Scent of the Day : The One Gentleman by Dolce & Gabbana

Today it's time to spend some time with the one... the one gentleman ! As some of you remember I purchased this bottle at duty free while leaving Canada. This is actually my first real wearing of this fragrance and my first initial thoughts. Wearing this today seems like I might not like this as much as I liked the original. The original had it faults but the faults was not on the scent but much more the longevity issues. This one gives me a much different smell and it actually smells at first glance nothing like the original. I am feeling lots of different things with this one , without looking at the note breakdown I get some sort a fruit, some lavender, perhaps pepper and woods at first glance. It seems to be light just like it's counterpart and this could be it's downfall. This might grow on me as far the smell goes but I might come out disappointed with again another new D&G release.


  1. Smells like bubblegum.

  2. Marc ..

    In your opinion , what is the best fragrance you think that has the feeling of the ocean or the beach ?

    When I mean the best .. I mean your #1 niche .. :)

    and have you ever found a perfume for men that smells green mango ? if you don't know what is smells like try pick a mango one day in the grocery store and just smell it .. its unbelievable !

  3. If you want a great ocean/beach fragrance, check out Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts. Not a niche, but really has a beachy summer vibe with lime and tequila notes among others. Longevity isn't great, but wearing it really makes you feel like you're at a tropical beach.

  4. Longevity is very important to me specially for the summer and that's why I asked for a niche fragrance . Honestly I am confused between Wall Street by Bond No 9 and Creed`s Erolfa as an ocean scent which it seems that is different from a beach scent

    I have just found that Fire Island by Bond No 9 has been described by Marc as a beach in a bottle so I think we are done with the beach scent and just left with the ocean scent to choose from .. is it again Bond No 9 will win it or again Creed this time hits the jackpots ?
