While many per­fumes trans­port you to a field of flow­ers, Dolce & Gab­bana’s The Only One will re­mind you of the gelato shops along the streets of Rome, with a few sur­prises along the way. First is the con­tin­ued use of Bri­tish ac­tress Emilia Clarke as the face. “Italy is so wo­ven into the brand, so for an English rose to take on this kind of role is quite fun,” says Clarke. Then there’s the scent’s un­ex­pected com­bi­na­tion of vi­o­let and cof­fee with a warm base of vanilla and patchouli to round out its rich­ness, which also hap­pens to be a co­in­ci­den­tal com­bi­na­tion for Clarke. “The scents that re­mind me of Italy are cof­fee and the in­side of a gela­te­ria,” she says. What’s not at all un­ex­pected is that The Only One is bold and emo­tional, not un­like Ital­ians them­selves, says Clarke. “When they feel some­thing good, they re­ally feel it. And they let you know.”
