Lalique Le Parfum instead, another yummy classy vanilla which is less popular, but equally well-composed and starring 'vanilla' as its leading note.

It is the first time I try this perfume and I really love it. It makes me feel sensual and confident. If you are a more mature woman, specially 30-40 years old, I would TOTALLY recommend it for you to wear it on a daily basis. If you are younger, only for special occasions.
Black lace, stilettos, a bold piece of jewellery, a few drops of The One and your confidence will boost beyond limits.

I thought I would love this one but I find the litchi and powdery floral combo seems to tickle my throat and nose. As it settles the vanilla begins to emerge while the litchi fades away. Nice unique scent with moderate sillage and longevity on my dry skin, but not something I will run out and buy.
*added* after couple hours it smells like sweet potting soil on my skin...nope for sure not for me.
*added 5 hours later* Annoying scent I am not one to want to scrub off perfumes but this one just makes me want to escape the dry down and unfortunately it lingers after 3 hand washings!!!

I tried this for the first time today! I don't know why but I've never had any interest in smelling this before ( I really don't know why) but my girlfriend had this bottle in her car so I gave it a go. This is NOT at all what I expected! The bottle looks classy to me and my friend is a classy gal. I actually thought it would be some strong, white floral, to be honest. Best way I can describe this, to me this is a lady in the street but a freak in the bed! It's beautiful! Sweet, sultry, sexy but definitely classy, smells like a fancy black tie dinner then some hot sweaty sex! Please forgive my language! I loved this! Smelled just sweet enough, not too sweet and the vanilla, well, it's a GOOD vanilla! Nothing screechy or harsh in this! Not too gourmand, not too fruity floral and definitely a beautiful, smooth blend of top notch ingredients. This does smell expensive to me! I probably won't buy this unless I can get it in a small bottle. I think I would only wear this for special occasions or dates but not everyday for me. I really can't see someone not getting complimented when wearing this! I can't believe how much I love this! If this is your everyday fragrance then good for you! Wish we could hang out! Love it! It has the perfect amount of everything lovely! One spray on my arm over 8 hrs ago and it's still going strong. This is truly an amazing beauty.

This is a Fruity Vanilla Smoke. The hint of smokiness sets it apart or else it would smell very common. This is Def NOT the best D&G scent out there but its not a bad one. Its a little powdery and so I say it can be worn during the day. I dont think it delivers enough drama for a special night out. It would make a romantic scent, great for bedroom contact because its sexy but low impact so someone would have to be bedroom close to really appreciate the dimensions of this perfume. I think this scent would make a man melt in the bedroom. Its def not something i would wear to vegas at night lol.

On first smell it is to sweet and smoky to me; also, it 's fuggy and heavy. I like powdery note, but it later comes to the fore.
But this fragrance is really good after few hours. Start to be sexy powdery, warm, peachy with nice touch of latent vanilla. Also, there is smell of punch.
It is like dinner for two on winter night before hollidays.
It is great to wear on -20 degree ! :) Really!
If this perfume resembles on some country, it would be Germany on December, when they have Christkindlmarkt :)
But it is to expensive. The bottle is fine, classic.

I have always considered myself to be mature for my age, but as far as what age group comes to mind with this I'm talking mid 30s+ which is not me (19). I love that I have it but I'm quite careful of when I wear it and how much. it's almost always worn at night with a cool temperature. if worn on a hot day or overly sprayed it turns into a disaster! at least for me. it's not spicy but sexy as hell!

Disappointed. The perfume is expensive and lacks depth and mystery of Scarlett Johansson in the commercial. And definitely altogether disconnected with other fast pace charged commercial of the cat walk diva.

IT's fruity and very light. I spray it all the time to enjoy its subtle aroma. Maybe will be a good choice for hot and humid Toronto summers.

This perfume scent is ok. It gets you at first until it starts to fume off an areasol-like bathroom air freshner scent. I love the golden hued bottle. The bottle design looks alike with my Especially Escada Perfume Bottle.

I bought my first bottle of The One in 2007 and had several in succession as I loved the fragrance and its longevity on my skin. I recently purchased another one after a gap of about three years and am so disappointed to find that it no longer seems to have the staying power and actually took it back to the store where it came from. I spoke to a lady there who was a representative of the manufacturer and upon sampling mine she agreed there was something wrong with it (it seemed to last minutes on the skin) and gave me another bottle to try. I think this one is slightly better but still not as lasting as before. Has anyone else found the same?

I can see why other people like it, but it doesn't mix with my body chemistry. I don't get any fruit from it. On me it is a heavy (almost dirty?) musk and some vanilla. Definitely not for me :(

My signature scent... This is my favorite perfume ever ! It smells delicious. It is a romantic fragrance but also sexy. Suitable for day and for night too. My boyfriend loves it :) Vanilla-fruity smell, exciting and luxurious. Drydown its sweet,powdery but still sultry. Long lasting ! And the bottle ? Bottle is pompous :)

I'm really glad i tested it before buying tempted by very low price. Where is vanilla in here? From the listed notes i was almost sure it will be something i could like but i don't. It has this strange note which i call drugstore perfume smell but my older sister calls it elegance. Ok maybe i am not elegant enough to like it :) All D&G smells have something that is not really in my liking range. So also this time i stay far away. For those who like it - i am happy for you but i'm gonna continue searching for my perfect vanilla smell.

I really like this perfume, its so soft on my skin it makes me feel sexy, but the only downside is it doesn't last long!! :( gutting I have tried layering with the lotion I got but it still doesn't last maybe 2 hours on me. This would be my signature scent if it lasted.

This is the type of Vanilla that I enjoy. Soft ... not the cakes and cookies type of vanilla. Must be the decent dose of amber to balance the scent and a nice fresh peachy start. Easy enough to wear on most occasions....casual or dress-up dinners and such. As with most vanilla scents, I do not recommend heavy application. This is more of an evening scent for me...unless it's winter.

I work in health care and would never wear this in dealing with patients as I could see how would irritate some. That being said I love this on my skin, but more of date night perfume. On my skin the most prominent is amber but it stays close, which I prefer minimum sillage anyway. It does last long for me. I have not ever smelled the peach in this either but do get a gourmand somewhat like walking into a fine pastry shop.

Every time I smell this it gives me an instant headache and an impulse to throw up. Luckily I don't let that instinct lead me. It smells way too sweet, and it smells too much musk, too much vanilla and amber. It's not at all fruity or floral in my nose, to me it's just like some kind of burning sweet inferno that goes right up to my brain. In a bad way.

This is a rich scent, rich amberish vanilla, golden, intense, it smells luxurious,like the type of perfume a rich girl would wear, a spoiled brat, a famous actress, and also a warm personality. Overly feminine, I think it is a great quality scent, it speaks of feminity and sex appeal, it is very modern, very urban. But I know a few older modern ladies who love its warmth. I prefer L' Eau The One , same base but a certain freshness in the opening.
Let' s face it there are no other perfumes quite like it.
I am a big fan of D&G, they just create beautiful unique scents.
Very distinctive.

Autumn fruit salad with vanilla sauce.

Sadly I don't get the woody or floral notes in this one, which would have made it more interesting (cf Burberry Woman or J'Adore). But it's hard to dislike and I think it is a good choice for a young woman looking for a more serious scent with decent longevity that can be worn in the evening. It's not complex, but so what? There's nothing wrong with nice!

Aaah I loved this one to death. It was just so perfect. Feminine, light, but still bold, the perfect balance between fruity and powdery. Very long lasting.
But now something strange happened..
I bought a big bottle of it (at the perfume counter) summer of 2011. And now since a half year the scent is not the same anymore. When I spray it, the first 2 minutes it smells like it always did, but then it settles in to a smell that it never had before. The smell is sharper, not the same creamy smell anymore.. I'm so sad! It couldn't already gone bad, could it? It's just 1,5 years old (started smelling different after 1 year). I always keep my fragrances stored dark in my closet.
Does anybody on here had the same experience with The One? Would be very interested in that.

I don't like this at ALL - my nose gets stuck on the vanilla. It smells like a mixture of scents in someone's house that 1) loves vanilla and 2) has a different scent in each room. It's like standing in the hallway when all of those scents come together.

I really really wanted to like this perfume, but no mas. Hopefully it works on one of my girlfriends and they'll take it off my hands.

I wore my sample of The One today. So The One will enrobe you in a vanilla cloak. Now the initial spray was sweet and cloying to me. It bordered on headache inducing to me. I wore the one to work and didnt find that it had much sillage but thats my sponge perfume absorbing skin. The boyfriend test didnt recieve much results, but an "it's OK." This might not have been fair to The One because she has the one note that I imagine most men (and some women) would love, vanilla, but my BF believes in Wal-green knock offs and you should only have one perfume. The One was probably too sophisticated for him. When I asked others if it was too strong then to smell my wrist they simply said its nice. The one dries down to simply vanilla on me, and I almost think of baking with flowers. I'm having a hard time describing my new relationship with The One. She smells mature/sophisticated. I dont see the celebrity clones wearing her. Um, she's not as feminine as I like in a perfume. The one borders on androgynous to my nose. I could imagine a bold man wearing her. She is still a lady but would be the lady wearing a suit with short slicked hair and high heels. Would I continue this relationship with The One? I'm not sure if I got her as a gift I would wear, but I dont see myself seeking her androgynous vanilla. All in all a grown up fragrance with sophistication, but doesnt sing on my skin.

This is a very pretty perfume, and I particularly love the top and middle notes. It opens with a strong, refreshing scent of citrus. The peach, litchi, and bergamot are what I detect the most and I absolutely love it. After an hour, the litchi still remains, but soft florals of jasmine and lily begin to poke through. It quickly evolves into a perfect balance of fruits and floral.

Because of the strong fruity floral scent, I started wondering why so many people said this was best worn in the fall/winter. I really thought that this was “the one” and that I could wear this daily as my signature scent, especially when the vanilla poked through the jasmine and lily after 2 hours of wear. I absolutely love vanilla, so I was very glad to detect its presence. It still smelled pretty light and soft, so I couldn’t understand why people were calling this “warm.”

But then three hours after wearing this, the incredibly warm vanilla and amber broke all trace of the citrus and floral, and I finally understood why this would not be best for summer. I know I would feel suffocated by the strong vanilla if I wore this in the summer heat. The transformation of this perfume on my skin is very dramatic—it started off like summer citrus and floral, and then became winter vanilla and amber.

By the fourth hour, the amber was completely vanished and all I smelled was vanilla. Being such a vanilla fanatic, I was surprised that I was very put off by the vanilla. But it was extremely sweet to the point of nausea. Without the warmth of amber, the vanilla just smelled sticky. Whenever I would catch a whiff of this, I would almost gag because the vanilla was so strong and sticky sweet. I found myself purposely keeping my arms away from myself just so that I couldn’t smell the sugary, syrupy vanilla.

This has great longevity and sillage. It lasted well over 7 hours and could be detected by others without being obnoxious. If the vanilla weren’t so strong on me, I would absolutely wear this. I don’t consider this a mature scent, but it’s classy enough to make me feel confident and poised. It’s also not overly glamorous and luxurious enough to be worn only for special occasions. It's best for fall/winter since it gets syrupy and warm. Also, I like how elegant and simple the bottle is. Although it’s not “The One” for me, it’s worth trying if you like sweet scents. 4/5

I like it, I really like it. The first few minutes, the peach is right there in your face, it's almost too much.. but when it dries down, the vanilla is exquisite.. it's not synthetic at all, it's this delicious and perfect scent. The silage power is rather soft to moderate and the longevity is pretty good. But it is not a head turner fragrance... it doesn't scream "I am here and you're gonna remember me". Thumbs up for this one.

I finally got to test this one. It is a beautiful perfume, sweet and tender, not the average sweet scent, not at all chemical as that happens a lot with these type of perfumes. As mentioned below, it is somehow velvety. Very feminine, elegant sweetness. A must-try-once at least, if not a must-have. The only thing that put me off was that it didn't seem to last long neither on my skin nor on the tester paper. Maybe it was the weather conditions, I'll have to check again. Overall, I love it.

Im glad it isn't too fruity or too sweet, rather musky. I found similarities with Flora by Gucci and Allure EDT by Chanel. Definatelly I will buy it again as the freezing weather will come :)

its a beautiful scent made for mass production ..not unique.. but a subtle perfume.. a modern floral mildly oriental not over whelming..
its a wanna be sophisticated scent made for mid age independent women with a character..
its got vanilla with some wood sandalwood base and some florals white florals..its over rated imo..te advertisements and the whole buzz around it is whats making it more appealing to the public for the juce is not that special its a perfume that you can smell everywhere its not that unique or special its blant and a bit heavy in a light way ! if you know what i mean ..its missing multidimensional aspects..its not the type of perfume that you would say waw as soon as you open it is not shocking..its bland.. u have to hunt for the notes ,the accords are simple yet intricate..

i really really like this and am definitely thinking of buying this perfume. i would say its definitely a sweet fruity vanilla thats very sophisticated and feminine. its quiet a playful and alluring fragrance and i think its suitable for all ages.

i really adore litchi and this one opens with a sweet litchi thats quiet significant throughout the fragrance. also the peach is noticeable in the opening. theres faint notes of white florals and theres strong vanilla present throughout. i dont find this powdery at all, which is good because i dont necessarily like powdery scents.

the staying power so so. 2hours max and then all im left with is a sweet vanilla that lingers closely on my skin.

