Reviews of The One for Men

Slightly sweet, orange peel, wood. An underlying freshness from the greens.

Faint ambergris, faint tobacco... at times they are totally absent even. More of it would have helped. If then it was also less sweet and orangy, it might have even been a Tabac 2.0 because the basil and coriander are so interesting. As is, it's inoffensive and okay but forgettable.

If you sample the wares of a fragrance counter of a mid-tier American department store, The One seems like a model of good taste. It's elegantly blended, but its versatility comes at the cost of personality; The One offers a vague impression of sophistication and richness, but it's not one that lingers in the mind.

The One Men - Dolce & Gabanna
Good stuff. Interesting vetiver-soap and chocolate impression with lively herbal and bitter-anisic undertones. Helds up its slight herbal-camphorous tonality towards the dryout but loses some of its rich- and thickness. Dryout is rather cool, in a good way, with a dry woody, sweet tobacco and a salty radiance. Made on a tight buget I pressume, but still manages to stay fascinating till the end. Cohesive, not too strong and keeps up a lively, natural fraicheur. Good work.

Love this scent with cardamon & ambergris. However, I find the projection, longevity, and sillage lacking.

This was the first fragrance I bought as an adult male. It has a ton of nostalgia for me, but I think I can be objective here.

When I first bought this in 2009 there was nothing else like it. It had a subtle sweetness to it, a light yet rich spice and tobacco combination. This scent will forever remind me of changing seasons.

I want to talk about the EDT vs the EDP here, too. I think if you love this fragrance, owning both is the way to go. I don't see the EDP as a strict replacement for this bottle, because they are subtly different and consequently their applications are not the same.

The DNA is very much the same. In the opening they are nearly identical. Where they differ is in the dry down. There is something almost darker, definitely deeper, about the EDP. And there's a note that isn't present in the EDT. There's almost an incense or patchouli note in there. It's almost like the incense note in ADG Profumo.

But seeing as how the EDT doesn't have that note, it's a touch lighter, lasts a bit less. And for this reason I don't restrict it to colder weather. You can pull this off in the summer with relative ease. Not to say you would; there are tons of fragrances far better suited for the summer months.

Try before you buy. But if you love it, keep a bottle of both around. I haven't had much luck with the flankers for this one.

I'm wearing it right now at work: it's mid-September and raining.

Wear this one in the fall, when it rains, maybe in late March. Much better for daytime than a night out. It's safe for work, for a casual date. You can wear it at home, at night, in your favorite chair, reading a magazine. It's not right for a suit, the clubs, or intimate encounters.

Scent: 8/10

Longevity: 6/10

Sillage: 5/10

This has a nice sweet boozy amber scent to it, with a hint of sweet tobacco. It's nice but nothing special compared to other amber offerings. In fact I think I prefer Boss Bottled Intense Eau de Parfum to this as well, which interestingly smells similar to Dolce & Gabbana The One but projects and lasts way longer. Projection is moderate while longevity is weak. It's nice, but nothing that great.

4/5
