After launching more than successful fragrance for women, The One, Dolce&Gabbana house will, at the beginning of March 2008, launch a fragrance for men named The One for Men.

Creating this fragrance, Stefano Gabbana was following the idea of creating an uomo, a very masculine fragrance, and a very classic one, "not a banal classic, but a classic men's fragrance that would last for years and be the type of scent that women adore".

The notes of this fragrance are composed in accordance with the Gabbana creator's taste, who wanted to create a woody-oriental composition. In line with that Gabbana said: '"I like spicy-oriental notes and we've never done these types of fragrances, it's a little warmer than our other men's scents".

Fragrance The One for Men opens with sparkling notes of bergamot, coriander and basil, the middle motes bring in cardamom, ginger and neroli, while the base notes create a very masculine trace of cedar, ambergris and tobacco.

The fragrance is created in cooperation with P&G Prestige Product and International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF). It comes in a glass made bottle that matches the shape of The One for Women bottle, only with silver-metal neck and chocolate-brown rectangular top.

The model of the fragrance advertising campaign will be the actor Matthew McConaughey, who will next week join the designers in the NYC. When it comes to the choice of the model, the Dolce&Gabbana designers said that they wanted to have the sexiest man on the planet. And with regards to that, Gabbana adds that this is the first time that a model in one of D&G men's fragrance campaigns appears in clothes.

The One for Men will be available in the US as EDT in two sizes – 50ml and 100ml bottles. Besides EDT the collection will include 100ml aftershave lotion, 75ml aftershave balm, 200ml shower gel and 75ml deodorant stick.

I despise this. I tried it and had to wash it off of my skin... it made me feel nauseous. I also got a headache from this EXTREMELY strong spicy smell. This cologne also comes off as quite elderly to me.

The fact that longevity, projection and sillage are so desired in a fragrance and The One is still widely loved DESPITE it having none of those things is tribute to just how good this scent is!

It's called The One because being a phenomenal scent is it's ONE and only redeeming quality. But what a quality it is! Regardless of it's mediocre performance it continues to be amongst many people's "top XX" lists or even their absolute favorite scent. Personally, I am in the process of drastically reducing my collection and rebought a large bottle of this to be part of my much smaller, much more rewarding collection filled only with fragrances I love. Even after owning and smelling hundreds of other fragrances at all ends of the spectrum, The One made it onto this short list. Big praise indeed.

Think creamy tropical citrus fruits layered with warm slightly spicy, slightly woody amber and sensual pipe tobacco. If you think that sounds like it smells good, you'd be right.

Definitely recommending this one. Yes an EDP version would make this fragrance almost without peer, but for now the current EDT still smells so good, even as mostly a skin scent, that it's worth owning based on scent alone.

this one is my favorite scent of all right now. my most favorite cologne. I don't wear it often because it is so special to me. it does not last long so I will definitely by an (intense version). I bought a bottle for my Dad and I had to by a 3rd bottle because one of my friends who is a missionary from a foreign nation fell in love with it and i let them take it because he loved it so much. So i have bought 3 bottles of this juice.

The One for men is a well made and refined tobacco fragrance and probably one of the few Dolce & Gabbana fragrances which I would actually re-purchase (but i'm not in a rush to go out and get another bottle just yet). What I like about this fragrance is that on my skin it is incredibly warm thanks to the amber which adds sweetness to the tobacco note and in the first few minutes i get a hint of freshness from grapefruit juice which really excites me because it's a nice welcoming before the earthy ginger steps in and sort of takes over my skin for a bit and sort of kicks the grapefruit to the side.

There is a hint of spice from what i guess is the cardamom and i detect a bit of orange blossom which i honestly wish lasted longer on my skin because i love the way tobacco smells with orange blossom but oh well. Whilst I love the scent of this fragrance the lasting power has some serious issues on my skin and apparently i'm not the only one as well.

I was so disappointed the first time I wore this and then 2 hours later found that there was literally no trace of this fragrance on my skin or on my clothes. If the lasting power was better then I would definitely purchase this again without hesitation but because it sucks- i'm not so sure.

It smells great, but projection and longevity are really poor! I bought a sample today, but this is not a fragrance I'd purchase a full bottle of; besides, it's a bit similar (IMO) to CK's Contradiction, and there are plenty of much better fragrances on the market.

My review:
Fragrance: 8.5/10
Sillage: 3/10
Longevity: 2/10

Average: 4.5/10

Probably the best smelling seductive fragrance on the market and It attracts ladies but this fragrance wont project after 30 mins.I only recommend this for sex occasion It only works for this (obviously you can use it casually but nobody will smell you)
Scent : Easily one of the best scents in the game 10/10
Projection 2/10 (maximum 1 hour)
Longevity 6/10 (5 hours)
Sillage 2/10 (Really bad)
Versatility 1/10
Overall 7/10
I know I gave this fragrance a bad mark but It suits its name.You should only wear this when you are making love with "the one" Simple as that.

Dolce and Gabbana used to be my favorite fragrance house, but I'm tired of getting the same juice in a different bottle. Until Golce and Gabbana releases an intense version of The One I'm not buying a single thing from them again. I'm switching to Dior. They listen to what people are begging and pleading for and they provide what people want. Therefore, i have no reason to stand by Dolce and Gabbana, because at least Christian Dior cares about what their customers think.
So D&G it's been real, but I have had enough of your fragrances that don't last longer than an hour.

Christian Dior, HERE I COME!

I immediately fell in love with this scent upon sampling a decant. Strong hints of amber, tobacco, citrus and ginger. This cologne smells gorgeous and can be appreciate by anyone that can detect it.
Love the scent, but hate the longevity. This NEEDS an EDP.

Longevity is no more than 2 hours. After 2 hours you have to put your nose to the skin to smell its scent.

Projection is arms distance the first hour and then very close skin scent afterwards.

Dolce & Gabbana The One is the definition of a crowd-pleaser. Opens up with some light spices and a very noticeable ginger, plus amber. It would be very hard to offend anyone with this and you will most likely smell 'nice,' with moderate sillage and longevity. A deft touch of tobacco comes into play and the fragrance dries down to a 'polished cedar' accord. This is where it loses me: while the top and mid notes are lovely, I don't particularly want to smell like a polished staircase bannister.

I feel D&G The One is a safe blind buy if you're just looking for an easy-to-like, hard-to-dislike fragrance that will get compliments but not set you apart.

Edit: A good, solid, heavy bottle

Fantastic scent, one of the best out there.

As most have said, not a projection beast by any means.

As for longevity, I use the shower gel and the aftershave balm and get very good longevity. I can always smell this the next morning on my skin.

Scent: 9
Projection: 6
Longevity: 7 on it's own or 9 if you use as I mentioned

Really nice manly scent. Would be a true classic and to me one of the best perfumes on the market if it just lasted longer. I mean, less than two hours and doesn´t even project well for one of them. What a shame.

Bought this on a sale, its pretty expensive in normal days.
this perfume is an A+, fits the winter / cold nights, has a sweet powdery orange.
Patchouli lavender and vanilla / tobacco notes rises after 30 monutes / 1 hour on skins (with my experience)
the scent itself for me is 9
the projection and longevity is about 5-6.i wish it stayed more on me.

bottom line - love it and you should try it, i got a lot of "what kind of perfume are you using" questions from girls.

J'ai trouvé que si vous pulvérisez le tout sur le même endroit, vous êtes récompensé avec une riche odeur de beurre qui me rend fou. Il n'est pas obtenue par pulvérisation d'un spray ici et une pulvérisation il. Je ne sais pas ce que c'est. C'est après le gingembre et la coriandre après. Quelque part autour de la demi-heure de. C'est le secret de cette eau de Cologne.

Soft, mild, slightly sweet and slightly spicy. It's refined, elegant and kinda sexy. That said, it really doesn't stand out in any particular way. If a guy has a few bottles of well made designer fragrances, I do not see a reason to add this one to the mix. With so many endless choices for mens cologne, this one can easily get lost in the crowd. If I owned a bottle I'd probably get bored with it after awhile. As a side note, the projection and longevity are on the weak side. Its certainly not a bad choice and a guy going to a job interview or on a first date can do a whole lot worse, but then again he can also do a whole lot better. Overall I give it a B-.

To this day this is "the" greatest scent I have smelled in a men's cologne. It is definitely among my favorites and is an easy reach for most occasions outside of the workplace. This juice has soo much potential that is blocked by is lasting power being so piss poor. But hey, the ladies seem to love it.

The "glass cannon" of amazing fragrances.

9/10 (only things stopping it from a perfect 10 is it's terrible longevity)

"The One for Men" has been a favorite for about 4 years now. It's just one of those exciting and sexy fragrances that your hand will automatically reach for when selecting something to wear from your collection.
If I had to choose which fragrances I have received the most compliments on throughout the years, The One would certainly be in the top 5.
I can't belive so many reviews before mine complain of a short longevity.....because for me this scent is a monster, easily lasting a potent 8 to 10 hours.
Truly, an amazing fragrance for men.

I haven't worn this one in a couple of years. However, I was at the store today and smelled it again and had to get another bottle. This scent goes with many different occasions and situations as well as a good year-around fragrance for me. I think it stands out as more than just another "me too" fragrance among the other more popular offerings on the market. There are some subtle spicy tones that really give it a little more dimension and distinction than other similar fragrances.

One of the very first fragrances that I ever owned even before I started collecting, this was the only scent I wore for a good year. As I have developed in my collecting, I still often come back to this especially for work. True, the longevity and performance problems are an issue. But the scent is really one of the best out there. That coriander and ginger opening makes for a spicy/sweet intro that develops into a rich woods. Very vintage smelling, almost like something you would smell in the 1970s. I truly wish the longevity was improved but from everything I hear the new formulations of this are just as bad if not worse. It's a shame because this would be a top ten fragrance in my opinion. As it is, it's still a very classy elegant scent which will get you a trove of compliments. Just be aware that after about 4 hours, no one will be able to smell it. I suggest carrying around an atomizer of this because you will need to reapply But as far as the actual fragrance goes, this is one of beauty.

If this thing projected better I would love it even more. The scent is fantastic on me; love the spicy-sweet mix for evening (or moderate temperate) use, but it's more suited to a night in, than a night out, due to the close quarters required to properly enjoy it. I do not like boisterous frags such as 1M, (which makes me cringe) but I really wish this stuff had the projection of 1M.

Outside of intimate encounters, it's going to be one I wear for my own enjoyment; such a comfortable and easy scent to wear. Granted, I'm sure that's why most users of this site wear their favorites; the enjoyment we get from them.

Edit - forgot to mention longevity. I get a good 6+ Hours on average, but sometimes it will just keep trucking all day and I can still smell it in the evening. Recently I wore it in the morning and couldn't smell it on my forearms when I headed to the bar so I sprayed some Givenchy Play Intense on my wrist (tester) before I went out. The next morning I went for my 6:30am run and I got a whiff of something. I thought it might be the Play, but I smelled my wrist - nothing. Smelled my forearm - bam, the one was shinning through almost 24 hours later from me sweating it back up. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised, but I don't expect that kind of performance daily. Just goes to show how variable scents can be from one situation to the next.

Absolutely brilliant scent, despite not having one natural ingredient! I love spraying my designer suits with this, they smell brilliant afterwards. Sillage however is not so great. And longevity is laughable. I highly recommend combining this Molecule 01 for a longer lasting effect and more sillage.

Here I am wearing Dolce and Gabbana the One for Men again. I have a pretty large collection, including a lot of niche fragrances, but I keep reaching for this fragrance in the late Spring/Summer. Why? Because it smells great. I get compliments on this stuff and while it is not a projection monster, I don't really want it to be anyways. The combination of tobacco, ginger and woods gives this a very sexy but subtle vibe.

This fragrance does have decent lasting power, and I get a decent 5-6 hours on me. The sprayer shoots a little bit of juice, and while I am a typical 3 spray person, I'm usually spraying 5-6 of this. I also use the deodorant and even the body wash.

I do NOT wear this in the winter/fall, so projection/longevity is not a problem for me.

I cannot say that this scent has poor longevity. For me this works just fine, I get roughly 8 hours with it. Projection is not loud indeed, so I agree with that. But I find that its "short life" reputation is greatly exaggerated.

Moderate projection is fine by me too because I enjoy wearing it in romantic type of situations, as opposed to going out/clubbing or what not. I am not wearing this scent to be noticed or to make a statement.

But wow, it is just so good! Drydown is amazing - very cedary with resinous sweetness and a touch of ginger. To me this could well be the unifying fragrance that brings the best from the Tom Ford era Gucci line - it slightly reminds me of Envy and GPH at the same time.

Signature worthy, imo.

In terms of smell, this is The One.
Such perfect smell, my oh my. Lovely, tenderly sweet, romantic, warm, pleasant... this would be my perfection if could be real, but sadly it's all a cruel short dream that evaporates as soon as you touch the heaven.

Yes, after you start enjoying the fragrance so much the nightmare comes out. Horrible projection and awful lasting power.

I don't own the bottle, but have a couple of samples and tried a few times on perfumeries when I decide to give it another try, praying to be different from the others... but it's always the same.
Winter, summer, happy day, in the morning, in the afternoon... it always feel so weak, close to skin, and doesn't last more than 3-5 hours in my skin.

Recommended for indoors: the office, family events and specially close dates at home with your girl, or that one you want to conquer.

I had a decision to make: Vera Wang, Tom Ford, or DG the One. They are all very similar in smell but I believe DG is the superior fragrance. Four things that really stick out with this fragrance: lemon, orange blossom, ginger, and amber. Plenty of people consider this smell super sexy. It even gives off a coconut, tropical vibe. I really enjoy wearing this fragrance in the spring because the warmer weather provides that extra little oomph with projection on my skin. At best, I probably get 6-7 hours out of this fragrance.

This fragrance is a very sexy fragrance, very masculine and smells delightful. Unfortunately, it doesn't last too long on my skin, and it doesn't leave a trail, not does it radiate from me. This is perfect to wear when you're close to your significant other, as they will smell it, but people from a metre or two will not. If Dolce and Gabbana made this so the longevity and sillage are much better, than this will be one of my top ten fragrances.

Like everyone else I love this scent; it's masculine, yet women really love it too. Also, just like everyone else I wish it lasted longer and projected better on my skin. I would love to wear this out as an evening/date scent, but that's not going happen since it sits way too soft on my skin. Fortunately, it's a great cuddle scent so I wear it for an evening in with the missus. Dolce & Gabbana would be wise (are you guys listening?) to make 'The One' an EDP - the costs would be minimal and the fragrance folks would love it.

this is more of a question .... I really enjoyed the scent when i had this.. I bought it from fragrance net.. but the scent died in like 10 mins literally.. I have a good nose.. It really did die in minutes. now why is that... is there different formulations..does where you buy the bottle from make a difference.. Maybe people who are getting it from macys are getting fresher bottles.. where as maybe online sites aren't stored as good, or older juice? I am starting to think there is a reason for such vast differences in opinion other than nose fatigue.. I am starting to think where you get your fragrances might matter.

just to note:
guys if you are having a hard time smelling scents like this i know it may suck but try spraying it on your clothes on your shoulders where the scent is closer to your nose so all is not lost..i am having to do this with my Guerlain Coquin and now i smell it...i think there are some scents your nose tunes out but if you put it close enough there is no way not to smell it and for a good amount of time...i know i know, you shouldn't but to feel justified just try it..perfumes stay on clothes longer because they don't go down in any pores of skin so they settle and stay longer and stay true to the actual scent.
this is a lovely fragrance not to smell it..that's how i feel about my Guerlain Coquin i wanna smell it too..hope this helps!