EDIT: the staying power is so much better during winter time! i could still get whiffs of this scent 6 hours after i sprayed it. the sillage is also a lot better. i think in hot and humid weather this scent just spreads and fades. Also the vanilla is much richer and sweeter.

Another blind buy off of ebay!

When I first sprated this perfume, I had to stop and think for a few minutes about where I had smelled it before. I knew I hadn't ever tried it. Suddenly, it hit me - Dolce & Gabbana The One smells a LOT like VS Angel Gold! I LOVE Angel Gold, and I immediately liked The One, too.

The two are not exactly the same. Angel Gold has a much brighter, citrusy introduction, while The One starts off a bit more subdued. I know that many people said that there was a "bubblegum" smell to the top notes in The One, but I have to say I didn't get that at all. Nor can I discern any peach, while many others were able to. I am not disappointed, though, because I think that the introduction is well blended, smooth, even elegant. While the perfume still has a ways to go before it is dried down (I only applied it about a half hour ago), I can already smell the powdery vanilla. It took a little longer for the "vanilla woods" to come through with Angel Gold. In the middle, both share jasmine notes. This is a point of departure for the two fragrances, I believe, as with Gold I begin to smell more gardenia than any other of the floral mid notes, and I don't think I have reached the heart of The One quite yet - I am just beginning to sense some of the "balmy" florals and jasmine is the most prominent so far. I look forward to seeing how the scent progresses from here!

My one major qualm with Angel Gold is the lasting power - a few hours and I am left with only a ghost of a memory of the beautiful fragrance I had applied. I am hoping and praying that The One lasts where Angel Gold did not.

So far, I really like The One quite a lot. It is very pretty and soft, and while it seems that most don't think this fragrance is anything to write home about, I can definitely see myself using this on a regular basis, and while it is somewhat of a dissapointment that I have 2 fragrances that smell so much alike, at least I like both of them! And being that Angel Gold is quite a bit cheaper than The One, I may be able to use the two in tandem.

I will update my review after I have had some time to see where The One takes me! :)

update:
The longevity with this one is very disappointing... The fragrance dries down to a beautiful, warm, slightly spicy vanilla, and I love it. Even with the warmth there is still something clean in the fragrance. Unfortunately, after about 3 hours there is hardly ANY scent left on my skin... my nose has to be touching my wrist to be able to detect anything. I will still wear this because I really REALLY like it, and it smells so good on my skin, I just wish I could say it lasted longer!!!

I have expected this scent to be more fresh and/or fruity but I'm not disappointed. I love the bottle(reminds me a lot of Gucci ones but it is WAY better quality), the small one (30 ml) has lasted me quite a while. I have sprayed just a little bit and I never had to take the bottle with me, cause the scent lasts a really long time. It is very ladylike, for me just the perfect perfume for summer - appropriate for work, but has a heavier side to it so it is a good choice for a night out. LOve it and would definetely repurchase!

The One is quite a cozy and comfy fragrance with a playful touch. When I tested it the first time, I was absolutely delighted that it smelled reminiscent of Tocade by Rochas which I really like but can be too much for me at times. The One has, to my nose, the same metallic rose note I have come to like very much in Tocade (which I quite disliked to begin with). The vanilla in both perfumes is very similar to my nose, not cloyingly sweet and sugary but a rather soft and velvety sweetness. The fruit notes in The One play more a softer tune. For me, The One is an excellent alternative to Tocade, a vanilla/rose scent I can wear anytime and anywhere, happily going along all year round. One reviewer mentioned that The One is a rather linear scent, to which I wholeheartedly agree, and that makes it so friendly and comforting. There are days when you need that reassurance that the friend you greeted in the morning is still the same in the evening.

I'm on the fence about this one. I tried it for the first time the other day and couldn't decide if I like it or not. It smells like vanilla and lily of the valley (yellow). It smells ok for part of the day, I kept sniffing my arm and suddently it dawn on me that it has a sharp ammonia smell like cat piss. I thought I liked it in the begining but I will give it another try later.

This fragrance smells lovely on my skin, I can definitely pick up the vanilla and fruity notes, yet it remains a sophisticated perfume for day or night. I was thinking about asking for this as a christmas gift because I adore vanilla scents and the bottle is gorgeous. But then I realised how little time The One lasts on my skin! About 10 minutes after I had tried it, I could no longer smell it at all! I have eau de toilettes that last hours longer than this eau de parfum. Definitely try before you buy.

On my skin this smells fruiy-floral-aquatic ! Almost like the drydown of Perry Ellis 360° which I love. I can't smell any vanilla at all. Very subtle, sweet and fresh. I want to buy it but still having second thoughts... my 360° is still half full and I have the 200ml bottle. I'll do another skin test and see if I'll like it enough to buy it.

It smells more powdery and amber to me an vanilla. It is a more sophisticated gourmand to me if it is even considered a gourmand along with the cloud of sweet perfumes like Fancy and Pink Sugar. I feel like this is a great nighttime perfume or one to wear under a cozy chunky sweater. I cant imagine this wouldn't turn cloying on a hot day, to me that would tip theprecarious blamce towards old lady scent. The heat can do that to some fragarances and this is most likely one of them in my opinion.

Overall, I say give it a try but only if you like powdery amber scents because it is more powdery than sweet.

My Dad got me this by accident last Christmas instead of Light Blue (bless him, he doesn't have a clue, the last scent he bought was a Harley Davidson one bacvk in the early 1990's)(and he ordered 2 bottles of it on top of getting the wrong one lol)

Anyway, I haven't worn it until last night as I much prefer very fresh / clean /sporty fragrances and dress quite casually so didn't think I could pull it off.

Maybe I can't, but I actually quite like it, it IS sweet, but not too in your face, quite powdery and vanillery, but very long lasting and keeps floating by every few minutes all day.

Unique too, and good quality. Think it suits wintery weather better. I can understand why it's so popular.

This won't be an every day one, but I'd wear it on a night out when I dress up a bit.

A few years ago I had Hypnose by Lancome, i keep thinking of that when I smell this, not exactly the same but has hints of it.

This is a very comforting fragrance and the vanilla is very pronounced, making it a perfect layering option for other gourmandy type frags. In fact, i'm currently wearing The One under Angel body lotion and they work heavenly together. This is perfect for everday wear, and can be worn in the office as it is not a strong/imposing scent, and is sexy enough to be worn in the evening while out on the town. The longevity is pretty good - a decent 2-3 hours of noticeable aroma, and the sillage is good, but doesn't leave too big of a trail behind. This is more geared toward the colder months, because it is a bit sweet and may be a little too much in the stickier months. Overall, this is a must have if you're like Sweet fragrances, and it's a perfect pick because it does a great job of balancing the notes so that it's not an overbearing sugarbomb geared at the younger crowd, but a delicious womanly scent that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Ordered a sample vial of The One, because the notes sounded like ones that I would enjoy—an amber fragrance counterbalanced with fruit and flowers, enhanced with vanilla (rather than the dreaded patchouli note that is so often used with amber, and that turns to ashes on my skin).

It is exactly the notes as described on Fragrantica: powdery amber, delicate lily-white florals, a hint of rich vanilla, a touch of fruit. It is a soft fragrance, very feminine. The musk and vetiver give a nice depth, but it doesn’t get woody or masculine at all. I see it described as sensual and warm, but I disagree. To me, this is a springtime fragrance, fresh. For me, the lily is such a nice note, making the amber and vanilla just sing so sweetly and in such a different way than typically amber vanilla fragrances.

It brings to mind Easter—-lilies, sweet white chocolate, the strange and fascinating smell of Easter grass in pastel colored baskets; dewy green grass, damp cool stones, spring flowers making their appearance through fragrant and muddy soil. Yes, I could wear this all year round but I think it is the epitome of spring.

It does not develop much; the fragrance I experienced after the first 10 minutes continues to be the experience I have after 2 hours. This is nice, in that it’s predictable, but I will say I like my perfume to be more of an olfactory adventure throughout the day. Sillage is low on me, and longevity is moderate.

The One is a rich amberish vanilla , Like a boozy luxurious vanilla scent, well suited for nights out
It is more snobbish than elegant really , more urban more sensuous
It isn't my favorite, lots of people wear it , and it gets one dimensional on me
Yet what a glorious statement if makes!!

This is really The One, sophisticated vanilla, extremely unique, I think that's why opinions differ, The One is just like Poison CD or Angel TM, you love it or hate it. If you looooove vanilla The One is for you, if you're not ...WARNING!!! Stay a million miles away!!!

Not sure where all this fuss comes from...smells very "ordinary" to me, like a million other fruity florals that the mainstream factory pumps out - infact, I find it rather synthetic and cheap. The last power is minimal and it's gone after 2hrs.

sounds like something I should like... the golden, classic looking bottle, the jasmine, peach, musk... all the basenotes that I like... so why haven't I fallen in love with it? too common, like the other d&g; light blue... I feel like everybody may wear this. is it a bad thing? no, definitely not even I want to wear it on fall days... just a bit too sweet and not so different to care for an original bottle, for me

In general, peach fragrances become sickening to me. This is not the case. Peach and vanilla, a little powdery. Smell: Round, soft, warm. The sillage is not very big, but the power of permanency is good.

Unfortunately, this smells cloyingly sweet on me, as if I covered myself with syrup or honey, and it makes me feel a bit sick. Strangely, it does not smell like vanilla to me at all. One spritz goes a long way and it lasts the whole day. Too bad:(

This is warm, sweet, ambery, vanilla, and fruity. The mandarin orange is very noticeable on my skin, so it reminds me of a high end orange creamsicle. The peach in this smells delicious and blends seamlessly with the other notes, so it smells very smooth. There is also a faint floral spiciness from the lily, which comes across as peppery and adds a spicy complexity. This is a comfort scent, warm and calming. Cozy enough for nights in fall or winter, and glamourous enough for evening wear.

"The One", yes---that is, the one you will smell on a hundred other women wandering a shopping mall...

Not repellent, certainly, and there are far worse quality things out there, but not terribly original either. Too sweet for my taste (although there are much sweeter scents around), with generic white florals commingled with generic fruity stuff, drying down to a not-unpleasant but not very exciting vanilla. A passing reminder of Guerlain's L'Instant ? But L'Instant is much better composed and more satisfying. If it's vanilla one wants, there are far more interesting vanilla perfumes out there. I just wasn't impressed. Still, the air is filled with far fouler things these days, and I'd rather smell this than the umpteen thousand sugar/fruit confections wafting about any gathering of females under 40ish...It's a safe, but not distinctive choice, I suppose.

It smell stays medium-long and is very sweet on me.
It almost smells like 'ouwel' in dutch. It's candy-paper.
But it's also the thing I don't like about D&G The One, because candy like that is not very.... elegant..

So I find this a lovely parfume, but not as elegant as the commercial says... ;)

So many people i know love/have this perfume.
So i bought it because at first i really liked the smell. But as i got used to it and used it more I felt it was heavy and made me smell a little too girly.
Its quite a seductive scent which in the end didn't match my personality. (I would describe myself as a tomboy who best suits light/fresh/clean flirty smells)

Ended up getting a headache from it too, so if you tend to get headaches from perfumes i would avoid this one.

Warm and sensual. Cozy for Autumn and Winter. This sexy scent causes me to breathe in deeply each time I catch a hint of it. One spritz lasts and lasts, and the silage can fill a room at first. However, after the dry down, it's an intimate fragrance that gets people to lean in close to smell the delicious fragrance. I love it!

I got a mini of this with an online order, I was excited to try because it's an oriental floral, and I'd read rave reviews about it, but sadly, it just does not work for me.

I might give it one more try, but I had to wash it off immediately. I put it on this morning, and by the time I got to work, I was at the sink. That was 2 hours after applying it. It opens very sharp on me, with a blast of chemical smelling fruits and what I believe is vanilla.

Maybe the sharpness comes from the litchi, as I'm not familiar with what litchi smells like alone. I do know that the peach in this and other perfumes, if it is prominent, and it is in this one on my skin, doesn't usually work for me.

I can say that the sillage is pretty decent, and the longevity seems really good, because I've scrubbed 3 times, and I can still smell it. This one gave me a headache, and I don't usually get perfume headaches.

It reminds me very much of Burberry Burberry Women, but that one works on me.

This is such a beautiful and sophisticated scent.

