The One for Men fragrance notes

Reviews of The One for Men

The One is one of the few scents where I feel like I can smell almost every note listed. It's just one of those scents that goes in many different directions. Fresh, sweet, woody, herbal, tobacco, citrus,'s all there.

In the opening, the citrus stands out above the green and cardamom notes. Later, the drydown is sweet tobacco and woods. Not smoky, just green tobacco leaves.

Seems versatile for day or nighttime. Best-suited to cooler weather. Projection is average but longevity is good, lasts all workday.

Classy, distinct fragrance from Dolce & Gabbana!

Reminds me remotely of their By Man scent from a decade ago (now discontinued), with its sweet ginger and floral vibe. Has a nostalgic quality to it akin to scents like Baldessarini Concentrée (except not as loud). I also sense elements of Lagerfeld's Jako in this one, though not as loud and cloying.

The One for Men EdT is an oriental-spicy fragrance that sticks out from the typical offerings you'd find at most larger cologne counters, but it's not for everyone IMO. A test spritz would be in order!

First review. Blind purchase. No regrets. Gets really close to the skin quickly but lasts long on my skin.

Its a shame nice smell loved it the store. Wore it and it has zero longevity. The cedar and tobbaco blend nicely but it drys down to nothing. Id skip this one.
