Hello! I know, I know – I can hear the magnitude of the raising of your eyebrow from where I’m sitting! I went through a weird phase just before Christmas where I was obsessed with One Direction. No, I’m not too sure how it happened either! Anywho, my mum bought me the One Direction Our Moment Eau de Parfum for Christmas after I dropped several heavy hints about wanting it. It’s hard to believe I’m 21 soon isn’t it?!
One Direction Our Moment Eau de Parfum
One Direction’s debut fragrance Our Moment is both inspired by and dedicated to their fans.
I got over the obsession with One Direction as quickly as I became obsessed, and in hindsight I feel a little silly *unfollows Harry Styles on Instagram*. Even though the obsession has gone I have still been using this perfume.
If you were to imagine the One Direction perfume without smelling it, you would probably imagine a sickly sweet fragrance that was capable of rotting teeth and turning the stomach inside out. I actually think the perfume is quite musky; it actually has quite the mature scent. I’m quite surprised to be honest as let’s face it, the One Direction fanbase is quite young and you wouldn’t expect them to wear a scent like this. Before anyone starts getting defensive, my 7 year old cousin also received this for Christmas! (She too got over her obsession). There is still an element of sweetness to it but I think it is quite balanced. My only complaint about the actual fragrance is that it can get a bit much if you wear it every day like I did originally. I might use it everyday for a while, and then have a break from it or I will use it once every two days.
I have to say that I’m not the biggest fan of the bottle. I don’t like the weird netting on the lid at all and I am constantly worried about dropping the bottle and smashing it. The lid goes on pretty tight on to the bottle and it does require some strength to pull it off – sometimes this can put me off wearing it if I’m feeling particularly lazy that day.
Even though it’s a nice scent, it’s not my favourite scent in the world. For me, this isn’t a perfume that will be my signature scent nor will it be a perfume I repurchase in the future.
