Dolce & Gabbana - the one

Hello everyone!

I'm sorry for posting yet another perfume review but I want to post at least one blog post every day and my ghd air post isn't quite ready! However you can expect the ghd air review tomorrow but for now it's another perfume.

So I received 'Dolce & Gabanna - the one', which was released in 2008, as a Christmas present from my parents in 2012 after I said I liked it out shopping with my mum.  She bought me the gift set that came in a beautiful box that had a gold lid with 'Dolce & Gabbana, the one' written across the top which I loved!  It also comes with a body lotion which I have yet to try!

As for the design of the bottle, I like the gold but I don't think the bottle is feminine enough considering that's what it is supposed to portray.  For the name and the scent I think the bottle should have been delicate and not bold.

I have the 30ml size bottle and considering I only wear it every now and then because it's my special one, it hasn't really lasted too long.  As you can see I only have about a third of the bottle left and have had it for six months.

The scent is strong and noticeable at first but does not linger long so I always feel like I'm topping up which probably relates to why it's so empty over a short period of time.

However to me it's one of my favourite ever scents! I just smell it and like melt.  It's quite a fruity scent; similar to peaches with hints of orange but also with notes of amber, vanilla and musk.  I really recommend trying this perfume.

The gift set is most often the same price as the standard 30ml bottle.  It's RRP is £41.00 but you can buy it buy clicking here from The Perfume Shop for £39.99.  It is a lot of money for an everyday scent but I think it's lovely as a special occasion scent.

See you in the next post!