When I first sprayed it, there was a sharp note and alot of lily of the valley but then it settles to the most divine vanilla, amber, fruity and sweet fragrance. I couldn't stop sniffing my wrist! I find this fragrance quite sensual yet comforting and warm. This isn't childish or over sweet at all! I most definitely would wear this in winter. The lasting power was great,about 8 hours on my skin.

Overall, a classy, sensual and beautiful perfume that I recommend to anyone who loves vanilla and cosy scents.

This is pretty much my signature scent. Even my friend who gets perfume headaches likes this on me. A perfect match to my chemistry--nothing pops out. Unless I apply it at night (after a shower, getting ready to go out) and then it smells of 2 things--vanilla and green tea. Completely different than if applied in the morning. So, I will add my experience to Rednose--it's a complex perfume story, and your own skin chemistry will either make this work or make it odorous hell.

I don't know what happened between then and now to make this scent smell completely different to my nose, all i know is that am really liking it. it used to smell like you stuck your nose into some cleaning liquid and imediately after stuck it into a pot of talc. now, it smells like some devilish heroine walked into the door and she sweat glory and victory of some sort :/

D&G fragrances continue to surprise me. At fist spray I was like, ok this is nice but nothing wow-worthy. But as with other D&G scents I have, their is something that always surprises me in the dry down... Something that always makes me go "hmm, what is that?" That is why I love D&G fragrances....they all have an element to them that is very unexpected and different from the norm.

Too vannilic for me. Darn!!!

I really wanted to like this. I know that many reviews start this way. But, I really wanted to enjoy a newer scent. I was so tired of being bombarded by gourmands and fruities. I wanted something differant. I was told by the sales person that this was a straight oriental, and that it rivaled Opium. What a liar! I really feel that her mis-representation is part of the reason why I do not care for this scent. Note to all sales reps...FYI!

This is a vanillic, gourmand. The focus of this fragrance is strictly vanilla, and there are some supporting florals. The florals are sweet and enduring, so lasting power and sillage are not an issue. It lasts quite awhile. It is a youthful and romantic fragrance, that would be good for a wedding- or a romantic date. I do not see this fragrance as being overtly sexy, as the vanilla accord is just too sweet and pervasive to allow any other notes to take front and center.

Like I suggested, this fragrance is very romantic. It is not for the office or professional dealings of any kind. It would be nice for winter holidays, though. It has an almost "Christmas'y" vibe to it, with it's candied, vanilla bean, and warm florals.

I do not care for vanilla "in it's sweet facade", but I think that a woman who wears gourmands during the day, would find this a treasure in the evening.

Compared to other D&G perfumes, The One is really just "safe" (i.e. boring). It's sweet and fruity, doesn't really have any character, isn't particularly stylish. It's perfect for blending in with everyone else at the office or the grocery store. I love the name of it: THE ONE...seems like it should be extremely special, but it's just another poor victim of corporatization.

D&G is part of a string of houses that used to make quality stuff, but have now stooped to making bland, watery, ordinary fragrances. I will dump The One into the same pile that I have dumped Vanitas and Guilty.

This is the most glamourous scent I've ever smelled. It spells glamour, sexiness, confidence, sensuality, power, kindness, all that you want to be when you've spent hours dressing up for that special evening occassion.
I only wish it had better staying power and dry-down. The dry-down on me starts to smell a bit stale and old, like an old cupboard! Real disappointment, especially after the first couple hours that make you feel like a queen!

This is much lighter and powdery than I expected, but that suits me fine as it's summer at the moment so I can wear this much more in the day than I thought (and it will still be suitable to wear in the evening and winter because it's so cosy and comforting).

I really don't get the fruitiness The One is supposed to have except the mandarin/apricot in the opening note. I'm actually pleased I can't smell any plum! After that it's just white flowers (mainly lily), powder and vanilla. Very soft and not too sweet, just creamy and floral. Surprisingly I really like to spritz a small amount of this on before I go swimming as the smell of vanilla and flowers mixed with the water is divine. I will be taking this on holiday next week too as it smells amazing in the summer breeze.

The One is really the one that you can put your hands on, if you want the most romantic and classy blind of fruits & white floral

The open is so peachy with the mysterious sweetness of the plum, then it's all about the fruit of paradise (Litchi), it's so prominent here.

The bouquet of white floral is elegant & sweet with , I don't smell a heady jasmine or lily here, both are sweetened with drops of the pure vanilla extract (Yummy) !!

Then the vetiver & bergamot are added in a clever way to keep the juice balanced with the fruits & white flowers

I am in love with this scent since it released and will buy a bottle after a bottle gladly ,, this smells to me as a cocktail party juice in a bottle and I use it for parties Only..

This scent has something sharp to it that contradicts the warmth of the perfume, but I cannot quite grasp what it is exactly. Too bad, because without this sharp bit it would be so much better.

EDIT: three hours in and finally the sharp is gone. Now it's warm and beautiful and really sensual. If it would have been like this from the beginning I would add this to my favourites. As my nose had 3 hrs of struggling to do it's a big no-no.

And another edit: This perfume really lasts forever! I`m wearing it for over 11 hrs now and I can still smell it very well.

After reading many positive reviews I decided to buy a sample on eBay ( from top seller). Forgive me all who love this perfume, it's my personal opinion. First impression - The cacophony of smells including screaming lily of the valley covered with powder my great grandma spilled on the dressing table in 1964. In thirty minutes I can smell a ghost of plum and vanilla and something soft, thick and a little... unpleasant. A weird mix which can't be described by elements. At some point there are aldehydes, which are not in description at all.
Conclusion. If I didn't get the fake, this is heavy, rich perfume. Make sure you have tried and wear it BEFORE buying a heft. For women 35 and up, night, winter.

Dolce & Gabbana The One is tempting, modern, and glamorous. Luscious alluring vanilla, soft succulent peaches, fresh jasmine and lily, fruity plum and lychee with sun-kissed citrus notes. A dry down of warm amber, sensual musk and bergamot with a woodsy yet powdery base of vetiver. The One is a must have fragrance for the sexy and classy woman!

Not for me, I'm afraid. The very ingredients I love -- peach, bergamot and white flowers -- are non-existent to my nose. It's very very sweet and boozy on me. At first I sensed a tobacco, but that turned into just a lot more vanilla. Reminiscent of powdery fragrances with violets in them. The drydown smelled like a cloyingly sweet candle wax on me. Sorry.

This fragrance stands out as upscale. The ingredients are pure high quality ( probably explains why it is so expensive, or because the name). The initial spray and scent can be quite strong and heavy for someone who likes lighter scents. There is a very strong vanilla/peachy blast but it is very sophisticated. Peach can go wrong if it is too much or a cheap oil, but the peach is wrapped with vanilla and florals making it quite luxurious to wear. This scent has a very powdery quality to it. This perfume really makes one feel upscale and elegant. Its great for early evening and colder days since its has power to blast through sharp cold. It is a nice fall or winter fragrance. Careful not to overdo it though, too much of this and you will suffocate those around you.

I feel if you like Donna Karan Cashmere Mist, Coco Mademoiselle, or Prada, you may like this for the powdery/elegant quality

I really love the one, it is one of the most true smelling apricot fragrances I have ever smelt. I can't detect the lychee at all during wear, just apricot and vanilla. The apricot smells like apricot should be, fresh, not sickly sweet and the vanilla adds a lovely touch of warmth.

I kept coming back to this "one" at the store. And finally ordered a mini bottle to take a test drive with. First impression- pleasingly subtle and close to the skin, warm and soothing but not heavy enough to shy away from warm weather use. Top notes are light and fruity with citrus, peach and a nudge of litchi. Then a warm jazmine with an undercurrent of lily settles into a humm of vanilla, vetiver, amber, musk. The powdery dry down is not heavy at all. I think it's a fragrance you can enjoy from the get go. It doesn't require time for you to settle into it. I don't think it is extremely long wearing. I think it can be comfortably worn in the office without assaulting your coworkers and can easily transition to an evening out. I'm sure I will end up being very pleased with this and will be buying a large bottle. ~q

An Update! :

Yesterday, i go to shopping mall just want to test and buy either D&C the one or rose the one version and i decide to buy the rose version! I got tried to smell the original D&C the one and please don't get mad for those who love the original D&C okay? This is just my opinion and my opinion could be wrong =) I think the original 'the one' smell too strong and too woodsy. And i can't detect any fruity notes in there. And i think the original the one more suits to beautiful, mature and classy woman. It do smells expensive but just not for me. =]

I prefer rose version!

@desertrat : Glad that you love the original version! =] I can imagine that you are beautiful and classy woman! =D and sorry for my english, im from Malaysia.

LOVE it! I started wearing it again yesterday. I'm always surprised by the slight spicy top note that I can't identify. Maybe ginger or cinnamon? When it dries down it moves into a warm sophisticated creamy sweet vanilla and peach which I love. My husband also loves it on me. I like it better than the new Roberto Cavalli which on me is too sweet...
PS @Lovable Amy the Rose version dies on me as do most Rose fragrances. Lovely, but I like the original the One best!

No se que me pasaba con este perfume, pero lo probe tantas veces y no me convencia de comprarlo, me parecia muy fuerte al inicio, pero me encantaba cuando pasaba como media hora. El caso es que hace unos dias me anime y oh cielos!!! estoy TOTALMENTE ENAMORADA de el!! Es abril, hace calor, pero como lo uso en la oficina (hay clima), no lo siento nada pesado, se siente sútil, placentero, me relaja. Como muchas dicen, te hace sentir sexy y en mi caso: dura todo el dia! guau!

(ja, aún me pasa que lo huelo de la botella y me parece fortísimo)

I do not know what happened with this perfume, but I tried it many times and did not convince me to buy it, I looked very hard at first, but I loved it when I passed half an hour. Anyway, a few days ago and I encourage you heavens! I'm totally in love with him!! It's April, it's hot, but how do I use in the office (no weather), do not feel anything heavy, feels subtle, pleasant relaxes me. As many say, makes you feel sexy and in my case: lasts all day! wow!

(ha, I still smell it passes the bottle and I feel very strong)

Have been wearing this for a few days now. I didn't open it straight away, as was waiting for the right time to try it. Where is the vanilla?? I am waiting for it, but hardly a glimpse! I pick up the peach-fruit opening, then on to the white florals. A bit of a mixed combo, not unpleasant, but not really my style. I tried this on paper, and could smell the vanilla, no problem. Then also tested on my wrist, at the store..It was a pleasant vanilla dry down. SO of course, I bought it, (online). It isn't fake, and the staying power is very good, BUT I can't detect much vanilla at all! Another of my vanilla quests, turning out a bit disappointing! I also bought the body lotion, to increase the staying power. I bet if I give it to my daughter-in-law, It will be a fabulous vanilla scent:)) All in all, not too bad, but not one for me to rave over!

I bought this as a blind buy after reading reviews: I thought if so many liked it, it must be good. Plus I also like vanilla and peach, so I went ahead and bought this for myself from my first job's first salary :)

One spritz and my migraine zoomed back to me! Its too flowery, too synthetic on me. All I get is this strange, floor cleaner, artificial jasmine! I really wanted to like it: it was my first real expensive perfume. But sadly, it just didn't work with me.

So I swapped it with my friend for Carolina Herrera 212 VIP (which I totally love!). On her, it smelled beautiful! She's a small, petite, soft spoken girl and this perfume completely complemented her personality.

We'd gone for a movie together and she smelled lovely. There was vanilla, musk, subtle peachy-fruitiness: And that jasmine (which made me smell like cheap floor cleaner) was like part of a beautiful invisible bouquet of flowers. It was wonderful on her.

Guess my skin chemistry didn't really do the job for this, so I'd say test it out before you buy it. If it goes with you, its a very soft, lovely scent. It projects well and lasts for about 6-8 hours.

PS: The bottle is brilliant! The heavy glass simple cube-ish structure looks very sophisticated.

I like this scent...I guess. I think that it has elements of types of scents that I like but it doesn't come full circle for me. I like fresh and crisp scents with a touch of sweetness (nothing too aquatic or grassy). Although the beginning smells beautiful and elegant, after a few minutes this sharpness emerges. I am not 100% certain of what note it is because almost all the notes are significant parts of some of my favorite perfumes. It might be the lily or the chemistry between two or more other notes that don't meld together well for me. I get a very distinct soap smell after about half an hour. This is going to sound melodramatic but I feel like there is this note that almost got out of its cage and D&G weren't able to get it back in so it kind of is that annoying little sister that won't go away when you wish the other notes would be more noticeable or that the drydown would come sooner. This rarely happens but it is giving me a headache.

Also, although this has a sophisticated, elegant aspect to it (I definitely see it as a scent for a woman in her thirties or forties), it's almost too elegant for me...there is nothing "bad" about it...almost too proper or innocent for me. I wish the vanilla were sweeter or the musk more pronounced because it's missing a sexy element for me.

I am glad I did not impulse buy this because I really loved this the times that I sampled it but luckily i waited to wear it on my skin from "beginning to end" and it's definitely a no for me.

