The boys continue to roll from strength to strength, although Harry’s hairdresser appears to have been made redundant. Out now in all the Christmassy splendour of the magical world of The Shops is One Direction That Moment EDP.
Imagine if you will those very chewy penny sweets called Fruit Salad, then add some apple shampoo and you’ve pretty much got One Direction That Moment. This is one of those occasions when the notes don’t match the scent at all. On paper I would have been eager to try this:
Top notes: apple and grapefruit
Middle notes: jasmine and violet
Base notes: musk and woods
Sounds great doesn’t it? I like every single one of those notes but couldn’t find a single one in the end result.
However, this was not made for the likes of me and somewhere, someone will be delighted when they get a bottle of this. Fruity florals don’t smell so bad on young perfumistas, but to we more…er…grown up ladies, they are like wearing a mini skirt and a mid riff top. Great on someone, terrible on me.
One Direction That Moment is nothing new at all. It’s a low cost (£9.99) bottle of the same old same old and no barriers have been broken. It does the job that is expected of it and people will like it and buy it.
However, I just want to rave about one thing: the bottle is absolutely gorgeous and I completely love it- sparkly fake diamanté and faux glass stopper and pink glass and all. Bring it on, it’s gorgeous. I can’t help myself. I want it shrunk and made into jewellery.
Stockists: One Direction That Moment is widely available out and about, but if you want to buy it online you can try allbeauty.com or Lloyds Pharmacy online . It’s worth shopping around though as I have seen the exact same bottle vary in price from 9.99 up ot £28 depending on where you buy it. On Amazon.co.uk it pays to buy the 100ml bottle at only £12.48. In the USA and Canada you can buy it from Amazon.com or Amazon.ca.