The scent is amazing, but I have no idea what's going on with the projection. I did one spray on my wrist and I'm getting it on and off, but someone 8 ft away from me can clearly smell it

The ginger and tobacco accords are sublime. It's got a little bit of sweetness to it as well.

I swear to God I'm not lying when I say this stuff confuses me.
I'll wear 10 sprays and nobody will say anything.
I'll wear 2-3 sprays and someone across the room within 30 seconds of entering says YOU SMELL AMAZING!

Personally, I think it is light, but apparently it isn't.
I guess our noses just becomes immune to the smell.
Which really sucks because I want to smell it too!
Also, if I spray in the bend of my elbows, it actually stays there longer than Fahrenheit from Dior. So I believe we ALL know how potent Fahrenheit is, either way I love them both. I'd still choose Fahrenheit over The One, because The One DOES NOT last 3 hours in the winter. It is a hot weather ONLY.

I wonder if I am the only person on the face of the earth who has ever said that 3 sprays of this has lasted 10 hours or more on my skin. In fact, I had worn this to work one day a couple of years ago and even after having it on for about 8 hours, I got a compliment on it from someone a good 5 ft. away, all while applying maybe 2-3 sprays that morning. The smell is awesome as well. Definitely something you could wear on a summer night or in the spring. I don't really think it would work very well in really cold weather.

This subtle smell is pure elegance- when you can smell it. My bottle is six years old, and I do remember it being more noticeable when I first owned it, but the projection is very limited for this. Longevity is decent for a designer frag.
On to the smell, I always notice new things about this when I wear it. Most apparent is the grapefruit in the beginning, with cinnamon highlighting it. This citrus is what makes it wearable in the Spring time as well as Autumn. However, the softness of The One discourages Winter use; simply not enough "oomph" to cut through the cold. About a half hour after spray, the grapefruit is gone and what is left is a sweet and spicy aura, with most recognizable notes being amber, clove, and cedar. The tobacco, instead of being its own note, seems to envelop the entire aroma and make it richer. To my nose, this fragrance is very sweet and smells like it is colored, probably will not repurchase because of the price tag and the slight projection. It is great for close quarters, though, lots of compliments!

I really love the scent and i don't think i'll ever get tired of smelling this fragrance. But as all of you who have read the reviews of others on this most comments say that it lacks the projection and longevity and sad to say... i'm afraid i'd have to agree with it according to my experience. But it really smells great!

Smell: 10/10
Projection: 4/10
Longevity: 5/10

The achilles heel of this masterpiece is the sillage.Unfortunately longevity is very poor too. This is a perfect close quarters scent.
Lovely and delightful scent in a nice looking bottle. You could smell citrus on top notes for a short time,and then the tobacco, amber and the ginger in the background but all mixed in a sweet way...the dry down is awesome.

Scent: 10/10
Projection: 5/10

I simply cannot relate to the complaints of this fragrance lacking projection and longevity. I wore this fragrance extensively when I was in my early 20s as my go-to night out scent. I vividly recall all of my clothes smelling like this scent: the many nights I spent after the club with a mate, leaving their sheets smelling like me - the many days I woke up and went to work, still smelling of this scent. Although I rarely wear it now, it's still my signature scent based on the memories and outstanding performance. Perhaps it's my chemistry that makes it work for me; unfortunately D&G the One Gentlemen has absolutely no longevity or projection for me.

I rate this frag 9.5 out of 10. It is the epitome of versatility as it is mature and classy enough to wear as a workplace fragrance, but seductive enough to not be boring or generic. At night, it's a prime time performer that is sure to make you come off as refined, chic, and masculine. It's more of a cooler weather fragrance, but it's perfect for summer nights. Overall, this is the fragrance that you cannot go wrong with if you want to simply smell good.

This is a very pleasing, clean, modern male fragrance that reminded me a lot of winter holiday get togethers and galas. The sillage is respectful but teases, the longevity is generous depending on body chemistry. The drydown reminded me of extremely subtle version of Chanel's Egoïste once it has become less predatory and finally settled down lol.

Being as it has familiar ingredients, I liked this fragrance for men because it smells like a MAN. One too many times I am tired of smelling the gauche, über-trendy, redundant, monotonous "male" perfumes that smell entirely geared to the kind of boys that freak out over growing a little chest hair or having to change a tire.

Great to see (smell?) that some designers prefer to keep their fragrances unquestionably masculine. MMMmm MMMmm -purrs-

I just got a sample of this in the mail. It smells absolutely... celestial. It seems to have an alright longevity, but the sillage is not good at all. More of a night scent because of this.

For the price, you can probably find similar scents that perform better for less. I'd buy it just because it is so addicting to smell.

I really cannot understand the problem with longevity that everyone is complaining about, this stays on my skin for at least 9, 10 hours! and sillage is very good because I get compliments every time! For me this is one of the best and one of the most original everyday, casual fragrance.

OMGoodness!..I am a Woman and i am so drawn to this scent..even if it don't last long just put some in a portable travel spray and reapply and your good! This smells fantastic! The amber,citrus and spice with that masculine touch that is smooth is amazing...My Husband has to buy this..MEN BUY THIS!I can totally see women drawn to this its warm and inviting.Sometimes we think the scent is not there but it is..ever had the experience where you put on something you hated and you noticed it last for hours? No difference with something you love..sometimes the nose just becomes immune to scents after time...yes some linger but i notice alot of times we don't smell scents on ourselves that others will notice..and even if its a skin scent..that is ok for the right person to be close :)

I received a sample of it a few days ago and my first impression was "did they send me a feminine fragrance?" Then, I looked at the receipt and it was actually D&G The One for men. I cannot understand how this fragrance is classified as "a very masculine" because it is not at all, IMO. This fragrance should be advertised for women and not for men because it has a VERY feminine smell to it. I do enjoy the smell but I would never wear it outside because it would make feel uncomfortable wearing such a feminine fragrance. The color and the bottle of this fragrance made me think that it is going to very masculine, but unfortunately it totally disappointed me.

The One is a dreamy, soft powerhouse. Three or four sprays and I am enveloped in sensual grapefruit and an underlying soft sweetness. It waxes quickly, totally filling the room with its aroma. Truly, this is one of the most beautiful things I have ever smelled, a masterpiece.

Smell 10
Sillage 7.5
Longevity 7.5

As you probably have experienced, most of the time this elixir tends to have poor lasting power and close to skin projection.
Now, variables like type of skin, or sprays quantity might affect positively or negatively but most of the time they will end up with the same result.

I really do hope D&G comes up with the same smell but as an Eau de Parfum as I truly believe that they could rule the market for quite a while :)

This "one" smells too rich and masculine to call a perfume; it's more of a Man Oil. I can't get over how attractive I smell when I wear this one. It smells like a wealthy young gentleman who knows how to impress a woman with his classiness. If I'm going to fork over the money for a bottle of expensive juice, it better make me feel like such a gentleman.

I find the silage to be decent, but not high performance. That's Ok. I think most people complain about the silage because it smells so good they want it to fill the room, but it doesn't. It sits a little close. For longevity I get about 6h.

The bottle is also elegant. It has a 1950s design to it.

Cant stop sniffing it, love it.

The one

Love it or hate it frag! For some it is too sweat, too floral, too feminine....for me it is a perfect mix of sweet notes & spices, it smells so damn good and very masculine to me. My GF absolutely loves it and so do I (it’s my signature frag).

3 sprays last 6 – 8 hours on me, so I have no problems with longevity (guess I’m just lucky & the One works well with my body chemistry). Projection is average though, but that’s the way I prefer it to be.

At least give it a try and test it on your skin instead of paper!

I was a huge fan of the smell, but returned it due to what I perceived to be it's poor sillage/longevity (which others seemed to concur with).

Fast forward to a couple of days ago in December. A limo driver friend of mine starts up a conversation with me and I immediately smell (and recognize) it from a good 4 feet away. It's 2pm, and I ask him how long ago he applied it, expecting him to say an hour or so ago. NOPE. Applied only two sprays to each side of the neck at 6am and still going fairly strong 8 hours later! I had to ask him a 2nd time out of disbelief, only for him to indeed confirm.

Either he was lying out the ass, or this frag is a longevity BEAST that I guess produces olfactory fatigue pretty easily and hence gives false impressions of weak longevity.

Considering repurchasing this now....

I was just shocked to see the "This reninds me of" section and notice Villain by Ed Hardy (well, Christian Audigier). I had Purchased Villain prior to The One and loved it. I thought I would never wear somthing ED Hardy but now know why I liked it. It (Villian) is a fun version of The One. Nither have good silage though, which is sad. The One is (sadly) the best perfume created by the house of D&G since Dolce & Gabbana BY (Man). I love the smell as do many. It makes me comfortable but excited. It's both pleasant and soothing, while carrying a vigorous sensuality. Still a Masterpiece even for what it lacks in other key areas. It is a scent I will always keep on hand.

Theres a lot of fragrances that I can argue to my nose smell better at certain points. But in terms of through out the whole fragrance top to bottom in terms of smell this is still probably my faveorite to this day. I dont find it paticularly complex but theres enough going on that it never gets boring. I believe that it has been reforumalated at least twice. I know once because newer bottles do have different ingridents listed however I have not smelled the newest version myself. I dont think there is much to complain about smell wise for this one. A lot of people compare this to a sorta tropical fruit punch with spices etc. Just a great blend of many pleasing notes. But id like to note that although people say this is fruity this is deffintly not "juicy" by any means. And if anything it can smell if anything quite dry almost to the point of having a plastic qaulity to it. The main complaints for it of course are its longevity and projection which admitedly are spotty at best. My orginal version of this was quite a bit better and getting 8 hours out of it was pretty reasonable and sometimes even longer. A "newer" bottle I have it I tend to only get around a spotty 4-5 hours, and with some luck sometimes I can reach 8 hours. However with both versions projection is never that strong and generally I dont expect for someone to smell me more then a person or so away. Compliment wise its a great one, if the person can smell you. So in short longevity and projection are spotty at best, so if you want something to last you all day your gonna need a bit of luck with this. But in terms of smell its a great one.

Instead of releasing shitty flankers, D&G need to get their heads screwed on and release an EDP or Intense version of this. The scent is definitely not as strong as it used to be or as beautiful, i dont know if its just me. It was warm and thick in the best way possible, just downright sexy. It used to smell so rich and distinct and projected for many hours, now its just a dull shell of what was a true unisex masterpiece (at least in me and my best friends opinions - we are both females). Please release an EDP Dolce!

Pina colada in a bottle.

Top of citrus notes, which burns off incredibly fast.
The rest of this fragrance is an amber bomb. There is a little ginger and tobacco in the background, but you basically bought a heavy amber fragrance.

However, longevity is shoddy at best. Projection is poor, unless you have skin moisturizer, where it will then be tolerable. Close-to-the-skin fragrance.

For the price, Chergui is better. But if you bought this because of a lack of access to chergui, not all is lost. Just use a moisturizer and you will get better results.

This is an example of typical current designer fragrances.
It's like water with a little odor of tobacco and spices, made with cheap components that sells itself only by the name of the brand and its advertising.

No smelly but it's too boring.Perhaps for everyday at the office if you don't want to attract attention.

The sillage is very, very low.

One of the most pleasant scents I ever smelled. I had this fragrance and I will buy it again.

I only have longevity issues with this fragrance like many other people which I find weird, because most fragrances tend to stick on my skin for a good while, except for a few which I don't like anyway. Maybe I had a bad bottle, I'll update this post whenever I can get my hands on another bottle.

I really enjoy the way this fragrance smells but I am a bit disappointed about how close the sent sits on the body. Some other perfumes I have worn radiate a little more so that if it is on my wrists, I can smell it ( so about an arms-length for sillage), but this one has a very small area of effect.

It is a personal preference of mine to have more sillage in a perfume so with that in mind, there REALLY isn't anything I can complain about in regards to this fragrance.

I enjoy the Amber, Ceder,Tobacco, and Ginger scents that come off of it. It reminds me of older gentlemen that might wear this on a day-to-day basis while at work because it isn't a loud scent.

This is a great Perfume. :D

Started wearing this today.

*puts shirt over nose*

What i get from this is a soft/powder (not baby just a powder like) smell.

I'm trying to think of another smell that zings but not finding much else.

It's definitely a colder weather fragrance as that powder style can be much in warmer weather.

So just picture a kind of muffled ( if i can use that word for a smell instead of a sound ) smell that wraps around the nose, that is soft yet masculine without being overpowering.

On the compliments side...

Got a few, notice at work when some were closing in on me then smiling about it ( women ) and 1 guy complimented it ( a co-worker lol )

I say grab this, use it in the fall/winter time, casual is fine...even a night out could be a-ok.

The One is an interesting fragrance. It is sweet, fruity, woodsy, spicy, sharp, and smoky; an interesting combination for sure. This scent is quite linear yet at the same time I feel it smells a little different every time I spray it on. I believe that means it is well blended? Overall, all those accords mentioned above give this scent a very warm and elegant charm. Longevity and projection are awful. Such a shame...

Try it for sure.

Ok, Gentlemen...let me say, as a woman, JUST GET THIS. This is one of the most delightful fragrances I have ever smelled on a man. Ever. The love of my life was wearing this the night we met. When we danced, close, my head on his shoulder, this what I smelled. My. God. When he ran out of it, I bought more. This is, by far, my favorite fragrance on him. I smell sweet, yet masculine tobacco, lovely, rich amber, and sophisticated spices. This fragrance is appropriate for most occasions. Others have mentioned a less-than-average longevity, but this lasts a very long time on him. When he wears this before we go out, he's lucky to get out the door, 'wink, wink'.

I love this fragrance so much,so sexy & sensual,classy,elegant,warm and it smells expensive.
It's a 10+ for the scent but here stops all the good things about this fragrance!
It's such a shame that this beautiful fragrance,after one hour becomes a skin scent and after another 2 hours it's almost gone,maybe more if you use another The One body products.
The projection it's close to the skin,i don't mind that,if i wanna intoxicate a room full of people i use 1 million or l'instant de Guerlain.To me The One it's the perfect choice for a romantic date, maybe a dinner at the restaurant,dressed nicely.
It is fit for night use at any season,age 20+ yo.
I wouldn't recommend this when u're going clubbing,it's too weak for that,it's gone before you'll hit the scene and have the chance for someone to see how great it smells..:((((
Once my bottle of this one is done i won't buy another for sure!
An intense long lasting version of this fragrance would be awesome ,i would buy that in a heartbeat,otherwise it's not worth the price!
Scent amazing :10/10
Longevity poor: 3/10

The first time I tried it, I think the tester had gone bad or something. It made no impression and couldn't be detected by me and my girlfriend. I tested this out again recently at a different store and can finally understand all the great reviews.

The One is better than all the other D&G male fragrances I've smelled. It is warm, sweet, and sensual. As it doesn't project well, this will only be enjoyed at close contact. The tobacco, amber, and ginger blend well around the cardamom and grapefruit to create a crisp yet creamy and inviting perfume. I asked several women in the store for their opinions of The One on my elbow, and the responses were all positive. On my skin, it actually lasted all day and evening.

I'm glad I gave it a second try!

THE LONGEVITY/PROJECTION OF THIS FRAGRANCE IS BAD.

Now that that's out of the way, lets focus on the fragrance itself. This is a wonderful scent that is very masculine and warming.

Perhaps my favorite note is the grapefruit/citrus infusion in the opening. This creates a tropical vibe that sold me when I first sprayed this.

I am a college kid and I am an introvert who doesn't like to stand out or attract too much attention in class. This is the perfect scent for me because I like to be smelled only by those in close proximity to me. I get way too self conscious wearing loud fragrances in quiet, static settings like classrooms or lecture halls.

