Dolce & Gabbana The One 2014 Edition Eau De Parfum

Dolce & Gabbana brings a breath of fresh air to The One in 2014. With its structured clean lines, this limited edition gold flacon conjures the luxurious spirit of its contents.

Name: Dolce & Gabbana The One 2014 Edition Eau de Parfum
Price: RM 287 for 50 ml
Made in: UK

The Fragrance
The One feels like a gourmand because my untrained nose detects wisps of caramel during the opening stage. I know it is there even though it is not noted anywhere in the profile (as usual, my nose is able to conjure stuff from thin air). This rich Oriental Floral perfume skips over the florals in the heart, and straight away caresses with vanilla, amber and musk.

I wish the top notes lingered longer, because I would love to get a whiff of the delectable fruity notes. I guess my only moan has more to do with my skin chemistry rather than the perfume itself...

My mother really liked it when I spritzed it on her (she is openly coveting my bottle) and so do I, which makes me class The One as a perfume for all ages. You may want to keep it for casual evenings out or if you are heading to somewhere nice, seeing that it can be a little too overpowering on a day-to-day basis.

◆ Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Lychee, Peach
◆ Heart notes: Madonna Lily
◆ Base notes: Vanilla, Amber, Musk

The Flacon
This limited edition flacon makes me think of chunks of rectangular gold bars soldered together *sheepish smile* Is it horrible of me to find the normal packaging to be much cuter? That said, I do believe that Limited Edition is the way to go.

The reason is twofold, one: the all gold packaging is chic, and two: it is a collector's item, which means that once it is gone, it is truly gone. I may not appreciate it, however, I know of others who do, case in point, my mother. She hardly let The One out of her sight the whole time it was on loan.
