Your code is basically fine. The following seems to me just a little bit
more natural and also somewhat faster:

In[5]:=
Select[ Range[10^5], And @@ OddQ [ IntegerDigits[#]] == True & ]; // Timing
Out[5]=
{13.7167 Second, Null}
In[6]:=
Select[Range[10^5], Union[ OddQ [ IntegerDigits[#]]] == {True} & ]; //
Timing
Out[6]=
{23.7 Second, Null}