UPDATE: I tried this again today and I counted. It takes FOUR hours for the headache-inducing notes to die off before this scent softens. Although it does soften and the vanilla become a BIT more noticeable, this remains a relatively linear scent on me.

My Mom has it and she loves it! I like it more on her then on me, but thats probs becuase it more of a mature scent. It can be a bit sweet becuase its quite stong, however if u can get past that its nice for evening or day wear.

The One is a generally pleasing vanilla scent. Its quite creamy and sensuous, not too commonplace but very non-offensive. Although, something dodesn't quite sit right with me; the vanilla seems a bit watery to me, like someone added water to a bowl of cream. I've never really settled upon my opinion of it though. I probably wouldn't be buying a bottle any time soon, but I find myself coming back to it again and again.

Such a sensuous dry down, very oriental indeed! The One is mostly warm and sweet with a moderate amount of spiciness, very comforting and sexy at the same time. The lasting power is great too--for least two days!

For me it seems like this is a scent that is appropriate for a more mature woman... 30+ perhaps. I smell a soft and rich vanilla... it smells almost like honey to me. I didn't feel like I could pull it off or that it was for me though.... Even though it's sweet, it was just not what I typically go for.

The One: Just for Me

The One has to be one of the softest fragrances I've come across. I can spray it and never feel overwhelmed or headachy. In fact, I love wearing it to bed. I feel my blood pressure drop when I wear The One. It is comforting and sensual.

The lingering vanilla and musk soften the what could be very annoying peach. I like how the white flowers keep The One interesting and light-handed, as this fragrance could easily fall into heavy, boring, redundant territory.

Sillage is moderate. The One is simply a special, secret fragrance that is for only me, my husband, and my cats. It is the perfect I-wear-it-for-me scent.

This is a lovely fragance. I thought the composition would be more complex, but surprise...it's quite simple. It's soft, creamy and elegant, intense but discreet. It's not a common or cheap fragrance either. Very sensual and classy.
I would describe it as a vanille-y, oriental/spicy floral. How could such a mixture ever go wrong? :)

I tried this on at Christmas time - and for some reason did NOT like it. Today I tried it again because the sales associate recommended it when I stated I wanted a fresh, vanilla, powder scent with a hint of sexiness. I thought it was a tall order - but she insisted this was good - so I sprtized it and walked around. At first I was not too into it (don't care for the peach at first) then as it settled I was glued to my wrist - and after I came home my hubby said I smelled "nice with a hint of sexy" - 8) So I purchased the bottle - got a free small bottle of D & G the one - rose.

I really expected to like The One, all the notes add up and the reviews made me think that this would be to die for, so i bought a sample and wow okay this is not what I was expecting. This is without a doubt a well made, sophisticated, deep, sweet and warm fruity vanilla fragrance. However on me all you smell are peaches and vanilla and I got that banana smell that another reviewer mentioned and since I am not a fan of peach nor bananas it made me nauseous more than anything. It's sad but I really didn't like it in the least. Skin chemistry really is a strange thing.

I LOVE the initial spritz of this one - warm, sensual and unique vanilla

but 30 minutes later it smells... old? Like it's suddenly become dusty and a bit stale.

If it retained the freshness of the initial spray I'd buy it, but sadly my chemistry doesn't work with this one.

This scent is better for married women, than free :)

This is just, simply great. So incredibly delicious.
I was testing some fragrances at a perfumeshop and was kind of disappointed in nearly everything I smelled, probably due to all those scents mingled together. Then I smelled THE ONE.

And I was hooked. To me, it smelled like a refined, elegant, chic version of my all time favourite, the slightly dirty CLASSIQUE EDT, though the notes are really not that similar
I normally hate peach in fragrances, but here it just adds a little freshness, lifting up the fragrance.
It simply left me speechless.
And renewed my belief in the fragrance industry :)

The bottle also looks great. So elegant, not overdone, just simple lines. I would love to have it on my vanity.

The only reason I didn't buy it was the price. It's VERY expensive, especially for a student.
But maybe a small bottle (30 ml). Just for special occasions.

No, I HAVE to have it!

EDIT: Tested it again and well, I realized this is way too sweet for me. Sweet in a slightly unpleasant, candylike way.
So I won't buy this in the end.

the one! the one and only ever, i was not able to wear for such a reason!
first of all i m a gourmand lover and also tending in sweet oriental perfumes in general, but the one is far too sickening.
the first perfume ever i could not stand at all because of its sickening sweetness with latent needs to vomiting! the oriental touch which one could probably calm down the syrupy sweetness, on me at least, doesn't show up at all.
i gave it now 3x a go and always had to wash it off after half an hour, don't get me wrong, it smells gooood, it starts really nice juicy-fruity-sweet-foody like delicious slightly over-ripe fruits, but then it gets sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and still sweeeeeter like anything else! incredible heavy stuff.
it let's me feel like after having eat an overdose of pure marmelade and i wont eat anymore in my whole life!
the one could work well for someone who wanna lose weight, because with this stuff on, you'll not gonna be able to eat anything... don't work for me at all... such a pitty, it starts out really nice! i think this perfumes could cause also a big headeach for sensible people. caution with the one!

Woah, this one is sweet. Extremely so.

I don't often find perfumes to be TOO sweet, but sadly, this one turns quite sickly on me. While it smells nice in the bottle, what it leaves on my skin is a ridiculously sweet orangy, plasticky vanilla with undertones of something similar to rotting fruit.

This is probably a very nice fragrance on some people (bevare though, a little goes a long way with this one!). However, much like with Gucci Flora, this just doesn't seem to work on my skin.

I really love this scent! Actually started wearing it at the beginning of last summer. Wore it in the middle of the summer too (but the european summers aren't that hot). Now in the winter I still like it a lot.
It smells just so feminine and sweet, a bit powdery and fruity (a very nicely done peach) with an amazing lasting power.

Three spritzes last you all day and the next morning there is still a little trace (especially when you spray your neck and you have long hair that strokes your neck, your hair still smells like this the next morning) of the smell remaining.
The scent just wraps around you and makes you feel feminine, flirty and a little bit sexy all day long. For me this is a feel good perfume!

A spritz of this in your cleavage also works miracles ;)

One of the best!

I have a vegan imitation oil of this. It is a very inviting scent.

I have yet to smell the original perfume. I stay true to the online sellers I buy from. I find that their cruelty free "dupes" are very affordable for me. Sorry,I do not trust that Dolce&Gabbana are a cruelty free company. Sad.

Onto the scent.......

I am smelling warm bubblegum,creamy vanilla, and gently tart,and invigorating bergamot fruit. Also there is a bowl of juicy lychee,ripe peaches,delicious! This perfume is quite gauzy and soft,very gentle. The sweetness of it smells like velvet draped on my skin.

I don't own it, but I have sprayed it on myself a few times when I've passed the perfume counter. Lol I really like it, so I'm not sure why I haven't purchased it, I don't know, maybe the price. It's a very sexy, warm, seductive scent and dare I say a classic one too. I love the fact that it's rich and luxurious smelling; my kind of perfume. I don't know, maybe I see it as a special occasion frag that won't get much use because I don't attend any special occasions. I would think the cooler months would suit this frag as it is heavy. If I can find a really good deal, I may purchase as I've had really good luck with D&G's perfumes; they last a long time on my skin and go really well with my chemistry. So, maybe one day...

EDIT: So I found a really good deal on the body lotion and I ended up buying it. I really love the shimmer it gives my skin; would be great for the summer. That being said, this really isn't as heavy as I thought it was. Maybe the heat of summer would make it even sexier. I still consider it a special occasion frag, but what the hell, why not wear it when you want to feel a little glamorous. It's actually very soft and I catch some small whiffs here and there. Glamorous, warm, cuddly, and sexy too; I'm really glad I bought it.

I tried it at Macy's last week, sprayed directly on myself. Just wanted to see how it works with my body chemistry as I liked how it smelled on the paper strip. It is beautiful powdery-sweet scent, sofisticated and very feminine. In one word, sexy. But it immediately gave me a headache which didn't go away until I washed it off. Maybe it is the sweetness and kind of heaviness (which I actually liked in this perfume) that caused the headache... I just can't wear it for that only reason. What a pity...

@nush imogen - trust me it will still be too cheap smelling - I'm over 40 and finding it the same - i'm still keeping it as there are winter days when skin chemistry works a bit better and you need a hint of vanila and amber - also needs to be used very sparingly

The One es un perfume cálido y sensual, envuelve la piel como un velo de terciopelo. Me encuentro cómoda con él y tiene buena durabilidad en la piel sin resultar intrusivo. Sin embargo es un perfume que utilizaría de vez en cuando, me gusta mucho pero no me apasiona, tal vez porque lo encuentro un poco clásico para mi.

The One is a fragrance rich and seductive, I would see it combined with the typical Femme Fatale, the warmth that this fragrance is truly extraordinary, but also the fruits and vanilla, but I have also caught the scent of freshly cut wood that is The One a message of pure passion, aggressive and sophisticated, gentle oasis for the senses, astral travel or daydream?
Really beautiful her bouquet, Dolce and Gabbana have hit the mark with this fragrance that I would call indicated in cold weather where the vanilla is poured out like a charm.

If you are looking for a fruity floral minus the teeny bopper appeal, but instead with a sexy, elegant even slightly glamorous appeal...this really is 'the one' ... the jasmine is soft but definently noticable, while it's rich in vanilla and fruits the drydown is pure elegant sexiness ..this is not your average beauty queen this is a prior beauty queen with brains and exquisite taste, a travelor, a reader ... a woman with her head on straight and everything in place. Well rounded gorgeous, and stunning in a delicate way.

While it definently has a warm cozy comfort factor which makes it great for colder months it also has this golden aura around it... which works well for a sexy cool summer day/night

Really original and well executed, the drydown is to die for musk/amber woods..with a slight kiss of a powdery vanilla.. and a bit of a fruity nuance...blended so well . At the top it smells of peach to me, but as it dries down the fruit is rather difficult to pick out but you know it's there..lingering softly

This one is a keeper that I will most likey re-purchase

Sillage is very decent and longevity is 6-8 hours on me... which for me is prety great... definently a winner!

Liquid gold, gorgeous,rich, yummy...sexiness
Perfect for any scarlett!

It's not bad, but definitely overrated. On first spray all I can smell is bubblegum with some fruity notes, then it faded to jasmine and the dry down was pretty nice, powdery with some soft woodsy notes. After tests I didn't find it interesting enough to buy it, it's not "the one", more like the safe and boring one.

I liked this, but at the same time it's about as interesting to me as Coach Poppy. Nice, but not nice enough to buy. It's sweet, mostly from the lychee. It quickly becomes very strong in the vanilla department, but it's a soft and elegant vanilla as opposed to a rich and luxurious one. I would buy this if the sillage was a lot stronger, but it's a bit too thin for my personal taste.

Well, D & G invested in the marketing and in the first five minutes of the perfume. That is what one calls concentrating on the selling act. All of a sudden, it all disappears, like an illusion, leaving a nice memory of a brief instant and probably the long ad. Don't people say that beauty is ephemerous? The idea is for sure lovely.

I was very surprised with this one. Expected it to be rather heady and heavy but it isn't. It's warm, classy and elegant. Like other people have commented it just blends into your own skin chemistry and becomes quite intoxicating and "moreish". I too couldn't stop smelling my wrist to see if it was still as good as I thought it was. Sillage and longevity are excellent - lasted a good 8 hours on me and my shirt in the morning still smelled lovely. Definitey one I will buy and use often. Similar in a way to L'Instant by Guerlain but different enough to have both of them in my perfume wardrobe. Alexandrarae

The One makes me swoon. I can sense the litchi and peach on top followed very quickly by the plum and lily. These fruits are ripe but the whole feeling is sexy and fun. The longer it wears the more serious it becomes. I'm not complaining though, it's very much like a relationship when you reach that point that you decide that you might want to make this more than a fling...that drydown that was always there but you really start to see catches you and you want to stay awhile.
We were hot and heavy for almost a whole year, through the dog days of summer when it felt like it should be forbidden, a fall, winter, and damp spring cuddling while listening to John Legend and it was great!!! Then something happened and our relationship has gone flat. I thought you were the One but I think I need some space. It's not you, it's me because I felt like the sexiest girl alive when we were together.

Soft, warm, and enveloping. Just as I expected but lighter. I wasn't expecting it to be so close to the skin, I think I was expecting more power, more strength and sillage to it.

A lovely scent to use at any time.

Everything in this has somewhat powdery character. A sweet and powdery, little fresh-fruity beginning loses these fruits after some time. If it were more foccused in vanilla, maybe could be just another one but I figured out the distinctiveness in this one is about juicy plum playing well with vanilla, besides the lily powderiness present in whole fragrance.

Vetiver comes after long: not so fresh for me; I think it's slightly bitter and sour. Despite vetiver features, the base isn't very sour neither bitter, just softens the "dusty sweet".

