Mercedes Benz has launched its first-ever fragrance. The classic automotive company has a line of high-end watches and eye wear, and earlier this year announced its plans to launch Mercedes Benz fragrance.
The scent, which was created by perfume house Firmenich, will be available in early 2012 as an eau de toilette, deodorant, aftershave, and bath and shower gel.
Dita Von Teese has released a glimpse of her upcoming campaign for her new fragrance, Femme Totale. The campaign, as well as the perfume bottle, is a throwback to '30s-era fragrances. (Check out the old-school atomizer in the photo!)
Von Teese doesn't skimp on vamp, either. The busty burlesque queen is dressed in all black, revealing just a hint of cleavage.
“My perfume’s flacons need to be the absolute embodiment of my dream of glamour, mystery, beauty, and the Femme Fatale,” Von Teese says in recent press release. "I have always been a passionate collector of rare perfume bottles from the 1920s and 1930s. They are usually made of opaque glass, black or red, and are always extremely elegant, luxurious, and classy.”
Femme Totale is a combination of bergamot, peony, pepper, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, patchouli, musk, Gaiac wood and sandalwood.
“A scent needs to reflect all the different facets of my personality. It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious.”

The creation of Pulse was inspired by Beyonce's favorite flower, the orchid. A delicate heart of Bluebird orchid blends with peony and jasmine following a bubbly opening of bergamot, Blue Curacao and pear.
On why the company chose Blunt, YSL President Renaud de Lesquen says, “over and above her beauty and elegance, we were impressed by the career and artistic options.”
Fragrance ads featuring Blunt in the new campaign will launch in October.