This is a perfect scent for a college student!! :)

I really enjoy this cologne, just imagine smelling a cigar that has been dipped in a fruit punch.
I just wish they would reformulate it to last longer and the silage is fine with being moderate as long as it lasts longer.
I can get away wearing this cologne here in the Philippines tropical weather at night times.
The scent actually lasted a bit longer here in the Philippines due to the tropical weather compared to when I was using it in the US.
But still not enough longevity for a very nice smelling cologne in my opinion.
I would give this a higher rating if it lasted longer on my skin.


EDIT:
If I am going out for more than 4 hours, I always bring a very small 3ml atomizer so I can re apply. I suggest you guys do the same if you think that the longevity is an issue. Problem solved!!!

My overall rating is 7.5/10

My wife bought this scent for me when we were in town after trying a couple of different ones. We both loved this one the moment it touched my skin. It is warm and spicy, but not too strong. I definitely want to keep this one. My wife loves it when I put it on, and I notice, which makes me feel good. The One is a masculine scent and, though it is not overpowering, still stands strong.

Another store inner elbow test: Very good initial impression- smooth and spicy, but not too strong. Got ginger and amber notes with a hint of citrus. Four hours later, scent still easily evident though close to skin. By then, ginger notes faded with tobacco a bit more evident.

This comes across more as a good blend in vs. a standout fragrance. I would feel very comfortable wearing this to a job interview, or any other situation. Although not willing to make this "the one" for my rotation, I could see this being a "next one" for future purchases.

I got this as a gift about a year ago, and thought it was generic.

Today, I tried it again and it's wonderful! I don't know why it stuck in my mind as an ordinary scent...? It was a nice surprise to re-visit this one after a false memory of it.

The smooth background amber, with the top spicy ginger & grapefruit is just very nice.

I Really like this one a lot :)

This is such a beautiful perfume!

It opens with strong coriander, projected well, the basil comes second and i honestly couldnt smell the citrus in top notes, the middle is filled with cardamom and orange blossom water, Ginger as well, then comes the best part, the base notes, with Amber strongly projected, Tobacco and Cedar wood.

Pure beauty, may project sometimes as an Arabian perfume because of the combination of cardamom, orange blossom and Amber, but this is a well mixed perfume that is going to be a classic. the best of the ONE series so far for men.

Sillage and projection are great, this is one of the fragrances that won't stay long on your shirt, but stays our on your skin, and i have to say it's also one of those that smells different on different skins. you should try it first, its stays at least 5 hours on me.

I also thought that The One, The One Gentleman and specially Bulgari Man didn't last more than 10 to 15 minutes. Then somebody in BN suggested that I did a test: when I thought that I couldn't smell it anymore I would ask somebody to try to smell it and all the time the person said he/she could smell and in the case o B Man that it was quite strong. Somehow some fragrances produce a sort of olfactory fatigue and "we" think it has dessapered. It is a pity though because we sttop smellig a scent that we like, but others still profit from the scent. I hope it can be of any use, but it is not the scent's fault.

It's a very good evening scent and I personally think (not that it should be restricted to purely this season) it's a very good fall/winter fragrance. Maybe on a date or something. I like it a lot, but it's too sweet for my taste. Picking up lots of vanilla, probably from the amber. I might pick up a bottle to have around if there's a time I feel like wearing it, but otherwise, not my style. Also, to everyone's complaints on the longevity and projection issues, on my skin it stays strong and projects well for 5+ hours.

A pleasant scent that I used to appreciate more and more. The first time I try it, i found that it smell a little bit like muskol, but the more i used it, the more i love it. Receive a lot of compliments while wearing it, so the projection is good. I don t have any longevity issu with it, doesn t hold all day, but it is acceptable, about the average. A little bit expensive if you don t take it on the internet, but i got mine at the duty free and it was very cheap. I think that it is a safe blind buy or a safe gift, very versatile. As some says here, if D&G make an EDP with this, it could be one of the best men fragrance ever made. Anyway, good job Dolce&Gabbana! I love it very much :)
Here is the final score:

Smell: 8,5/10. Smell good, unique.
Longevity: 3,5/5. Last for about 4 to 5 hours on me.
Projection: 3,5/5. People (girls) notice it, but seem to fade quickly. Mayble to weak for an occasion that you want a projection beast.
Versatility: 4,5/5. For me, it can be wore all years around, every season and every occasion, not to strong for office or hot summer day, (didn t try it on cold weather yet) and can be wear at night.
Overall score: 20/25. A must have to every one.

I wasn't keen on this when I first came across it...but now I've had it on my skin properly I've fallen for it.
Just to echo the other reviews I definitely get the notes of orange blossom and gorgegous tobacco, warm and incredibly sexy. Just getting nicer and nicer as well gonna get this one. I think the ladies will love it, definitely one for the evening too.

Opening: A mix of amber, and Orange blossom. Then strong cardamon. Its warm and spicy. A light masculine touch.

Dry down: More amber, and heavy tobacco. The tobacco is sweet and creamy giving almost a tropical vibe. Smell of a coconut and coco lotion. Its smooth and relaxing with a hint of the orange blossom lingers on the top.

Projection: Low , but initial hour people will notice.

Longevity: Some say its not long but I get 6 to 8 hours. Its light but stays.

Overall: One of the most sensual and sexy fragrances ive smelt. Its beautifully done and well mixed. Comes off sexy but almost tropical. Hard to determine the exact reasoning why its so sexy, but whatever note or notes it is im in love.

Purchase: YES!

A very very good men's fragrance which unfortunately doesn't last on my skin. Vanilla and tobacco notes are pretty noticeable along with coconut-like and leather accords. The bad news is longevity, it lasts about 30 minutes-1 hour on my skin. This one is a must-have for every guy with a high sense of class and casual elegance.

I received this as a gift from my grandmother when I first got into wearing fragrance.. I was obsessed with my Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme at the time.. When I first sprayed this I noticed that it was very different from Pour Homme, and I was not sure if I liked it.. The more and more that I wore it the more I started to appreciate The One.. I am sniffing it right now as I write this.. I can detect all of the notes very well.. The mix of citrus, spice, ambergris and tobacco creates a beautiful sexy, classy, tropical smelling scent.. It is not that powerful but I do not think it was meant to be.. This fragrance was meant to be soft but inviting, not overpowering or in your face.. It is very unique to me because it smells so tropical, but it is warm an spicy rather than fresh and aquatic.. It works for me best in fall but it can be versatile to a certain degree.. It is something that can be worn on a date or to a special event, because it is sexy but classy.. It is one of my favorite from the house of Dolce & Gabbana and I definitely think they need to release more fragrances that are in the same league as this.. I love it!

I can't say enough how lucky I am to have this last on me for more than 10 hours. I also get fairly decent projection with this, and I have very dry skin! On top of the great performance on my skin, it smells beautiful. Soft, elegant, spicy, creamy, woody, sweet, and definitely masculine. If this doesn't last more than 5-6 hours on your skin, I do not recommend purchasing it because it could be a waste of money. But otherwise, this is a great scent that every man should have in his collection. I will be purchasing it soon.

This fragrance is real perfection!

I'd say it is definetly more of a winter fragrance. It's very warming from the moment its applied, soft, very woody and spicy but in a tasteful way. Its also got a slight creamy smell to it.

Simply put, this a very elagent, sexy fragrance.

I always get compliments from both sexes wearing this.

The only downside, as mentioned many times in the other reviews is that the longevity isn't too great which is such a shame! 3 - 4 hours for me I find.

They need to make an intense version of this.

Still, an amazing fragrance, one of my favourites.

I ended up buying a full bottle of D&G The one after a month of searching and had to decide between La Nuit and this. And oh man.., this scent is really2 amazing, smells luxury, modern, mature, sensual and seductive. It is not strong but subtle, projects and sillage are moderate but long lasting. I'm lucky with its longevity, most people here complain for its bad longevity, but i get very good longevity, it can take 8+ hours on my skin. It projects good within 2-5 hours after sprayed and then turns to skin scent and lasts long..

Scent: 10/10
Longevity: 8.5/10

Meeeahh...

Test this 3 times now. From the very first time, I didn't like it. To me this smell makes me instantly imagine a man wearing a womans underwear (makes me laugh and want to leave)

Now, to test my theory that this is actually a womans fragrance (not even unisex) I did the following...

I have a (female) friend age 51. She likes fragrances but she doesn't have theoretical knowledge she is unable to "google it" see what is all about etc. To get an idea about her she likes/wears Empreinte Courreges for women + Cool Water Davidoff for women (and others of course)

Now, I decant some of the juice from DG the one to a small generic bottle, put a sticker(label) on it handwritten "D&G The one" (just that without specifying if it's for man/woman)
Went to her and said. "Here is a new sample for you to try if you like... enjoy".

Few weeks later a came back on her... "any impressions? did you like it?"

and she said: "oh yeah it was a nice every day (morning) fragrance, I use it mostly for going to the bazaar - nothing special or expensive though, like all my friends said."

SHE DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE it was "a man's" fragrance... neither she or her friends.

[Note: When I wear GPH2003 she almost want to have sex with me, DHI she love it as well she finds it manly not lipsticky, Joop Homme... the same, so you get the idea]

I have NOTHING more to add... there you have my verdict.

So much hype over nothing...

(I know some of you may hate me but, that is my opinion... heartbreaking or not.)

Oh, I do not wonder at all Ladies might like this Beautyfull Amber scent. Sorry Guys, I think woman can also carry this One if being brave, but sparingly. Only one sprits to neck or decollete. Sweetness in this makes this very much wearable for woman too. Gentlemen give Your Gf a try. This scent can behave a bit different at her skin than Yours and is absolutely adorable for both of You. *Smiles*

Some people really enjoy this in the heat. It's not my preference for the summer but rather for the cooler temps. Again this is what I prefer.

** The first time I put this on I noticed a woman rather close to me on the train. It didn't bother me because it helped she was quite attractive. So I guess that means this is a thumbs up.

comentar sobre The One é fácil,por que The One é maravilhoso e agradavel...o defeito é a projeção:muito fraca(próximo demais da pele),aplicar em torno de 8 sprays para alguem ao seu lado,em um cumprimento,em uma proximidade de meio metro. aroma delicioso e romantico.fixaçao mediana.

When I first tried The One I thought to myself: God, this is the masculine version of Shiraz! (a lovely and currently off market chypre fruty fragrance by the Brazilian Natura).
Sweet and smooth notes of tobacco and amber come strongly with the top notes and leave marks in one's senses. Quite comfortable and close-to-skin this one is. It is a shame it does not last very long, or if it does on some skins, will not deliver a strong projection.
However, it IS a fragrance of refinement, elegance and seduction. Try it at least once.

When i wear this.. I feel me rich. I feel me good, it made me laugh. I feel me sexy , and complete. Every time i wear. wow, I love this shit. i can wear it everywhere. But mostly i like it in the night. To me , all season fragrance, but most for, Spring and fall. Love it Love it Love it, this smell's like a very smooth tabacco mixed with some berry's and Orange blossom. Wow', in the beginning you smell sharp citrus mixed with some orange blossom and creamy background, to the mid of the fragrance you get more orange blossem and the citrus fly away just amazing, so sexy, to the end it smells very creamy and sweet. it last on me like 4/5 hours. enough but not great. Projection sucks.. sorry.. but it smells so amazing so deep and romantic.

Ssyed1--no, I don't smell similarity with pi neo. The One has amber base and neo has vanilla, but that's it to me. The patchouli in neo makes it smell completely different, airy and somewhat earthy sweet. The one is close to skin and rich tobacco sweet, lightened/spiced by ginger, but again that's just me.

Beautiful fragrance for sure, elegant and modern but considering its longevity and projection, all my hopes to buy it vanish in thin air; exactly as the fragrance does on my skin. Buy it only if you have money to buy this every 1-2 months, since you will have to bath on it to keep the smell going for at least 8 hours. Disappointing!

I have longevity issues with other fragrances that I love such as AHS, however I do consider these a small price to pay for the pleasure of D&G the one to last on my skin for over 8 hours. My climate has a lot to do with it I am sure, burning through my juice like crazy!

2 things:

1) Before you write "The One" off as short-lived (based solely on the negative reviews here), go to Sephora and get yourself a sample - My girlfriend and I found that, on me, this lasted for around 6 to 7 hours (1 to the neck, and 1 to each forearm). In case you're wondering... at the 6th hour, I still got wafts of the scent and I didn't have to bury my nose into my arm to smell it. You may not get the same longevity, but it smells so good that its worth a shot.

2) This doesn't project well off of my skin but I like it better that way. I wouldn't want all of my colognes to have nuclear projection because sometimes I want to keep things close-quartered. I find that the "personality" of this fragrance is complemented by a modest amount of projection.

Btw, does anyone else smell the resemblance between this and the givenchy pi neo (blue)?

I tried this in a shop, and loved the scent, so I purchased a bottle. It smelled divine but, after I walked outside for just 20 min, and got to my destination, it had completely disappeared. The longevity is awful, why when you make something so sweet and addictive, also quite masculine, why haven't D&G Made it last longer? They should be advertising this scent, for others to appreciate, but it fell short, scent 8/10 longevity 1/10

I love this scent. The longevity isn't great, but I don't like it pungent either anyway. I don't really like the smell right out of the bottle. I find that it smells better on me after it "sets"

I spray it before I get dressed and I do my make up and hair (I'm a girl), so by the time I am out the door, the scent has chance to blend with my natural odor.

One of the best scents i have smelt, its rich and luxurious the notes work so well together, it gives a tropical vibe but not sunny coconut tropical a more relaxed, calming boozy tropical. its also very versatile all year round fragrance, perfect signature scent, but i would say a cool spring/summer evening is wear this fragrance is more suited.

Its light, boozy, creamy, fruity, sweet and rich but staying masculine with the underlying wood and tobacco notes. This one of the nicest smelling fragrances, everyone needs to try this.

BUT!! when it comes to strength, sillage and longevity it falls short. its a fragrance that in order to be smelt by others they would need to be intimately close. no one who appreciates good fragrances will dislike this. Maybe D&G were going for the light, subtleness with this fragrance or knowingly made it weak knowing people may need to purchase more, i don't know but its a real shame!

Definelty worth buying it just for personal use or people extremely close to you. would be a straight 10/10 if it lasted even slightly longer. Overall 9.5/10 (if your lucky enough to get a good lasting smell from this then i envy you)

I get 8+ hours longevity which REALLY surprises me since I don't get the best longevity all that often. Soft, close to the skin but that's just the way you want a scent like this.

One word for this fragrance... Sexy. This is a great date/between the sheets fragrance. I know the longevity leaves a little to be desired, but if you wear this to the right occassions, then is just fine. Romantic dinners, date night with your lady, between the sheets, etc. Don't try to wear this as a work fragrance, it smells great but you wont get a full days work out of this fragrance. Bottom line is that it smells sexy and women love it, you just have to wear on the right occasions.

I received a big bottle of this D&G fuel injector cleaner and I've rarely worn it. I still have so much of the it that I want to sell it on Ebay. It should be called DMV. I recall that it lasted days on my skin or perhaps it burned itself into my brain like an acid etching. It sits on my vanity shelf like an amber glass brick daring me to spray it on. Its just too damn MACHO and I'm Spanish-Italian. A few years ago I couldn't go out anywhere without smelling wafts of it, so it quickly became repulsive. It conjures a sweet honey colored syrup mixed with testosterone and viagra. Although I'm certain there are many women with Jennifer Aniston's hairstyle that love it, I'm not going to wear this ever again.

