That Moment

Our Moment is the name of the boys first perfume product. It was released on June 6, 2013 in London, on August 29, 2013 in Harrods and September 9, 2013 nationwide in the United Kingdom. It was first announced on June 5, 2013.

Background

The boys saw a petition, created by a fan, to have a perfume made and they got the idea from them.

“Funny enough, there was a fan on twitter who made a petition to have us make a fragrance and we spoke to management about it and took it from there,” Liam claimed. “It did happen! We just got really into it and thought we’d rather have something to do with it than whacking our name on it and going, ‘Here’s One Direction's smell’.” [1]

Speculation that a perfume was to be released began in mid-2012 and on June 5, 2013, the first official announcement about the fragrance was released.

"The guys are proud to be announcing the details of the new #1DFragrance TOMORROW… Stay tuned! 1DHQ x"[2]

Harry was the first person to reveal the name of the fragrance on twitter [3], followed by Niall [4], then the official 1D account. The 1D account also released a "vine " (a 6 second maximum video clip) with Niall promoting the fragrance[5].

The fragrance was released at Harrods on August 29, 2013 and there were cardboard cut outs of the boys from the trailer, large cardboard cutouts of the perfume bottle as well as a display of the boys favourite fragrances from the perfume.

Launch

There was a launch held in London on June 6, 2013 at the Gherkin. Laura Whitmore opened and presented the launch and a behind the scenes clip from the advert for the fragrance, due to be shown on TV soon, was played first. During the clip, Harry said "It’s all stuff we've picked, we went through all the stages. We chose the base smells and all the things like the packaging and the bottle. Seeing it come together is crazy."

Harry also explained the name was based loosley around the song Moments: "I think it’s a great thing between us and the fans". Liam said "We love the idea behind a fragrance as you mix individual scents to create something so much better!". He also elaborated the process that they've gone through making this perfume “To be honest with you we've never had so many meetings to make something, this is like a complicated piece of art. A lot of love went into this.”
