The Signorina drinks sweetened latte with fruits
The first thing I sniff in the beginning is actually a deliciously sugared latte. Here The Only One goes already in the direction of Black Opium, only without the pompous Jaeinen and the orange blossom. Then the bergamot adds fruity notes. In this very entertaining phase, the fragrance reminds me very easily of La Nuit Trésor, whom I absolutely love. It simply doesn't smell as sweet and pompous as Black Opium, but pleasantly sweet and seductive. After a few minutes, the coffee note becomes slightly weaker and the iris appears, rounding off the fragrance in harmony with the violet. The base is the same as Signorina Misteriosa's, namely creamy vanilla and soft patchouli, and indeed The Only One reminds us of this fragrance in the base. However, it lacks the fruity, sour sweetness of Signorina Misteriosa's blackberry, which contrasts so beautifully with the warm creaminess of vanilla and patchouli. Rather, the one becomes flowing into the other, almost becoming a mush of unity.

Unfortunately The Only One drifts too much into the "washed-out" after the great fruity milk coffee start in the top note, almost inconspicuous ones, otherwise I would have found him super and he would have become a candidate for purchase. However, it still smells very pleasant and pleasant on the skin.

At The Only One I imagine a woman who fascinates me. A woman who looks familiar and yet exotic. She is pretty, intelligent and full of life and her eyes sparkle greenish like those of a cat. The men are after her in droves and even married men want to kiss her. But she remains strong and rejects them all, for she loves only one. He captivates them with his charisma, his wit, his masculinity, his strength. With him she can be herself, drop herself and feel secure. He's her Only One.

Conclusion: a pleasant and pleasing, seductive fragrance with a great start and an unfortunately slightly disappointing further course.

Cuddle corner in the Swingerclub
There's no The Only One for gentlemen. Tzzzz... Fun. There are already enough flankers and sausages of this hit from the men and ladies at Dolce & Gabbana. Then the women's version will be tested. I recently read an article anyway about the fact that in the coming decades the artificially set gender boundaries, also in the mainstream, could be blurred or completely dissolved - so D&G is perhaps only ahead of time and "The Only One" may be worn by everyone?! ;-)

Yes, of course anyone can wear it. Any scent can be worn by anyone. But "The Only One" might even be a good choice, it's a kind of caffeinated floral. Sensual but with a serious look, erotic but still playful enough, sweet but with an adult bitterness. I like it very much. Coffee break at the Dirnenhaus. Those who like the purple pastilles and/or belong to the coffee junkies are welcome to sniff around here and will be safe and sound. Surprisingly little sugared, beautifully soft and round, harmonious and of high quality. You can't say anything against that in the designer area. Sprightly, rotten, snotty "Black Opium" version, which should have been a bit dirtier and more angular, but still cast a deep spell on me.

Flacon: not quite as stylish as Chanel for example, but D&G can still make it pretty
Sillage: discreet with taste... doesn't make any sense. But it's like that.
Shelf life: 7 hours, completely ok. Rather even more.

Conclusion: French kiss during a sexy coffee party with hidden violet pastille - unfortunately awesome!

Black opium with a little less coffee and a little more sweet
I like The Only One! Really, really! The first impression was original: "That's what... Black opium!" But last night I did the test: left Black Opium and right The Only One.

Both start the same, but The Only One is fruitier, rounder, more gourmand. Somehow more coherent. For me, then. The coffee note disappears quickly (if it's coffee, you know, my nose and the pyramids... ^^), which stays with Black Opium and is nice black, deep, tasty and constant, and takes the fruity sweetness of Black Opium on my skin, which one has with The Only One.

In the end, the man in bed only said (on the RIGHT side): "Hmmm, you smell good, though!" I put my left arm out to him (Black Opium, that's what he likes): "Pooh, he's much stronger."

I would rate The Only One more suitable for everyday use, a mood scent again, nothing for very hot days now, but for the rest. The Sillage is good, but it develops quickly very closely.

I like both scents and both start almost the same, but develop differently, but both are really great. I really wanted to try that out, especially since I would really call Black Opium a twin fragrance.

The bottle is quite simple and minimalistic, we already know that from D & G. :-)

Where Black Opium might already be one tack too crass or inappropriate, then The Only One takes over. I'd love it if it could stay with us. I think it's a pity that I don't have Poison Girl anymore and could test it directly, because from the fruity note I also thought about it when it developed

Cuddly eroticism with sensuality potential!
I've known The Only One for a few months. The noble bottle and the brownish liquid, in particular, look noble and match the concept: The Only One is a frothy cappuccino with a hazelnut aroma. It's evening, you hear the Toni Braxton song "The Heat" and you imagine yourself relaxing with a hot cup of cappuccino with hazelnut with your partner.

The One Only is not a masterpiece of perfumery and many fragrances go in this direction. I would almost like to say that The Only One is the perfect dupe to Naomi Campbell´s 1. fragrance. The two are very similar. Because both are not "real" Gourmand´s but also have a clean powdery note.
Both are noble and in their way, sexy and racy.