This is the one for men I have never smelled something better. I also wish it had better projection; but that's why D&G have the velvet fragrancd collection....that's where we talk strong.

I feel like they purposely make it lighter than it can because not many customers want a heavy fragrance that's going to fill a room....if that were the case the revenues would drop

If this had a nuclear-powered projection, it would've been one of the best male fragrances ever to be unleashed. This would be a compliment-getter (if it had sillage), this would be a masterpiece (if it had sillage) and so on. It's a damn shame, this fragrance is one hundred percent perfection scent-wise, but that aspect of it is completely defeated by the miserable projection. Could have been a potential classic, hopefully they release an eau de parfum. And if you're going to blind-buy something, make it this, it just smells too damn good (just the right mix of sweet, spicy and powdery) to be unappealing to any human being with a functioning nose.

This is a wonderful fragrance. I cannot believe that I sold this back in January after wearing it 2 or 3 times in the winter. I am glad I bought another bottle, because I cannot help sniffing my wrist every hour or so.

Yes - the longevity and projection is not great. Having said that, I would suggest the following to 'amp' up 'The One for Men':

- get the deodorant version and wear it with the fragrance
- create a body lotion, by buying a small tub of fragrance-free quality moisturizer and spray 5-10 sprays into the tub, stir with a metal spoon and screw in the cap and let the mixture cure for a day or overnight. Rub the fragranced lotion all over after a shower and then apply the fragrance. You'll project a lot more and have greater longevity.

Love this fragrance. I will be wearing this all spring and early summer before it gives way to lighter scents. This gets LOTS of compliments from the ladies!

I think this smells good NOTE I am a smoker so my smell can be off and I am not an expert. I get a more of a sweet scent on my skin I do smell the spiciness. Not very sickening sweet just a nice smell. And to me the dry down is rather smooth and creamy. I just bought the bottle but it seems to last not long on my skin but I also spray on my clothes. IDK if it was made before the reformulation but I bought a tester that comes up as being made in Feb. 2010. Although the longevity could be because as a smoker I tend to over apply to cover up the smoke on my clothes. I know over applying is a No..No on fragrances but I have not had any complaints that it is too much by either my ex or my mom. People always complains that my bro smells like a french who*e cuz he applies way too much but tend to compliment me. I think it lasted a good maybe 2-3hrs and rode close for about 5. I like this but I think I still prefer YSL La Nuit de L'Homme. I just fell in love with that scent but I think YSL maybe more for cold weather where the one is good for hotter months/days. I would recommend this scent.

The One is a beautiful scent that is sweet a little spicy and woodsy. Unfortunately this thing doesn't even last for an hour on me, not even a skin scent just gone poof!! Maybe it doesn't work with my chemistry or maybe it is a marketing ploy to catch your attention, make a good impression but have no substance. May be "The One" has sinister connotations as 99% fillers The one % real ingredients. A very sexy and alluring scent, just wish it had staying power.

sweet,fresh with hint of tobacco. its like your dipping tobacco in a sweet drink or something like that. i like the amber on this one prominant its what makes the scent sweet especially on the dry down. the top notes is what shines for me middle so so dry down very good. all of this transformation happends quickly as the life of the scent does not last you have to spray 10 times just to get projection after 2 hours its basically a skin scent i have 2x5 ml samples of it and ive used it all. I cant see myself buying a full bottle because of the poor longevity and projection for me in my opinion a fragrance is useless if it does not project or even last i hope dolce makes an extreme version of this one or an edp i think it would be awesome.
longevity 6/10 4-5 hours 2-3 hours skin scent you have to find it.
sillage 4/10 poor just poor what a shame you have to drench yourself with it just to get somebody to notice you.
over all smell 9/10 great smell thumbs up
uniqueness 8/10
price vs quality 6/10 please if you plan of buying this go online please dont pay retail for this 75usd retail not worth IMHO.
versatility id say all year long.

9/10 times I show a customer this guy they love it. Really one of the best fragrances for guys who want to change it up but are too afraid to get out of the citrus/sporty range. Don't be shy, this one is SEXY once it's on a body and even off a blotter card. If you want compliments get out your wallet. a 5 out of 5 because of price, longevity, and bold bottle design for the modern man!

I like this scent in cold winter months in the evening. I just wish it lasted longer and had better sillage. I think instead of buying this again I will buy YSL La Nuit de l`Homme. YSL is a bit sweeter but seems to project better. Similar, but different.

pure. greatness. in. a bottle.

this stuff, is..wow.

i have had it for almost 2 years now.. and it is probly my favorite smell out of the 15 bottles i own.

it is sweet.. but if i had to pick one word to describe the smell. DELICIOUS.

this shit gets you compliments and the ladies love it.

i would recommend it for anyone 18-20 and up.. great scent if your looking to do the DIRTY work ;)

but also just a great all around cologne.. fall/winter is most likely when you should wear this.. but MAYBE can pull it off on a cool summer/spring night.

overall i give this a 9/10... if it wasnt so close to the skin it would be a 10

I wouldn't recommend it if you're in your early or mid-twenties. Older women compliment the smell, but women my age (mid-20s) have never mentioned it and I wore this stuff on and off for a year. It's pungent and has a strong tobacco smell. It's not a young man's scent.

I wont say much about how wonderful The One is as the rest of the reviewers here have already done a good job. But I'd like to help with the longevity issue.

Many longevity problems relate to having dry skin.

If this is the case you can improve longevity by buying a bottle of unscented Lubriderm moisturizer (cream). Spray (2 sprays should do) some of the The One cologne onto a dallop of cream, in essence creating a homemade version of The One body cream and apply to your neck, chest and arms. Let the cream penetrate your your skin (usually within 5 to 10 minutes). Then apply your usual cologne dosage directly to your skin--in my case, 2 to the neck and 1 to the chest...sometimes I also spray the mid-arms once.

You will see better results. Actually you can do this with virtually any cologne with the same issue, or not. Enjoy

Yes yes yes. This perfume = yes.

Spicy and woody, but not overly aggressive like an Aramis would be. Doesn't assault your nose, and can be worn day or night, casual or formal. Very light and almost fresh-y kind of scent.

Sadly it doesn't have much of a punch when it comes to lasting a long time. It slowly seeps away and fades into a light pheromone-y smell after a while. Good in some case, but I enjoy the scent too much to enjoy it doing that.

If I were to describe it in 2 words - 'versatile' & 'alluring'.

I love this fragrance it is a classic but suffers on longevity and projection however my tip to improve this is to apply some unscented moisturiser or even the one for men moisturiser. I do this after I shave and this lasts a good 8 hours instead of the standard 4-5 hours.

The scent is warm spicy and slightly fruity sweet, the orange and ginger blend so well in the heart with the spice and tobacco emerging towards the end leaving a nice warm spicy tobacco dry down.

recommended 25+, mainly for dates but very versatile. Visit my website mrproductreview.com for more reviews.

An excellent fragrance. I can't even really describe it. Warm from the very beginning with compote fruit like opening, ginger, tobacco and amber. Wears close to the skin but lasts 6-8 on me depending on amount of perspiration. I'll probably get the aftershave balm for layering.

Edit: yes the sprayer on this sucks. This is one of the few fragrances where I apply at least two sprays to each side of my neck and maybe 1-2 to my chest. (Which is rare, I guess I have oily skin because I have no problem with projection or longevity. I also apply lotion generously after each shower.) I guess I have been spoiled by chanel.

A friend once told me that he hadn't bought anything of Dolce & Gabbana for years (he was referring to clothes and accessories). Well, I can adapt his words to tell not only about the clothes but also perfumes. There was a time it was interesting to purchase and smell something of D&G, for example, for men By and By for women. The dry down is terrible and disappointing, terrible projection and the fragrance is nothing innovative / awesome. It can be included as one of the worst woody and spicy that I've smelled. Really not worth much worth checking out (after all, DOLCE & GABBANA and the price isn't so nice) and there are other more interesting options, even though much more expensive. Really, I hate this line The One. This's not an exception.

I've discovered I really like this stuff.
I had narrowed my recent scent search down to between The One and YSL La Nuit.

Based on scent alone, I preferred The One.

You guys were scaring me off with the longevity/projection comments but since I usually have pretty good luck in that department and I actually prefer medium to low projection in my scents, I went for it and ordered a bottle. No regrets.

It's a masculine, sensual and well rounded evening (maybe even daytime) frag.

I like this one! It starts out rather strong as if you have just stepped out of a perfume shower but, after a while it simmers and blends with your scent. What i like is that it doesn't overkill. It lingers there on your skin and it goes well with humidity. For someone who likes strong perfume, this one is just right. I would personally prefer it to simmer just a little and have a better silage.

This is always my number one choice for date night with the girlfriend, it also happens to be her favourite out of my collection. I think the reason this isn't everyones favorite is for its longevity, which even under ideal circumstances is 5 hours (at least on me).

Simply the best scent for the subtle situations and always a pleaser. Since it is close to the skin it is perfect for romantic situations and alone time with your significant other. Do the right thing, and add this to your collection.

The One is a decent offering from the D&G house. I find it to be a much warmer fragrance than tropical (as I know some smell it to be). From this frag I get sweet tobacco, amber, and a thick/sweet orange. The orange note reminds me of the citrus found in Diesel's Only the Brave. Unfortunately for me, this is why I don't like this scent as much as other people. It's way too sweet to be worn during warmer months and it's projection is far too weak to be used during the colder months. Even if performance on this cologne were better, I'm not quite sure I would wear it during the colder months because I find that sweet citrus so off-putting.

Regardless, it's very unique and if it performs well on your skin then you're a lucky man because this fragrance is NOTORIOUS for making ladies weak at the knees.

Out of 50 I would rate this a 35.

I don't know what it is about D&C colognes that they don't smell right on me. After doing much searching I found The One. This cologne is perfect for office wear. It is very soft and subtle. The tobbacco notes are very warm. It does not last to long on me though, 3-4 hours tops.

I had an interesting conversation with a pretty young woman at the counter in a Fragrance Outlet. "What men's fragrance do you sell the most of?" I asked. "Whatever I want them to buy," was the answer. "I can get any male to buy Dolce and Gabbana's The One," she said. (I told her, "Not me - I've smelled it.")

But I know what's going in the average young guy's mind: "If she likes this stuff maybe I'll find a girl like her wearing it. Or even her!" Thus yet again we see the power of a pretty face over the average male. Are the perfume houses aware of this phenomenon, I wonder? Payola.

----

So, remembering the pretty gal at the fragrance counter I'm trying out The One for a day. It's the scent of spices with a mild tobacco note. It's... okay. It's safe. It's a men's fragrance for men who aren't really interested in fragrances.

This one doesn't project much, so it would be hard, I think, to get enough of this on yourself to become an olfactory nuisance.

From the promotional copy: "The model of the fragrance advertising campaign will be the actor Matthew McConaughey ... the Dolce & Gabbana designers said that they wanted to have the sexiest man on the planet. And with regards to that, Gabbana adds that this is the first time that a model in one of D&G men's fragrance campaigns appears in clothes." Clothes! Gosh. That's mighty bold of them.

So, is this... The One? No. Not for me, anyway.

In a pathetic and desperate attempt to have this scent, but stronger, I sprayed Rocks by Original Penguin over La Nuit de L'homme. It is extremely close but lacks the tobacco, making it sweeter. Plus the apple note still comes through. Glad I did it because the combo is magical.

However, The One for me is "The One That Got Away," and I'm not the only one obviously...

This is my signature cologne, which I use regularly. It has a versatile scent, which I found useful as my first cologne when I entered college and got an internship. It doesn't carry far, which many have already brought up. I don't mind since I don't want to walk into a room and overpower people. However, I do wish it had more strength and lasted longer, 6 hours is the longest I've gone noticing it. I agree that they should make a more concentrated version, as I don't think you can have too much of this!

It has nice spicy, oriental tones, with the smell of tobacco in a way that is pleasing and not too mature. Definitely masculine, with a fruity twang in the beginning. I notice grapefruit the most myself. I've gotten plenty of comments from women with it, but never thought of it as being good for romantic use, then again it is called "The One".

I find it alluring, confident, and masculine. Perfect for me because I didn't want to use Acqua Di Gio and smell like every other guy I know, and the spiciness contrasts well against the flood of aquatic colognes that are popular now.

One of my favorite scents but the projection and longevity are very weak after 2.5 -3 hours. But it is a good snuggling with a partner cologne for up to 6+hours.

Wish they would solve the issue with the strength of the juice if they did it would be far above many other scents.

good scent, girls love it, bit on the femme side but thats why the women love it! doesnt last as long as D&G pour homme, sadly. but it actually lasts over 6 hours, i would have rated it long lasting and arms length sillage, but this is my experience....
up to 2-3 hrs sillage is arms length, but 3+hrs the sillage is extremely close. and i find it difficult to define the longevity because it definitely lasts 12hrs , i can still smell it on my skin, but other people can hardly smell it after 4-5 hrs unless they are laying against your chest. (i spray my chest)
anyway... great scent, reminds me of armani code, which is a killer cologne so this is really good stuff too. 9/10

I do love this scent! and I dont throw that term around lightly. It really is a masterpiece that could be used in any situation, party or play and would be adored by all.

IF...

If it had even half decent longevity or sillage. This completely ruins what would be a masterpiece that I would make my signature scent and would continuing buying forever.
Even when wet on the skin the scent is weak and fragile that disappaers to barely projecting an inch off the skin within an hour.

Dont waste your money on this. Im very concerned where D&G is going with its mens range after diluting down pour homme and then this flop.

This is basically Mustang Cologne( $19 ) with maybe a hint of vanilla. Just purchase Mustang (EA fragrances) from walmart.com. However I think it is being discontinued.

I also get a nod to CHEMISTRY by Clinique in this one . There are a few simialr ingredients. Chemistry was amazing but not talked about much on forums like these. The new reformulation is NOTHING like it was.

I think Mustang has better staying power than The One. At least on me it did.

I stopped wearing this because of its popularity..A lot of my friends use D&G the one as their GO-TO signature scents..and previously a co-worker acknowledge I was wearing it, and said it smell good on me and she used to buy it for her ex..*SIGHS*...ONCE someone recognizes and name the scent im wearing..i stop wearing it or wear it sparingly lol..i like to be different from everyone..when you smell me I want you to think of me..not be reminded of somebody else!!!

Amazing and unique opening, terrible sillage and longevity. I was really disappointed with the performance of this. My deodorant projects more than this. Which it such a shame cause it smells amazing. I couldn't wear this out because cause nobody could smell it on me, so i ended up just keeping it at my girlfriends house and using it when im around her so that she can enjoy it up close and before the scent dies. But i guess that is why they call it The One, because your wife or girlfriend is the only one who can enjoy it. D&G really needs to make an intense version of this, it would no doubt be a top seller.

Of the couple hundred fragrances I have sampled and worn this has far and away the worst longevity of any of them. Really baffled as to people getting 3-6 hours. I often got less than 1, and sometimes only half an hour before it stuck to the skin for another 25 minutes. This is why I sold it.

Scent wise it is a great fragrance, and would be one of my favorites of all time, if only it were still there by the time I finished buttoning my shirt.

This fragrence is a great twist from your ordinary scent. You get hit with a great tropical scent at first, then dries down to to a smooth vanilla with a hint of that tropic note. I personally use this fragrence for more intimate times. Taking my girl out or any close quarter event works to perfection. It isn't too loud and doesn't offend. I can see some people not enjoying this, but 98 percent would consider this a tropic twist that shows elegance and even a sensual close quarter scent. A must have in my lineup.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with what people are saying about it's longevity and sillage. The smell I'd give a 10--I LOVE the smell but it just doesn't last or project the way I'd like it to.

