ONE DIRECTION OUR MOMENT FRAGRANCE | PHILIPPINE LAUNCH | EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY

With their two globe conquering albums, 'Up All Night' and 'Take Me Home' and with the third one 'Midnight Memories' following the footsteps of its predecessors, One Direction have established themselves as the world's biggest band. This time, they're taking the fragrance route to conquer.

Taking a year in the making with the guys involved in every step of the process from the creation of the scent to the design of the stunning bottle and its packaging, their debut fragrance Our Moment is both inspired by and dedicated to their fans. The band worked closely with fragrance experts Firmenich in choosing their favourite scents, ultimately creating a vibrant and playful fruity floral fragrance reflecting the essence of One Direction.
Harry Styles comments: "It's been a long and exciting process and we're really proud to have made a One Direction fragrance."
Liam Payne adds: "We love the idea behind a fragrance as you mix individual scents to create something so much better!"
Nial Horan finishes by saying: "I've tested it on my family and they love it -and we can't wait to show it to our fans across the world."

Faye Langworthy, Fragrance License Manager for Modest! comments: "Fragrances are such an important part of any girls beauty regime that the band immersed themselves in the entire creative process to ensure the final product was of the highest quality and truly reflective of both them and their fans. We are all extremely proud of Our Moment and look forward to creating a blockbuster launch with all of our partners."

How involved you ask? Watch this video to get an idea:

CEO Corrado Brondi, CBBeauty Ltd (international distributor of Our Moment), comments: "All the fans of One Direction across the world will love the idea of using this fragrance, not only because of the high quality of the product, but also because their favorite band was very involved in the creation process."
