The full information will be soon, and now - the bottle.
The scent will appear in fall.
Apparently, this is supposed to be an "understated oriental" and "gentlemanly" in a modern way.
I just hope that this one will be less understated than the original.

The description. The One Gentleman “has an understated oriental note, conceived to attract a sophisticated and confident consumer”; the notes include pepper, lavender, fennel, cardamom, patchouli and vanilla.
Hmm... Think this will be sth boring. Unfortunately, the perfumer is not Olivier Polge...
If the scent is as nice as the bottle this will be a winner!!!
I have The One. I doubt this one will be stronger, but hope so.
Strange, in one picture the liquid is black, and in the other pale blue!
The One is Woody Spicy, and this one Oriental. I don't think it will be more strong. However nice design. just appearance satisfy you for buying it.
I hope that this one doesn't have that strange and suffocating note that the one has on the basenotes, that only appears sometimes...
I've been wanting to get a bottle of D&G The One for the last few months, but couldn't bring myself to do so. Now this?!
Cest Le Vie.
I am interested in this because of the lavender. Not even the boutiques know about this scent yet.

I like the original lots. One of my fav designer frags.
I post lots from my I phone so if this looks like a text message that's why ( :
I just smelled "The One" again today at the mall. Still smells quite a bit like Pi to me. My wife likes it because she says that it smells just like Pi and Obsession.
Hmmm that fennel/cardamom combo could be interesting, if they are so kind as to make it detectable.

I read that this is available now in the UK (on Ebay Germany a bottle popped up and the seller writes that he bought it there). If so, has anybody already tested it?
ooh, looking forward to this!!....
Can't wait to give this one a try, the notes sound wonderful!
I will give it a sniff as well.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Looking forward to trying this one. While it is a little on the weak side, I really enjoy the original.
The bottle looks really good. I loved the original, but it's way too weak to be worth wearing, except when I 'm home with my girlfriend maybe. I hope this one will be stronger and longer lasting.
I must say that I'm looking forward to this.....I hope it's not a let down.....It wouldn't be the first that's for sure!
It's now at Harrods.
Just wondering if any of our British friends have tried it already.
There's 2x 50ml bottles available on ebay UK (though they ship worldwide):
I was tempted to get it, but to be honest I wasn't THAT blown away by the original, and £30 is kinda high to me for a complete blind buy with absolutely no reviews to go off of.
The One seemed to have a very radiant and diffusive patchouli/vanilla/sandalwood accord that wasn't bad, just too loud and sweet....if this tempers that a bit, and gives it an overall less sweet character, It could be a winner, as the one had much redeeming about it imo.
This one will be absolulety new fragrance, with no resemblance to the original The One.
And according to the advertising campaign, The One Gentleman is like a sporty version of The one, but named without a word "sport".
Bottle looks amazing.

Anyhow, I'm glad Olivier isn't the nose behind this scent. I really like the color of the juice and the notes sound interesting enough. Looking forward to this.
Did anyone have the chance to try it already?
Acqua di Giò is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?
Well vanilla + patchouli ... that right there alone has got me wanting to try this. And the notes do not look like a sporty version of the original. Hopefully its not a flop...

Anyone smelled this yet? The magazines are full of ads for it, but I've yet to see it anywhere!
It's exclusive to Harrods for now, available nationwide in a couple of weeks.
It's now on Ulta website:
Interestingly, they mention apple and grapefruit, the notes that were not listed in the press release...
I love a well done apple note. It's sad that it's so extremely rare to see one well done! Anyhow, I'll remain optimistic here, because with the addition of apple and grapefruit, this sounds really, really good.
I'm hoping the grapefruit is tart and the pepper isn't too noticeable, used instead just to add bite to the grapefruit note. Something like Givenchy Play's opening, but with an apple twist.
Saw this in Macy's this past week and tried it. Its a really nice fall/winter fragrance, especially for fall. Here where I Live theres a town near by called Oak Glen in CA and its known for their apples in the fall. This fragrance reminds me of that town during the fall. Its a very smooth warm smell with a touch of vanilla. the smell is very deep and comforting. hoping to get a sample so i can try it out further
There's a scent strip in this month's Men's Health with Drew Brees on the cover. The tart of grapefruit isn't there, but you do get the sweetness of the grapefruit with some nice woods. Seems very classy and pleasant from what I can tell from the strip.
I'm getting good vibes for this one. Can't wait to try it!
Oh by the way this bottle at macy's was a eau de parfum and not de toilette. Went for 73 dollars
