Dolce & Vita for the nose
Tangerine, green apple, orange blossom... Neroli! ... as expected, this could be almost fruity and bombastic in the nose - but far from it.

"D&G" is absolutely and in no way provided for in any of my prey schemes (*pssst*- is not even on a self-extended waiting list - no matter what it should be about).
Sure, they have beautiful, sometimes very chic things in terms of fashion and accessories, for example, but I only take note of that so casually, or you amuse yourself about the always strikingly thickly applied, gold emblazoned label, which you encounter in different forms on some utensils from time to time on the street That's how you, better woman, always imagine "Dolce Vita", opulent, pompous, rich, shrill, colourful, glittering, shiny, exaggerated, ... and then this:

The Only One Intense contradicts all these characteristics. It starts off slightly fruity, but this is rather subdued, not fruity fresh. It is warm from the start, sweetly warm, but not summery warm, it is cuddly warm. In this respect, it is perfect for the current season and I can well imagine that it is well dosed! It is just as well wearable on elegant or sensual warm summer nights ... and it is sensual enough for that The rather warm heart and base notes hold the reins invisibly from the start, counteracting the fruity notes, but after a while they take over the regime completely. To do justice to the character of the perfume, they should do so - and exactly this calculation, this mix, works out.

The Only One Intense is a complete surprise. It fascinates, has a magical effect, is addictive, because again and again I catch myself putting sprayed wrists or clothes on my nose - wonderful, divine well-being for the nose, a different kind of Dolce Vita, one, even on grey days.

As such a flowery, as it is already read in the description of the fragrance above, I do not feel it so much, but subliminally creamy and slightly powdery, which rounds off the previously described characteristics once again beautifully.
And: it holds ... and holds ... and holds - perfectly, without sticking!
This certain "understatement" is also embodied and underlined by the rather plain bottle. Not very pompous despite the gold lettering and an equally pompous ring discreetly on the cap. The latter is also made of glass, not plastic, and thus underlines the value of the bottle, which - even if only subliminally - contributes to the overall impression.

No no, The Only One Intense has something, for sure - and equipped with it the grey, stormy season can come quietly!

A warm companion - for me for the summer
So first of all: I think I'm almost alone with my opinion on a wide floor. But first I would like to explain how I came to this fragrance.

My favorite Youtuber Paulina Schar has featured this scent in her videos up and down. In both warm and sensual and date scents, this beautiful black bottle was always there. Since she and I have similar "smells", I had to order this scent. Even though it was very dangerous to just blindly hit it - because I'm not really a neroli fan, unfortunately. But what else is left in the current situation also not. But well. No sooner said than done - two days later it arrived. With joyful expectation I unpacked the fragrance, sniffed it and WOW - what I get at first is a strong coconut and vanilla, which plays quite happily with the floral notes. A fresh fruitiness is delivered at the start by the apple, mandarin and just very subtly the scent of neroli. After the first couple of minutes, the fresh notes drop down a bit and you're left with an incredibly harmonious blend of florals, coconut and vanilla that feels so cozy and creamy that you can't help but feel good about the scent. For me, it also has a total oriental EInschlag because of the vanilla-apple-coconut combo.

Furthermore, he shines with a very good durability and a pleasant sillage, but not slaying, but is still present.

However, when I look at the categorization of the community, that the fragrance is rather put in the winter and autumn, I fall totally out of line.

I fundamentally imagine this fragrance to be good in all seasons and yes, everyone is right that it suits the cool seasons very well as it is warm, heavy and creamy.
However, when I close my eyes and sniff the scent, it immediately transports me to a balmy summer evening at a restaurant, beach or boardwalk with a glass of Hugo. Due to the for me oriental impact and the dominant coconut, it just belongs for me quite clearly in my go-to summer fragrances for the evening.

Possibly someone understands my slightly different enthusiasm for the fragrance.

Even now I wear it with pleasure and can hardly wait to make my ideas of the fragrance come true in the summer

The really last, really best only one ;-)
One thing first: This is the only fragrance from the "Only One" series that I have tested so far. I actually swore not to test any of them ever, because I don't like the way fragrances are exploited and how one version after another of a fragrance with the same name is thrown on the market. After everything I've read about the "Ones" so far, the different versions probably don't resemble each other very much.
To the actual topic: I am really enthusiastic about this fragrance! Vanilla, neroli and jasmine unite harmoniously, the scent is neither too sweet nor too penetrating, but at the same time very good durability and silage. Has with me clear potential for the signature scent! I even think it goes very much in a harsh direction of modern men's fragrances, some of which are quite sweet. Something reminds me of J'ose Von Eisenberg. Maybe because of the masculine appearance.
I don't smell coconut, but if it was missing, then something would probably be missing :-)
So far only tested on clothing, I am almost sure that it will become even softer and sweeter on the skin with time.
Am in love!

"Sensuality to the power of three"
Spray, and then take a deep breath and you dive into very dark, almost carnal sensuality. This directly captures you and transports our senses on a journey into oriental fragrances. Slow sensual movements, glances under long eyelashes that send out their fervent desires, tender touches that lure us. What else are we waiting for??.Flattering vanilla kisses the fine woods, coconut entices with a delicious promise of fruit and above all the very aphrodisiac jasmine. After about 30 minutes everything has settled and what remains is an hour-long caress which my environment also perceives. Careful I just say- you don't know what can happen with a fragrance like that! It lasts very long, 8-10 hours and will be a "treasure" for many people, I am convinced. Great the black packaging that already promises to..... ( everyone should answer for himself ). Prices are as usual for this brand. I liked it right away and moved in !

"I am not like the others..."
Yes, yes, I would have liked to believe that! The first sprayer was a wave of horniness that came over me. I thought, "Oh, how sexy is this guy?" Of course I had to add a bottle to my collection! Arrived at home I put on the full body spray and went for a walk in the woods...so I always test my "new ones". After an active hour most of them show their true face ...aha suddenly the Firstlove veil disappeared and I found parallels ...I already have that I don't really need that again !

This flanker in the drydown reminds me a lot of Rouge Malachite and Alien Fusion. Well it's not bad it's not used before ;)

It coul d be a sexy gem but the coconut note, too sweetish, makes it very unbalanced and "too much".Anyway, strong sillage. A winter scent
