Eau de Teese

29 July 2011

Regular readers of Grazia Daily will know that here in the beauty section we hold a real soft spot for queen of burlesque, Dita von Teese. After all, who could resist cooing over that flawless alabaster skin, perfectly arched brows (which we reported on back in May), and rich red lip.  Swoon.  Now, it so happens that Von Teese has quite literally just put the finishing touches to her new scent, revealing it only this week.  'My signature fragrance that I’ve been wearing since I was 14 is Quelques Fleurs, and I had to stop wearing it because my boyfriend’s mother wore it,' she explained at the Turtle Creek launch. 'So that was a perfect time to develop my own fragrance,' she told WWD.  'We’ve only just come up with the scent, so I’m still working on my lingo, but it’s a lot of luscious flowers — Bulgarian rose, tiare, peony — and there’s a sexy wood.' The fragrance will launch in 2012 alongside her brand new lingerie collection. Ooh err! 

Dita has done her very utmost to steer clear of the ‘celebrity fragrance’ label.  'It’s a fragrance for everyone, and I’m really proud of the level of sophistication we reached both with the packaging and the fragrance,' see explained 'There’s no fruity vanilla bull---t. I’m sorry, but you know what I mean? A lot of celebrity fragrances are fruit, vanilla, and I wanted something for grown-up girls.' What exciting news.  Will you be looking out for this one?
