As it was envisioned by designers, The One is a fragrance for an exceptional woman who instantly draws attention, not only with her looks, but also with her manners, pose and inner world. This fragrance, like all of the fragrances of D&G house, is a ‘fragrance with character’, special and alluring. Its oriental floral-fruity composition is very warm and sensual with powdery vanilla trace. The color of the fragrance perfectly matches its tone.
The composition opens with softly fresh mandarin, bergamot, litchi and peach. The heart is thin and balmy, with the notes of jasmine, lily of the valley and white lily which graciously intertwine with the fruity touch of plum. The woodsy-powdery base is created of vetiver root, amber, musk and vanilla. The One was created in 2006.
The One is 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.
Like the woman that wears it, the strength and uniqueness of Dolce & Gabbana The One fragrance comes from contrast. Used to adorn pulse points or misted into the air to fall in a scented aura, The One is a modern ‘floriental’ eau de parfum combining contemporary fruit ingredients with the perfumer’s classic palette of white flowers. “Every woman is The One!” Stefano Gabbana.
Conceptualized by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, The One, beaming in gold, was meant to be seen, celebrated and adored. The bottle pays homage to perfumery tradition while being a perfect example of luxurious style.

My Review for Dolce and Gabbana The One Perfume for Women
I am a person who gets gravitated towards more musky and sweet smells over the fruity and floral ones. I sniffed a magazine sample sometime back and I was straight in LOVE how this had the most unique feminine scent I had smelled in ages. Of course scents are a matter of personal preference and if I may confess I am crazy about perfumes and very particular about what scent I am putting on for what occasion. Scents are special to me.
This scent is not on your face strong, but Dolce and Gabbana The One is young, classy, sweet and sexy. I love how it does not essentially changes the scent on the skin by the end of the day. You still have the same scent. It has this velvety touch to it, which just keeps you committed to itself!
This scent is more sophisticated feminine scent. I wouldn’t recommend it for teenagers but office goers would love this. If you have this, you must definitely wear this when you go out on a date with your man next time. 😉 Important point here is, it is quite easy to over apply this perfume so you need to be careful with that. When it comes to staying power, this baby makes best friends with your skin. On me, it stays put for 5-6 hours when others can smell it. I can smell it on myself even at the end of the day. I have had numerous compliments on this scent and people keep asking me about it.
Well I do agree this is hell lota costly for a 50 ml bottle but knowing it is Dolce and Gabbana, what else can we expect?
