Dita Von Teese to launch fragrance

Dita Von Teese's dream has come true - she's finally landed her very own fragrance line.

The burlesque beauty has struggled to gain a perfume deal as many cosmetic companies feared she wasn't famous enough to carry a brand, but Von Teese's perseverance has paid off - she's now bottled up a number of scents, including peonies and roses, to create Eau de Dita.

She tells Women's Wear Daily, "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. There's no fruity vanilla bulls**t. A lot of celebrity fragrances are fruit, vanilla, and I wanted something for grown-up girls."

The fragrance will hit stores in Australia this autumn (11) to coincide with the release of her lingerie collection and will be available internationally next year (12).
