One Direction Debut Commercial Behind New Perfume ‘You & I’
Sure to be topping holiday wish lists for teenage girls (and, no judgment, maybe a couple of aunts), One Direction have released a commercial for their newest fragrance, “You & I.”

The name, taken from their Midnight Memories hit of the same name, was no doubt picked for the way it casually suggests that you are just one perfume away from going backstage and meeting one of the guys. Then you’d fall in love, and they’d forget all about “Diana” and decide to marry you. You’d live happily ever after, splitting your time evenly between the United Kingdom and the United States.

Why One Direction Was the Best Show Ever (Even If My Dad Was There)
t may not have been the perfect situation: two teenage girls and their dads at the Aug. 5 show of One Direction’s “Where We Are” tour at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

But after three years of fangirling over one of my favorite bands — owning all their music, following them on Twitter and connecting with Directioners all over the world — I knew I’d have to see them one way or another (yes, that’s a reference to one of their songs).

On my 15th birthday back in April, when my friend Sarah hid my ticket to the concert in a box of Starburst Fruit Chews, I started counting the days until Aug. 5. It came faster than I thought. And now I can honestly say it was the best night of my life.