The One Only, reveals lust and eroticism. One thinks of tongue kisses under the blanket, the aroma of the fragrance, while The Heat is over, the next song comes, this time from Janet Jackson with the title Janet And On And On. The voyage of discovery continues, the scent becomes more and more powdery vanilla-floral (thus not purely vanilla but nevertheless with flowery powdery notes).

I was positively surprised by The One Only. My atomizer with 10 ml will certainly accompany me a few times because the fragrance is intense and sillage. And before the Janet Jackson song ends...
"And this feeling goes on and on and on and on and on and on" .....

Girls' party at a coffee klatsch
Yesterday I went for a stroll in the city as part of a women's trio.

No, there was no running, but strolling, because the pacemaker's husband stayed at home.
So no sporty sprint insoles.

So we sneaked around the D&G booth, and reached for The Only One in the club.

Oh! A cozy coffee note surrounded us, plus delicious warm vanilla strudel.
That went well with our stroll mode.
The iris powders over the fragrance softly and comfortably, accompanied by a delicate tart violet.
A scent to settle down and chat at home.
We would have welcomed soft seating.
The patch is mild and also invites to linger.

The Only One appears relaxed and also has a relaxing effect.
He is inviting, takes his time - and grants this too.

Wait a minute - is his motto.

We did not like to get moving again - but even today I can still hear his cosy aura

New roommate turns into best friend
So, it happened again. Blind purchase. I was afraid I'd regret it again. I didn't really want to (yes yes...), but when I visited Flaconi on Wednesday a week ago, I couldn't go around it. A huge commercial with Emilia Clarke (whom I like soooo much) and next to her a beautiful bottle. Interest was immediately aroused, but it deterred me that it was another flanker from The One. With the original scent I have so my dear problems. Okay, crap, what now. I am an extremely open-minded person and like to give several chances before I finally give up. Hm ok, sounds very different from The One. Oh come on sch*eat it, just order. No sooner said than done. He has been living with me for a week now and is moulting into my daily companion.

For me an extremely pleasantly balanced fragrance between Sì passione and La nuit Tresor. The beginning is very fruity and sweet. Which makes me wonder, fruity, why? Where do you want the fruit? Is my nose playing a trick on me again? Well, anyway, there's something that smells like fruit. I was already asked what smells like jelly babies here... Um... I guess that's me... And yes, it is (unfortunately) so. The beginning is an army of jelly babies. Don't worry, doesn't take long and the coffee comes along and takes the fierce sweetness. The fragrance starts to develop pleasantly. It now appears grounded, but still remains slightly sweet-fruity, but now with a vanilla touch. Nothing screams here, there is no penetrating sweetness, everything stays in the background. In summary, The Only One smells like a fruity latte coffee.
A small disadvantage is that everything develops very closely. A murderous situation one looks for here in vain. But the scent is extremely persistent and lasts long, especially on clothes.

Portable for me at any time, suitable for every season and every weather.

I have no regrets!

A sensual cocoon
When I saw , a few days ago, this new fragrance on my favourite drugstore shelf, I couldn't resist to smell it;
first of all I was attracted by the elegant squared bottle and by the colour of this precious jus: an intense caramel.
so, I strayed it on the mouillette and on myself too and I felt a special sense of beauty and cocoon.
I was feeling in a warm and soft cloud very sensual.
First of all, a deep coffee smell arrived immediately to my nose covering the fresher opening notes I see now on the pyramid. Then, the powdery and classy touch of the iris heart appeared giving a sophisticated accent to this particular scent. But what remained for many hours on my skin was the patchouli- vanilla base: the patchouli is well balanced and round, oriental and not too earthy and the vanilla is sweet but not sweetish, giving that sense of "cocoon" to this scent. i imagined to wear this fragrance the next fall or winter, maybe sprayed on a warm and soft pashmina too, for a very longlasting pleasure. the sillage is good and this aspect could justify the quite high price. It's a very precious pleasure to wear by night too whenever you want to feel classy and sexy.

Great new fragrance
The video to the new fragrance with the actress Emilie Clarke is great, not only that she sings a great song and expresses her sexiness skillfully - I think she identifies well with the fragrance. The scent...yeah, how is it???? I like him very much with his unusual composition. Because I love violets, I was curious, but find that the soft violet goes down in the coffee intoxication. The fragrance takes a while to develop, then it becomes more moderate and has an interesting aura. The coffee is in the foreground, but also the patchouli and the vanilla you can smell well, patchouli always has a little wild in it, that fits well into it. For me it is a very pleasant and wearable scent, even during the day, it is not sweet but rather tempting. Fragrance lasts a good 6 hours. I think this fragrance will quickly find its followers and is perfect as an introduction for autumn. The men in the round have reacted very positively to the fragrance, it has something round, nothing is missing and even after many hours it still convinces with a beautiful and fine scent loop that follows. Even the next day, the blouse from the previous day smells very pleasantly like a cup of really good barista with a sensuously fruity and exciting flair. He could move in with me permanently, great business scent. Bottle is a beautiful hand flatterer and looks noble.
