    The One Desire by Dolce & Gabbana

    I never met a D&G fragrance I didn't like. The One Desire is no exception.
    After first applying this beautiful scent, it took me about five minutes to realize the startling similarities between Desire and Cartier's now discontinued So Pretty.
    Where Desire has mandarin and bergamot in it's top notes with jasmine in the heart, So Pretty instead has these three identical notes on top. While So Pretty uses blackberry as a topnote, Desire uses instead plum nectar in its middle, which results in a very similar effect. Both rely upon Sandalwood and musk as a base. The drydown of Desire is heavenly, with soft caramel and vanilla. Longevity for me was exceptional, especially for a D&G. Like most D&G's, this was close to the skin for me.
    The One Desire is described in ad campaigns as a fragrance of Desire, Seduction and Strength.
    But it is not seductively beautiful. Rather, it's a classic beauty. But in a somewhat pristine, anesthetized way.
