First, I read in January that Dolce&Gabbana was preparing a new addition to their masculine fragrance line called The One Sport and I enjoyed the bottle. Second, I saw the video commercial and I thought that the marketing campaign fronted by model Adam Senn and evoking the ancient values of competition (a reference to the upcoming Olympic Games!) was a success. And finally, this Saturday I had the opportunity to sniff the new scent from Dolce&Gabbana.
The One Sport is a flaker to 2008’s The One for Men and belongs to the woody aromatic olfactory group. Advertised on the official website with the tagline “Sport is an equilibrium of mind and body”, this fragrance brings an olfactory balance to your active life. The One sport represents the type of clean, bracing fragrance that provides the needed energy for your everyday activities, whether or not these involve sports or not.
The beginning of the scent is a blend of rosemary and water notes that confer The One Sport a sensation of Mediterranean aroma. After approximately 30 minutes you are still able to sense the invigorating facet however the heart features notes of sequoia wood and cardamom. For the final part, the scent of patchouli was combined with musk in order to assemble a sensual and elegant trail.
As a fragrance that “celebrates the deepest and most genuine values of sport and life” The One Sport sports a design that evokes clarity and purity. The rectangular shape of the bottle was borrowed from the previous versions of The One, however this time the transparent bottle reveals a colorless liquid, while being completed by the rose hue present in the fragrance name and the spray pump. Overall, The One Sport is the third fragrance that I consider interesting this year (after Kokorico and Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme) and hence earns a spot in my “to buy” list.
