Dita Von Teese launches second signature fragrance
American burlesque dancer, model, costume designer, and actress Dita Von Teese, frequently dubbed “the Queen of Burlesque“, presented the second foray into the world of perfume keeping Von Teese’s fascination with 1940s cinema and classic retro style.
Dita Von Teese Rouge fragrance is a combination of orange bergamot, pink pepper, Lapsang Souchong tea, magnolia, and raw amber.
“I love the smoky smell of the Lapsang Souchong tea, which we combined with ambergris to create a voluptuous scent,” Von Teese said in a statement about Rouge.
“’Rouge’“ is the elixir of a self-assured and glamorous woman who loves to be surrounded by glamour and beauty in her day-to-day life. She understands that to be truly seductive, she creates this mood for her own pleasure, and flourishes in the art of being a woman,” this is how Dita Von Teese describes her new fragrance.
The scent initially appears as an inviting combination of invigorating and luscious bergamot, surprisingly followed by pink pepper and then complimented by the mysterious Lapsang-Souchong tea. The heart entices with beautiful and delicate magnolia blooms, enhanced by the erotic amber and sensually sweet gaiac-wood. The background features a unique sequence of soft sandalwood, combined with smoky patchouli and the sweet yet powerful Tonka-bean. The result is a rich but also sensually feminine fragrance, which is mysteriously seductive but also radiates the glamour and elegance of a strong and self-assured woman.
Dita Von Teese Rouge is available in: Eau de Parfum, 20 ml (19,90 Euro), Eau de Parfum, 40 ml (34,90 Euro), Satin Shower Gel, 200 ml (13,80 Euro), Sensual Body Lotion, 200 ml (13,80 Euro)
This summer, the burlesque star teamed up with Los Angeles designer vintage shop Decades to launch the Dita Von Teese Collection, a line of all-black designs.
