The totally feminine fragrance by burlesque beauty, Dita Von Teese has finally revealed her new perfume to the world and it is named, FEMME TOTALE.
FEMME TOTALE is described as "glamourous and mysterious. Self-confident and seductive".
The fragrance will OFFICIALLY launch at the end of October 2011 (just in time for my birthday!) wink.

The French perfume house MEMO introduces the new scent, GRANADA given honor to the city in Spain.
Clara Molloy, the brainchild behind the house of MEMO was a book publisher who created this successful perfumery in 2007.
GRANADA is described as a "warm and spicy" scent. It relishes in the exotic and mystical isles of the Inca. The perfect fragrance for those who seek scents from faraway locals.
This fragrance is an Eau de Parfum and its featured notes... TOP NOTES: bergamot, lemon, ginger HEART NOTES: iris, cypress, tonka BASE NOTES: vanilla, opoponax, labdanum
Now this is my kind of style from reading and researching about perfumery, to starting a perfume house. In my opinion it pays to do lots of research before launching a company. The results have paid off for Ms. Molloy tremendously.
GRANADA is available in sizes 30 & 75 ML.
The dazzling house of L'Artisan Parfumeur releases a new fragrance in October that will make you put on your dancing shoes and sip a mojito. The musical sounds of BATUCADA, "the fragrance with rhythm and a samba style that originates from Rio de Janeiro.

Jesus del Pozo, the fashion designer of glamorous Spanish designs and spectacular runaway shows in Madrid, Spain passed away on August 13, 2011. I came to know Mr. del Pozo through his work in perfumery which the creations of the HALLOWEEN collection and other globally known fragrances developed during the years.

A Perfume made from Icelandic glacial water?
Yep! EFJ ( Eyjafjalljokull) by Gydja (prounced gith-e-ya) is a "classic, spicy light and fresh fragrance". EFJ Eau de Parfum is made from pure glacial water from Eyjafjalljokull and every bottle comes from a small lava rock from the volcano.
The company Gydja Collection is an Icelandic luxury fashion brand established in 2007. EFJ is an exotic scent inspired by Icelandic nature and the featured notes are citrus, vanilla, roses and bergamot.
Gydja Collection will launch an upcoming eau de parfum for men.
The NATURAL BRAND
Indie brand SOIVOHLE (pronounced see-vo) created by owner and perfumer, Liz Zorn has recently launched two new fragrances for men, Transcendental Musc and Rivertown Road.
Ms, Zorn exquisitely makes all of her scents that seem so complex to create seem so easy and always leaves the wearer of the scent simply captivated.
Not only did Ms. Zorn launch two new fragrances this year but coming soon all fragrance enthusiasts of Liz Zorn will be able to make their very own perfume at the Scentual Artistry studio in Cincinnati, Ohio.
What could be better than having an expert perfumer help you create your very own fragrance. I personally cannot wait to hear more and take part in this magical journey in the Midwest (USA).