My mom have it and she loves to death. I think it's classy, can be used for everyday wear or night out. I think in gold when I smell this scent.

On me:
Sillage: Great
Longevity: Very Good (around 7~8h)

I really thought I was going to like this one, since I'm a fan of fruity florals, but unfortunately The One smelled really bad on my skin. It was really peachy, but too sweet and too strong...on me it smelled like the peaches were going bad!! It reminded me a bit of Nanette LePore, which I used to have (and unfortunately that one didn't really smell great on me either)but a little bit spicier. Too bad, this one got some great reviews and I was hoping to love it!

how could i let this get away. i did wear the rose this summer and just got "the one" tester from macy's. My husband and I love both the men and the woman fragrance. I want it NOW! It is just fabulous and I can't believe what I was missing in my fragrance collection! Well I must make up for lost time. BEAUTIFUL,NICE TOP NOTES and I am not really a fruity/floral type but this has warm sensual notes with a wonderful floral powdery dry down.Nice alternative to Miss Dior Cherie because of the softness Miss Dior is a little more sweet than this one but THE ONE is really fresh!

Today took a virgin spray test. AMAZING. I was in the store spraying tester strips (i often do this writing each name on strip with a pen, so I can smell later and remember which was what) When I got to the 14th fragrance (this D&G) I was blown away instantly. Drop dead gorgeous. Nice chunky heavy glass bottle. I also tested the variant ROSE but this, the original, is 'THE ONE' for me!

THE ONE gets a big yes from me . Elegant ,feminine ,yet with enough going on you dont feel like its a safe ,boring scent . Vanilla and jasmine great combo ,but you add plum,peach and lily to the mix ,I dont know what exactly I am smelling but there is a synergistic magic going on .Love it .

I didn't want to but... I like it. There's just something about this that wins me over somehow.

There is no rose in this fragrance and yet the florals come together to create just that, and non traditional rose fragrance that is less what you would imagine a perfume of roses to smell like and more like the real living rose itself. That rose is supported by a strong vetiver blended with the fruit notes (mainly lychee and plum) that creates almost a bubblegum, slightly liquorice scent. Vanilla here is not a vanilla at all, more of a powdery (though not baby powder) sweetness that's just enough to turn this feminine. Though I can imagine that with a different body chemistry this has the potential to be unisex, but for me this is more feminine (albeit a strong feminine.)

Though I didn't want to, I like it. I've never smelled anything quite like this and I would never have imagined something like this would appeal to me if it had not been pointed out by a SA. I don't know if I'll go so far as to ever own a bottle, but smelling it was quite a fun experience.

In a way, this seems like a darker, deeper, more complex, sexier, and less cloyingly sweet older sister to J'Adore Dior or Guerlain Idylle.

EDIT: The sample I received has been sitting here next to my bed and the scent just wafts over to me. I'm slowly falling for this perfume, its just so lovely!

The more I test this fragrance, the more I enjoy it. When you're a vanilla-lover it's hard to resist. This fragrance isn't particularly unusual or statement-making. But I actually like that about it. It's a cuddly, toasty-warm vanilla gem. The peach and litchi blend in really nicely and bring both sweetness and a hint of light freshness. Delicate lily and sensual amber round the composition out. The One wraps you up in a soft, cozy blanket of feminine warmth. I could see this working for either daytime or a romantic evening. It's classy, comforting and elegant.

Very strong perfume, though amazing. I really love this perfume, it's really distinctive. Has a mixture of vanilla, musk and a dash of fruit. A few spritzes lasts the whole day for me. Very long lasting! Lovely bottle also, very sleek and elegant.

Overall I would recommend it. Great for both day and evening, it's a really sexy scent. 4/5 :)

This one is very nice IMO. soft floral,whit a syrupy vanilla almost honey like note .Warm ,sensuel.classy,a tiny bit spice in all the sweetnes of vanilla makes it very interesting.
I tryed this a wild ago and found it to sweet and cloying in the hotes summerdays. but no that the autumn is setting in , and the days getting colder, this is superb. The only thing im a little unshure off is the staiyng power.. at first try (summertime)this lasted for so so long . Now it seams like it fades pretty fast. more off a skin scent.hm.. possible do to the cooler air??
This is not unlike the One Rose . it has the same vanilla base. I love them bouth.

The marketing for The One touts 14 different notes: a rich array of florals, fruits, musk, vetiver, and finally, at the very end, they mention, almost apologetically, "vanilla."

I'm sorry, but all I get is vanilla, top, middle, and bottom, left to right, first squirt to the final trace: nothing but vanilla. (Maybe a touch of peach.)

Not that that's bad. I like vanilla. And it's done very well here. The texture is warm, milky, not too dusty or dry like other nutty or vanilla type perfumes. It's even. It glows.

This is for a girl who is indolent, soft, pleasing accessible. Scarlet Johansson is a good choice. It's the sexiness of laziness.

Unfortunately, I don't get much vanilla from this at all, it was an online purchase because I was so sure I would love it (always spray before you pay!) because I usually love anything with vanilla (Addict, Hypnose, Hypnotic Poison, Armani Code etc) bar anything too heavily sweet. When I spray I just get a kind of soapy, sweet, floral scent and no vanilla at all. Have sprayed in hot and cold weather, on skin or clothes and just can't get it to work for me. All my friends love it though, and it seems to work for most people, so I can see I'm in the minority!

Skin chemistry can work wonders, so don't be discouraged by my unfortunate encounter :)!

An odd multi-dimensional middle-aged scent..

The first 1-2 minute is quite sweet and quite promising....

2-30 mins: The smell of female under arm Body Odour...it is so close to BO, it is hilarious

30 mins - 1 hour: Middle age female scent(45 years old) with an edge of vanilla

1 hour - The end: Vanilla more prominent, could be considered a classy vanilla scent, some similarity in comparison to Dior Dior Homme Intense Original Version, if compared to a male scent, has the vanilla smoky powdery hallmarks, but a sweetness remains which runis the vanilla.. The drydown is the best part

An experience to say the least, not for me, but I can understand why this will appeal to some

I usually like more flowery scents but this is an exception. I was surprised at reviews that this is a light and not lasting fragrance, as it seems strong and lasting on me. I have to put it on very lightly underneath my clothes but I can smell a hint of it all day and it's very nice. It seems different, almost masculine to me but very classy.

I am rediscovering this perfume, and have found that it's much better than I originally thought.

The One opens up with a heavy dose of peaches, fruits, and vanilla. One could almost think of it as a vanilla ice-cream fruit salad which borders on being too syrupy. However, after a short while, it begins to morph into a more diverse combination of vanilla, powder, fruits, white flowers, amber, and a bit of musk. Needless to say, I love this perfume most when it settles down, as it's then that The One's beauty shines through.

In an old post, I wrote that The One smells too much like Black Pearls by Elizabeth Taylor. However, if I were to compare this scent to others now, I'd say it's more of a cross between Burberry Woman/Lancome Hypnose/Black Pearls.

This scent is very, very comforting to me, yet at the same time, quite fresh, too. A very warm, soft, classy perfume. I'm growing to appreciate its beauty more by the day.

Dolce & Gabbana- The One.

Beautiful.
Absolutley F*cking Beautiful. The vanilla in this fragrance makes it very sexy and very womanly. I smelt this on a friend a couple of weeks ago and i assumed it was Flora by Gucci (which is another wonderful fragrance) but when she told me she was wearing "The One" i had to rush out and purchase a bottle for myself. While the drydown does a walk a similar line as Flora. The One is unique and sexier in its own right giving off a sense of confidence and what i feel is...endless possibilities. Lasting Power is excellent.

Just got this and am wearing it for the first time today. I read the reviews and, of course, they run hot and cold. I am somewhere in between after two hours of wearing 'The One'.

I did use the perfumed body lotion with it hoping to give it some oomph as a base. I have very dry skin and need a base for most perfumes.

My verdict is mixed.....liked it when first applied but it seems to be fading real fast....my husband says the silage is almost non-existent. :-(

There is not the first perfume that I have this reaction to.....I will give it a few more days of wearing it to come to any definite conclusion....pretty pricey for a couple of hours of scent. Stay tuned.

More fruity in the heart I think but floral in the top notes....right now, I think it is the drydown....a little floral/spicy (oriental) to my nose. The best fragrance of the lot.

The One was one of the first scents I wanted to sample last year when I started this crazy hobby. I wound up with 2 1.5 ml samples, one of which I swapped away. My initial impression was that it was syrupy sweet, too loud, and not something I could ever wear. I felt totally self-conscious wearing it so I stashed away my sample and didn't wear it for many months.

Well, I broke out that sample this last week and wore it several days and have really warmed up to this well-made scent. I don't find it cloying at all. No, this baby is smooth, well-blended and deep, with a distinct progression from opening, heart and base notes.

It has a gorgeously fresh citrusy opening (that must be litchee), with a warm, nutty and fruity-floral heart that lasts forever. The base is deliciously smooth, rich and sweet. It has great sillage, although I wouldn't call it a monster by any means, if you're careful not to over-apply.

The One has grown on me although, I would not wear it every day, so I still have to decide if it's FBW. But it is definitely a strong like for me....almost a love...almost.

Edited to add: Okay, now it's been scooched up to my "want" list. Very classy and comfortable. Some scents just need to grow on you a bit and this one certainly has grown on me. And it is perfectly wearable for summer, too.

Bought this on whim. So happy I used the testers before opening the box - really didn't sit well with my skin. Way too warm and syrupy. I'm all about elegant and sophisticated, but this smelled a little "old" on me. Needed some fresh notes, I think, maybe something green to mix it up. It lasted all day, though, and it didn't give me a headache, but when I would catch whiffs of it, it was too HEAVY on the sweet. Also, not a very distinctive scent.

Wonderful and classy. Easy to wear. Less sweet than L'eau the one - and I think thats perfect for me. Nice flowers and the base gives me nice amber, vanilla and musk. Great scent.

Härlig och klassik doft som är enkel att bära. Mindre söt i framtoningen än L'eau the one, vilket jag tycker är bra, jag gillar inte för söta dofter. Fräscha blomnoter och basen ger mig en rejäl dos amber, vanilj och musk. Jättehärlig!

Warm, soft, sensual, classy, modern, elegant, romantic, sophisticated, luxurious golden fragrance!
The most prominent note to my nose is vanilla. I smell a tiny hint of peach and some white florals but this is mostly overpowered by the vanilla base.
I’m not usually a fan of oriental fragrances but this one won me over as it has a kind of softness quality to it that doesn’t make this your average dark heavy oriental.
‘The One’ is specially made for special occasions in the evenings for those cooler months.
The sillage and longevity are both great!
And it comes in a beautiful golden heavy glass bottle!

I'm smelling it right now & right off the bat I don't like it. I don't *hate* it, I just find it too floral. The notes I smell strongly are vanilla, lytchi & the scent of a lot of flowers mixed together. If you like really sweet floral scents, you will love this. It's just not my taste.

Oh, I like this one and I like to wear it in a summer. It opens up very creamy and sweet on my skin, I get many compliments when I wear it. I don’t wear it in a winter even though it’s more of a winter scent because it’s a sweet fragrance, it opens up sweet but not in a good way, I smell dusty vanilla on me on winter days. I definitely recommend it to those who like sweet vanilla scents.

i got this one out of boredom, sorry but too much ads, whenever i flip a channel i see it, i got up and said "fine, i'll buy it!!!", i expected too much out of this one, it's not bad but it's not THE ONE either, why? because whenever the scent develops, it reminds me of another fume, i smelled L'Instant, Guess, i even got some Avon fumes like Tomorrow and the combination of peach/vanilla at some point is a great reminder of refreshing ice sheers... not that i hate any of those fumes, on the contrary, i love them all and even have them; but to be the one, it must be a unique and unmistakable scent; the bottle is wonderful, the scent itself is good of course (i'm even wearing it now) but not for special events & whatnot, for me, it's a light oriental floral fume with some hints of sweet notes here and there throughout the journey the spritz takes till its complete musky dry-down, lasts for a couple of hours and smells good but that's it... still searching for the ONE ;)

I have to add something to my review on this one. All day I wore this one day this week and kept thinking what does this smell like, because it reminded me greatly of a perfume I already own, and I finally figured it out... it reminds me a great deal of L'Instant De Guerlain. Funny enough, I think The One actually is stronger and has more sillage on my skin. I will also say after wearing this frag all day I didn't like it so much anymore. I really hate to admit it, but I think it actually became kind of cloying, and I really just wanted it off. A bit disappointed, maybe it's just a little too strong

The One... very well made fragrance I think. I have to compare The One a little bit to Hypnotic Poison, but not in smell.. its the way Hypnotic Poison upon first applying I think it smells awful... but then it opens up into deliciousness when you wait for it. The one is like that for me. Upon first spray I thought what did I get myself into.. I hate it.. and then lo and behold in a very short amount of time, the beauty came out and I was addicted. I literally can't stop smelling my arm because of how good it smells. This is definetely a gem, and I'm glad I bought this one

A nice inoffensive scent, this one. Very pretty with a strong floral element to it throughout, drying down to a powdery, slightly woody finish. I wasn't able to detect any of the fruity elements listed. It's bright, cheerful and noticeable without being heavy, but to me it's just average. A conventional, polite and middle-of-the-road fragrance.

