One Direction have revealed that they are to release their own scent, and have asked fans for their ideas.

Niall Horan broke the news on Twitter, writing: "BIG NEWS! A 1D fragrance is on the way! We've been discussing it for ages & can't wait to hear what fans think."

The fivesome will be joining stars such as Britney Spears, Lady GaGa, Tulisa and Justin Bieber in launching their own brand of perfume.

Dana Kline, president of Olivann Beauty, told WWD that the boyband will first concentrate on markets where they are touring and then continue to roll out from there.

More details, such as the name, will be released early next year.
