Fragrance Review - Dolce & Gabbana The One EDP

I’ve had Dolce & Gabbana ‘The One’ on my wishlist for ages, so I was super chuffed to unwrap this bottle as a Christmas present from Mum and Dad a few weeks ago. What’s even better is that this is the newer, fancier, more concentrated EDP version, which, in the words of Dolce & Gabbana offers “a deeper fragrance experience for the perfume connoisseur. Masculine and magnetic, this highly intense scent is a statement of charisma and sophistication.”

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been looking to increase the number of darker fragrances that are more suitable for the winter months, as well as some slightly more masculine vibes for evenings all year round. Most of my fragrance history has consisted of light citrussy notes, and whilst I still love those fresher fragrances, I want to wear scents that are more situationally appropriate.

What I’m Learning About This Month

I always think it’s important to have a curious mind. Anyone that knows me has probably been bored by my endless supply of largely useless facts and trivia. It pains me to say it, but I’m ‘that guy’ 🤦🏻‍♂️.

I love learning, it’s definitely my ‘thing’. I don’t really like studying or being tested in a formal context, but learning, hearing about, and seeing how things work makes me happy. Last year, my big thing was learning about how the human body works in relation to nutrition, which led me on to learning about hormones and the endocrine system. A while back I learned about latte art and milk foam. I really like etymology and learning about the history of words, and how they came to be. I think it’s important to know something about everything. I’m by no means an expert on any of this stuff... more of an amateur enthusiast 😂
