Review | Our Moment One Direction Perfume





Our Moment Perfume by One Direction £39 for 100ml gift set

There was no way that I wasn't going to buy this! It's like the two of my favourite things combined to make something that for me was too much to ignore and not buy. Our Moment is the debut fragrance from One Direction and is everything that a typical 1D fan is going to want and more. The fragrance is inspired by the fans and 1D were apparently involved with all parts of creating the fragrance to designing the packaging.

I'm undecided on the bottle, most of me loves it but a tiny part of me knows its a bit tacky, the fan girl inside of me is taking over on this one though! I like that the perfume is pink, keeping with the whole theme of the fragrance. I do think the packaging is perfect for a 1D fan, the images of each member on the box and the little note inside from the band with printed signatures is a nice touch too. It's probably sad how happy the whole thing makes me!

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.

It's definitely very young and sweet, lots of floral notes and a very feminine feel. I personally love it as I am a fan of sweet scents. It's more of a spring/summer fragrance and is not too overpowering. Unfortunately the lasting power is pretty rubbish. After a couple of hours I can no longer notice it that much. It's a shame as I really love the fragrance, I've been sticking to wearing this when I'm only going to be out for a few hours, it definitely won't last the day.

Are you a 1D fan? Have you tried Our Moment?
Our Moment 100ml is currently avaliable in a gift set here for £39 with a body lotion, shower gel and a rollerball.

  1. I hate the little material bit, it's so tacky! Apart from that though it looks quite nice.

  3. My wee cousin is obsessed with 1D so we got her this for Christmas. I thibk the packaging does look a bit cheap but the audience they are targetting they are obviously trying to make it as girly and princessy as they can.

    1. Definitely, they have completely matched their target audience, but maybe they could do a more grown up one as not all their fans are tiny! :) x

  7. The main bottle is fine, it's just the crown and material bit that makes it look tacky. One direction need to realise that not all their fans are 12 years old. I'm 22 and if the bottle didn't look so tacky I would definitely purchase this! I sniffed this when I was in debenhams one day and I absolutely love the scent. Very sweet and girly!

  8. It's nice that the set comes with a rollerball since the set doesn't last very long. It does smell pretty delicious though, I must say! x

  10. I love the smell of this, just a bit rubbish at buying perfumes (a) you could try a travalo so you can take some of it with you to top up the fragrance?xx

  11. It looks nice but I don't think I would buy it because I was a fan I would only get for the fragrance. It does sound like a nice scent though!

  13. Not a fan of the bottle, but I guess they're trying to appeal to a younger consumer.
    The perfume sounds nice, shame it doesn't last very long but I normally carry my travelo with perfume in to top up throughout the day
