Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum: Review

Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum - A warm, oriental floral, with modern sensuality, a fragrance with a strong personality and a contrasting golden sweetness. Created for the ultimate diva, The One is at once tempting, modern, and glamorous, embracing a touch of classicism. The top notes radiate a vibrant luminosity, with a sun-touched citrus while warm fruity notes of luscious lychee and succulent peach add to the delight.  The passionate heart evokes an exploding femininity, with an opulent floral soul, creating a distinct, audacious signature.  An unexpected hint of plum glows as the base finally blooms with luscious allure into the lasting warmth of vanilla and sweetened ambery-musk notes.

I bought the Dolce and Gabba The One Eau de Parfum from Sephora a couple of months back expecting it to be a smaller spray version, or at least that was what was written on the site, so imagine my disappointment when I open the package and find a "Fragrance Pen" inside!  I know Sephora accepts returns, but once I smelled this vanilla-scented perfume I couldn't return it :D

There's a warm, musky sweetness to this perfume that I love, and this is one of the few perfumes that actually lasts and lasts forever on my skin.  I don't get much of the citrus notes, but I definitely do detect a fruity sweetness to it.  Add in some warm vanilla, and I just cannot resist it!  The only issue I have had with this is, again, with the roller ball itself - it doesn't seem to glide all that easily, and I need to roll it over and over again to get it working.  I am not a huge fan of this packaging to start with - keep wondering about all that it's picking up and putting back into the bottle - and I couldn't bring myself to return once I started using it, so I am stuck with it.  Despite my long list of complaints about it, Dolce & Gabbana The One is one of my favorite perfumes.  This is definitely one for people who like sweeter-smelling fragrances and would be better suited for the winters.  I would recommend getting a spray version, though.

    1. I still haven't gotten into the mentality of returning used products either...once I swiped the roller on my skin, I feel like it's wrong to return it...though here they have great return policies and don't even ask anything...but still. The only time I have returned a product is when I accidentally ordered 2 nail polishes from Nordstrom. I was feeling so uncomfortable, and the SA didn't have ask me anything..!!!

  4. Another one of my 'me' perfumes :) The original packaging is pretty dashing, a heavy cubical stunted bottle with a gorgeous golden square cap. Sadly quite heavy for carrying around!

    So I guess its, Chanel M, This One, Angel and... Lancome Hypnose - for me!
