Why does such a good scent...
...such a miserable performance?
You ask yourself that more often with some fragrances, a prime example of this question is D&G The One edp.
The One - The One for Dates. It is supposed to serve as an absolute all-purpose weapon and is mentioned virtually everywhere in this context. Personally, I can also really like the DNA, but have opted for the flanker Royal Night.
In the opening, The One edp is fruity and creamy. From the beginning, the fragrance notes of the brilliant orange blossom with the amber stand out (in my opinion, this is the absolute highlight of the fragrance), which is still hiding behind a synthetic grapefruit at the beginning. However, I find the not as awful as in the Bleu de Chanel edT, but more volatile.
The cardamom is also there from the beginning. After a little time, the cardamom becomes more pronounced, tobacco I can not perceive, cedar at most guess. The One manages to be sweet but not too sweet, to be very pleasing and yet stand out (for the designer segment) and despite the incredible popularity in terms of performance to fail across the board. Why is that?
The durability is in everyday life at a good five hours. Something thicker on the arm, protected from fresh air, sunlight or what beautiful things the day brings you so, maybe six hours. After that, it's closing time on the skin. Who would like to participate here a little longer from the fragrance experience, should bathe his clothes in it, whereby: That should be expensive washings!
The sillage does not make it better. Radiates the fragrance at most in the average range for an hour, he is then at the latest absolutely close to the skin. Exactly that makes him unsuitable for me. I have decided, because I still like the DNA, for the more powerful flanker Royal Night. Unfortunately, it lacks the great orange blossom, yet it converts the DNA a bit darker, woodier and slightly smokier - oriental for beginners, so to speak. But now it should not be about.
The bottle is nothing special and no eye candy going out above the average, but can still be seen. Overall, quite valuable with reasonable sprayer.
I would like to recommend the fragrance for intimate or discreet moments such as dates or the office, since the fragrance is unlikely to get on anyone's nerves, for nightlife he is absolutely unsuitable. Most likely I see the fragrance because of its sweetness in autumn, in winter he will probably not survive.
Too bad, "The One" you will not, but you still smell good.