If they ever made an EDP of this that bumped up the projection and lasted 6-8 hours I would consider it good enough to become my new signature daily scent.

As for versatility, it's good for almost everything--work, going out with that special someone, clubbing, etc. But the longevity and sillage...Man, what a tragedy.

I find this fragrance VERY sexy and masculine on a man. It's not for high schoolers. I'd say any guy 20+ can pull this off. It's incredibly warm and mysterious with leather and tobacco tones. Simply delicious. The only reason I'm not buying it for my hubby is because I'm not so sure it's good for everyday wear. It's definitely a night time fragrance. If you're looking for a catch-all frag, pass on this sex-in-a-bottle.

My favorite D&G scent.

Opening: Brilliant, spicy and woodsy from the word go. The ginger really blends well with the heavier basenotes to create a sweet and deep scent.

Sillage: Decent enough, this is definitely more of a subtle scent. Even though it is, dont overapply it, let it be subtle.

Longevity: This is where it gets low marks for me. Although it develops great into its deep bases, its just doesn't last. Sad, it has such potential.

Best for: An evening in with someone special. Great in the Late Summer/Fall/Winter. Evening or nightime.

Overall: The greatness of this smell is its mellow base components, the tobacco isn't sharp and the woodsy smell is divine. I wish for an EDP. Needs to last longer. Again I must say don't overapply, let it be subtle, then apply again in a few hours if need be. Given its shortfalls, its still worth a buy.

This was my signature scent for a long time. More than a year I wore this all the time untill I got really tired of it.

I bought some other fragrances and now I open up my wardrobe I catch myself smelling D&G The One every time and I actually LOVE it again. Now I only wear it occasionally and that's where you want to put this fragrance...
A great occasional scent to me for moments alone with the gf at home or eating out. Definitely not suitable for a whole day wear since this stuff has amazing longevity and projection issues.
It is a real shame that such a great scent doesn't last.

I get a lot of tobacco and amber in this "one" and that's quite unique since most designer fragrances nowadays tend to stick with fresh herbal sports-EDT's or woody/musky-based EDT's.

This is in a league of its own and to be honest this would still be my signature scent if it was not for the longevity/projecting issues.

D&G do me a favour and make the exact same "The One" as an EDP! Thank you very much.

Opens with a fresh scent of mild, blended grapefruit and some other ambiguous fruity components that I can't discern. Tropical is an ok analogy. The development of this scent is great. The fruitiness and grapefruit become less prominent but still stay there. You don't open with something and get something completely different, but the scent is still not linear. Because of the fruity accord and lack of pepperyness even in spite of the cardemom, I think this is not classically masculine but still is able to remain in that zone because of the woody base.

The longevity/projection factor is the big question with this one. In my point of view the longevity is ok, but this one becomes a skin scent quite fast. One factor concerning the projection may be that the sprayer is very spartan. You get maybe less than half of the juice than from other fragrances.

Scentwise I think this is quite safe, but the performance is indeed a factor that should encourage you to try before you buy.

this one has a very classy smell. i wear this almost on every occasion, casual or formal.

i have no problem with the longevity, on my skin it lasted around 7-10 hours, projects very good on 1st-2nd hours, after that it will become close to skin. some may not smell the scent but actually it's still there.

I just bought this stuff after trying it on at macy's while looking up the fragrantican reviews at the same time. I was sketched out about the longevity and sillage as I mostly only go for buys with big numbers in both now, however, I couldnt not buy this. The smell was justwhat I was looking for...Something very different, but yet so manly. So i bought it.

In all honesty, the reviews were right on. It doesnt last long and projection isnt that great. That doesnt scare me way as this will forsure be a special night out scent.

I think this is the PERFECT date night scent. Because of its lack of longevity and sillage, your date will most likely be close to you so she will smell The One;)

We were out for a walk with my husband, not for shopping, but we reached Macy's and we thought why not, let's go in. As usually I wanted to have a look at cosmetics and try new perfumes and as usually my love started complaining and asking me to hurry up.
I told him OK I will and I continued looking around and there it was, a lovely bottle with a wooden top that I picked up to try and... have you ever heard about love from the first sniff?
I called my dear one to come and try this and he wouldn't, so I threatened him and he came and tried it for my sake only!
Now he is very glad he did, because he finally found a perfume that not only smells incredibly on him, but it lasts and lasts until the next shower and lingers on his clothes for days...
"The One" by Dolce&Cabana is a truly masculine scent, sensual and inviting, not too sweet, nor too spicy and thank God not loud either, you have to be close to smell it, or even better in his arms...

*this replaced the "L'Homme Libre" by Yves Saint Laurent

*A TIP: the one in my life, always uses deodorant from the same line with his fragrance and I have to confess, that in certain moments, this practice let's just say that, eh...enhances the fragrance's "impact"

LOVE LOVE LOVE this fragrance. Initially you get that very subtle grapefruit rind note in the opening mixed with spice. the grapefruit, it's not overpowering at all. In fact, I'd say you really have to look for it or know it's there to notice it. I also get a lot of wood and that nice light tobacco note all the way through. Ladies absolutely love this smell. Reminds me of a nice cool night out. Maybe a classy bar with a lot of wood. I don't know. Longevity and projection are serious issues but that makes this scent wearable at work or school. I don't want every cologne I own to have beast mode projection and longevity. As long as you accept this scent for what it is, i consider it a MUST add to one's collection. This AND The One Gentleman, I would compare to a stock benz or a BMW with dark tints as opposed to other louder scents that might be considered lamborghinis or ferraris. is the ferrari better than the benz sure, but if you want to attract less attention you go with the benz.

Wonderful fragrance. Smooth, subtle and not overpowering. Most rate this scent as being moderate in both longevity and sillage, however, I found it to be much longer lasting.

After spraying it on in the evening, I could still smell it on myself at noon the next day.

Ok... The scent itself is amazing. The base notes are always there. The middle and top notes mix but if you sit and study the smell you can pick them out. I find this to be very wearable, altho it could seem like a older scent. It almost reminds me of something my dad wore, but the new school version (some probably wouldn't like that, but my pops was my hero).
Like i said, the base shines... My nose can pick out the tobacco, the wood, the amber. The top and middle notes make the spice and the herbal like feel. With the floral note in there to give it the right sweetness. The scent alone makes it a masterpiece imo, but this is where D&G let a lot of people and me down..
It does a vanishing act that would make Kayser S'o'ze say "what the... Where did it go?"
It's a scent that smells awesome from the time you spray it on, its gonna develop, its gonna dry drown into something even unbelievable...
"And like that, POOF! He's gone..."

Its amazing not everyone have the same taste in cologne. I love this fragrance especially for the winter. What works for me might not work for you. If I was to go by the comments made by people on this wed site I'll be lost. I love this fragrance and by the look of it look how many comments this one generated. Best advice go to your local store sample some on your skin go shopping let it dry down and then see if you like it or not keep in mind not everyone have the same chemistry.

Well Im a woman who loves to wear this cologne. I wanted a scent to wear on hot summer nights out to make me feel sexier. This scent is warm and sweet with a dark base of rich leather and tobacco. I adore this cologne. My body chemistry keeps the scent true, without change, even after a couple hours when it starts to fade.

Nice Scent. Smells good consistantly, shame the longevity is awful and there is no projection at all . It is a good one for a collectors point of view; but if you are looking for a projection beast , look elsewhere, as you would get something good for the price you are paying for this. Apart from that, nice mild tobacco aroma

Tell me how we should appeared with our partners in the time to cuddle. should we appeared animalic-macho like Rambo out of Jungle? or freshly aquatic like some boys who just went from Basketball field? we want to smell seductive, smells distinctively alluring with a little mystery shroud us. we want to smells dark and gentle, with a warm feelings that the women will love cause they feels that the men's scent reflect a men that would be able to please, not a men that simply wished to satisfy himself.

in return, Dolce & Gabbana released their "cuddling time" scent that reflects its all. it smells intimate passion between those dark tobacco and amber, an intimate passion that women simply doesnt want to let it go. the feelings The One induced is intimate night, something that just between you and her.

the longevity comes moderate with close to the skin sillage, much like your intimate nights with her. full of romance and passions in close distance, nothing too loud and offending, solely to reach the most intimate pleasures between your passion and hers. The One definitely not created to those who want to be attention seeker or guys who likes rough and full of scream and yelling bedtime. its for those who appreciate every single seconds the moments their skin touch the skin of hers, feels the soft alluring scent along with the warm breath of hers in the neck and the increasing body heat that comes with the carnal passion that night

It's hard for me to understand all of the negative reviews for this cologne. I will admit the projection is poor but the overall smell if fantastic, you can really tell the ingredients were blended well together and it smells both classy and expensive. The ladies seem to love it as well so I have made it my go to scent on date nights. Not something I woulld recommend to go out to a club as it sits very close to the body, but definately something you and your lady will really enjoy on a night out.

Please, guys, I encourage you to try this! That I often wear the girlie version of it, only makes the name easier to remember. I think that the combination of spices do something to a girl's neurons and will make you more attractive--bumping you up a point automatically.
It draws me in. A coworker wears it and it's nice to be around a cologne that makes me want to get closer instead of trying to stay out of his aftershave sillage.

MUST READ:

Without a doubt, this fragrance is a classic. I must say though, anyone who complains about the LONGEVITY and PROJECTION of this fragrance, DEFINITELY has a more recent bottle...

I originally purchased two bottles from Macy's when it was released back in '08 - 1 bottle which I still own (about 2/3 full). The top notes from the original batch are VERY BOLD - extremely spicy, sparkling grapefruit, and a stronger ginger, but yet still very warm. So bold, your nostrils may have a slight stinging sensation once sprayed. The strength of the top notes are in your face for at least 1-2 hours before it transitions to the softer, smoother, and calmer notes. Having said that, the spice remains throughout. I get anywhere from 10-14 hours with it. No lie!!!

FAST FORWARD>>

After hearing numerous comparisons to 1 Million, I was so perplexed and adamant about how very different they are, that I decided to purchase another bottle of this stuff yesterday from Sephora. What the heck... this would give me a much needed backup bottle, plus I can test it side by side with the older juice. I sprayed the '08 version on my left wrist and the '12 juice on my other... WOW!!! What a difference indeed!!! Now I understand the comparisons...

The newer bottles have been drastically toned down. The opening is very flat and far less spicy. Comparing it to the '08 bottle, the scent completely skips the intense vivacious opening. Yes, the notes are there, but where's the personality??? The '12 juice starts out how my '08 juice is toward the end of the drydown. No wonder people are getting the 1 Million vibe and longevity of just 2-4 hours like I've been hearing. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good scent, but clearly not the same juice! I have the evidence to prove it. In fact, 4 hours in... the '08 juice is motoring and full of personality & projection. The '12 juice is barely there and just a dull & sweet skin scent - BLAH.

So, for those out there who may have said they "USED TO" like the fragrance and remember it very differently, you're NOT going crazy. It is indeed very different and boring when compared. If you don't remember what it smelled like when it first was introduced to the market, well then, you have nothing to worry about. Enjoy this as you have been. Unfortunately, I am not pleased with this finding. Will I treasure my older bottle more?... ABSOLUTELY. Will I wear the '12 bottle when I run out?... We'll have to see about that one.

I hope this helps someone. Thanks for reading and keep sniffing fragrance community!

To me this smells of nutmeg, probably the mixture of coriander and cardamom. The scent of nutmeg reminds me of mashed potatoes, which, in the part of the world where I live, are often seasoned with it. In some fragrances I might actually like it, but in general, as it is the case here, I find it more appropriate for the potatoes than for my skin.

Es una fragancia excelente, al principio tenía mis dudas para adquirirla, pero tiene un gran aroma un poco dulce, se percibe muy bien el aroma suave a tabaco. A mi me duró mucho tiempo el aroma, hasta el siguiente día donde pude percibir un poco el gengibre y en lo personal noté un aroma especiado a pimienta, similar al que deja 7 de loewe. Desde ahora es una de mis fragancias favoritas! Huele excelente!!

I suggested my boyfriend try this as I have The One for Women. It's nothing like that (thankfully!) but I think it's the best fragrance for men I've ever smelt. I'd describe it as fresh spicy with amber, cedar and citrus notes. I couldn't smell the tobacco otherwise I wouldn't recommend it! High quality, sophisticated and lasts a long time.

I would classify this as a kind of spicy & woody fragrance. It opens up with a very strong & heavy coriander & grapefruit, which I actually don't like it very much. After a while, I could easily identify the ginger & cardamom, this unfortunately reminds me a smell of a 60+ years old Chinese woman, who used to put on some Chinese traditional medical oil on the body when she gets sick, oops....Probably, it is related to the mixed effect of ginger & cardamom. To me, I cannot get used to it...it's weird to me!

If you like ginger & cardamom, you surely could wear it without the problems I have. Um...I would suggest to wear this one at night time during cold days. Projection nearly nothing & Longevity is quite weak as well around 2-3 hours in general, which you should expect to respray it. IMO, this one is more suitable for mature men, aged 35+, coz I don't think this smell is youth & fresh below 35.

Oh, I like this perfume.

This is the fragrance my boyfriend wear and I really wish he would use it on an everyday bases.
The citrus luckily is blended to perfection almost as if it was there just to give a fresh breath to the tobacco.
Lovely Tobacco share is notes with cedar and gives a gently burned handsome feeling, stable and masculine. Spicy ginger compliment the smoky atmosphere bringing unexpected sweetness. But as the tobacco essence settle, orange blossom, the most gentle of the white flowers, appears like a feminine alter ego, light and faded, but persistent.
This is one of those perfumes for which I would suggest not exaggerate with the amounts sprayed.
I would personally wear this perfume, not necessarily because I feel it could be unisex, but because it would be a perfect highlight for certain women.

This is a nice presentation of tobacco-woody notes. It reminds of Vera Wang for men; but this one is thicker, sweeter and stronger.

Its pleasant but overly sweet for my taste. When it was launched I already had Vera Wang for men which is subtler and somewhat more citrusy than this; so I didn't consider adding it o my wardrobe.

Longevity and projection are good and overall it gets 6 out of 10 IMO.

I fell in love with The One for men and bought it for my hubby. He is meh about it. I'm going to start wearing it as I discussed on another board last night. ha.

I was 100% sure I would love this. Tobacco cedar and amber base notes? That could be my dream team, and with so many positive reviews I thought for sure this would be quality.

Unfortunately, and as one or two others have noticed, on me it smell like maple syrup and I have no idea where that would come from. While I don't object to the smell of maple syrup, it isn't exactly what I would have in mind for a classy night out fragrance.

Great scent. I fell in love with this scent as soon as I smelled it.
I love sensual scents, and this beats most, if not, all of them.
The tobacco scent isn't strong here, even though I'm a light smoker.
I would wear this for all seasons. It'll be best to wear it on a date or special night out.
If the longevity and projection was longer, I would give it 5 stars.
Summertime helps this stand out more. It's more of a Fall/Spring scent. If an intense or Eau de Parfum version comes out, then it would be a winter scent

For those who say it's not a very long lasting cologne:

This cologne lasts long, it just doesn't PROJECT very well. D&G designed this one intended for the man in a relationship, in other words, you're only supposed to smell it if you're up close to the person wearing it. Hence, the name, "The One"

On my skin starts with a blast of grapefruit with some cedar. after that i start getting the ginger and the amber, and it dries down to a amber, tobacco based sweet scent. on the right opening i get a cleaner kind of vibe. I used to only like the drydown but now i dig the whole scent life. I know everyone complains about projection but i get 8 hours and up. I live in a tropical country so the climate is probably the reason. it's dark and sweet but I like it even in the heat. a must try, even more if you life in Central America, The Caribean

From a woman's point of view: When I smell this on a guy I instantly melt! There's something ultra masculine, confident, and rich about the fragrance. It gives off the illusion that the man is more successful, therefore more attractive than he really is.

