When I was in Sweden, I was more into fragrances than makeup so I ended up with plenty of high-end perfumes while I stayed there. Dolce & Gabbana was the first ever brand that I recognized for their awesome fragrances. And I made it a mission to try out all of their perfumes! One of my favourite perfumes of all time, Light Blue, is from the brand itself.
Dolce & Gabbana release their fragrances under two names – Dolce & Gabbana and D&G.
Light Blue, The One, Rose the One, Sicily etc. come under Dolce & Gabbana perfumes while the anthology collection with La Lune, L’Amoureux etc. come labelled as D&G.
Dolce & Gabbana The One collection:
The Dolce and Gabbana The One collections contained three 10 ml roll-on perfumes:
- The One (Eau de Parfum)
- L’eau The One (Eau de Toilette)
- Rose The One (Eau de Parfum)
The set also had a velvet pouch that you can use to carry the fragrance pen (roll-on perfume) with me.
Dolce & Gabbana fragrances are pricey but after my experience with the Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue perfume, I wanted to try more. I had a limited amount of money on a particular day when I was roaming around in the åhlens city (mall) in Stockholm Central, when I saw a set of three The One perfumes which cost just as much as the amount of money I had in my pocket. There were no testers and I was yet to have lunch. So, I made a choice to buy the perfume set solely because they were from the brand and go back home to eat (dramatic!)
Till then I was not aware of vials or solid perfumes (year 2010) so I did not pay attention to the packaging, I just came back home and opened the packaging, they were vials. I was a little disappointed but then convinced myself that I will use them a lot – They are travel-friendly. There was also a velvet pouch to carry them around.
It’s been 3 years almost and I am yet to use even 20% of any of them! So anyway. Fragrance-wise, I am not a huge fan of rose scents (even though I somehow end up with rose-scented products), I would never have bought Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One (EdP). I was not a huge fan of Dolce Gabbana l’eau The One (EdT) either considering the price and scent but I absolutely loved Dolce & Gabbana The One (EdP).
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is my favorite perfume ever. It was also the first high-end perfume as a gift from my husband. In fact it was the first thing he bought without consulting with me and I loved it. Whenever I tease him for choosing things for me, he always reminds me that he got a good perfume for me which became my ultimate favorite. So Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue will always hold a special place in my heart and I will just use the fragrances in The One collection and may not even remember them later on.
Rating – 3.5/5
Recommend – Maybe
I like the lasting power of all of the Dolce & Gabbana perfumes and I think the packaging is classy. And I think this set would make a good gift but vials are not meant for me. So in my opinion, I wasted a chance to buy The One full 30ml bottle because that is the only fragrance I really liked from this collection.
