Finally here’s our first look at Dita Von Teese’s debut signature fragrance, “Dita Von Teese.” Currently in France unveiling the new fragrance, it is being spruiked as being glamorous and mysterious, self-confident and seductive as it only it could be from Dita.
Dita Von Teese said about her debut fragrance:
“I wanted it to be a perfume that smelled exactly how I imagined it. I doubt the perfumers in Paris imagined that I would be in their shop almost every day for an entire year,” says Dita Von Teese, describing the work she put into her first perfume.
“There were enough moments when I could have easily said “this is how the perfume should smell.’ But I wanted it to be perfect, and threw out many previous compositions and refined them. I gave samples to friends, and tested how others reacted to me and to my perfume. This process continued until I found the exact composition that was perfect both for me and for others,” she says, describing her perfume’s elaborate development process.
The scent opens with a head note composed of fresh peonies, fizzy bergamot, and slightly spicy Bourbon pepper. The heart of the perfume beguiles the senses with a full and at the same time pure bouquet of Bulgarian rose, Tahitian Tiara petals, and fresh jasmine. And in the base note, the mystical and warm scents of patchouli, musk, and smoky Gaiac wood and sandalwood captivate all who smell it.
“A scent needs to reflect all the different facets of my personality. It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious,” says Dita Von Teese, characterizing her odeur.
The black glass bottle pays homage to the vintage bottles of the 1930s featuring a ball atomizer:
“My perfume’s flacons need to be the absolute embodiment of my dream of glamour, mystery, beauty, and the Femme Fatale. I have always been a passionate collector of rare perfume bottles from the 1920s and 1930s. They are usually made of opaque glass, black or red, and are always extremely elegant, luxurious, and classy,” says Dita Von Teese, describing her passion for form and design.
“Dita Von Teese Fragrance will be available in European stores from late October 2011 available in Eau de Parfum, 20ml, 40ml, Deodorant Spray 150ml, Shower Gel 200ml and Body Lotion 200ml.
Am trying to find out if it will be arriving on Australian shores.
