    Default Really enjoying Dolce&Gabbana The One..suggestions on similar?

    I remember I only picked up up a bottle because I found a super deal on it and purchased it knowing I didn't get the best longevity or projection out of it but since i've tried it on several times and i've enjoyed each wearing a lot now i'm looking for something that can compete with this frag that provide a similar vibe? ie a dark fruity smell without straying into 'fresh' territory.

    I've heard Frapin 1270 is somewhat similar but suffers from the same performance issues, are there any others worth looking into?

    I think the best thing to do for people that get poor longevity out of The One is to decant some into a travel atomizer spray throughout the day.

    Why get something else that you think smells the same?

    Might as well get more of that if you don't like variety.

    I got a bit better projection and longevity out of the reform version when I did a recent side by side testing on my hand at the same time. Though perhaps the older bottle is just older thats why it didnt project quite as strong. That being said the reform is a little harsher and potentially offensive I think at the start, so the extra spiciness could be why I perceptive it as being stronger since it tended to tickle my nose for longer/farther away.

    I've really never had longevity or projection issues with this one. Not sure of anything similar.

    3 sprays for me lasts 8 hours no problem.

    I do agree with this:
