"As a band, we have been discussing making a fragrance for our fans for quite a while so we're really excited to finally have this opportunity. We've been working away on this and we're very proud of the way it has turned out. We really can't wait to hear what our fans think," says Niall Horan from One Direction.
"The band is incredibly passionate about this project and has been closely involved in the creation of the scent, the packaging and bottle design, and the name itself. The name of the fragrance is still confidential, but more news will be revealed in early 2013," states One Direction's Manager, Will Bloomfield, of Modest! Management.
Olivann Beauty Chairman & CEO Eugene Melnyk comments, "We are thrilled to partner with One Direction, one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry.
