Dita Von Teese perfume launches in the UK!
Dita Von Teese – she is the most famous name in Burlesque and synonymous with seduction. She is an international style icon, who evokes the spirit of the refined seduction. She is the physical embodiment of everything she is presenting to a worldwide audience with her first scent creation: Glamour, elegance, and self-confident sensuality. That’s why her new scent can have only one name: ‘Dita Von Teese’.
Sexy and alluring, seductive and glamourous, you could be talking about Dita Von Teese or her new perfume which is launching into Boots store across the UK this month. With so many celebrities launching a perfume, it’s not often that we sit up and take notice, but when a stylish vamp like Dita decides to enter the fragrance market, we want to know more! Dita Von Teese is a name that conjures up vintage glamour, timeless style and burlesque seduction, so don’t expect a pretty sweet flower scent as her first foray in perfumes.
Dita says: “I wanted it to be a perfume that smelled exactly how I imagined it. A scent needs to reflect all the different facets of my personality. It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious.” So what does it smell like? The Dita Von Teese perfume has top notes of fresh peonies, sparkling bergamot and spicy Bourbon pepper, mid notes bring you Bulgarian rose, Tahitian Tiaré petals, and fresh jasmine and the base notes finish off with a warm, woody and alluring scent of patchouli, musk, and sandalwood.
Dita Von Teese is best known for her artful burlesque stripping, so why did she decide to create her own perfume? Her decision to design her own fragrance came from the fact that her boyfriend’s mother at that time, happened to share the same taste in fragrance. Dita says: “It turned out his mother was wearing the same perfume as I was so I called one of my friends who’s a perfumer and I said what do I do? It’s my signature perfume! He said well you either have to get rid of the man or get rid of the fragrance.” She decided instead to create her very own fragrance, as she wanted to design something unique. She says: “I wanted to make something from scratch and do something really special. It’s very womanly and sophisticated. It’s about big voluptuous flowers with things like smoky Gaiec wood and patchouli.”
And even the bottle is pure Dita, and in no doubt a homage to her love of all things vintage. We adore the black ridged glass and pump atomiser, it is so twenties in style it’s fabulous! And adding the black silk tassel to vamp up the retro feel with the red glass bead makes such a vintage statement.
As for the price, at £18 a bottle we were more than surprised as the fragrance lasts for hours and smells like a much more expensive Eau de Parfum. So if you like a sensuous and exotic perfume then we recommend Dita Von Teese. Available to buy from Boots at £18.
