Sometimes I like this one more than other times. To me, it smells like a nondescript honeyed fruits and floral with a somewhat vanilla like base. It’s strange, I can’t really pick out anything that I truly recognize… it’s more like a memory or a dream or an impression of things I remember…. Kind of like a picture obscured by a rainy window. You can kind of make out what it’s supposed to be, but you aren’t entirely sure of yourself. And it that way, it smells pleasant enough, but I wouldn’t say it’s anything to write home about. It is sweet, but not as sweet as some others in this line. I’d have to say that my favorite so far in this line is “The Only One Intense”… the one in the black bottle. I’d say that this one is skippable. I don’t dislike it, but I also don’t think I’d repurchase it. I do seldom reach for it, and only when I want something vaguely sweet.

Even though I find it rather cloying at first - and it has some weird off notes - The One is just about passable. A classically styled floriental, it reminds me of the old Ivoire, and that's no bad thing.
If that were the whole story this would probably get a neutral - because the drydown is sort of ok, but that isn't the whole story.
Along with its peaches and cream, The One uses dodgy molecules for its muguet / lily note, Lyral (already banned) and Lilial (banned from March 2022).
My advice would be avoid this and try something else instead - like Ivoire.

A pleasant mix: fruity initially and then floral.
Peach and lychee are present very obviously in the opening blast, touch up with a bit of bergamot for brightness. The peach is sweet and ripe, with the bergamot, together with hesperidic whiffs, preventing it from being overly cloying.

The drydown develops impressions of jasmine and lily-of-the-valley, with touches of iris in the background. The initial fruitiness spills over into the floral heart notes.

So far this has been a pleasant, albeit neither a very original nor an overly exciting experience. The base, in contrast to the earlier phases, is very disappointing with its flat and dull attempts at the usual attempts to create the usual mix of white musks, vanilla and a hint of vetiver.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

The earlier stages of this spring creation are pleasant, but the rest is a generic and overly synthetic disappointment. Overall in the middle range. 2.75/5.

Fruity floral. I smell peaches and vanilla. Dry-down is peachy floral powder. Nothing to make it stand out.

I wish it stayed with this gorgeous opening of fruit, vanilla and musk. Then it goes very floral. It stays beautiful, but I really loved the opening. Worth trying. A classic. Sillage and longevity are good on the EDP.