I always tell my guy friends, if they wore cologne and invested in a good one, they wouldn't have to use pick up lines. Women would naturally want to get closer to you, and they'll be sure to break the ice themselves when they smell this fragrance on you and ask what you're wearing. It's a sure head turner and an attention keeper.

You could also call it sex in a bottle. It does in fact have that effect on women.

A simple smell that will put a smile on your face. The bottle's design is simple, elegant, and pleasing to the eye. Orange ginger candy sweetness with synthetic amber and some some sharp cedar to keep it from getting to effeminate. However, like stated before, the longevity stinks.

A great fragrance with very sensual and beautiful smell which unfortunately doesn't last and project very well! :(
If you love tobacco based fragrances and you're going to buy this because of the tobacco note, hold on a second! this is not a tobacco based fragrance!!
Yeah, the tobacco is in this fragrance but it's not as strong as you may think and also it's surrounded with strong sweet and spicy notes that don't allow to the tobacco note to shine!
The opening is strong, sweet and spicy. you can smell tobacco note which surrounded with strong and sweet amber, spicy ginger and only hint of grapefruit notes. very warm and beautiful scent.
In the dry down the sweetness become stronger and blind other notes and push them in the background.
It's a linear fragrance, so the smell will not change that much.
It's a safe and very pleasant fragrance but as I said before the longevity and projection of this fragrance isn't that great and that's the worst part of this fragrance. or maybe I can say the only bad thing about it!
It's sweet but it doesn't have enough power to name it as a winter fragrance. I think it's great for spring and fall and also summer nights.
يه عطر بسيار جذاب و خوشبو كه متاسفانه پخش بو و ماندگاري زياد خوبي نداره
در ابتدا رايحه تنباكو قابل حس كردنه، اما بوي شيرين عنبر و رايحه نسبتا تند و تلخ زنجبيل و كمي هم گريپ فروت بوي تنباكو رو تا حد خيلي زيادي كور ميكنن
پس يادتون باشه اگه به نيت اينكه اين يه عطر با بوي تنباكو هست سمتش ميرين سخت در اشتباهين
در ادامه بوي شيرين عنبر قويتر ميشه و بقيه رايحه ها در حاشيه هستن. اين عطر بوي خطي داره و زياد تغيير نميكنه
بوي اين عطر بسيار عالي و خوشبو هست اما متاسفانه همونطور كه گفتم پخش بوي ضعيف و ماندگاري متوسطي داره كه بزرگترين و شايد بهتر باشه بگم تنها نقطه ضعف اين عطر هست
بوش شيرين هست اما اينقدر قوي نيست كه بشه تو زمستون ازش استفاده كرد. به نظر من بيشتر به درد بهار و پاييز و شبهاي تابستون ميخوره

When I first smelled this fragrance, I found it very warm and smooth. More than any other I smelled before. And it made me think of a hotel bar and me sitting in an heavy leather couch next to an open fire, a glass cognac and a cigarette. I think it is perfect for cool evenings, it warms your soul and smells so good.
I really enjoy this fragrance, but I keep it for special occasions, I would not wear it every day. Really great!

This is my favorite fragrance that I own. It has an overall very smooth flavor. Reminds me of a smooth bourbon. Many people indicate the scent fades quickly during the day. I enjoy the way it changes. It starts off with a lot of tobacco and is thick and a bit sweet. That scent fades over the day and lightens up very nicely.

Brandonnn..
Glad you like it..

The more you wear this lovely fragrance..the more you fall deep in love with it!

That's the way it goes for me!
I can't have enough of it!

And yes, it has that stylish seductive European touch!

The tobacco/ginger/amber mix is really wonderful!
It's so catchy & distinguished..it has that "luxurious" aroma that entice you to taste it!!!
(Just try a touch around your lips..everytime you inhale you get the "taste of seduction & luxury"!)

Projection is really a personal matter..!
Everyone intereacts in a unique way with each fragrance..so no really common rule for projection.
For me..it excellently projects & stay on for sooo long!

As for the quality of the materials..I believe all materials used are really top quality.
As long as you can identify the "persona" of each ingredient..& even more..can smell the combined "persona" of the scent..it's a true indicator of how high quality the materials are.
(Can distinguish each & on the very same time..can get the scent unique persona!)

Even the bottle, the bottle cap & the packaging color are all in the same direction with the scent!
The bottle interacts nicely with the juice it contains..conveying that luxurious message even without smelling it!

The bottle cap with its color really reflects the scent..subtle tobacco-amberish!

The packaging color & font color..are all in the same way..luxurious & sophisticated stuff inside! ;)

Well..overall..it's a top notch stuff we have here.

I guess this is the best (male) fragrance D&G has ever produced!
Their masterpiece!
And they have the opportunity to build upon it..NOT by producing endless series of "The One..", but rather with more lovely, sophisticated, elegant & unique fragrances like this ONE.

Cause there will be only one THE ONE!

----
Won't add more about comments & compliments I get everytime I wear this beauty.
But you can imagine!

Satisfaction & confidence are enough!
;)

I grew up in Europe and the girls LOVE this kind of scent there so if you live in north america and want to be unique and think you can pull it off, you will be thanking me for taking this advice;)

A wonderful fragrance. This was an unexpected find after a long and circuitous search of fragrances in Nordstrom's for something "interesting." The One is definitely interesting with its evolution from fruit and spice to flowers and finally to the killed basenotes of tobacco, amber, and the wonderful cardamom sweetness.

Sadly, the spell does not last as long as one might wish nor does it project as much as one might wish, but as a personal scent, it is out of this world. The sheer pleasure of smelling this on myself forgives a myriad of sins.

In my opinion, it's the best sweet tobacco drydown on the market. Other fragrances have wonderful qualities to be sure, but in the drydown, D&G truly is the One.

The One for Men is a fragrance caressingly talc, where the spices take on a sweet note (so to speak to Allure Sport), I always thought the spices known as complementary and at times annoying, but The One stands majestically on a lifeblood of them drawing from infinite the fund is unique and is a blend of tones as dry and soft woods, or fragrant flowers that wither in the sun of July, while the resins are a real breakthrough as rays of sunlight filtered by a shutter ajar, this fragrance in my humble opinion is the number one line for men (could be the complete evolution of another fragrance, or D and G by.
Luxurious, bright, dreamy and enjoyable.

Well, i picked it up from the airport while i was on transit. I acutally was looking for Givency Pi but changed my mind later. I did not give much importance to the notes and asking the sales person over the counter never proved much use to me. After wearing it i realized i stumbled over something awesome. It has the right smell that i love wearing. Though not mentioned i feel it has some amount of Vetiver (KHus) and Sandalwood in it. A right perfume for fall and winter season (may be because i picked it during this time)

It does not have good longevity though.. max 2 - 3 hours

Very tropical off top. A very nice grapefruit note takes over that lingers until the mid. Then you get this mix of grapefruit and orange blossom in the mid. A little bit intoxicating and very clean and inviting. The base gives you a nice really light tobacco feel mixed in with some cedar. Nice scent to wear as a signature. Longevity is a problem as well as projection, but when this is projecting people will love it. A crowd pleaser.

The One for Men isn't unpleasant by any means, but it bores me. I basically get a sweet, musky woody-amber accord with a big cedar note. It's pleasant and enjoyable, long lasting, and popular for a reason, but not for me. Not satisfying or interesting enough, and a bit too Avon-ish in smell.

Love this stuff. I get ok longevity; if it were better I would wear it a lot more. To me this and YSL L'homme are similar. L'homme is much softer. I think of The One as whiskey and L'homme as champagne. Both have a very appropriate time. Worth a try.

Warm, bitter-sweet, with prominent floral nuances of orange blossom. As the ginger and citrus subsides, the scent loses a lot of its edge, the tobacco is a bit too soft I find, and becomes overly powdery. The amber accord is highly vanillic and combined with the orange blossom turns very unisex.
The drydown actually reminds me a lot of Ellen Tracy Parfum(F).

This is a very good scent. It smells very good and lasts a long time. The only thing that it lacks in is projection, however that isn't bad.

I feel that the low projection goes with the personality of the fragrance. It is the type of scent that you would wear out for a meal at a top restaurant. It screams sophistication and class, which I like to see in a scent.

Overall I would recommend this to a lot of people, however if you are out 'on the pull' then I would go for something with a larger projection.

Results:

Scent: 8/10
Sillage: 6/10
Longevity: 7/10

A borderline LIKE-DISLIKE vote from me because I love its scent: it is modern, unique and masculine that has thick and rich middle notes. But the sillage and longevity are both terrible. It stays very close to skin after half an hour, and can't detect it after 2 to 2.5 hours of first application.

I've read reviews that The One performs better in warm places. Unfortunately, that's not the case in the East Coast, USA. It is a shame that I can only maximize its performance for 3 months.

In my opinion, this scent is made for special occasions or for "The One" in your life. Extremely safe fragrance and one that I could say it would be okay to blind buy. Projection not great but that is why I believe its great for a man that is already in a relationship. Lasting power is alright, it will certainly get you through a dinner and a movie.

This fragrance changed my life. Seriously. First time I smelled this fragrance it was on a card in some magazine. Flipped the page and was hit with this rich lush dark smell. My nose was wedged in the crack of that book for 15 minutes before I could turn the page. Prior to this I thought body spray and scented bath gels and assorted cheap smelly things you could find in drug stores. I rarely wore fragrances my friends bathed in the stuff and it often made my head hurt. The fragrance counters in the mall I shunned for fear of passing out from the smells! This though pulled me in and I'm hooked now for the last 3 years.

The citrus rush pulls you in at first but sadly leaves a little too soon but then the heart of the fragrance comes on smoothly and surely...that spice and tobacco filters into the nostrils and heaven after that.

Does not project at all doesn't last long so I feel ok wearing this any where. Times where I'm not trying to be shouty and scream look at me smell me compliment me! It's great guys for if you pull that special someone close that they can now smell it and you combined and it implants a very pleasant memory for them. When they smell it in the future they'll ONLY think of you not the 10 other guys they smelled that day wearing shouty fragrances.

for a fragrance that doesn't last very long it's a little sweet. Smell is great...kinda chocolate like at drydown. Another one of thoughs colognes that is perfect for a event you go to for just a few hours. Not offensive but has a ok projection. 8 out of 10 only because of the scent is good.

This is not a strong cologne. But it lasts. The night I got it, I sprayed it right before bed to see if it would be there in the morning, and it was. It lasted close to the skin for like 8 hours. This is an intimate scent, not something loud and cloying. It's something for confident people who don't need their cologne to shout out. I enjoy it. It's not one that projects real well but in situations where you are close, it's perfect. Darn good fragrance.

I just ran out of my 1.7oz this is a must have for me!!! The impression it left was sooooooooooo good I'm going to buy a 3.3oz.

I love the fact that is a soft scent, so classic and elegant. If I had to pick a fragrance I had to live with forever it would be this one.

The One for men is a personal, warm, soft, classic, lovable, unforgettable, and timeless scent.

The big bonus is that since it's so soft it can be worn in all seasons of the year, and it leaves a trail so people can smell it on you.

Due to my skin chemistry, I have never had a fragrance that lasts less than 8 hours and projects less than a foot. The One lasts a good 9 hours on my skin, with about a foot of projection, maybe a few inches more. I am not saying that this will last and project like this for everyone else. For most people, it will be weaker.

The scent, however, makes this my favorite scent for dates/anything romantic. It is extremely sensual, and my girlfriend jumps onto me every time I wear it. If this were a niche fragrance that costs 150 US dollars, I would still buy it.

This is a DATE scent. Not work. Not clubbing. DATE.

Smelt this today. smells a lot like coconut/orange to me, sprayed it on my wrist once got at least 2/3 hours smell out of it, Projection & silage is weak same as people said in the reviews, but didn't buy it. but that's why i guess it's called "The One" because it's just for you.

6-7/10
Try > Buy. but it's good for the collection if you have a lot of $$$

Strong. Gentle. Subtle. Classic. Warm.


It's spicy, it's comforting and secure, it's just bright enough, just sweet enough, just mysterious enough. Very sexy.

The tobacco is perfect. The cedar and amber are delicious. It doesn't need to project any more than it does- it draws in. I can't resist brushing my lips against his neck as I breathe it in.

And I relish the scent of it that lingers on my own skin in the mornings.

That is all.

I love love love the smell of The One - it's exotic, spicy, herbal, fruity. I just wish it lasted longer! Much longer! On me it projects only for about 1-2 hours, and the longevity is 3 hours at the most! It's such a shame. If D&G brought out an 'Intense' version that smelt exactly the same but lasted for 6-8 hours (or more!) I would buy it in a heartbeat. As it is, it's only really useful for snuggling up with a partner to watch a film, or for in-between the bed sheets, because you have to be really close to smell this!

I love this cologne. I just have a small trial bottle of the EDT, but I will definitely be buying the larger bottle. It seems fairly versatile, however, it seems like a night scent to me -- which is unfortunate since I was really hoping to find a good day scent. Trying out Platinum Egoiste by Chanel, but it has some odd-old-lady-powder-like smells. Anyway, I digress. Fresh Spicy is accurate for this, you can smell the subtle Tobacco/Citrus undertones very well too, beautifully crafted, very masculine and warm.

Side-note @Endymion -- I don't think your bottle is genuine =( If you go to any department store and ask, they'll give you a two mL free sample out of their tester bottle which you'll know is genuine, so you can test the one you have against that

I just got my bottle of The One for men.
It's used but genuine. I have never tested it so I didn't know how it would "sound".

First impression: It's hard to believe that it's a men's fragrance! It's so sweet and feminine!!!
(A little bit reminds me even to Laura Biagotti's Venezia, the female one.)

A very light, young, fruity scent which is beautiful but projects little and does not last...

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 - 3 hours. A sticky orange (though not listed) type of scent which is younger than I was expecting, considering the name and bottle suggests mid-mature. Ages 21-37. This is the brother of Jimmy Choo female fragrance, it smells 80% the same. Yummy, innocent, modern. Projection limited, approx 1.5 feet and not very strong

3-4 hours. Less projection, perhaps 6 inches. Same scent

4-5 hours. Same scent but sourness creeps in, but still very nice. 1 inch projection

5-7 hours. - Essentially same orange fruity scent. Less sourness now and more powdery, close to skin, no projection. Gorgeous drydown, I keep smelling my forearm.

Delicious scent, though the market is flooded with sticky orange type scents.. as it was with lemon scents. Poor projection and longevity which I need, so not for my personal tastes..

D&G The One is one great fragrance. I've had a sample in my drawer and almost forgot about it, it just didn't speak to me when I had applied it first several months ago. But a couple days ago something happened: I applied it and it sounded magic. Maybe it has happened so because it's fall (today is Nov. 1). So I bought a 30ml bottle and started enjoying the scent even more. After a while, I realized that it resembles Givenchy Play Intense but it's more subtle and complex than that. While GPI to me is a winter/night and, surprisingly, spring scent, D&G The One is a fall one. I haven't worn it over other seasons though, so we'll see how it works during the winter and spring.

On longevity: it doesn't go too quickly. It stays on my skin for 4 solid hours, which I consider to be not bad at all. And I like its drydown a lot. While the opening is a statement (a sort of gentle power), the drydown is intimate, down to the skin.

The composition is wonderful: this is a rare case when (my favorite) grapefruit is masked by the warm spices and a tad of sweetness with just a hint of tobacco. Nothing is overwhelming or standing out alone. All ingredients work well in ensemble.

