One Direction’s ‘You & I’ Fragrance Launch — The Guys Dish On Their Newest Scent
The yummy new scent has notes of peony, orchid, musk, mango, grapefruit and peach blossom. About the name of their third scent, following “Our Moment” and “That Moment,” Liam told HollywoodLife.com:
“I mean, we love the song and obviously it’s quite a personal thing. “You and I” makes it personal, with the fragrance, so I think that was the idea behind that. The title was actually the hardest thing for this one. In the end, it turned out to be the simplest of things, and often the simple ideas are the good ones.”
He added about the inspiration: “I think it’s always about the fans, more or less.”
The guys were extremely involved in the process of making the new scent, which took them about a year. “I think we went through a list of different things and we all smelled things and found what we liked and didn’t like about girly smells — what we would want girlfriends to wear,” Liam said.
“It was all very intense but we committed the hours and here we are with a great product!” Louis Tomlinson added.

“I’m getting strong for Scarlett Johansson these days. I like that tight leather thing she’s in in The Avengers,” Liam laughed.
Louis then chimed in with: “Natalie Portman, I think she’s beautiful. She’s just gorgeous.”
“Yeah, you’ve been strong for her from the start,” Liam said.
Louis said he thinks what makes a woman sexy is “not taking herself too seriously.”
If you’re wondering where you should apply their new fragrance, Liam and Louis agree they like it best on the neck and chest area.
