One Direction Our Moment Eau de Parfum

Posted in Beauty

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?!

They say:

One Direction’s debut fragrance Our Moment is both inspired by and dedicated to their fans.

The 1D Fragrance
The sparkling, juicy and feminine fragrance is made up of splashes of fresh fruit and seasonal flowers infused with undertones of warm musk. The pink grapefruit, wild berries and redcurrants, combined with the delicacy of jasmine petals, and frangipani with the dry woody tones of musk and patchouli leave an enticing and playful scent on the skin.
The bottle’s intricate crown lid is feminine and sleek and houses a stunning mesh ‘pink flower’ that hints to its floral notes.

I say:

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.

Would you try the One Direction fragrance?

    I’m with you – it has quite a mature scent to it. (I don’t own but I have tried it)
    But I would never get it just due to the fact that it’s one direction *shudders* and the bottle is horrible haha!

    I was tempted to have a sniff of this in Boots a few weeks back as I’d heard a few good things about it but I just couldn’t bring myself to pick up a bottle with One Direction on it. Plus if I liked it I know the netting on the top would wind me up every time I used it, it’s so tacky!

      It is really tacky! I think the bottle could have been a lot better designed. x

    I’d never have thought to try this, but it actually sounds pretty good!

      I’d definitely give it a smell next time you’re near a perfume counter :) x

    I actually have this fragrance (got it for Christmas as well) and when it came out I was like “Naawh, I don’t want that” but after having a sniff at my local drugstore I was surprised! I agree with you, I don’t wear it every day either and the bottle couldn’t have been worse (especially the lid, what even is that?!) but it’s still lovely x

      It is, I was surprised and a little embarrassed by how much I wanted it! x