Imagine you are sitting - no, lounging - in a garden cafe on a warm, golden afternoon, sipping peach iced tea and savoring a caramel sundae. You are the best-dressed, most successful person there, completely at ease. Women want to be you, men want to be with you. The world is your oyster...but you're so fabulous you don't even care - you're just enjoying your sundae.

That's The One.

Sadly, the effect only lasts about 2 hours, and reapplying doesn't work - the vanilla builds up and throws everything off. But this is a great One to have in your arsenal for those moments when you need a double shot of relaxed confidence and poise.

Some people do not believe in the concept of The One. Instead they cite that we have many possible soulmates, any one of which we are free to commit to and build a life and a shared history together, the more time and sharing, the more love will grow.
These people have obviously NOT MET THE ONE. The one whose eyes you immediately recognized from the life before this one. The one who sucks your soul out of your eyes. The one who literally makes your heart feel hot as if you are on fire within. Warmth permeates your being. The One that will make you insane with love and leave you eternally bereft if they abandon you. You will never love another, you want to die, you will pine for the rest of your life. Death will be a mercy and life is only bearable with hope.
Perhaps this will grow on me, it's lovely and sweet, but the aura is not warm and magnetic enough. History will not serve to meld us, we might rub along, but ultimately the memory of That One True Love will sour things. I wish I loved you. That's the kindest thing that I can say.

I had always overlooked this perfume because I saw that my classmate wore it... silly me. I have recently got this fragrance as a sample with one of my purchases and I fell in love. And now that I have managed to spill the sample all over me and my bed and I am starting to get a headache I have decided to write a review.

The perfume is nice blend of sweet and spicey. Of vanilla and fruits. For me, it smells luxurious. But not in the way the Chanels do. The Chanels (at least for me)smell luxurious but kinda detached. You can look and admire but you cannot touch. The one smells luxurios but inviting, more friendly I guess.

There is something sligtly synthetic in the composition but it is really easy to overlook.

The sillage and lasting power are great on me. I would definitely recommed to use this with a light hand (I hope that I will be able to enjoy this perfume also after my spilling accident).

Sweet and powdery....to my nose, it's desperately striving to be something between Shalimar and L'instant, but of course it cannot compete with Guerlain. Nice, but definitely overrrated. Good for casual wear, but doesn't rank high enough to be a special occasion fragrance.
I own a large bottle but it's going to last forever, because I have by far more sophisticated fragrances in my collection to wear.

one of my all time faves. Reminds of talcum powder for some reason! Not offensive or too strong in any way, just a gorgeous feminine smell. You could wear it anywhere and its perfect for work because no one would hate it. The only down side to it is that it doesn't last long :( If you wear it on a night out you have to re-apply it after a couple of hours and considering the price you would think it would last longer. Also reminds me of Chanel Allure but The One isn't as OTT.

I have read many positive reviews on this perfume, so it encouraged me to try and at first I really liked, but the passage was changing the minutes until I was unpleasant smell in my skin, completely changed.

The one is a perfume that hits from the first moment, fruity blend of fantastic and attractive output is nice, modern, fruity fragrance , very chic, with a fresh and sweet at once. And the great background, and lost lasting. A fragrance that stands out.
However, when you use it for a while, at least in my case just throwing in need of something, a part is too recognizable and common so even if at first I liked, I have not buy it.
I think that is one of those perfumes that smell in people (that-smell!) and said: UHHHM !!! the one, but nothing more.


Perhaps it was the moment : (

The One's olfactive group is somehow confusing to me as there is hardly anything oriental about it.
To me it is balancing in between floral and floral green group.
It is likeable but I was expecting something memorable, perhaps something that would make this fragrance truly THE ONE to me.
The One is all about litchi, jasmine and lily of the valley on a hazelnut-alike base.
No peach, no plum, no vanilla.
The One is rather a mature fragrance that would appeal to mature, elegant ladies.
Personally, I am not that fond of it and my husband's association when smelling it was that of smelling a quality hairspray. A quality, but still, hairspray.
Well, I have no intention to smell like this, that is why I am leaving my The One bottle for later. I will allow it to hibernate in my wardrobe for few weeks and when I come back to it after that time, I may possibly change my mind.
For the time being - I am so not wearing it.

Sadly, it's not "the one", it's only "one of them".

When The One first came out, I was dying to try it. The name, the gorgeous sleek bottle -a perfume should definitely look like this...- and D&G's reputation got me all excited, I was thinking finally I was going to have that "One Perfume". However, I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I tried it. It was all about a burst of citrus garden fruits at first, then really ugly something, then soft and a little bit of something beautiful, then quite repulsive again and then a nicer dry down... The ficklest fragrance I've ever sniffed, I was like "Hmm, it's good, I guess..." at first and then five minutes later I was saying "Ughh this is horrific...". I was disappointed so I kept well away from The One for years since then.

A few days ago however, I was trying out some perfumes and I don't know what urged me but I wanted to try The One once more. Sprayed it on the arm of my coat and on my wrist. At first, it was nothing special, just a burst of fizzy fruits. But then it turned into an incredibly sweet, soft, nice and catchy scent that I kept sniffing my coat all the way back home and even when it was hung on the hanger :) Though I must say it's not ground breaking or surprising or unique by any means. It's just soft and nice. Very nice. But that's all to it. I'm still on the lookout for "The One Perfume".

i like this very mutch ! it's delicious and very promising fruity and syrupy at the top, then it becomes smoother and creamy, those hints of powdery white petals and sweet-sour succulent plum paired with nice vanilla trails, warmed up with a subtle musk base.

this isn t any risk to be overbaring at all.... i sillage very nice while it lasts... considered to spray it on clothes and hair to have better staying power.
on my skin about 5 hours only... and this is edp! from an edp i expect not having to reapply during the day. too bad at this point but anyway such a great fragrance which can easely distinct from others due its top- and heartaroma. less the drydown - it's sweet and foody but nothing unique though...

add. note: i decided that this one is way too sweet for me and normally i love sweetness but this one is just too mutch for me. it lacks of something calming down or diffusing the sweetness. the longer i wear it the longer it disturbs me to smell like a burned-sugar-stick... can t explain otherwise.

love the add with Giselle Buenchen. the perfume smells indeed like she could smell - sometimes... xD

Very Interesting scent! It is deep and long lasting. I'm satisfied! ;)
But if you happen to try "Rose the One" they have a big similaries upon the opening of the scent. Only this, is with vanilla, a bit sweet.
I find "The One" sexy, modern, glamourous, warm without being cloying. It evokes an exploding femininity creating a distinct, audacious signature. I love it's drydown, it is beautiful warmth of vanilla and sweetened ambery-musk notes that is never over powering.
This scent is so delicious. I kept sniffing myself all day long. I finally found "the one"!!! Highly recommended!

This was received as a Christmas gift and will more than likely be repurchased in the future.

The fragrance is very different from the bottle. The bottle screams big, classic and probably something your mother would wear but it is something entirely different inside. (Quite frankly having Scarlett Johansson with all her bustiness and sultry looks replete with red lips is a bit misleading for anadvertising campaign with a fragrance like this.) There is a very gentle sweetness to this fragrance with the lychee and peach mingling with the rose and lily notes. The result is soft but consistent in its delivery, which is inviting but in an innocent way. I'm drawn to this fragrance because it is fresh and clean but without smelling like soap. It is floral but without smelling like a flower shop and is sweet without the annoying sugar high so many fragrances tend to induce.

If you're looking for something uber sexy and seductive like Angel, Lolita Lempicka, etc., you will not be impressed with this fragrance. If, however, you're looking for something appropriate for work, school, after work drinks, you will find this fragrance reassuring because it will allow you the ritual of applying the scent but without the worry of feeling you have overdone it. Or are wearing something terribly inappropriate.

I looove these type of scents! Warm, fruity and floral all at the same time. This is one of my most sensual scents. Even though I'm not one to use fragrance that much after seasons this one I rarely use during summer, It's more of a autumn/winter fragrance.

I'm using my 2.-nd bottle while having Dior Addict since Christmas :) I got compliments from many people. Its great for evening for summer for any occasion. It's sweet but not too much 'cause it's soft and bit freshy. I love it and all my friends knew me under this fragrance! If I wouldn't be that kind of person who'd need to change perfume after some period I'd use it for sure with 3.-rd bottle...But probably get back to this one buing 3-rd bottle after 2 years :) ! It lasts really long time it's a good quality perfume that I didnt find in Versaces...

I bought The One body lotion and took few testers of this perfume. I found it very similar to my Flora by Gucci EDP, but without citruses in the opening. The same soft and weak scent. Both got very poor lasting power and very classy heavy bottles with golden lids (it really misleads me, because this posh bottles makes people think that it's a fragrances for special occations).
I don't like The One because it's extremly soapy (smells like an expencive soap on me). I can wear it only as a bedtime fragrance or afterbath fragrance.
The One is quite popular in my city, three of my closest friends wear it. I appreciate their choise, but will never buy The One for myself.

I was really amazed at how beautiful this scent was on me. From what I saw of the notes, I thought that I wold be deluged with the scent of the Jasmine. For some reason, when perfumes contain a jasmine note, the Jasmine will scream with my chemistry. What I think actually tamed the Jasmine was the Lily factor.
Interestingly enough when I think of Lily, I think of the strong Lily that I smell around Easter. In some there is a sweetness that is not cloying in the same way that tuberose is, but has some of the sweetness that one would find in tuberose.

OK, more about THE ONE'. I definitely would not consider it fruity as some of the previous critiques have mentioned, but once again, it is my chemistry to which I refer, so either way it was a pleasant surprise.

Interestingly enough, when I first put it on, it actually smells closer to ROSE on me, similar to some of thee sweeter rose smells that have a slight pepper contour to them.
I have to say I really like it. The vanilla and amber really give it a nice rounded quality.
If I am looking to wear something feminine without being girly-girly, this is definitely a scent that I will keep in my collection for those special moods.

Smells like summer to me, not in a sunscreeny way but like cool sand and the clear sea and the breeze through sunlit coastal trees and blossoms...

I don't find it very sweet and I'm not a big fan of sweet. My impression is of light with a little warmth, a hint of something golden and not-quite-spicy that sits nicely on my skin. A scent just feminine enough in a way that isn't trying too hard. Makes me feel like a coolly sexy woman, the sort that travels alone and might be found relaxing in linen on some shaded patio surrounded by green fronds and white blossoms and the sound of water. Walking the streets of Sevilla in a white dress in the evening. The men she does business with talk about her scent after she leaves.

It goes everywhere. Professional enough for work, yet with a definite underlying sensuality. I tried to make it my signature summer scent, but it's really become my all-the-time go-to.

This is my 3rd attempt at reviewing The One, my last two reviews landed goodness knows where! I'll sum up incase this review decided to not show up also...I love this stuff!!! I just need to be very light handed in application or I get a major headache. I apply with a Q-tip that I've sprayed once then apply lightly to my wrists, in between my breasts, behind my ears and near my belly button....perfect! I can smell it wafting around me all day, it's a long lasting perfume even if not applied heavy handidly. Yummy stuff!

Safe, fruity floral. Easy everyday scent in the colder months for an office, but I still think there are better out there.

For me, vanilla dominates in the base. Sillage is good, but this is no cheap celebrity fragrance.

I believe D&G wanted a perfume that no one could really dislike. I think they achieved that, but lacks the sucker punch to turn this from an average to a good perfume.

In my opinion, too safe, a bit boring.

My husband wore The One for men. I loved this woody smell. So I purchased The One for women : when I tested it at the shop I immediately loved it. It was modern and sweet, seductive. But at home, after a few hours, all these nice scents vanished : the lasting power is not so good and I was very disappointed.But The One is still among my favorites.

I don´t know why, but on me, The One keeps giving me this weird hint, sort of metallic, a strange sourness like a mix of coriander or another herb,Sad cause I LUUUV it on others,such an opulent and warm concoction!! Guess my body chemistry curses me on this one...
......................................................
No sé porqué , pero en mi, The One se mantiene aportanto esta rara estela, como metálica,una extraña acidez como una mezcla de cilantro y otra hierba, es triste porque amo percibirlo en otros, que elixir tan opulento y cálido. Imagino que mi química corporal me maldice en este...

Crisp, warm, golden, fresh & fruity vanilla. It smells just like its shiny gold color. A beautiful honey creamy vanilla! Yum!

