    Default The One, a plagiarism of L ̀nstant?

    I think that D & G has tried to make a copy of L Instant de Guerlain with The-One! You can easely smell some of the same odor in these 2. The flacons are quite simular to each other, and the screw cap has olmost the same shape and color..
    -But the quality of the L Instant de Guerlain is much much better than "The One". When "The One" fade out from the skin almost immediately, L Instante lasts for hours and hours!! Its getting better and better, and i want to eat up my hand when smellig it!
    Anyone else who can see d&G`s "robbery" here?

    Apart from some of the loosely-related design elements of the bottle/lid, I personally dont find much of a similarity between the two.
    As I recall, The One is a closer relative to Vera Wang Man in terms of the scent itself, IMO.

    I'd say The One is much more of a half-assed Dior Homme...same perfumer, weak attempt. He again used the idea in Kenzo Power, much more successfully though.

    I've found it similar to Gucci Envy and Vera Wang. The One is less complex, but most of the main notes are there.

    I don't find much similarities. The One is quite fruity- an element that is non-existant in L'Instant.

    And with even weaker longevity.
