Well, my fellow Directioners, One Direction has done it again – they have come out with yet another deliciously adorable fragrance. The newest addition to their fragrance line, “You & I” is described as a bright, fresh, fruity floral.
Top notes: fruity – mango, peach blossom, grapefruit.
Mid notes: floral – peony, osmanthus, orchid.
Dry notes: praline, sandalwood, musk
My first impression of this fragrance were the delicious fruity top notes- the very subtle citrus of the grapefruit mixed beautifully with peach and mango. After a few seconds, the floral mid notes start to surface.
I would personally describe it as a romantic, sweet floral fragrance.
“You & I” is definitely a fresher, more floral-based scent compared to their previous 2 fragrances. The floral is in no way overpowering, however – it’s a perfect combination of fresh floral, subtle citrus, and sweet fruit.
The design: a funky, jewel-shaped bottle with clear glass, purple, and gold outlining. All of their fragrance bottles so far have had a sort of angular, jewel-shaped vibe to them. This one (in comparison to the previous fragrances) is longer and taller, with a longer and thinner bottle cap.
I absolutely love this fragrance, although I’m pretty sure that I will love any fragrance that One Direction comes out with (oops, my inner 13 year old fangirl is showing again)
I do personally think that this is more of a spring/summer fragrance, as with their “That Moment” fragrance.
Bottomline: If you like fresh, fruity floral fragrances – or if you happen to be a massive One Direction fan, I highly recommend trying this one out! If you hate florals, you might like the “That Moment” fragrance more, as it has a stronger fruity scent.
It can currently be purchased in gift sets that typically come with a body lotion/body wash. If you can find a box set, they really are a much better value!
Have you tried this fragrance? What are your thoughts on it?
