    Default Looking for something similar to D&G The One. but niche

    Hello, I'm looking for something similar to The One but niche, with better performance and more depth. It doesn't have to smell exactly like The One, but the smooth, comforting vibe is something I really covet in a fragrance. From what I gather, Back to Black and Jubilation XXV do this quite well, and I've ordered samples. What else should I look into?

    Frapin Speakeasy has the same tobacco and dried fruit combination with a nice mint opening replacing the cardamom/ginger opening of The One. Very nice fragrance.

    This is a very good suggestion and much better IMO.

    I get better performance with The One EdP than Jubilation XXV...

    Another suggestion, though this one is extremely niche: James Heeley's Phoenicia has a dominant raisin/sultana note that reminds me a lot of The One, but rather than using tobacco as the counterpoint, Phoenicia's masculine backbone comes from birch tar, incense and oud. It's actually softer and friendlier than that might all sound, and even dries down to a soft, slightly soapy, comforting scent.

    I still think Speakeasy is an obvious niche equivalent to The One, but if you want to keep exploring the dried fruit genre, Phoenicia is a great one to explore and in any case, it's a great fragrance in its own right.

    Frapin 1270 - To my nose, is the boozier and more syrupy niche version of D&G The One.

    So I've hears both Frapin 1270 and Speakeasy, what's the difference?

    Seconding Chergui and perhaps the entire house of Serge Lutens, as their more vanillic, boozy and/or sweet tobacco dominated fragrances could be close to the fragrance range of The One

    I own 1270 but never tried Speakeasy, so personally couldn't tell you the difference. I had The One when I tried 1270, and straight away I thought it was similar to The One. It is far more superior though! It has longevity and wraps you in a very comforting, warm, syrupy hug!
