CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The holidays are upon us and with all of the celebrations and festivities, comes the pressure to make the holidays magical. In continuation of their recently-launched #LiveNaughtySmellNice campaign, Febreze is encouraging folks to stop stressing about making their celebrations picturesque, embrace the imperfections and take a walk on the naughty side this holiday season — because with Febreze, they’ll always land on the nice list (or at least smell like they are).

And speaking of living naughty, everyone's favorite group of "bad moms" are back for the holidays! Febreze is proud to partner with STXfilms’ new comedy “A Bad Moms Christmas” which follows the hilarious antics of three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. At the Los Angeles world premiere of the film held on October 30th, for the first time ever, Febreze scented the red carpet with their festive-smelling, odor-eliminating products: so luckily Febreze kept things smelling nice, while any and all “Bad Moms” embraced their inner naughty.

“The Febreze family is so excited to partner with the team behind ‘A Bad Moms Christmas’ and celebrate the premiere of this hilarious movie,” said Mandy Ciccarella, Febreze Communications Manager. “As the brand that’s encouraging folks to #LiveNaughtySmellNice this holiday season, we couldn’t envision a more wonderful collaboration. No one knows how to ‘live naughty’ better than the moms in this movie – and with our holiday collection of scents, Febreze is happy to help them ‘smell nice’ while doing so.”

The aromatic evening began at the movie’s premiere at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles where guests, including the cast of the film, walked down the first-ever Febreze-scented red carpet. Little host, “Truth Bomb Mom” Kristina Kuzmic, served as Febreze’s “mama on the mic.” Kuzmic was able to catch up with premiere attendees and got the scoop on who is on n the naughty or nice lists, favorite holiday smells and some of their best parenting tips. Footage of Kristina’s interviews can be found here.

Following the premiere, the fun continued with an after party at Baltaire in Los Angeles where Febreze treated guests to a holiday-themed dessert bar reflective of the scents in the brand’s holiday collection. Febreze also highlighted their odor-eliminating benefits at one of the smelliest places at any party: the bathroom!

Luckily, Febreze’s holiday collection isn’t just for Hollywood’s elite. A full line of limited-edition holiday scents can be found online and in stores nationwide in Fresh Pressed Apple, Fresh Twist Cranberry, Fresh Cut Pine and Fresh Fall Pumpkin to keep homes fresh and festive all season long.

With proprietary malodor elimination technologies, Febreze products have the ability to truly eliminate odors and replace them with a light, fresh holiday scent.

The brand is also encouraging folks to share how they plan to #LiveNaughtySmellNice this holiday season on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
