    ok, went there and turns out that ONLY the tester was eau de parfum. She thought all of them would be but it turns out the rest that where actually being sold where eau de toilette. She took it out and put out a toilette one for the testing. strange.

    hehe, that one sole bottle of secret eau de parfum that escaped the d&g headquarter will become an legendary object of desire among perfume collectors very soon :-). The grail quest begins right now...

    Well i went to victoria gardens outdoor mall in rancho Cucamonga and took a look at their macys and it wasnt there. I asked the lady at the counter and she said that it wont be available till october 1st. Told her that I saw it at The Galleria at Tyler in Riverside and she said that some stores might have it early but that they're not supposed to put it out until all macys stores have it or until oct 1st. So, i think someone didnt get the memo in Riverside. Passed by riverside and they still had it today. unfortunately the ones for sale are not eau de parfum but toilette. One of the testers was but when i pointed it out she said "oh thats not supposed to be here" and put it away. Too bad, cause it did have a nicer richer smell but not by much. I want to get it as well but i already got 3 frags this month so I need to wait for more cash flow. That lady that told me a few days back that they were ALL eau de parfum really messed up. Im thinking most of the department stores like macy's and nordstrom get a nice bottle of the good stuff when the representatives come in to pitch their stuff. Im thinking a newbie marked it as a tester later on. I really wish they would really make available the good stuff as well. This might be the reason why most of these different frags have so little projection and staying power. My GF bought Chanel Mademoiselle the parfum http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2874219?...resultback=100 at that same place (theres a macys and nordstrom right next to each other) for 95 bucks. that thing lasts all day plus the next day on her. we sprayed the eau de toilette and it only lasted 3 hours at best.

    Thanks for the great report! This makes me very curious if (1) the EDP is going to be a future flanker, (2) the EDP is just a marketing trick, or (3) the EDP is going to be co-released as one of the related "perfumed products". I sure hope it's door number three. I'm definitely inclined toward EDPs and parfums - I almost always prefer stronger and closer to lighter and farther.

    If you were watching the posting about YSL L'Homme's upcoming flanker (which turned out to be La Nuit), there was also a rumor that it would be the EDP. The EDP of the original never showed up, but the EDP of La Nuit did. Perhaps that's what's going to happen here. Alternatively, this could be like Hanae Mori HM, which has both EDT and EDP versions from the start, or at least as long as I can remember.

    I got to try this on my lunchbreak today! The Perfume Shop chain in the UK and Ireland have it in stock now. It's priced at €75 for 100mls EDT. Not sure about the 50mls price.

    I got the SA to spray some on a card and onto my hand. I find it very, very similar to The One. This isn't a completely new fragrance with a similar name by any means. It retains many of the elements of The One, but seems fresher and not as heavy or cloying. I can definitely detect the lavender and fennel notes, and an apple vibe also if I'm not mistaken. To me, it's like a refined, softer, more elegant take on the original, while still smelling a lot like it. If that's what they were going for, then they pretty much nailed it. I actually find it an improvement on the original I have to say. Quite impressed!

    I can't comment yet on the sillage or longevity really, as it's only on my hand. I'll be interested to see how long it lasts!

    Sounds interesting! Waiting for your update on sillage and longevity. BTW, is it similar to Boss Bottled in any way (apple/vanilla combo)?

    I would say average sillage and average longevity. After about 4-5 hours it was still reasonably strong, but very much a skin scent. Sillage is decent for 2-3 hours, but seems to fade after that. Take that with a pinch of salt though, as I think I suffer from the infamous "olfactory fatigue"! Hehe.

    It's not a million miles from BOSS bottled, but as I say, it's really much closer to the original The One. It's just been tweaked towards a fresher, slightly more lavender/patchouli smell...to my untrained nose anyway!

    It's very pleasant stuff I must say though. I keep bringing my hand to my nose to smell it.