Well... As I said several times ...Im not a huge fan of oriental floral perfumes.... Buth this one rocks... Omg.... Its soooo warm without being spicy or sweet candyish sugary like other perfumes maded those days .
It reminds me of honey. Yes honey...blended with yasmine and mandarine orange ...

Its simple...yet very unusual. It makes feel sexy and bold

Perfect for cold winter days and for 25+ years old ladies.

Great lasting power on me...and great sillage

I love The one!!! One of my favorite perfumes!
I'm one the second bottle even though it is too expensive.
Men love it! So many compliments!
Elegant, sexy, feminine, words are not enough to describe it!
At first it's peachy and fruity.
Then it is more floral and at the end you will love the vanilla!
Staying power is great.
It is a really unique scent, famous among the women!
A real masterpiece for your collection!

I had a sample of L'eau The One Edt and found something watery banana in there that I liked, so decided to check it out in a store. They didn't hav it but suggested I try The One instead and against better judgment I bought this in a version with a way too heavy purse size refill with four vials.

It took me a long while to decide to like The One and probably the main reaon is that the name "The One" to me is so much the opposite of my perseption of the scent - it's so anonumous! One Of Them might be more descriptive ;) Bad me.

It is, however, a really high quality scent, well balanced, warm and luxurious, versatile, classy, modern, reliable, safe. But not very interesting. And a bit heavy on the vanilla maybe.

Maybe it's worth noting that this scent actually tastes good! Most I've tried taste bitter or something if you manage to get a bite of the air while spraying or licking yor wrist.. The One tastes really great and flowery :) *checks INTIMATE box* The L'eau didn't taste half as good .. for what it's worth hehe

It is a gentle,warm and sensual oriental floral based on vanilla, a perfume for special occasions, a luxurious evening perfume. In my opinion, the vanilla should be hidden better between the other notes, for a more versatile effect.

While testing some womens scents and getting some soaked scent strips for review fodder, my fave frag counter- girl and I were discussing what cloying means...she grabbed the One and sprayed it on paper and said "This, to me is cloying...", I disagree (and promptly snatched and bagged the strip and sprayed the other two for testing and reviews)...cloying to me is so sweet and heavy you can't smell anything else, and this is not that at all...

This does begin on a sweet fruity blend of lychee(lite and sweet), mandarin and bergamot(fresh, tart and zesty) and peach(smooth and juicy), but I do not find it too sweet at all; it is rather refreshing and succulent. The heart of lovely lilies mixed with a dark plum note is wonderful and the green muguet and soft sexy jasmine only add to the allure and charisma of this luxurious juice. The drydown could be manly, if it weren't for all those fruits and flowers floating around in the mix, instead it gives it an oriental musky amber glow with the woody vetiver donating a faint earthiness and vanilla shining over them all. Cloying? To some maybe, to me: a real winner and it gets better the longer it's worn!

Sillage: good
Longevity: very good
Overall: 3.75/5

I love The One for Men and this is a beautiful consort to that scent, well balanced and rich. D&G really outdid themselves on this line and though I often tire quickly of flankers, the scents that accompany these are all nice and I would reccomend them to anyone who likes an elegant and well-made perfume...

THE ONE is beautiful to behold and I adored the scent for the bottle itself.It's lasting power is incredible about 4-6 hours. Upon initial contact, THE ONE smells like a very fragrant pink rose, not artificial at all, resembling the living flower...rose indeed is not a not a note but this is what I get... images of a young woman in a Summer garden, filled with roses, dreaming of the man who has captured her heart. Later, the scent morphs...it is a deeply feminine, soft-spoken but omnipresent vanilla and vetiver concoction.It is warmer, richer somehow...not at all innocent though beautiful nonetheless... It takes me to the fireplace and brings my lover close to me...

I bought this after smelling it in a mag. and was highly disappointed. It didn't smell good on me at all! Lucky, it smells wonderful on my mother. This is such a beautiful perfume. So lush& rich& warm. It seems like a very... womanly fragrance. You can definitely smell vanilla, but it's made more exotic by the other notes swirled around. This is def. something everyone should try on& think about buying! Perfect for evening wear, it's so sensual. I'm just mad it didn't smell right on me!

The One by D&G is perfectly stunning!

The litchi in the opening notes is quite detectable, very delicious; The vinilla can be catched all the time, that makes it so warm. I think this is the most feminie one among my collections. I'm really intoxicated with it !!

PS: the bottle is good crafted with thick glass, it has class.

I mostly like my perfumes to remind me of places, not people - but The One is definitely a scent that has a distinct personality.

The One is a girl with a pout. At first, she seems demanding in a sexy way. . . but as time goes on, she starts to get a little. . . annoying.

The scent never changes on my skin. It starts sweet and stays that way (I think NZsarah was dead-on about the caramel).

While I find this to be pretty and sexy at first, it's just too one-note for me.

I think that it is all about skin . On me it is very long lasting, from 8 to 10 hours... I love this perfume, believe it suits my skin perfectly! I do smell it on many woman and just to a few of them i could tell that smell super, on others it's just didn't smell as good as it should. I find in it some extraordinary notes (maybe mix of litchi and peach + something)that make me sniffing my self non stop... And it doesn't give me a headache and don't think it can be overpowering by any chance on me. Beautiful, special, sweet and sexy smell, but only on right skin.

Me again to chime in on the "not lasting" comment I previously made. The first bottle of this was a gift and The One has just been launched. I thought, Maybe the problem is only with this bottle. So when it was gone, I bought a bottle for myself. Same thing! I spray it on, and it's gone. I mean almost immediately gone.
I also wondered if perhaps my nose is just insensitive in some way to this particular perfume (although I have no problem with any others and love perfumes like most women love shoes). But I have asked people if they can smell it on my neck or my wrist and the answer is always NO. Makes me so sad, because the little whiff I get when I first apply it is SOOOOOOO heavenly.

I tried the One in Macys and was so impressed! So warm, cozy and yummy scent. It wasn't on sale that day, so I bought couple of samples on the Internet. Started to use and... coudn't stand it. Way to sweet and the scent didn't developed in anything else, stayed the same for hours and hours and hours. Maybe it's my skin, but for my taste it's just flat and boring. There no intrique in this perfume. As you can imagine I didn't buy the whole bottle, which is very stylish by the way:-) I don't smell in this perfume anything except lichi for the first minute (which I love) and a lots of vanilla and something else, probably, corn syrup, - for the rest of the time. Where is my favorite bergamot and mandarin orange? Again, maybe it's just me and my skin chemistry killed the perfume.

I was pretty disappointed with this. Its a lovely smell, but I really thought it was going to be amazing. I wanted something to replace my Narciso Rodriguez for Her. Its a very golden fragrance,perfect for the evening, but it doesn't make me say "this is the one!"
A little update,everyone seems to have this fragrance, so dont get it if you want to smell special. Thats why I like to get fragrances from other countries, that way I dont get recognized. Just a neurotic trait of mine!

I love this scent, for me the two most prominent notes in this one are lychee in the top notes and vanilla in the dry down. I don't find this perfume particularly complex as the scent barely changes at all as it moves through the layers but i do think it smells wonderful. It also has amazing lasting power, anything more than one to two sprays does overpower though so beware. My only problem is that its initial intense sweetness gives me a little bit of a headache if the weather is not cold enough. I would classify this as a romantic night/ winter scent/

Just bought this one. One spray and the scent is nice, soft, sweet and delicious. Nothing extra ordinary. It stays close to the skin. Little bit of fruits with soft vanilla. I could wear this daytime too. The bottle is quite luxurious.

Edit. I was wearing this again yesterday and absolutly loved it! A beautiful, yummy, cozy, sexy scent and lasts on my skin for hours and hours! I agree with my earlier comment that this is nothing extra ordinary, but still everything I just said. If that makes any sense! :D

Sweet heaven of vanilla, caramel and fruits. Makes me think of winter afternoons, when I would curl up in the corner with a cup of tea, blanket and chocolate chip cookies.

The One is a very sweet floral vanilla on my skin. I get lots of peach, plum and lily in the first thirty minutes of wear.

The vanilla in The One's dry down is heavy and sweet. It's not a boozy vanilla note, but rather it's more like vanilla cake, or even vanilla frosting-ish, than a vanilla extract scent. On my skin, the lily notes play faintly in the background in the dry down, and I smell the musk too, which adds depth to the scent.

The One is a comforting scent, but only when applied sparingly. More than just one light spray makes The One overwhelming, headache-inducing, and can even make me nauseous. But with a delicate application, it's a comforting Oriental Vanilla.

This perfume is definitely for night and cool weather wear. It's far too heavy and rich for the office, or for wear in the summer heat.

I have already written one review of The One describing it as a romantic nice scent but unfortunately very vague. I deleted the review because a colleague of mine was wearing heavy doses of the fragrance. It smelled like a dessert with too much vanilla and lemon. It was so nauseating to every other person. I had to put it on the "don't like" list.

I decided to give it another chance because I couldn't really believe that such a volatile perfume could be so suffocating.
Once again I get a vague scent of vanilla and citrus. Very nice and "cosy". Something to wear in front of the fireplace on a cold day with the one you love.
In very small doses I find it quite delicate. But be careful, as it can become queasy instead.

In 3 words: PIE-LIKE - COSY - CLOYING

D&G THE ONE is a smooth, subtle, and safe vanilla scent. Yes, there are a few accoutrements, a bit of citrus in the brief opening, a touch of floral garnish, a very light layer of amber-musk in the drydown, but ultimately this is a not-too-sweet white and creamy vanilla fragrance not unlike many others available today.

THE ONE does not stand out to my nose as novel or daring, but given their choice of face, Gisele Bundchen (a former Victoria's Secret model), D&G was probably aiming for VS types, who like nice things but are not usually revolutionaries!

THE ONE is a tasteful blend that is entirely pleasing to wear and inoffensive to those in the environs, as the sillage is rather weak. Anyone who likes fine vanilla scents would appreciate THE ONE, but THE ONE is not unique.

I received this perfume today in the mail from a wonderful member, thanks so much:) And I really really like it alot. I have been wearing it for about 6 hours now, and I can still smell it, so I think it lasts quite well. I don't smell many of the flowers in the middle notes, which is great for me, since I don't really like flowery scents. I do smell the citrus when it is first sprayed, and on me, it dries down quickly and I smell the base notes for hours, which I love! We are snowed in here today, and it smells so warm and cozy. This is one of my favorites and I love it!

I bought this the first week that it came out... I thought it smelled like a nice sophisticated grown-up scent full of vanilla, citruses, plum and a lil spice...
I was right, HOWEVER, it just wasnt worth the $82+tax I paid at Nordstroms for it. While it did smell lush and expensive it had the lasting power well beneath a dollar store body spray... By the 3rd day I had already used 25% of the bottle... Needless to say I made another trip to Nordstroms for a refund...

I puchased this on a whim based on reviews and a strip sample and now that I'm actually wearing this its taking some getting used to ! At first it goes on strong and loud and most of all very sweet.Lasting power seems good since I've been wearing for 4 hrs now.There is alot of depth and personality to this perfume.On first touching my skin,I almost wanted to shower.Considering returning ,but it is growing on me,literally ! Mixing with my chemistry making me feel sexy and confident.Unfortunately,I do not get any fruit on my skin.Its as if the middle notes never present themselves and it skips from top to the bottom.I only am getting alot of amber and vanilla for the most part.I can't yet say if this is a keeper or not.

I have L'eau the One and have been waiting to try The One to compare. They are almost identical (both wonderful) except L'eau the One is just a tiny bit softer. I have a full bottle of L'eau so I'm glad I only picked up a mini of The One. Very soft and warm. Fabulous scents, both of them!

Strange that this is clearly an oriental, but it is such a light and sheer one that I can hardly call it such. There is a weighted base of plum and vanilla/amber that traditionally denotes an oriental fragrance, but they are so deftly handled here that they balance the top notes without dragging the composition down. Lychee is slightly fizzy, smoothly blended with the peach,though both notes are clearly discernible. I smell none of the jasmine or muguet, and the vetiver is also so sparingly used that it harmonizes rather than announces itself. Overall a very well-made scent. Soft and ladylike, this strikes me as being formal while not being black-tie. Perhaps a bridal scent, or a tea party scent.

I'm all for sweet fragrances, but unfortunately this fragrance just seemed too sweet for me.

The opening although pretty fruits, is a little too much like sticky candies overloaded with sugar. Due to this sweetness I would say that The One is a relatively young and flirtatious scent, not something to be taken seriously.

The One does mellow into a warm and pleasant oriental floral, however I can't say that I was blown over backwards by its uniqueness. The jasmine, lily and plum are pretty and certainly wearable, the most pleasant aspect of this fragrance so far.

The drydown isn't bad either, the vanilla brings back an element of syrupy sweetness which made me cringe at first but it was no where near as bad as I thought it would be. I'll give credit to this fragrance for its excellent sillage and lasting power and its sensuality and creaminess. It is unfortunate that the scent doesn't appeal to my nose.

