German licensee Luxess GmbH holds the worldwide marketing rights for the Dita Von Teese fragrance project.
This Fall, Dita Von Teese will launch her first perfume, a signature scent that the burlesque beauty describes as "Elegant, sophisticated, and glamorous, with a bit of mystery." In conjunction with German based company Luxess, Von Teese has created a sophisticated and refined bouquet, a melange of seduction and nostalgia, which evokes her powerful femininity. A fragrance for authentic, passionate and self-confident women, the signature scent allows consumers to access the glamour of Von Teese’s world. The idea of creating a perfume which is loved by women and which fascinates men has been nurtured by the burlesque star for a long time. "Perfume is the aura of the sophisticated woman, and the knowledge and effective use of perfume is the very foundation of glamour. I am very proud of this perfume, which is a stepping-stone to becoming the ultimate 'femme totale!'" Von Teese explains.

Dita's variety show "Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!" played to sold-out crowds at the House of Blues in New Orleans, Dallas and Houston in July. Along with MC Murray Hill, "the hardest working middle-aged man in show business," Dita treated Southern crowds to over an hour of entertainment featuring some of the brightest stars of burlesque: Dirty Martini, Selene Luna, Monsieur Romeo of L'Effleur Des Sens, Lada of the Crazy Horse Paris, and Medianoche. Von Teese's performances included her new Swarovski Martini Glass act which she calls her "ultimate, most decadent, and dazzling martini glass ever," her "Rhinestone Cowgirl" show which features her dressed in head to toe pink Swarovski crystal, twirling sparkling pistols and wearing custom-made Christian Louboutin Cowboy boots, as well as her most opulent show to date, the Opium Den.

The Crazy Horse cabaret has been a Parisian landmark since 1951. The cabaret is known for celebrating the beauty, personality and pure talent of its female dancers, and has been visited by an incredible list of who's-who...from icons like Mae West, Marilyn Monroe and Salvador Dali to major heads of state, including John F. Kennedy. Dita Von Teese was the first guest star in the history of the legendary cabaret in 2006, and returned to the iconic stage in 2009 for four weeks of sold out shows. This DVD showcases the full show, which includes three of Dita's sensual numbers not available for viewing anywhere else.
