Word has it that Dolce & Gabbana will release a new “The One” edition at the end of last year, and it was true for UK, US and other parts of the world – but not for Malaysia.
When I finally received the parcel and unboxed the package to discover this little bottle of sunshine, it just came to my mind: the bare-all “The One” has decided to cover up.
It was “bare-all” because the original bottle is an elegant transparent glass flacon; it was “covered up” because “The One” is now completely clad in opaque platinum, to become the new “The One” Limited Edition, or alternatively called “The One” Platinum.
The content of the bottle remains the same as the original edition’s released in 2008. Theoretically, this post may serve effectively as a review for the original “The One” as well.
Top Note: Grapefruit, coriander, basil
Middle Note: Cardamom, ginger
Base Note: Cedar, ambergris and tobacco
“The One” is of the woody spicy family (and so is the Platinum.) I love that it smells warm, classy and elegant. It’s a little sweet, yet still masculine – I casually refer to it as “the smell of a father.” #lol
Although the scent formulae is said to remain unchanged, I noticed there’s a stronger citrus scent coming from the Top Note when compared with the original edition. 15 minutes into wearing the Platinum, I realised it was back to familiar scent of “The One” again.
In terms of longevity, it may not have been receiving great reviews. But personally I think it still performs great – say, 8 hours? However, what others said about its sillage is true: it’s a minimal sillage fragrance. In other words, you’ll have to stay close to your skin in order to notice and smell the scent.
If you love woody scent, and haven’t tried “The One” original edition, or you’re a perfume collector, consider giving “The One” for Men Limited Edition a shot. It is now available in Malaysia, fellas.
