Exploring Dolce & Gabbana - The One
Dolce & Gabbana have released a number of sultry, glamorous and sophisticated scents over the years for both men and women. However, their most distinctive fragrances are The One and The One for Men which first became available for purchase in 2006 and 2008. Despite being released over a decade ago, the luxurious brand has created a variety of inventive and fresh campaigns that have kept these unique perfumes in demand.
A Classic Men's Fragrance
The One for Men has an extra dose of warmth to it than their previous male fragrances, with a mouth-watering concoction of grapefruit, coriander, basil as well as cardamom and ginger. It is then completed with a deep note of cedar wood, ambergris and tobacco, to create a woody-oriental masterpiece.
Stefano Gabbana has previously described it as: “not a banal classic but a classic men’s fragrance that would last for years and be the type of scent that women adore.”
An Alluring Perfume For Exceptional Women
The female version, The One, is known for being an alluring perfume designed for an exceptional woman who instantly has all eyes on her wherever she goes. This fragrance opens with fresh top notes of mandarin, bergamot, lychee and juicy peach which are followed by notes of the Madonna lily and is then completed with a sensual base of rich vanilla, amber and smooth musky notes.
The Sexiest Man On The Planet
In 2010, the infamous movie star, Matthew McConaughey became attached to The One universe as the designers disclosed that they wanted ‘the sexiest man on the planet’ to represent them. Three years later, the legendary A-lister appeared alongside the Hollywood beauty, Scarlet Johansson, in a mini love story for a show-stopping commercial for The One and The One for Men. The black and white advert, titled ‘Street of Dreams’, was directed by Martin Scorsese and featured the two actors playing ex-lovers on the streets of New York. It exuded elegance and seduction and reflected the idea that anybody can embody this with just a spritz of the luxurious fragrance.
A Game Of Thrones Collaboration
Dolce and Gabbana have themselves described The One for Men as ‘masculine and magnetic’ and that the intense fragrance is a ‘statement of charisma and sophistication’. The designers have also defined the female version as ‘joyful, spontaneous, and full of life’. This was definitely projected in their 2017 campaign, which featured two of the most talked about celebrities – Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington. The two adverts saw the famous faces walk through the bustling streets of Naples, Italy, dancing with street artists, sampling traditional food while conveying happiness and celebrating the charm of Italian culture. This radiated a much lighter and cheerful representation for both of the timeless scents.
With fans of Game of Thrones going through a torturous wait for the final series of the much-loved TV programme, it gave them another glimmer of their favourite stars before they reprise their roles of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow. This commercial also gave everybody a chance to embody the fresh, charismatic and energetic depiction of the actors by purchasing the delicious perfumes.
A Power Couple
These ‘his and hers’ fragrances are perfect for a power couple to sport for a romantic night out on the town or for going on adventures together. These scents are bound to draw attention to you and help you feel confident, elegant as well as fiercely impulsive and fun to ensure you create unforgettable memories that you can cherish forever.
