Dolce & Gabbana The One Light Eau FraƮche


Cordovan is a fragrance by the Californian fashion label Banana Republic, which has been making a name for itself in recent years, especially with its very successful ICON range. The name of the perfume does not reveal itself to me, however, as Cordovan is a type of leather, as far as I know. But from a leather scent Cordovan has, even if listed here, nothing at all...

When I first put on Cordovan - which I bought as a blindbuy (cheaply), having been made aware of it by a video review - this DNA seemed strangely familiar to me. At first, however, I could not clarify for myself what the scent reminded me of. It had to be a familiar, fresh, fruity, aquatic scent. Acqua Di Gio? No. D&G Light Blue? No. Bleu de Chanel? No. Hm. Until I realised I was on the wrong track; it was Dolce & Gabbanas The One that I remembered. It was The One, if you think about its tobacco flavour...

Yes, you could say that Cordovan is an airy and light The One for the spring or summer day. It opens very nicely citric-fresh and fruity. The fruity component settles immediately, while the freshness, enriched with floral and woody notes, remains. As with Bleu de Chanel, although you might think that the fragrance has long since disappeared, the feeling of lasting freshness lingers on. In my opinion, the Achilles' heel of this fragrance is more the lack of sillage than its durability, because after a short time, everything happens relatively close up.

By the way, the flacon (and the outer packaging) unfortunately doesn't look as noble as on the official perfume photo, but as it did below on the one shot by Ernie. But the clear glass flacon also characterizes the perfume better than the brown or half-brown one, since it's rather light and transparent than brown, dark, woody, leathery and heavy...