    Tried this but only on a sample card yesterday. It is NOTHING like Boss Bottled and it also doesn't share too much with the original The One for men. It is indeed a more elegant and refined take on the original. As I remember the opening is warmer then the late drydown. In the opening there is a slight hint of apple indeed. The middle section has the fennel and lavender. The base is patchouli with subtle vanilla. I will try it again on skin next week but sillage seems to be weak (I also tried Body Kouros on a card ( Marzipan!!) which was very loud).
    Acqua di Giò is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?

    So I picked up this fragrance at Macy's yesterday. They had just gotten it in on Friday and it wasn't even on display yet.

    I wore the fragrance for the first time today and here are my findings...

    The opening is herbal/oriental. You definitely pick up the cardamom note in the opening and this is the note that will remind you of the original "The One." That is basically the only similarity.

    After the opening and about 45 mins into the fragrance you can smell the lavender note. This is only point in the fragrance where the sillage is average.

    In the dry down you pick up a vanilla note. The vanilla is not a sweet gourmand type of note. Think vanilla bean ice cream and that is what the note resembles. I didn't really pick up the patchouli note but its definitely there because it does seem to help the longevity of the fragrance.

    Overall, I found the herbal/oriental opening to be very synthetic. The fragrance is at its best about 1 hr - 3hrs after application. That is when you get the lavender and the lavender is done quite well. The sillage is average during the middle but the opening and dry down is disappointing. Longevity was average. I would guess 6-8 hrs tops. After 5 hrs you could still smell the fragrance on the skin but it had zero projection at all. I think D&G would have had a winner here if the fragrance had a stronger opening and if the fragrance projected better. Practical use of this fragrance would be day time office setting or day time casual as the scent is very inoffensive. Ideal temperature/climate would be 45-65 degrees. Any cooler the scent won't cut through the cold air and any warmer you are better off with a scent like L'Eau D'Issey as it is fresher and projects nicely for a fresh spring/summer scent.

    Overall rating : 6.5/10
    If it had a better opening and better sillage I would give it an 8/10.

    I tend to agree with your description PhlyerFan but the opening wasn't too synthetic for me. I think D&G's purpose was to create a pleasing casual chic and elegant office fragrance: you don't have to aspect huge sillage from The One Gentleman. If that is what they were going for, they succeeded IMO.

    Those who expect a stronger version of The One for Men will be disappointed.
    Acqua di Giò is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?

    I was in wal mart with my friend and he handed me the magazine with the sample in it. As I tried to open the flap I ripped the whole page as a woman was walking by that I didnt notice. I was standing in her way. She looked in her late 40s early 50s, was prolly a looker when she was my age :P anyways. She said, "want me to smell it for ya so you'll know if the gals will like it?" and im like "ehh.. sure" she sniffs it and says "yep, they'll really like that one." I shouldve told her, "darn, too bad im married." My hand touched her face too, that was awkward...

    Maybe if we say this enough D&G will notice. Maybe we can get D&G to re-release their best fragrance, and throw their anthology series to the dustbin.

    Agreed! That Anthology series is an utter embarassment.

    Have it on my right wrist, right now, and its been 3 hours since I applied, so this is a description of the dry down. On my skin, it smells like a smokey Boss Bottled drydown, with the nasty smelling woody note that puts me off BB removed and replaced with what I can only describe as a 'mellow' cedar. This wood note has none of the sharp 'pencil shavings' feel you usually get with cedar, but is still reminiscent of it. The note certainly does not smell of Patchouli as the notes list says.

    And just because I have compared it to Boss Bottled, don't be mistaken to think there is an apple note in The One Gentleman, because I dont get any apple from Boss Bottled in the first place, just a woody spicy vanilla. So to me, The One Gentleman is a Smokey Woody Spicy Vanilla.

    I bought the 1oz bottle - gonna keep it as a travel size - but wore this today and received compliments while in a meeting. Personally, I couldn't even smell it, but the women in the meeting just kept saying that I always smell great, but this one stood out to them. Perhaps it was the vanilla?

    Regardless, this one I can wear, the original actually broke me out!

    Tried it at Nordstrom today. It is similar to the original, which I think I still prefer, since it features citrus and is thus much brighter. Gentleman, on the other hand, is much more subdued. Much more of a woody, vanilla scent than the original. Longevity was excellent on me.
