While we see all of our favorite celebrities on TV, it’s rare that we catch a glimpse of them in reality, that too close enough to really pick up on their persona and the aura that they carry with them. For all the Harry Styles fans out there, he’s revealed in an exclusive interview exactly what he smells like. That brings you a little step closer to knowing what it must be like in his real life presence.
Harry Styles, a former lead singer of the dissolved band: One Direction, recently collaborated with Gucci to appear in their Mémoire d’une Odeur perfume campaign and subsequently gave an interview to Dazed about the experience.
He told Dazed:
I like a fragrance that has some emotion behind it. The triggering of memories from smell is really strong for everyone. My mother has always worn the same perfume. It smells like roman candles and jasmine. So like anytime I smell it, I feel like a kid again. I feel like everyone has those.”
Speaking of the particular fragrance that he collaborated with Gucci to promote, Harry Styles said that it “transcends gender.” He further added that:
I really like wearing it because it’s (Gucci’s) first universal fragrance. It’s really fresh to me. Floral, clean, not heavy. It smells like what I imagine Joan Didion’s house to smell like.”
He even added further that he wears the scent “all the time,” claiming that he even sleeps in it. We can already sense the stocks of the perfume running out in stores as fans rush to grab their own bottles.
After One Direction dissolved and the singers took their own routes in the music industry, Harry Styles stepped aside from mainstream singing to follow a career in fashion. Since then, he has become quite the style icon, even holding the honor of being the face of Gucci’s custom-tailored collection. The star even wore one of the pieces from the collection at this year’s Met Gala.
On the topic of the fashion and clothes, he said:
I love the clothes. That helps a lot. Just going on stage in a nuts suit with a bunch of sequins makes you feel good, and then you want to play.”
