When One Direction announced the upcoming release of the band's fourth fragrance, Between Us, naturally we were beyond excited since their perfumes are all staple scents in our lives. The boys also released a super cute behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot they did for the fragrance that features too many adorable moments of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson.
Obviously former band member Zayn Malik wasn't at the photo shoot and isn't a part of this new fragrance, but fans have noticed that these particular photos are awfully familiar. In fact, according to 1D's official Instagram, this fragrance shoot took place back in November 2014. Here is the evidence:
Liam, Niall and Louis are wearing the same outfits and their hair looks exactly the same too. Also noticeably missing in the BTS video is Harry's mermaid tattoo, which we know is now on his left forearm in between the rose and anchor ink.
This leaves us to wonder if the band already knew that Zayn wanted to leave last year. The last fragrance ad featuring all 5 of the original group members looks like it could've been taken this day too, if we're just basing it on the guys' hairstyles.
Zayn hadn't yet cut his hair and in November, he was rocking this swoopy, long 'do we see in the photo. This adds yet another layer to this whole issue, leading some fans to think that Zayn might've been present for this new photo shoot but since he has since left the band, all of his parts were just edited out or he was only there for certain pics.
We're not really sure what the truth is, but at least we have a new perfume hitting stores in August that now has a major air of mystery around it.
