Last Valentine's Day my husband and I (showing how similar we are, we've done this before!) went out and bought each other pretty much the same thing - he bought me Dolce & Gabbanna Rose the One Eau De Parfum, and I bought him Dolce & Gabbanna The One Men Sport Aftershave! So we're certainly a matching pair if nothing else.
I love D&G scents not for the designer name but for the reliability - I've never found one I didn't like and this is no exception.
Dolce & Gabbanna Rose the One Eau De Parfum comes boxed and cellophaned (you can also get it in gift sets with body wash and moisturiser) and is in a bottle very similar to the original D&G The One - that is a square glass bottle with a long rectangular lid. I'd say the Rose the One is shorter and wider. The actual Eau De parfum inside is also a different colour, the original Parfum is orange in colour and this is a soft pink in keeping with the name. I love the bottle, it's very modern, trendy and classy with no silly gimmicks, no celebrity name, no silly impractical lid. It looks very nice in my bathroom, and hey, that matters!
So, to the scent. Escentual states that Dolce & Gabbanna Rose the One Eau De Parfum has a'flirtatious rush of succulent pink grapefruit, mandarin and cassis'. I'd say this is pretty accurate. The pink grapefruit is certainly there, yet subtle, but don't be fooled into thinking mandarin means an orange scented parfum, it's much more flowery than that, but not cheap and overpowering. It's a fresh, floral scent perfect for summer, and appealing to all ages too.
The scent, probably because it is an Eau de Parfum, does last all day. Not overpoweringly so but when applied to the pulse points it's certainly still present 8 hours on (ie, a working day) and of course, lasts a whole party (important!!). I've had many a comment on it hours after I have applied it.
Overall I would highly recommend it as a gift (even to yourself!) as it's a lovely, feminine but adult, modern scent which looks great in the bathroom and is a real go-to perfume for any occasion. I wear it regularly and love it. I'll happily give Dolce & Gabbanna Rose the One Eau De Parfum 5 stars out of 5. A lovely scent from a trusted brand.
Dolce and Gabbana gives its smoulderingly sensual The One scent a rose twiSt. Destined to become a floral classic the completely feminine yet effortlessly sexy signature is perfectly captured in Scarlett Johansson the face of the fragrance / Top notes pink grapefruit mandarin and cassis; Middle notes Bulgarian rose peony lily and lychee; Base notes vanilla musk and amber /
