    I like both scents, but The One by D&G has longevity issue on a lot of people myself included. Bleu de Chanel - despite being a fresh scent - lasts longer on my skin. If you can sample both, do it. My personal preference: BdC easily over The One.

    Why get either? Do you like them both? Which do YOU like better? Get that one!

    Bleu, unless you can deal with the horrid longevity of The One, which otherwise is a nice frag.

    I have and like both, but I'd recommend Bleu simply because it does project and last longer.

    Neither is worth any investment, IMO. I recommend looking for other options at the same or lower price points.

    Definetly Bleu. The One's projection and longevity is just...how do I say it...F***ING AWFUL.

    If you are high school junior, I'd recommend Bleu - it's just going to be so much more appropriate for almost any situation you will likely be in and it is so much more refined than the harshly slapped together The One that for me, it is hardly a debate.

    If you are getting a citrus, why don't you consider:

    Hermes Concentre Eau D'Orange Verte - it will make you the best smelling guy in your school

    Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche - a little tartier lemon and tonka bean for longevity and sweetness.

    Best of luck in your search.

    The One is a far superior scent, to me. It smells better than Bleu, is less synthetic, and is just a more rounded composition.

    But . . .

    The One has well documented longevity issues, while Bleu lasts and lasts (at least on my skin). Considering your age, finances, the fact that Bleu is far from bad, and the fact that Bleu probably smells more familiar to most high school girls, I'd suggest Bleu.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    The One is miles ahead of Bleu , which IMO is very generic and boring . I just can't think of a positive adjective that goes along with Bleu . It isn't sexy , nor special , definitely not jaw-dropping . It is just another scent , meh .
    If you want a good one from Chanel I suggest Egoiste .

    Bleu de Chanel for sure! Smells better and has way much better longevity and projection. But that's just my opinion.

    The One -- it's complex and unique. On my skin, it lasts 8+ hours by doing close sprays.

    Bleu de Chanel is a synthetic mess.

    If The One had any longevity at all, I'd go there...but since it doesn't, another vote for Bleu.

    There are much better choices out there. Buy Bleu de Chanel if you want to smell like a lot of other guys or a just cleaned locker room or be labeled "the cologne guy". You might want to sample Platinum Egoist while you're at the Chanel counter, if you're looking for a girl pleaser.

    Considering that you're not talking about casual "throw away" money here, the only way you should decide is by sampling them both and deciding which one *you* prefer. With all the good will in the world, there's no way anyone here can decide that for you, and you absolutely should not buy something because someone else likes it.

    I have a firm favorite, but I'm not going to tell you what it is because I'm 54 and I'm not you. My 19-year-old nephew has the opposite firm favorite, but though he is nearer your age, he still isn't you.

    Both fragrances are commonly available, so I would think you could find a store selling them easily enough. So one day, have a spray of one and spend the day with it to see how it develops, then another day do the same with the other. You should be able to work out which one you prefer easily enough - and you should enjoy the process too

    D&G The One has terrible projection and longevity, even though it smells amazing. Bleu de Chanel lasts longer and projects pretty well.

    Bleu.. It smells great, is non offensive when you are close to others, and the females seem to really like it.

    It smells fantastic, projects big, lasts a long time, and garners compliments. Oh, and it has a sweet magnetic cap.

    D&G The One is an amazing scent IMO. Get this and take it to school with you - re-apply it half way through the day.
