Summer is such a difficult time to wear fragrance I find.
What smells beautiful when you first test it can quickly turn sickly with the heat which is horrendous when travveling - even worse when it is someone else's choice of fragrance that leaves you feeling squeamish! A lot of scents really do leave me feeling queasy if it is warm outside so more often than not I tend to keep my perfume collection for night wear which leads me to Dolce and Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum my current evening choice.
I have worn Dolce and Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum all week come night fall to dinners, meetings and everything in between. It is a deep floral scent that seems to please both men and women if the compliments I have received are anything to go by. It is a really strong fragrance and one that lingers on both the skin and clothing so if you struggle with fragrance lasting power this is well worth testing on that aspect alone.
Now on to the notes, the element I forever struggle with. Don't you find it so difficult describing a scent, I know I do. Anyway this is certainly a floral fragrance - almost a fruity floral but very, deep and strong. It is warm and almost familar. Notes include mandarin, peach jasmine, vanilla, amber and musk, in my opinion you can not detect the musk but rather the vanilla and jasmine dominate with the odd fruity note creeping through now and then. I do think this would be a little too intense for most for day wear but recommned testing out Dolce and Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum if you are on the lookout for an evening scent that is truly beautiful yet long lasting.
