Dolce & Gabbana The One Review

Dolce & Gabbana The One Review

Dolce & Gabbana The One Review

When I receive a fragrance, I immediately open the box for an olfactory sampling.  The images that pop into my mind instantly are what I share here with you, my dear readers.  I was recently sent Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Toilette, and a very vivid image popped into my mind the instant I sampled it.  The scene was an empty tarmac as the sun sets in a flash of red and orange.  A woman arrives in a limousine, and steps out with a sense of purpose.  Adorned with diamonds and flanked by designer luggage, she boards the plane with a confident stride.  That’s the image that pops into my mind when I first sampled Dolce & Gabbana The One:  Modern luxury, worn by a woman in a power position.

Top notes in Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Toilette include Bergamot, Mandarin, Velvet Lychee, and White Peach.  Heart notes include Madonna Lily, Ylang, Orange Flower, and Broom.  Dry down notes include Vetiver Oil, Vanilla, Amber, and Musk.  Overall the scent strikes me as a floral, but not overwhelmingly so.  The scent is modern with a hint of feminine sweetness.

Retail price is $60 for a 1 fl. oz., $78 for a 1.6 fl. oz., and $100 3.3 fl. oz. Eau de Toilette Spray.

Retailers include Macys, Ulta, Bloomingdales, and Amazon.

MAC Liptensity Lipsticks

Do you remember when I told you all about the new MAC Liptensity Lipstick collection and showed you MAC Liptensity swatches in every available shade?  That was about one year ago.  I’m not going to lie to you, photographing and sampling the lipsticks from that MAC launch was extremely fun.  To refresh your memory a bit about the product, the Liptensity formula boasts an incredibly high-pigment color named “High-Frequency Tetrachromatic”.  The color is, in a word, “wow”.

Good news for MAC-lovers everywhere!  MAC Liptensity in new shades have hit counters! Nine new shades of fabulous have been added to the collection, and some old favorites are being re-introduced to really give you the ultimate in selection!  This time, the collection is coming to the party with a date.  Eighteen shades of Liptensity Lip Pencil have also been launched!
