Soothing soft and elegant, neither too sweet nor too powdery
Dolce & Gabbana The One Gentleman is classified as an Oriental fragrance. To be honest, I’ve read many discordant reviews, some think it is a gorgeous scent whereas some other are really disappointed. I‘ve bought it long ago, I was lucky and got the 100ml for 20 something euro. This morning I looked at the perfume consultant and it suggested me this one as a rarely worn. Thus, I gave it a try and here you are what I got.

TOG opens with a blast of pepper and lavender mix, though the perfume is not aggressive. Overall, the perfume is warm, bright and intriguing. And as the perfume develops, the pepper fades away and the vanilla comes forward with a sugared and sharpened melding of forces. What once was more intriguing, is now more exciting; still beautiful and seductive. At this point, and just for a very short term, I got the aromatic notes of the fennel, Its flavor is reminiscent of licorice or anise. It’s merely a whiff, either you get it or miss it. Although I found contradictory notes on many perfume's blogs like fennel, dill, and watercress, I bet the right note is fennel seeds.

As the perfume continues to morph, the sharpened edges soften, but not by much as the vanilla base continues to provide a sweetened, which clashes with the heart of gorgeous herbal smashed green cardamom pods, so balsamic and kind of a mixture of camphor, eucalyptus, and menthol

The dry down is smoky, it’s all topped off with a bland of vanilla and patchouli, making it soft and elegant, neither too sweet nor powdery. It smells pretty good, not sure it is a unique smell, it reminds me Ambre Noir by Yves Rocher (or perhaps that one reminds this… who knows?).
It is a relatively light scent that starts quite peppery and lavenderish but soon reduces to a delicious potion of vanilla and patchouli. Since it is so modest and quiet, it is perfectly suited for a professional working in an office environment. Its biggest flaw, however, is the lack of longevity, since after only a few hours it stays close to your skin. It does stay on clothes, though. The gourmand nature of this makes it suitable for the young set. The vanilla is very smooth in The One Gentleman, and the lavender is just aromatic enough.
I recommend TOG for the cold season like autumn and winter. Since it is not cloying, it might suit a warm spring day, and perhaps summertime if not too hot. As for occasion, I find it good for day work, business, and leisure time.
Despite average longevity and sillage, I like it and score it 8/10.

Lavender + Vanilla
I smell only lavender, vanilla and patchouli - a little powdery.

Personally i think it's a step below if compared to The One. Also it does not remembers the original one.

It's a very unidimensional scent that sometimes gets cloying.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are average.

Head-turning masculine
I smelt this fragrance on a man August of last year and had to know the name of it. Despite the fact I embarassed my friends by approaching random men in nightclubs and asking what cologne they were wearing, I managed to find out that the man in particular was wearing The One Gentleman.

This is incredibly sexy stuff, not to mention sophisticated too. I found the original The One for Men a little bland, but this flanker is to die for. It has prominent accords of lavender, cardamon, vanilla and patchouli. It's musky, herbaceous, woodsy, spicy and sweet all rolled into one.

It opens quite peppery and spicy, not unlike Bang by Marc Jacobs. Later it settles into a smooth vanilla and lavender blend which is the sexiest part. It's a touch dry but also quite chocolatey and creamy at the same time.

The patchouli in the base creates this gorgeous earthiness that is hard to describe. The scent also turns a little powdery in the drydown which is a surprise, but also something that I admire about this composition. This is probably one of my favourite masculine releases in the last few years. It has a lot to love about it.

There's this beautiful contrast between sweet and spicy, which makes me think that The One Gentleman could in fact be worn by brave ladies. The scent itself is unobtrusive but not too light. It leaves a lovely trail, hence the reason why I approached the man wearing it in the first place. Not to mention, the guy was incredibly cute.

Needless to say, that man that I approached wearing The One Gentleman is now my boyfriend. I didn't date him only because he smelt good, but it was part of the whole package that I just happened to fall in love with.

A soothing cardamom cologne, blend with sparkling pepper, sweet vanilla, and dirty patchouli. Oh man, this is so damn superb and unobtrusive!+1
