    I so wanted to fall in love with The One for Men by D&G, but, alas, it was not to be. Fragrance-wise, itís wonderful, beautiful, I canít say enough good about it! Actually probably one of my favorite scents, which is the reason for the Thumbs Up. I donít have the refined nose of many here so Iím not great at always deciphering all the notes, but at first spray I just got a sweet, spicy vibe (never specifically smelled grapefruit). It did evolve frequently over the course of the drydown, and the end result on me is a soft, beautiful sweet amber and tobacco that I could sniff all day.

    The problem for me is that itís too soft for my personal taste. If youíre the type man who only wants some special girl or guy to smell you when their head is on your chest or snuggled into your neck, then this would work out exceptionally well. I, however, like fragrances with a little more projection. I donít need to fill the room, but if youíre standing a few feet away in conversation I want you to at least pick up a good whiff, and that doesnít happen for me with The One. I tend toward drier skin so always use lots of moisturizer, and hoped that would help with the staying power of this but it didnít seem to. This scent would work very well as a professional office scent since I doubt it would offend anyone and it sits fairly close to the skin on me. I think this could be worn year-round, and might possibly even work as unisex for some women.

    When I first put this on, I got a slight projection but after about 4 hours it has dwindled into just a nice skin scent, and I really have to shove my nose into my wrist or tuck my face into my shirt to smell it (I did 2 sprays on chest, 1 on each wrist, and 1 at base of neck). If this had more strength Iíd buy a bottle and wear it regularly because I absolutely love how it smells. But, I think Iím going to take a pass on this ďOneĒ and hope to find something that may excite my nose as much as this does but with more oomph!

    As always, your results may vary!

    This fragrance is literally perfect for me.

    I hate scents worn by teenagers or men that you can smell from miles away such as 1 Million.

    I was looking for a classy fragrance that smells good and can be smelt by me and someone close to me...

    This is it.

    I've tried out Dior Homme (&intense) which I found classy but overpowering and too flowery. Chanel Allure Homme was way too synthetic for me and annoyingly strong.

    D&G The One means I won't offend, but compliments my sharp suit, designer watch and winter coat ;)

    People moan about longevity but I can smell the fragrance still 10 hours after applying up close.

    Happy days :)

    I've sampled The One several times now and I'm definitely getting the bottle. I for one think this is Dolce & Gabbana's best male frag. I tried pour homme and it just doesn't work as well as The One. The One has a beautiful arrangement of notes and the tobacco dry down is great! As far as projection and longevity of it...I haven't had any issues yet. I really don't know what people want in colognes but sounds like some people want to get smelled all the way across the room. A wise basenoter once told me " not everything is meant to be blasted" this is a nice everyday/ date night scent that is classy as well as relaxed. No harsh note in the beginning no horrible smelling dry down. It's just right! I definitely plan on making thisy fall signature scent.

    P.s. If you're having issues with longevity then use lotion and apply it to the spot you want to spray and you should be smelling it for hours. I do this with bvgari black all the time!

    Wear this one on your arms, then you can enjoy the skin scent all day. The top is beautiful (orange blossom maybe), but it's gone within an hour (maybe half an hour). The there's some powdery perfume smell that can last for a few hours, especially on clothing, and then there's the tobacco dry down that you can only enjoy if you can press your nose into it, which I recommend to get the most out of this fragrance.

    Between the top notes dissipating and olfactory fatigue, this juice can be a trial for its wearer. Also, I have smelled this on someone else and I liked it less than I thought I would.

    The top on this one is great, and the deodorant stick for this scent smells very good, but the performance of the juice makes it hard for me to give it a thumbs up, but I do, just barely.

    Genre: Woody Oriental

    The One starts out life with a conventional but nicely rendered sweet citrus top note, rounded off by some discreet aromatics and a touch of cardamom. It quickly thickens and sweetens as a clean, but oddly ďartificialĒ smelling white flower accord comes into play. The entire composition then assumes an olfactory texture akin to marshmallow candy, as a cloud of dusty cedar and powdery vanillic notes wells up in the foundation. The result is something like tropical fruit over coconut Ė not far removed, in fact, from a piŮa colada. I smell neither tobacco nor ambergris.

    The poolside cocktail accord chugs right along, little paper parasol and all, until it arrives at its pleasant-but-insipid sweet woody/vanillic drydown. Sillage and projection are both adequate: neither is skimpy, but neither will offend your neighbors. In fact, thereís nothing here at all to hate. Nor, sadly, is there much to celebrate. Were you to take an edgier masculine gourmand Ė A*Men, say, or Lolita Lempicka au Masculin Ė and pare away anything that might cause even the slightest wrinkle of the nose, The One is very likely what youíd get. Unnecessary.
