Rose The One Perfume by D & G Review

I always have a hard time choosing the right perfume for me. The only perfume I know both my husband and I love is Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue. Although, I must say my favourite fragrance that he wears has got to be Chanel. It is a very rich masculine fragrance, Chanel Bleu Eau de Toilette is hard to top. Nonetheless, there are times when I feel like wearing a different perfume. You know, depending on my mood. I don’t want to smell the same thing every time so I was on a hunt for a good perfume alternative to my D & G Light Blue.

Imagine how overwhelmed I got when I received so many suggestions! I was able to sniff some of those on the list at the mall. One perfume that somehow made me think it would be a good alternative for me is Rose The One by D & G. So I was glad to have received a 2.5oz bottle for review.

D & G Rose The One

Dolce & Gabbana’s Rose The One perfume was first introduced in 2009.

It has the fragrance notes of the following: Madonna lily, pink grapefruit, blackcurrant, lily of the valley, sandalwood, litchi, peony, ambrette seed, musk, vanilla, mandarin, rose.

I’ve been using Rose The One for about a week now and I like it. The first time I smelled it, it really reminded me of roses. Since I generally don’t like smelling flowers, I was surprised that I kept on sniffing my wrist where I sprayed it.

I think I love the smell of the middle and base notes of Rose The One better than the top notes. The middle and base notes are more floral in their scent thus giving you a younger and fresher feel. It also has some hints of a fruity smell but I think the floral scent is more dominant for me.

Would I recommend this to you? If you like fresh floral and fruity scents, then definitely yes! Rose The One lives up to its name. 🙂

Rose The One Perfume by D & G Review — 85 Comments

  1. Sounds lovely actually. I have used the same two perfumes (Anias Anias and Pleasure) for years and years and still love them both. I find it hard to use another perfume since I’m so particular about them.

  2. The flowers scents for the D & G fragrance sounds very appealing to me – especially the Lily of the Valley – I am going to search for a sample on eBay to try this out! Thanks for the share.

  3. I like Light Blue. I really love a light citrus scent. I usually wear Clinique Happy or Happy Heart. I’m always willing to try a new fragrance.

  4. I have a hard time finding a good (and affordable) perfume. Recently discovered via free sample Beckman. Got a huge bottle for $20. In love. Wearing it every day right now. Had been wearing the same two perfumes for several years.

  5. I’ve really been wanting to try a new perfume! I’ve been using Burberry Body and I love it but I want to mix it up every once in a while!

  6. That sounds like a wonderful fragrance. I don’t like strong breath taking scents. This may be one of my “to try” fragrances… To me it seems it might be relaxing..

  7. It’s funny that your alternative scent hunt led you back to the d&G counter… I love your description of this and am wondering if the sandlewood and vanilla tame the flowery level of this scent? I will take time to find a sample the next time I’m passing a counter.

  9. I have the same problem.I’m stuck on a perfume that I love and can’t find another one that I like as much.I do have to say that the Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue sounds very appealing.I wish you good luck in your search though.

  10. I love Dolce & Gabbana! I use to wear the red box perfume of theirs all the time. I really love Pour Femme now, but I definitely would love to try this!

  11. It can be hard to find florals that are not overpowering and a little more youthful. This may fit the bill for me. I’ll have to check it out next time I’m at the mall.

  12. I do the same thing when trying a new perfume. I walk around sniffing my wrist until I decide if I like it. Fragrance does change as it’s worn.I love Light Blue. I’d probably like thos.

  13. I’ll have to look for this so I can see how it smells. It sounds really good though. I need to check out some new scents that are now out to see if I like any of them. I’m almost out of fragrances and need some new ones.

  14. I agree that I don’t usually like floral tones, especially rose as it makes me think of an “old woman” scent! Don’t get me wrong ~ nothing wrong with that, makes me think of my grandmother whom I adore. Just never smells good on me.

  15. Boy I went to the site and they sure have a lot of good perfumes. Thanks for the site I will be interest in returning to buy some they have my favorite which is not easy to find

  16. This perfume sounds like a perfume that I would love to try! I have a hard time finding the right perfume for me, and I like the Rose the one scents! Sounds like a scent that is not overpowering and lasts all day!

  17. I don’t know if I’d like such a combination of notes. I prefer cleaner scents.Thant’s why I love samples. Sometimes you just have to try it on.

  18. I will have too say great review. It looks like a great perfume too try with all it has in it. Love rose scent along with other scents. Thanks

  19. It sounds so delicious – how lucky that you are able to review such a wonderful perfume, you have done it justice — who does not love the scent of roses?

  20. I generally don’t like floral scents but since this one adds in earthy tones like sandalwood I would like to try it. Thank you for an option I would not have chosen to even test out before. Great prices at!

  21. I love sampling new scents…a reason why I stay out of Macy’s lol. I probably own over 20 different perfumes. This was sounds great…off to Macy’s I go this weekend.

  22. I would love to try this perfume! It sounds like the scent would be so nice to wear. I have not heard of this scent, but I like all the ingredients.

  23. My favorite perfumes are the ones made by D&G!!!! I dont think I would like the Rose one because I really dont like the flowery scents. But the Blue sounds awesome!!

  24. This sounds great, so I will try it on in the mall. I love perfume, but it is so hard to find the right one for me. You are so lucky to receive a bottle to review, as words could never describe if you will like a scent or not.

  25. I love fruity smells. But the only fruity smells are body sprays and they just seem like a teenager thing. This sounds like something I’d like to try out (:

  26. Loved your review. I also love the ingredients in Rose The One. I’m definitely going to sample this when I get to Macy’s. 🙂
    I too need a new perfume and would try this one.

  27. The “Rose” part kind of scares me a bit because I hate perfume,powder or anything of that sort that smells like roses. But this perfume doesn’t sound like it has a rose smell to it, so I would give it a try.