D&G The One is one of the most noble, if I may say so, expressions of gentle masculinity in the world of fragrances. So happy I got it.

I was looking for a signature, and needed something versatile. The One is exactly what I was looking for. It is smooth, soft, and warm. When I think of a bonfire on a beach, I picture wearing this scent. I use it as my winter signature regardless of the "fruity" notes. I think the warmth of the fragrance makes it work for this purpose. Very inviting. A guy I know wears The One, so when I was looking for my new scent I really didn't want to like this one. After reading some reviews I thought Gucci PH2 would be more appealing to me, but after trying out all the prospects The One ended up far and away my favorite. On the other hand, after having such high hopes for the Gucci I was really not impressed. The One is the one.

I like the top and the drydown a lot, but am indifferent to the middle. Top is some pleasant grapefruit mixed with spice hints and some bergamot to me.

I get a orangey-coconut sort of vibe at that stage, which I strangely find Ok for a few minutes but then feel all nauseated. Just not for me, so no point in giving a rating.

Quick impression from one spray to hand (while wearing other fragrances): Kind of like a bad version of Michael for Men (Kors). It's lacking the complexity and the patchouli, which I think would have helped make this more "masculine." The tobacco is present, but overall this is a bit "synthetic" and bare, at least relative to Michael for Men. I would not wear this even if there was no Michael for Men, though. Instead, I'd go for something like Romance Silver for Men if I wanted a recent designer men's fragrance with a tobacco element. I don't see why a woman who wanted a tobacco fragrance would feel strange wearing this one, though she might not like it for other reasons.

UPDATE: Seems to have good longevity and projection ("sillage") seems fairly good too, but a metallic woody type of note and a vanillic laundry musk kind of thing totally ruins it for me.

A real gem of a cool/cold weather fragrance that works well both for the office and an evening out, though it really shines as an elegant scent to accompany an elegant evening.

Those looking for a fragrance that will punch people in the nose in a crowded club need to keep looking, but as has been written below, that is not the intent of The One. This One is meant to be enjoyed up close and in that regard, I have no problems with the longevity.

As to the scent itself, The One is all about the base for me. On my skin (pretty dry) it goes straight past a filmy hint of opening citrus (sweet not sour) to the base and hangs out there for around 8 hours. I get a densely rich, moist tobacco mixed with a honey sweetness (amber?) and a touch of dark, candied fruits weaving in and out of the picture. Beautiful.

If you're curious, The One is light years better than The One Gentleman.

I love D&G The One the instant I tested on my skin and bought it right away. One of the reason is perhaps the sweetness and some kind of a coconut vibe that I get (which I saw another reviewer "Heverton", maybe the only one whom mentioned the coconut aroma) which reminds me of Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau that I enjoyed much the unique sweet gourmand. The only downside of this fragrance like many had said is the longevity, it last less than 4hours on my skin. I'm going to try spraying the perfume and also applying the D&G The One deodorant stick..to see if it helps prolong the longevity..else I'll just re-apply as I have a small (8ml) bottle of it (given free) that I can conveniently carry with me!

I went to Macy's yesterday and tested this fragrance. It is a very sensual fragrance. If you're into very masculine smells then you should skip this one. It is very light and sweet.My 1st impression is that this could have been a unisex fragrance. I already ordered a sample so I'll wear it a couple of time and then render my final verdict.

Blind bought this one after reading a few positive reviews - only after purchasing did I delve deeper to find issues with projection and longevity...so was a little worried before my first try!!

First thought is that this is a nice fragrance - not fantastic or amazing, but just nice. If you're after something to stand out in the crowd, this probably wouldn't be 'the one' for you. There is something familiar about this - if you have a cabinet full of scents you probably have something which can do the same thing, but better.

Now to the issues everyone has spoken in depth about...Projection and Longevity. The One definitely sits close to the skin, there is no doubt to that, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. Other reviewers have mentioned that women love this scent - however it won't get you noticed, rather is perfect for the man who has already found 'the one'. Longevity is the one thing whih is of concern for me. It is rather spotty - lasting anywhere from an hour to 4 hours. If you are interested in this, I would recommend grabbing a sample and trying it thoroughly - as I know some people can get great longevity on this one.

For me this will be a fall or an early spring scent. Great for nights and could easily be someone's signiture scent if you find this lasts. Could easily be worn in winter as well, but I have others which do the 'winter scent' job for me better.

One of the most richest and sexiest scent I have ever worn. A delightful aroma of scents blended together as "The One". I wear this one at night time upon my intimate encounters. Although, the projection of this scent is not the very best. They need to come out with a version with better projection.

The difference is huge eMCizzle, The One is just more complex and smells less sweet, and imo is totally different from The Gentleman.

When i was in the perfume shop i sampled a few perfumes and those 2 where amoung them, i decided to buy The One, but i mixed them up and ended up buying The One Gentleman, i was dissapointed when i got home, i liked The One so much better, i appreciate the Gentleman and i love the scent, but The One is just much better, and that's all in my opinion ofcourse as people have different tastes.

My co-worker let me borrow this to try (I let him borrow my DKNY Red Delicious for Men--fair trade?). Anyway, so I'm experiencing this fragrance for the first time...wearing it at work. It smells super sexy, and not too strong to wear at work so it's just right.

However, I feel as though I've smelled something like this before... YSL L'Homme perhaps?

I prefer L'Homme to this one.

Can someone tell me if there's a difference between this one and The One Gentlemen?

This fragrance whispers class, elegance! It has an opening with grapefruit and ginger, but with a tropical vibe into it, with a reminiscent aroma of coconut. An opening that is almost like a drink combining all these notes.

Imagine this drink being taken at the same time you enjoy a good pipe, with a mixture of a not so strong tobacco leafs, something very soft and pleasant. This is the heart of this fragrance, where there is also a very evident amber note giving a sweet aspect to it.

A delight! The only problem with this fragrance is the longevity. After 4 or 5 hours The One drops out of the skin.

This is one of the best and sexiest mens fragrances on the market. For me the mix of Ginger and tobbacco works like magic and it blends heavenly into something that smells borderline edible. This is further enhanced by the sweetness of the grapefruit and the earthiness of its smokey and sweet drydown. I agree with everyone in the sense that The One is not meant to be a loud fragrance, i like it for its quietness and the fact that it isn't blasting in your face like alot of men's fragrances. For me this fragrance fades after 2 hours but it leaves a lingering scent on the skin which i really like because it truely does smell beautiful once its completly settled. I prefer this one much more in comparison to the new version they've released. I think this version is much more classier and alot more sexier and that suits my tastes but i'd definetly recommend trying both scents just to see how you feel about them cos they're both pretty awesome.

Im a woman in my early 20's. I think The One was created for those special occasions that you know there will be some closeness, you dont want something that screams for ATTENTION! but something that is discreet and once that other person is close it whispers I am the One because down deep inside you have always known that you're The One.

I don't see why everyone is complaining about projection. The ad, the commercial, and the description tells you that it wasn't made to be strong and overbearing. The One for men to my understanding was made for intimate and sensual moments most of the notes are aphrodisiacs (sexual stimulant). I doubt that anyone would be aroused by anything loud and strong so the one is fine just the way it is. Lessons for the day (1. Every fragrance has a time, place, and purpose) (2. CLASSY IS NOT LOUD AND ATTENTION SEEKING, IT'S QUIET AND CATCHES OTHERS BY SURPRISE.) and (3. Everyone doesn't want to smell you ten feet away.) I will be purchasing a new bottle of this quiet and classy fragrance.

All the notes blend in perfect harmony, and i find myself sniffing my wrists all day. This smell is phenomenol, i feel confident at work, not to mention the comments i get from the ladies, this is my number one cologne, followed by Chanel allure, followed by D&G pour homme

10/10 for sure.

I really, really wanted to love this fragrance as it has gotten so many great reviews, but it was just a little too generic for my tastes and definitely not worth the price. It may be better suited for individuals with oilier skin, but as I have a very dry (hardly sweat) skintone, it did not wear very well on me. I liked the opening notes of a little sweet and spice with a masculine taste, but I wasn't left with very much after two hours. I know a lot of people have this as their signature fragrance, and while I do like it I would probably go for something else. 7/10!

Dolce & gabbanna the one

ok i got this about a month or 2 ago and i was extremely excited to get my first dolce and gabbana cologne, i wanted it for over a year and finnaly got a gift set of it that was only 50 dollars!

to put this whole fragrance in one word is very difficult, basically impossible actually, its my 2nd favourite fragrance so far actually maybe 3rd, but i love this soooo much. its very woody and spicy and is very different but soooo manly, this is a lady killer in my perspective! the woods and the spices mix together perfectly and it last long to, well most do on me but this isnt to bad longevity wise maybe 7 to 9 hours on my skin maybe 10 or 11 if im lucky,

the notes in this are hard to describe because im not very good at describing the notes but ill try my best.. its like your walking through a forset of cedar trees and on your on your way and the smell of the cedar trees is very destinct but in the other side of the forest theres a tobacco farm and the smell of the tobacco is mixing together with the cedar trees and theres a few grapefruit groing that are mixing together amazingly, and its like yourre in heaven because it smells so manly and heavenly that you want too stay there. and its so strong that its hard to breathe but its okay because it smells amazing,

Ratings-

Longevity- 8.4/10 its above average on this cologne im happy

Projection- 9.6 smell this stuff from a mile away!

Overall smell- 9.9/10 my 3rd favourite !

Hope this helped!

My 16 year old (male) cousin wears this, and although it's probably not meant for this age range, he really pulls it off! (I didn't know what it was at first, just smelled it on him)

Think it works because it's very soft and luckily he used it sparingly unlike alot of teenagers with strong scents :P

Just got a lovely waft of warm and spicy and 'clean'.

One for special occasions I think. (my cousin's special occasion was new years eve party 2010 with lots of girls lol)

I'm a woman and I just tried a sample of this in the flyer.

It gives me all my stereotype about men's cologns, yet it is smooth enough for a female nose. It makes a very clear statement that it is for man. However, it has nothing overwhelming. From the other angle, I don't know how it manages to be so gentle (soft?), but then still be very clear on the gender.

Oh come on folks, D&G The one is amazing because of its innovation (in a good way).... It's intended for 30s men (I disagree to those who say it might be used by women, no way!!!) ....try it during days and nights......

This is a great scent, woody, loved the amber plus cedar....strong, perseverant, modern and warm, not intoxicating at all, it tightens perfectly onto your skin, even after long hours.....If you want to impress a girl, put it on 1 hour before going out to dinner.....it wouldn't go wrong, believe me, it's a couple maker!!!!

Sillage and longevity are OK, Great projection, nice bottle specially the cap (made on wood).

After a couple hours, the perfume fades away but leaves an incredible tobacco smell that is very calming and confortating.

I recommend everybody should at least try it!!!

Target public: men during 30's
Sillage: 7
Projection: 9
Scent itself: 8
The X-factor (the result is greater than the sum of its components individually): 7
Overal Score: 8

Just got a 100ml bottle of this today as a birthday gift from my lovely wife. I really like this, but its not earth shatteringly unique. Longevity and sillage are not that great. It smells like a cross between Versace Blue Jeans and cK Eternity to my nose. So I think its quite safe and masculine. Worth a try definitely (age 30-40yrs). No compliments as yet. To me it smells the best about 6hrs after the first spritz. (Guess the main issue is my other current frags are Guerlain's L'Instant and Banana Republic's Black Walnut which I think are quite unique and exceptional frags).

When I put this on, it reminds me of walking into a sauna loaded with un-lit cuban cigars. It's a very sweet/spicy smell. It is definitely a masculine and mature smell and will grab the ladies attention, only if they are standing closely to you. It doesn't project very well and I can see why it could give some people headaches although it doesnt do that to me. It's one of my favorites and I will definitely upgrade to a 3.3 oz bottle when my 1.6 runs out. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Sweet and smoky. It's interesting and masculine, but over powering in the Summer weather. Wear this for cooler times. This is my romantic scent, it is very personal and close to the skin and I like that for a close quarters cologne. The bottle is very nicely done and, even though it's fairly pricey, if you can get a 1.6 oz for under 50 dollars I'd so go for it. It's a great smell and women really like it. One of the only complaints is that it doesn't project if you want people to smell it, but it does last long... just quietly.

where to start about D & G the one for men. The One for men has different personalities from clean, classy, innocent, fun, vibrant to sexy, dark, captivating, mysterious, warm, and tempting. The One does not smell the same to everyone, its like a chameleon, a fragrance that caters to every different nose. When I first smelled it in the GQ mag, I got a smoky warmth wrapped in a haze of tempting whisphers of soft marshmallows. It suprised me when the opening was a strong troical burst of oranges. As the one dries down the orange smell becomes a creamy floral with a warm berry undertone. As the base whispers itself in I get warm marshmellows with a soft berry like orange with smoky amber undertones. T


the downside to this is its projection,it will project the first time you apply it, but 3 - 4 hours later it hides itself. The scent does last long but it is close to the skin.


To me the one for men can be unisex, do to the tropical, marshmallow vibe.


The One for men is similar to Sensuous by Estee Lauder as it dries down. The Marshmellow in this is also similar to the one in M by Mariah Carey.


The one Can be a perfect male counterpart to M by Mariah Carey which I feel they are both classic scents but travel different roads. M starts With the marshmellow accord and ends with a floral woody like base, while The One starts of tropical and floral and ends with a Marshmallow wrapped with the warmth of molten amber and creamy orange blossom.


Overall The One will go with my collection of classic scents. I wish they will come out with a Parfum version of this it will sale.

So I usually try to incorporate notes when I review things. But this one is more about what it smells like. Let me first say if you are getting excited about the Tobacco, don't! I smell more tobacco in Pure Havane than in this fragrance. If it is there I don't get much of it, maybe the sweet smokiness but that could be something else.

What does this smell like? A creamy tropical alcoholic beverage. Maybe an orange creampop or a creamy citrusy soda. Or something like that. It is sweet, citrus coupled with the ginger and thats what I get. It does have some depth maybe the tobacco or the amber or something is giving it some richness but it is there none the less.

Now let me say I have not worn this all day in the office. I may actually pull that off tomorrow. I wore it out because I have heard about the longevity issues. I decided to wear it dancing and I couldn't stop smelling myself. I loved the aroma that permeated my nose for the 4 hours I had this on. My friends forget that Matthew is on the front of this thing and that so many counter reps are begging for you to buy this (most people who do won't go through the entire bottle), it is not overrated. For any type of intimate setting this could be a go to fragrance. It could be applied for a baby making session (LOL), a nice dinner out with a woman, it could be professional enough for work though edgy, it could be a first date scent, especially for a mature man or it could be worn to a club.

Wonderful, wonderful fragrance. Just wonderful. I can't account for the longevity because I don't think this would be a signature scent for me (that is left for L'Instant, Prada Amber, Chanel Allure among others) so its use is perfect!

Warm, sensual and sophisticated. Not a clubber's, party animal type scent, but exactly as the ad campaign with McConaughey appears. Unfortunately, the lasting power of this scent is fleeting. I loved the various notes, but they were so under-emphasized in the projection stakes that as soon as it was there it was gone.

Dolce&Gabbana the one : DO NOT let the brown jucie fool you ! i thought this was gonna be a masculine spicy/woody bomb! i was wrong ! this opens up citrusy smelling not sweet though ! then after 40 min. the citrus accord tones down and the ginger comes in with tabacco and the grapefruit lingers in the background creating this SEXY,SMOOTH,ELEGANT,TROPICAL vibe. Smelling this with your eyes closed and it will travel you to an exotic beach!