This scent is so beautiful and sophisticated. Probably too old for me... I wonder if I can pull it off, with the base notes of vanilla? Neverthelss, I wear it when I am alone at home, and the smell is soo rounded out, and it just gets better as time goes by. Definately for a woman who wants to turn heads.

i can´t believe how long lasting this perfume is. i put it on yesterday morning and still can smell it around me today.
the fragrance itself is very refined, ladylike and creamy. but imo it does not represent a soft and gentle kind of feminity but a strong confident one.
everytime i try to sniff its scent on my skin i am not able to catch any of the notes, but it is the sillage i can smell very explicitly. the one seems like an fragrant aura.
not too extraordinary but very beautifully done - you can´t go wrong with it.

On my skin it smells a bit like green tea initially. It develops into a warm fragrance which is long lasting and it isn't fruity on me at all. It is definitely an evening wear perfume, not ideal for everyday unless you are a glitzy, diamond necklaces to the supermarket type of gal ;).
I have smelled it on other people and I noticed that on one person it smelled overly floral, while on another person it actually smelled metallic - which was very off-putting!

I was given this scent by my bf who loves it. I didn't like it at first. To me it smelled only of rose, a deep, creamy, powdery rose, which isn't a note. Then I began to understand a little of its complexities and some lingering warmth.It smells a bit old fashioned and youthful at the same time. It is like falling in love with someone you've known for a long time but never considered until in them more than others, you discover something of the extraordinary. The One is a delicate scent and does not sway from its character, though to me it is still a rose by many other notes...

My first impression is how beautifully understated, silken & creamy The One is. It somehow reminds me of those delicately scented dry body oils that contain flecks of real gold: pure luxury.

The One is sweet but not heavy or heady, it is long-lasting, substancial yet light & almost transparent, hovering above the skin, blessing your nose with sensual butterfly kisses. The notes I instantly detect are peach, lily, vetiver & vanilla. I am aware of a deeper warmer fruitiness after half an hour (a very light plum) & the last gasps are of a buttery amber.

The blending is quietly masterful - all the corners have been rounded off & sanded down so that you are left with a smooth, velvety scent that is ultra-creamy with one of the nicest, quietest vanilla bases I have sampled. The One reminds me a little of the original Burberry for women - & perhaps a lighter, young & fruity, lithe cousin of Lalique le parfum.

The best thing about The One is how well it matches every occasion. It is a cashmere jumper over your dog-walking jeans, kid leather gloves to finish off your work suit, a fine silk chiffon stole over your ball dress, a feather stroke over your naked body.

There will never be only "One" for me, but it is straight onto my 'must have' list. If you want sophisticated, warm & creamy, this is it.

The One wasn't love at first smell. On paper it seemed light, pleasant and soft. It reminded me of innocent flowers with a touch of vanilla and fruits. Something about it kept me coming back for another sniff every time I went to the store. Luckily, I became so intrigued by the subtle notes I broke down on a whim and bought this for my birthday.

First off, the paper sample does not give this perfume justice! Its like reading the first and last page of a book and having no idea of the true contents inside. Once this touches skin it bursts with juicy, mouth watering fruits and endless depth. It really is "golden". That is just not found on a paper strip!

I'll tell you what I smell and it may be odd.. I smell bananas, plums, creamy vanilla, marshmallows, lilies and the most gorgeous golden amber. Despite what I smell it manages to refrain from the overly sweet "gourmand" category. The One is romantic, soothing, breezy, warm, tender and elegant..

The One caresses the skin like a loving delicate hug. Just when I think its gone I get wafts of smell seeping through my sweater like a heavenly cloud following me around. I'm like "mmmm where is that great smell coming from" and I realize its me! I find the silage and lasting power to be perfect. I love how it melts into the skin like a warm blanket. The name "The One" fits perfectly. It wears with YOU!

im starting not to like this one. the drydown smells ok, its soft and close to the skin but the initial spray and the first 20 minutes are beginning to make me sick. this fragrance just feels and smells 'empty'. no depth to it. makes my stomach turn for wutever reason. Damn it smelled so good on paper!

This was one of my first buys on Fragrantica! After reading all the reviews I just had to try it. My first impression is deep dark vanilla (which I truly like). I also get some chocolate (another favorite scent of mine). At first try, I was excited and liked what I was smelling. Half an hour later, I had the beginnings of an awful migraine. I thought oh well, the migraine must've been coming on beforehand. I seriously had to take a shower to get it off. I decided to try it two more times just to make sure. The next time I tried it, same thing got a major migraine. Ok, I'm brave! About two weeks later it was time for my third try. Same thing. There's something to the strength or ingredients that doesn't work on me as much as I've tried. Sorry DG The One! I wanted to love you!

this perfume is truly beautiful. it's top notes smell very similiar to dolce and gabbana pour femmme but the dry down is different (i think better. the vanilla comes true but it is not an artificial vanilla but rather a rich earthy vanilla.

everytime i wear this fragrance i get a boost of confidence cause i know i smell wonderful.

i started wearing less than a month ago and it has already become my signature scent replacing organza by givenchy (which i love but can no longer wear because it (organza) triggers painful memories).

When I first smelled this in the store I thought it was heavenly! Very unique perfume that smelled a bit like chewing gum. But when I started using it, the smell irritated me more and more.
I got such a headache from it!

Also.. This is a really common scnet.I smell it everywhere when I'm downtown .. And I must admit that I have such bad experience with this perfume, that if I smell it now, I get bloody sick! :(

The top notes are luxuriant fruity, dominated by peach. I didnt catch the citrus hint. Jasmine and lily are intense, rapidly following the start of this assembly.

Serenity comes with vanilla whiff, bringing indulgent murmur to the user.

The One is wearable, modern and sexy scent. Strength is average and long lasting, provides pleasant fragrance without enforcing itself to others.

For my taste is a bit to sweet, and vanilla shaded.

But, as I hear people love him. Why? Has a metropolis aura.

I just cannot see what the fuss is about with this at all. It seems very ordinary to me. I wore it for two solid weeks trying to find the secret of it, and it was either so well hidden I didn't get the clues, or it doesn't exist. Two weeks and not one single "You smell nice!" is both money and time wasted. Instead of the One, I got one of a thousand similar.

I actually like this scent alot. It opens up as a spicy but somehow peachy scent. Then it remains spicy on me but somehow you can smell vanilla. But it's a very discret vanilla that sneaks around in the background. Not overly sweet or cheap smelling. The lasting power is really good and the dry down is really soft and I can clearly smell plum.

I had to promote this fragrance in a shop when it was released here in Italy and i hated it! I thought it was the same cheap perfume with a nice label. But now i really like it! You just have to wear it for a few hours to get the real scent.. When sprayed on you can really smell just alcohol!

This fragrance is ...pure luxury. Warm, captivating,golden shimmer. Minks on alabaster shoulders, precious stones.It has a little bit of nuveau riche aura to it - may be too colorful, it is like a bird of paradise with an outstanding plumage...I noticed that The One reminds different people of different perfumes. For me it is Red Moscow, only more refined, tamed and primped.
I love the bottle, too - it is nice and heavy, reminds me of a bottles with expensive cognac.

I tested "The One" at a store the other day, and was a bit unimpressed, it Seemed a bit plain at first. Then, while driving home a bit later, I kept smelling this warm but fresh vanilla/skin scent....I traced it back to my own arm, where I had spritzed "The One". Hmmm, Nice! Nothing more, nothing less....just "nice". Might be good for casual, when you want to smell nice, but not make a statement. Who am I kidding.....I always want to make a statement! I'd wear it if I got it as a gift, but I probably wouldn't buy it myself, just not special enough for me.

A lighter, sweeter Hanae Mori; Soft, pretty, inoffensive fruity floral. Dry down is much too sweet on my skin and gets up my nose with musky vanilla. Nice on others, awful on me. Goes on pretty, though: just doesn't last that way.

Like the woman that wears it, the strength and uniqueness of THE ONE fragrance comes from contrast. It opens with an exciting, modern interpretation of fresh fruits, which is followed by the timeless scent of white flowers. The fragrance finally unfolds to reveal a deep and sensual base.
Notes consisting of mandarin, peach, bergamot, lychee, jasmine, muguet, madonna lily, vanilla, amber, musk, vetiver, and plum.

I have this fragrance, and while I thought I loved it, I'm now not so sure... is this fragrance suited for a young woman in her 20s? I'm not sure. There is something in it that I sense in the Cartier fragrances which seem a little more aged than I would like. I'm very torn!

The name says everything about it:The One,it means not comparable to any other perfume,designed for a very particular woman with special manners and character.some one like Cinderella or beauty.
I was in the perfume shop and as you know after testing a few perfumes your nose can't distinguish between fragrances.they all seem to be the same.but when I smelled this one ,the strong warm notes took me and I told myself,I love this one absolutely!the surprising point is that I'm not into oriental scents at all!warm and powdery,ageless and luxe is how I can describe it.I don't suggest it for casual or summer and spring use.but it's great for a huge ceremony in the cold weather or even christmas time.As the gold bottle inspires,it's a luxury stuff.in fact the only reason I didn't buy it,was the price.

After so many comments i'm not sure i can add something new. On my skin it turns out very soft oriental, can't really identify any flowers, but the litchi and citrus notes are present.

A good scent for a special occasion or night wear, its has good staying power and syllage.
It makes me feels somewhat sofisticated and sexy, kind like wearing daring lingerie under a formal demure dress. It empowers you.

I am liking this alot, it has a little of the Fendi Theorema about it. But I haven't had a bottle of that for a few years, so just going by memory, not a direct comparison. It is seems milder than Theorema I think.

It is very nice and I am enjoying wearing it.

It is absolutely flowery fragrance to me, but nostalgic smelling. Initially I thought it is just one flower, rose perhaps, therefore I scrolled through the notes to establish if I'm right, but I guess it is the mixture of Lilly of the valley, jasmine and Lilly that creates this melancholic organically interwoven smell.. fruits add particular sweetness to the smell.
And as I see it is not only me to whom 'The One' brings back some childhood memories :)

Despite some sweetness this is a light fragrance, and hardly can be over sprayed

I'm very pleasantly surprised with this perfume, as I didn't expect something so elegant being produced these days (it's a relatively new product). The top and middle notes are flowers with honey, intertwined with something I couldn't name as I'm not so good in tracing the notes. It reminds me of my childhood - that specific note. Maybe it's a mixture of lilies with apricots, but it can ba amber or musk. It's very soft but highly sophisticated. It would suit a woman of any age and for various occasions, but mostly something special like for instance going to the theatre or concert, or special dinner. You can't be dressed down for this one, it exudes exclusivity and original style.

This is NOT what I would call an obnoxious scent; it is one that recedes into the background and comes out to show you its true fragrance when you're least expecting it. Be careful, that there is a tendancy to overspray this - because at first it has about 2 minutes staying power, before it disappears almost entirely into your skin. But like all oversprayed perfumes, when it hits you, it hits you like a rock - and I actually felt quite sick when I smelt the full force of what I had done!

The fragrance itself I found attractive. It is fruity and floral at the beginning (I can detect peach, mandarin and jasmine...), fresh and light - until it dries down - when it becomes more oriental, with the vanilla taking hold and a bit of honey. I could swear there's a bitter note there also, (but I think I might just be mistaking it for one of the oriental notes...)

The bottle is gorgeous - gold, rectangular and heavy glass. The fragrance smells like it's got a pinch of gold in there somewhere! And it smells kinda special, like "the one".

A good perfume. A great one? Maybe not, but definately a good perfume. It's heavy and a winter time scent, but compared to other nauseating litchi fragrances this is a winner. Not too overbearing, not too soft, just right in that regard. Might smell too much like other perfumes on the market, but as I said, it's worth it simply because you can smell like the trend and not induce vomiting.

im not a big fan of this but dont think its like bubble gum either, i dont know what does bother me in this scent, i wouldnt say its too sweet because i use sweeter fragrances, but somehow its a dull sweetness not lively enough, i cant feel life in it at all, not boring, and not usual because i cant say anything that would smell like this, i simply dont like it not on testing paper nor on my skin, and thats only my opinion, because my bf loves it

I agree completely with Ninulia! Bubblegum on first spray, strange fruity weirdness on dry down. That's all I've ever gotten out of "The One". To me, this is unique, but not in a good way. It merges two genres of fragrances that don't go together - the trendy new fruity florals with the clean classics. Too bad, I really love D&G fragrances.

It is nice and modern oriental-floral fragrance. The one may be a bit too sweet (without being too sugary) when you first spray it on, but it quickly mellows into pleasant soft and subtle scent, it is very fine, peachy, you can wear it both day and night. Staying power is not great, so try using the lotion that goes with this. Put it on first, then the scent on top. Much better than the scent alone. And it develops on your skin, part of its development reminds me of Carolina by Carolina Herrera (or should I say Coco mademoiselle b/c they are similar). Very nice heavy glass bottle with golden cap.
