The Dolce&Gabbana house launched The One Man beginning of March 2008, after a successful run of The One for women.
Stefano Gabbana a very masculine fragrance, and a very classic one. A classic men’s fragrance that would last for years and be the type of scent that women adore.
Gabbana creator’s wanted to create a woody-oriental composition. The fragrance opens with sparkling notes of bergamot, coriander and basil, the middle motes bring in cardamom, ginger and neroli, while the base notes createa very masculine cedar scent along with ambergris and tobacco.
The model and actor Matthew McConaughey is the face of the fragrance and has continued on to being the face of The One Gentleman and The One Edp. When it comes to the choice of the model, the Dolce&Gabbana designers said that they wanted to have the sexiest man on the planet. Gabbana added that this is the first time that a model is fully clothed in their men’s fragrance campaigns.
The One is exactly what D&G set out to accomplish. It’s masculine, it’s sexy, it grabs the attention of any women that comes within distance of it. It’s a 8/10 fragrance and the only reason it doesn’t receive the full 10/10 is due to longevity issues which all D&G fragrances seem to have issue with. It’s a blind buy safe fragrance. Highly recommended for date night or colder winter nights. Wouldn’t recommend for the office setting.
