    The One smells superb.

    If it performed like La Nuit it would probably be too much for the world to handle.

    La Nuit slightly better than The One on scent alone, and slightly better compliment getter I think. Both awesome, The One more versatile.

    Default Re: The One vs La Nuit?

    The one by far in terms of smell. Although in terms of compliments from girls they are pretty close, maybe more so for the one but in all fairness I wear it more as well.

    Thought the OP said not to consider projection

    Anyway, LaNuit would be the winner for me, for scent alone.

    This a difficult choice in my opinion, not if someone likes both, but also since (in my opinion) these fragrances perform quite similarly in terms of longevity and projection, albeit with entirely different notes and referring strictly to the EDT version of La Nuit barring any flankers.

    My preference is slightly biased in favor of La Nuit, but still keeping The One in mind as more than honorable mention/second option.

    Well the good news is, in terms of projection the one does not win, so it all evens out in some strange way


    OP has this same question on Fragrantica also, and I'll say what I said there -- for me, these are two apex predators when it comes to designer romantic female-compliment-attracting awesome-smelling scents. For me, La Nuit is a little less versatile than The One, La Nuit performs better in terms of longevity and projection than the One, for me La Nuit has been a slightly better compliment-getter. But regarding scent alone, it's a push -- I bet you'll have 50% of people liking one, 50% liking the other, both are widely admired on scent alone. The other scent which I'd put up against these two is L'Instant de Guerlain, similarly beautiful romantic scent

    As discussed in the "Ridicule" thread, The One can open surprisingly large considering how fleeting it can be on some people. This may be compounded by the fact that, in order to get more longevity, people spray more. What that all boils down to is -- with The One, I spray at least 30 minutes before I go out, and preferably longer. Similar to Nautica, which also has a big (and shrill, IMO) opening.

    THIS!!!!!!!!!

    Scent-wise, I'd choose The One, but I hate how it wears, so I don't own it. The One starts so BIG - too big for my tastes. But it fades away surprisingly quickly. I like moderate projection with excellent longevity. But The One gives me huge projection with disappointing longevity.

    This too.

    Choose either? I chose neither.

    La Nuit for me. Though I actually dislike the smell of The One, so it wasn't a hard pick.

    I find La Nuit more elegant. But both are sensual fragrances

    Default Re: The One vs La Nuit?

    The One.

    Amazing scent, and although the OP mentioned that he isn't concerned about longevity, sillage and projection, I'm pretty lucky in the sense that it has pretty good performance on me.

    Amazing that in a sea of new releases, reformulations, and flankers it has never dawned on DG to release an intense, extreme, or parfum version of The One...

    For me la nuit hands down. I liked the one when I first sprayed it but then it really smells like I accidentally spilled Hawaiian punch on myself.

    The One is fruity, bright while La Nuit is dark and kind of mysterious.
    You cannot compare them because they do not have the same ADN.
    For personal use I would definetly buy The One, but if I want to get noticed, definetly La Nuit because of better projection.