This is a very special scent made for very special occasions. It would work very well in the early evenings on dates at coffee shops or nice restaurants (do not forget to dress the part as this is a high class scent and would not have the full effect otherwise). It may be too sophisticated/sexy for the workplace. Although it is too bad because the scent is to die for and I would wear it all day :)

You will get noticed with this fragrance. Mostly in a positive light. The only criticism I have heard is that one woman said it is too sweet. Projects well.

I get about 6-8 hours on my skin. My advice is to put some on your skin. It may instantaneously strike you as your signature (as it did mine). I can't think of any other fragrance this reminds me of. Overall, a fantastic cologne which you must try!

After the little sweet grapefruit-basil openning,amber and ginger took the controle.
It's sweet,powdery,basil appealing scent.
I dont get the tobacco note in a clear way.
Even if it seems relaxing and calm scent but it may give headache sometimes,specialy in testing.
Best for casual winter and fall wearing.
Get lot of compliments just like all the candy,vanilla,orangy type of scent(one million,le male..).
Last about 5 hours with moderate projection,be generous with the spray ;).

I just got a bottle today, and I love the scent, but I noticed that my bottle looks a little cheaply made and was wondering if I possibly got a fake. I'm used to having the name of the cologne printed directly onto the bottle but this one has a see-thru plastic sticker with the words "Dolce & Gabbana the ONE", I also noticed a couple of air bubbles in the bottle.
So I compared it with a sample that I had in my drawer, and the sample seems to have a bit more of a woodsy smell to it while to bottle I purchased today smells a little sweeter. So if someone could tell me if the original bottle has a clear plastic sticker on it I would really appreciate it.
Other than that, I love the scent, very masculine yet sweet and gentle, definitely a winter fragrance and something I'll wear for a night out.

EDT is a refined, sexy and slightly modern touch. Super powerful opening notes of the most powerful I've seen so far, a mixture of wood aroma with a hint of cardamom intense, but cool. Middle notes of cardamom dominate mixed with cedar wood, being soft and elegant orange blossom. Base notes a well-balanced blend of cedar and amber really fine.

Age range from recent graduates, until very mature men, warning that it is a fairly classic fragrance disguised as modern and daring. Almost for the whole season except the summer heat. Use from casual meetings to gala dinners, very flexible to use, gives an aura of fragrance line between formal and informal (a similar case as Polo Blue by RL). Stay on the skin for 8hrs. Pretty good for attracting women and dating. Very good fragrance, highly recommended.

I sprayed this on a card and liked it a lot, so I thought I'd check with muy hustband and see what he thinks. He smelled the card and didn't like it. But he also sprayed some on his wrist and thought it smelled somewhat better on him. When I sniffed his wrist though, I was horrified! It smelled really bad and it went from bad to worse over the next couple of hours. So glad I didn't buy this for him.

Am I the only one who thinks it's very similar to Coty's Raw Vanilla ? Very nice scent.

revisting my review...

After wearing it a few times I can say that it IS ver similar to Raw Vanilla, but not as simple. The spicies in The One are of course much richer and present, making it evolve much more than Raw Vanilla.

The cardamom, ambergris and cedar give a dark, smoky, creamy but also resin formula.
Masculine, collected and professional.
This isn't spicy in my opinion, Gentelman is the more spicy formula I prefer to resiny scents.
Longevity on the skin is pretty good, projects itself very well.

D&G The One is fantastically exclusive. The opening of grapefruit is so distinct albeit similar to a number of fragrances out there in the market.

Sweet vibe of The One is so great :D

Longevity is very good with 5-6+ on my oily skin. Please bear this in mind when you try this.

Sillage is good too.

Overall, very versatile and long-lasting men fragrance.

Hope this helps :D

A very classy fragrance, I cant think of me wearing it on a daily basis, The One is one of those perfumes that are better for special nights and formal events.
Very sexy but not reccomended for teens or very young guys.
However, maybe its my skin, it doesnt last too long.
I gave it to my dad and he has the same problem, maybe same skin???.
Its really a shame such a wonderful perfume with a weak longevity.

I love D&C as one of the great men's fashion labels of these days, but I can't get over their perfumes. Really, I tried but I could never wear any of their male scents.

Apart from this one, actually. It's sweet, aromatic, nicely devloping. I wouldn't call it subtle, but at least it's not dumb. Best worn on office days when nothing much is expected to happen.

To me it is a nice smell that is non offensive. It reminds of of a tropical fruit kind of smell. Think pina colada with crushed berries in it while getting a whiff of sun tanning lotion. I do get a little bit of a coconut vibe as well. Downside of this cologne, it is very weak and doesn't last long.

This a lovely men fragrance, maybe women I don't know for sure it has something that gives him women feeling maybe the designer has mistaken with the notes. No matter it is very romantic and enjoyable scent, but I hate the fact that doesn't stay much long and the silage is not that great. The season would be autumn, winter or spring for a night romantic dinner or special event, this is fragrance for a real gentleman.

I decided I wanted a men's fragrance to layer with my perfume... so after testing some I went home with a sample of this one. None of the others were quite right and they would clash with women's perfumes, or at least the ones I like to wear. This is very inviting and wraps around you instead of being too dramatic. It does draw you in however. Now I don't like men's cologne that is too clean and harsh smelling, but I love a scent like this one. It's comforting, sensual, and warm. I like the throwback classics like Bay Rum, and Old Spice from time to time. This reminds me of a modern man that's comfortable and confident in his own skin, but he doesn't have to be flashy about his looks. I will probably buy a small bottle.

Hi, I received my bottle today and what can I say about The One is nothing less than amazing.
This EDT opens sweet, like it would have a coconut note, then it changes to something more spicy, warm and sensual.
Definetely, The One is a scent for cold days or romantic nights. I don't think it is exclusively "mature" but a elegant and classic scent for young mens.
Weak sillage, but lasts more than 8h on my skin.
My final score: 9,0/10.

Oh, what a lovely, warm and relaxing fragrance this is!
To me it's like a fragrantic equivalent to a delicious glass of cognac or whiskey to relax after a day of hard work or as the kick off for a romantic night out.

It's sweet and warm (though the grapefruit and ginger also give it a fresh edge), distinguished and unmistakebly manly, yet very subtle.

A modern classic!

It's such an interesting sophisticated sweet scent. I sprayed this perfume before going to my office and suddenly the secretary asking me what I was wearing.

She said it was beautiful and elegant scent. Yes indeed, it really defines a masculine and smart professional young man. In the other hand, I feel warm and sexy as well. At the end, she wants to buy that perfume for her husband. :(

I couldn't agree more with her that anyone can't go wrong with this perfume. Go for it!! and for sure, the lady will be attracted to you.

A modern throw-back to older classics. This one absolutely cannot be underrated, and I'd recommend it to just about anyone for just about any occaision, with gusto.

The One for Men opens with a fairly common tingly green citrus, herbaceous and fresh. The opening is fine, but unremarkable - but the drydown, oh the drydown is something to die for! Flavorful spices, classy tobacco, weaved into the softest tapestry of amber. It is incredibly warm and plush - I want to permanently bury my nose in my skin.

Whenever I wear The One for Men, I feel like the mood of the drydown melds beautifully into the aura I project. It is expensive, luxurious, warm, and golden. Subtle, tasteful, and intriguing. It's so unusual to find a fragrance that enhances my personality so naturally. I'd wear it anytime and anywhere!

absolutely most definately one of my favorite mens fragrances. I love the warm notes, the ginger and cardamom (also being one of my favorite spices) are ingredable.

The One is a very masculine fragrance, its great for evening wear, and special occasions, I also think its good to use all year round, thats what make such a great fragrance. Its defiantly for a more mature crowd, but I can see some younger guys pulling this off.

Its sweet, spicy and smokey, but also soft and mellow. When I first spray it on, it starts out real spicy and cool, but then as it dries down, it starts to become more warm, and mellows out to become softer, creamy, with a hint of tobacco and less rough around the edges. (I get a sort of toasted marshmallow vibe from it)

I prefer to wear this at night, in fall/winter, but as I mentioned before can easily be worn in the summer months.

The One, has pretty good longevity, that keeps going til next morning. The One may not be one of a kind, but It definitely has what it takes to earn a spot in my collection!

This is a very warm and comforting fragrance that to my nose almost has a smokey/caramel quality.

I don't really get any of the top notes coming through when I first apply; for me it seems to go straight to the ginger & spice, before quickly settling into the warm amber & tobacco combination with just a hint of something suger/sweet.

If it does have one fault, it's that on me it stays very close to the skin and doesn't seem to project well. I really like it, but wish it projected further(especially considering the price tag!). I would recommend this for a special evening where you are very close to the one you're with.

I tried this fragrance out of sheer curiousity as to what Matthew McConaughey smells like. I thought that whatever The One for Men smelt like it would have to suit a sexy, suave, rich and egotistical man.

Well this fragrance sure does suit men like him!

The scent is kind of sweet but spicy at the same time. The grapefruit and herbaceous notes like basil and coriander tend to stand out a lot. While sweet, I fully recommend this fragrance for men, as it is extremely masculine, and dare I say, sexy.

I detect a slight vanillary note that tends to mingle amongst the spicy and woodsy accords throughout this fragrance. It gives the composition a warm and somewhat syrupy feel which is both unique and sensual.

The tobacco and cedar in the base notes, rounds The One for Men off nicely with a touch of smokiness which to me is the epitome of the perfect manly man.

The lasting power is not bad, however I do wish that the sillage was that little stronger. I'd recommend this fragrance for wear during the colder months, special occasions or when you want to suitably impress your lady.

There are occassions when it is smart to obey the perfume title. The One is the one. I consider this to be a new classic, and recommend it without a doubt. Reminded me on Leonard Cohen lyrics which goes...

If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I`ll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver
Climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I am your man.

Like the name already implies, D&G "The One" is a very special fragrance.

Having fruity and spicy scents in the top and middle notes and oriental-woody scents in the base, this is a fragrance for the rather extroverted type of man who doesn't fear to express his masculinity in public. Hence, the choice of using Matthew McConaughey for the advertising campaign was just great...

The fragrance itself reminds one of a wild garden in the South during a hot summer night and is literally spoken a true "Midsummer Night's Dream". But this fragrance is not only suitable for the night, but also wearable in the daytime. Due to its longevity which lasts approximately one day I would say that it's a stronger fragrance which could be worn the whole year through since it doesn't apply to just one certain time of the year. Rather for special events like going to the opera or to a dinner in a high-class restaurant than for business events or leisure time.

I give this fragrance a 10 out of 10 rating and will certainly invest in it again once the bottle is empty - which will sadly be way too soon...

PS: In summer this fragrance seems to have a strange attraction to the humblebees and wasps so just in case you're allergic be sure to have the right medicine with you. ;-)

Sillage and longevity are about average!
But you may find better choices whit same price in this zone!

با وجود اینکه این عطر خیلی طرفدار داره و یک عطر خوب به حساب میاد، اما من چیزی بیشتر از اون انتظار داشتم
عطر گرم و خاصیه که تا دو سه ساعت دوام داره و به مرور بهتر میشه
پخش بوی خوبی هم داره
برای مهمونی مناسبه
اما در کل با این قیمت میشه انتخاب های بهتری هم داشت

In one word: delicious.
The immediate opening (to my nose) is a creamy orange with soft florals, and then a dry-down is a nice combo of cardamom and ginger (couldn't detect tobacco).
A little generic but what isn't these days? Still though, very edible and hard to dislike, people will want to know what you're wearing ;-)

I just received this as a Christmas present. I had been thinking about purchasing this for a long time, but other fragrances got in the way.

This is a rather soft fragrance. The longevity is moderate. These two factors are enough to drive people away. However, this serves my collection well. This isn't meant to be a sillage monster. This is meant to wear when you're with "the one". I've found that when I spray this on after bathing and moisturizing in The Body Shop's Brazil Nut line, it's heavenly!!! This isn't for the Lever2000 bathers out there - LOL.

"Woody Spicy". Somewhat a creamy scent, warm and confortable. The One is not already "that one" for whom just said that is still looking for a signature scent (me). But is pleasant enought. Vanilla is not listed, but there is something a little vanillic here, at least it looks like that, or coconut? Nice to see that there is tobacco, although I just get some traces, if is really traces of tobacco what I`m getting from it. I prefer the smoky Guerlain Homme instead of this, but for me The One is much nicer, enjoyable, than perfumes like the last I`ve tried, including DKNY Men 2009 and Ferragamo F pour Homme.

very nice scent. it belongs to "mainstream" fragrance. we have a lot simillar scents nowadays - chic by herrera, diamonds by armani, euphoria by ck. imho those scents are grandsons of opium hour homme by ysl - sweet, woody and spicy often with oriental notes. those kind of scents are very safe - you can wear them in office (not overdose), formal and informal meetings and dates.
i really like "the one" but if you are looking sth new, different and original - sorry - wrong one.

edition: i really like how it develope on my skin. it's not to sweet - just warm, sensual woody scent with a pinch of spices

I really, really liked The One.
It is spicy, woodsy and sweet enough for a woman to use. As a matter of fact, after 4 hours on my skin it transformed into a version of Sensuous by Estee Lauder with an aromatic twist. The tobacco leaves are the best, along with much beloved cardamom. It does not have the harshness that some of colognes possess, it is soft as a cat`s paw...or silk tie...or dark curly hair.I think it can be easily worn during the day, though the best time for it is evening, no doubt!
It lasted all day on my skin, and a week and still going - on a paper strip.
Amazing!

The odd thing is that this fragrance isn't very spicy to me, though I expected it to be. I suppose in comparison to other fragrances, it MIGHT be...but I actually get more of a sweet woodsy note. It's divine. It's not a strong cologne like Brute, for example, but the woodsy aroma maintains its masculine structure without being overbearing. I think the cardamom, amber, and orange blossom add such a wonderfully warm sweetness to it--almost making it slightly creamy. The combination of notes somehow prevent this fragrance from being too spicy/woodsy or even the other extreme: boring.

I can't pinpoint which part I like the best. That's how you know a fragrance is GREAT...because the notes are in such harmony with each other that you don't even want to think about the individual notes. You just want to sit and enjoy the beautiful music. And this, indeed, is beautiful.

Dolce & Gabbana THE ONE is a cocentrate of elegance and sensuality. A spicy, oriental fragrance developed on the harmony of tobacco with refined boise notes.
A delightful oriental spicy scent that has a wonderful combination of grapefruit, ginger and orange blossom. Blended perfectly with cedarwood, coriander and basil it's a no stopping me now fragrance.
For the modern hedonist who never passes by unobserved.

well this is surely a good cologne. i wanted something for evening wear. After surfing the net for couple of days i found out that Spicy and/or Musky Colognes are the best for night time. More search time helped me note that Bvlgari Black, Soir, Gucci pour HOmme 2, Versarce Dreamer, Vintage John Varvatos, Obsession night are among the best for evening wear.

after testing all these and a few more colognes recommended by SAs in perfume stores i was left with Gucci Pour Homme 2 and D&G The One for Men.

well the first impression was, Gucci is better. but after about 40 mins Gucci almost dies and D&G becomes a different cologne which supprised me. still it took me couple of more days to figure out which one to buy and then decided to go for the D&G The One.

My girlfriend reckons Gucci is more romantic and sweet which is true, whereas the D&G is more Masculine and better for special occasions.

However i would buy the Gucci and Bvlgari Soir because they'v got their own style and i liked them.

Great for evening wear. Will prove to be a classic scent. Similar to Davidoff Silver Shadow, with a little more spice.

Comes on soft, warm, with the subtle spicy notes coming out beautifully.
