Dolce and Gabbana Rose The One

The Italian luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana has always been one that has intrigued me, particularly when it has come to their fragrances. Recently I was offered the opportunity to try one of their fragrances courtesy of Fragrance Direct, which is an online website that sells a range of beauty products including fragrance, make up and skincare. 














































Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One* at first glance is a truly beautiful fragrance, to me it looks so pretty and feminine. The rose gold detail of the lid and text adds that extra bit of femininity to the packaging, gaining instant brownie points from me as I'm easily persuaded by something that looks nice. The glass bottle itself is really quite thick and heavy making it feel rather expensive in my opinion. The actual fragrance has a slight pink tone to it within the bottle which again is a lovely addition. I have to say that the presentation of the whole product is really quite special.

The initial scent of this is a mix between citrus and floral as there is definitely a hint of grapefruit present at first with it quickly adapting on the skin into something much more floral; I really notice the rose scent coming forward after less than a few minutes. After a little while the fragrance does settle down on the skin quite a lot with hints of vanilla becoming more prominent. 

I would say that this fragrance is perfect if you're looking for something light and floral without being too overpowering. As we head into autumn I doubt I will use it too much as I want something deeper for these colder months, something like Stella, however, I know that this will be coming back out rather rapidly as we hit the beginning of next spring.

Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One is available from Fragrance Direct in a 30ml, 50ml and 75ml EDP Spray.

Top Notes: Blackcurrant, Pink Grapefruit, Mandarin.
Heart Notes: Peony, Madonna Lily, Lychee, Bulgarian Rose.
Base Notes: Ambrette Seed, Sandalwood, Musk, Vanilla.




*PR Sample. This product was kindly sent to me for consideration.

  2. I used to have the regular The One and I did enjoy it although it is a little bit too powdery with too much rose for me. D&G scents are lovely! Xx

  3. I love the bottle! I'm weird with rose scents, some I love and some I hate, so I think I'd have to smell this to know whether I'd like it. The vanilla base sounds lovely, though :)

  12. I have the original D&G The One, and it's one of my favourites- I tried this but I didn't like it, but I don't like Rose scents so that's probably why haha! x
