Last month, we were lucky enough to enjoy afternoon tea and chat to the lovely One Direction boys about their latest fragrance launch 'Between Us!' The top secret event was held at the beautiful Sanderson Hotel in London and the room was set out as a afternoon tea party. The tables were set out beautifully with a spread of delicious treats. This included cakes, scones and of course, lots of tea! Bottles of their new fragrance were dotted around the tables so we could all have a smell, and we think it's lovely. The boys took some time out from touring 'On The Road Again' to have afternoon tea with us and told us the process of making 'Between Us.' It was such an exciting day!
As always, One Direction are really involved in the process of making their fragrances. The four guys each have their own opinions on what smells and looks good when creating the fragrance, all bringing something different to the finished product. We also had the chance of seeing the first ever preview of the advert for the fragrance and its brilliant, and of course hilarious too! The 1D guys love to make us all laugh! You can see in the advert how each of them bring something completely different to the fragrance. It shows the boys going on a mission to find the ingredients for the fragrance! Harry starts with Hiking up the mountains for a freesia, Liam dives to the deepest ocean to get amber and Louis is seen in a space suit getting apricot. I love Niall's part in the advert where he uses his tears for his ingredient! Each of these things show the ingredients that went into making 'Between Us.'
DID YOU GUYS ENJOY FILMING THE ADVERT?
LIAM: It's so hard to walk around in flippers! It was a lot of fun. It was actually quite a good workout.
WHO IS THE BEST AND WORST SMELLING MEMBER OF 1D?
NIALL: Everyone always says I smell good! But I don’t know because I can’t smell myself!
WHO IS THE GIRL THAT WEARS THIS FRAGRANCE?
WHO IS THE GIRL THAT WEARS THIS FRAGRANCE?
NIALL: Emma Watson. You know, sophisticated!
HARRY: Niall definitely smells the best.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE SMELL? SOMETHING THAT REMINDS YOU OF YOUR CHILDHOOD?
LIAM: Islands of Adventure in Florida. I used to go there every Christmas. Whenever I walk into Jurassic Park, with the water, it's that smell! Sometimes I’ll be walking down the street and I’ll think ‘this smells like America!’ (We had a big long chat about Florida rides with Liam, as you guys know, we love Florida and all the rides!)
THE DATES IN THE 'NIGHT CHANGES' VIDEO, ARE ANY BASED ON REAL EXPERIENCES?
HARRY: No! That would be unfortunate! It was a fun video though! My favourite video has to be 'What Makes You Beautiful' because we had no idea what we were doing.
DO YOU WEAR AFTERSHAVE?
HARRY: Yeah. Tom Ford. (Oooh lovely Harry!)
NIALL: I wear Hugo Boss.
WHO'S THE BIGGEST PRANKSTER ON TOUR?
NIALL: Louis. Louis is a messer. Recently he was on stage just throwing water at everyone. Harry always throws water at the crowd. We were in LA a little while ago and we rented this car. Louis covered my car in toilet paper!
WHAT'S YOUR BEST PRANK LOUIS?
LOUIS: It’s normally pretty standard! If someone falls asleep they get drawn on, food thrown on them!
DO YOU EVER WATCH BACK YOUR X FACTOR AUDITION?
LOUIS: Every now and then. It’s pretty funny and cringey.
WILL YOU BE PERFORMING ANY OF THE NEW MATERIAL ON THE UK TOUR?
LIAM: Possibly the new single! (This makes us so excited!)
The fragrance is their fourth launched fragrance, and I would say it is very different from their previous fragrances as this one is definitely more 'grown up and sophisticated' with a blend of 'delicate fruit and sensual floral notes and spicy undertones.' The fragrance definitely represents the band's growth over the last couple of years and not only does it look good, it also smells amazing! Isn't the bottle so glamorous! It's the perfect sophisticated bottle for my dressing table. Niall said that he could imagine Emma Watson or Natalie Portman wearing this fragrance, someone sophisticated! The bottle also represents this with its super sleek design and I love how it's finished off with a cute ribbon with the One Direction logo. Have you guys had a smell of their new fragrance? Let us know what you think in the comments! It was such a pleasure meeting One Direction and something we will never forget! We can't wait to see them at the 'On The Road Again' tour hear 'Drag Me Down' live! Check out our Instagram's to see our selfies with all the boys and make sure you follow us on there!
