London, UK - International style icon Dita Von Teese will launch her eponymous fragrance exclusively at Liberty on 1st May. A name synonymous with seduction, style and burlesque, Dita wanted her first perfume to evoke glamour, elegance, and self-confident sensuality.

“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.”

Dita created a timeless scent which 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 Tiaré 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.

Dita Von Teese – The Flacon

Like an homage to the 1930s, the black glass bottles express Dita Von Teese’s glamour and allure along with her love for all things vintage. With their elaborate details, the flacons represent the type of luxurious accessories found in the boudoir of any sensual woman. The elaborate cut of the glass is reminiscent of vintage perfume bottles that today are collector’s items.

“My perfume’s flacons need to be the absolute embodiment of my dream of glamour, mystery and beauty. 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.

The elegant upright bottle features a ball atomizer as the perfect finishing touch to its seductive silhouette. The extraordinary perfume amphora fits perfectly in one’s hand, and is the ultimate accessory for the evening bag. Completely burlesque, full of glamour, and every bit Dita Von Teese – the neck of every bottle is adorned with a silk cord with a nail polish-red pearl, which flows into a long black silk tassel.
