    Default D&G The One Longevity/Projection question

    Just purchased a bottle from a great gent. here on the forums. I do have a question though, for those of you who have a bottle of The One, how is the longevity and projection?
    I'm deciding whether to add it to my class-scent rotation (typically I sit within 1 - 1.5 feet of the people around me) or to simply keep it as a date scent, for those occasions where I know the person will be within 6 inches of me.

    So, what do you guys think? Is the projection good enough to where it can be picked up 1 foot away?

    Projection is great. Longevity is weak.

    Skin-scent; poor longevity.

    This has always worked better for me that what I've heard from others. I can always smell it on me at the end of a long night. However, the scent cloud is not very large... probably 2 feet for the first few hours, within 1 feet for the last few hours.

    For me, projection seems a little weak. Longevity is below average, but better than it's reputation.

    The scent makes up for the other deficiencies. I love it and will probably always own it.

    Never noticed how it projects, as it vanishes within half an hour to an hour!
