    Default Dolce and Gabbana The One Longevity/Projection

    So i've heard many mixed reviews on the projection and longevity of this fragrance. I LOVE the smell of it, but haven't been able to try it on my skin yet.

    How many hours do you guys get with this?

    I don't want to buy it unless I get about 6-8 hours at least =/

    Honestly one of the worst in terms of longevity/projection that I own. It's hard to even put a number on it because it's so faint. I never got close to 6-8 hours let's say that. If they made an extreme version I'd be all over it. But I do love the smell, just wished it would last!

    The One for Men by Dolce & Gabbana - The melange of grapefruit, basil and coriander in the opening yields a sweet, orangey flavor, reminiscent of creamy, tropical fruit. This satisfying opening scales down to the welcoming heart, with its orange blossom, ginger and cardamon, making a soft floral and peppery concoction. As the base rises to usurp the heart, its dry cedar and faint touches of tabacco and ambergris mix with some vanilla, adding a bit of powder, to give a lightly sweet, woody undercurrent to its warm spices and a subtle muskiness. This exotic fragrance runs the gamut of a woody, soft floral and sweet spicy composition. By the way, if any of you find any projection lying around, it might belong to this fragrance inasmuch as it lost any that it ever may have had, and to compound the indignity, the longevity is likewise deporable.

    you won't get anywhere near 6-8 hours with this one ...

    If worn in really hot weather, it'll probably last 6+ hours.

    I get about 6 hours as well, but Projection is a fail since the 20 minute mark.

    I can only notice the scent for upwards of 2 hours, unless I sniff my wrist. Which is a shame as it starts out so beautifully.

    It lasts about 5-6 hours on me. Projection is very light after the first hour. Probably the closest skin scent in my wardrobe.

    I also love the scent of The One, but unfortunately, longevity and sillage are both an issue that can't be solved even before putting lotion on the neck and wrists.

    I really love the smell but don't talk about the projection which is terrible! and for longevity, in cold months I get only 2 hour but in hot spring days and summer maybe you can get around 6 hour!

    Usually lasts three hours on me, four if I'm lucky. Projection is terrible after about an hour. After about four or five hours at most, it's gone.

    I finally got a good bottle and 4 sprays have lasted all day for me with great projection and strength. Very enjoyable. I bought a 1 OZ tester unboxed at an outlet this past summer. I lucked up.

    Very nice scent, but really poor longevity and projection.

    Hours?! I think you mean minutes with this guy! Truly terrible. Great smelling stuff, but really almost criminal to release this as a fragrance as it serves little/no purpose because it's SO weak and short lived.

    Hands down the most frustrating fragrance in my collection.

    It lasts 6-8 hours on my skin by doing close sprays (spritzer about one inch to the skin).

    Yeah. I really enjoy the scent. I picked up a sample at Sephora a few days ago to finally give it a proper wearing or two. Or 3.

    I tend to get excellent longevity from scents, including many people complain about. Gucci Pour Homme II, for example: people bash it for having poor longevity, but I easily get 12 hours. John Varvatos (original): I easily get 10+ hours.

    ...but The One?

    4 hours, at best, and it becomes Wile E Coyote running off a cliff. It's there. It's there. It's... it's...... GONE.

    Does that technique really work, or is it your skin?

    I tend to spray on clothes. Longevity is great on material.

    The day they release a parfum version of The One, it will instantly become one of my go-to colognes. Until then, I only wear it on nighttime first dates, which typically last about six hours. Spraying heavily on my skin and on my undershirt is the only way I can get it to last that long.

    After a first date, I usually switch to GIT or New Haarlem because they'll last overnight on my skin, and work for the once-in-a-blue-moon occasions when the lady and I hit it off.

    I do close sprays for most of my fragrances. I have dry skin, and I always apply lotion on and let it dry for at least 30 mins. before spraying any fragrance. I never spray on clothes.

    I'd go with The One Gentleman - it lasts longer and with a bit more projection.
