Amazing scent that ist full of all the notes I love and adore. Sillage and longevity is moderate but the bottle is so compact that you can easily carry it in your bag to steal a spritz now and then.
On me the scent is mainly pepper, leather and amber. So sexy and elegant and perfect for fall!

PS: Layered this with Midnight in Paris today - fabulous leather vanilla bomb :)

Oh, after the test I finally bought this, and I love it! Perfect, though doesn't last long on skin but it does on hair!

I got the idea to layer it with L'Air De Rien for a knockout punch... But waiting for the occasion.

Raw smokey leather and cedar. I was in love after the first smell, I didn't even have time to appreciate the rose and other woods, the first sniff made me almost fall onto my back from olfactory pleasure. This is truly erotic, in the way that it fulfills the desires you don't dare to name. No sweet pink trendy horror here. A perfume with such a name makes a promise, and this made me wary a little (what if I get a big dose of the terrible candied fruits that are trendy today), but this one keeps that promise.

After stumbling over the database entry of this one, I knew I had to try it. Just by seeing the notes this could have been perfectly fitting to a male fragrance as well.
I checked online where I may get it and was happy to see that the big drugstore chains in town have this perfume.

Today I went there to sample Erotique. I had sprayed some on a paper strip first, but unfortunetally smelled next to nothing, only a hint of extreme woody dryness, somehow familiar.
As I didn´t seem to smell much (so would be okay to try on skin without interfering the perfume I wore), I sprayed it on the back of my left hand. Something I usually don´t, because when I go outside, I alread wear perfume and I do not want to mix different scents (unless I am layering of course).
On my skin, it smelled somewhat stronger, but still not really strong. It was there, but not loud. But even felt more familiar at this time. I tried to find out, which perfume this might remind me on.. I read a comparison to some CdG scent on another board, but as I didn´t sample it yet, this couldn´t be what I smelled.
But I knew it must have been a dry woody oud scent.
Though I didn´t smell leather at all and was expecting a leather jewel when I went on my hunt, I grabbed the last gift box (because it was cheaper than the perfume of the same size on its own) and bought it.

I couldn´t stop smelling my hand, though Erotique appeared strange:
Every now and then I got a whiff of this dry wood with subtle spice. Even when my hand wasn´t even near my face. When I then put my nose directly where I sprayed it on, I didn´t smell much. But sometimes, as my hand was on its way to my nose yet still some inches away, the scent got stronger, but as soon as I thought I´ve caught it and would be able to smell the whole beauty of it.. it nearly disappeared again.

It faded quickly (beside the mentioned effect), and on my way back home I re-applied some of my new Dita von Teese fragrance. Again my memory told me 'Boy, you know this scent!'. But I just couldn´t remember...
I started to get pissed a bit, not being able to give the scent in my memory a name and thought it can´t be that hard to go through all the oud scents I´ve already sampled and I started to make a list in my mind.
The first dry woody oud perfume that then popped up in front of my inner eye was Hugo Boss The Collection Damask Oud and even if it still took some more seconds to realise, that THIS is what I was trying to find so hard, I finally had my enlightment!

Yes, Erotique to my nose and on my skin is very close to Damask Oud! Unfortunetally it doesn´t only share the scent but as well the disadvantages (longevity and sillage).
But is much cheaper on the other hand and more impotant, it is available where I live!

The notes that I got on my first trials are a very dry wood (matches the description of norlimbanol, but as I haven´t smelled the raw material, I do not know if it really is that), some incense, a dry cedar, dry smoky guajak, pepper and maybe the lightest traces of rose and coriander seeds. I don´t smell leather at all, nor musk. I´m not sure about the sandalwood.

Comparing the perfume pyramid to the one from Damask Oud, I now can see that the resemblance I got comes not by chance:
There you have incense, guajak wood, pepper, rose and cedar shared with Erotique. Where the Dita fragrance has musk, coriander, sandal and leather, the Boss scent has saffron (which can show leathery aspects), papyrus and oud.
They aren´t exactly the same, yes, but on my skin they are very close.

Longevity of Erotique is about 3 hours for me. Not really good. But could be worse and maybe it´s because of the warm weather.

Sillage is hard to tell. Basically I´d call it a skin scent. But as I said, I sometimes get whiffs when my arm hangs low. So should be better.

I do like this scent, and I am quite sure I will buy it again. Though it bugs that biggest bottle size is 40ml. Which is not much and seems to be even less, when you have to re-apply it.

I recommend every man who likes (dry) woody scents to sample Dita von Teese Erotique!
Even more if you like Damask Oud but can´t get it or don´t want to pay the price.

I may update this review after I´ve worn it a few more times.

Edit:
Sometimes I get some musk in the drydown of this scent. And it reminds me of the musk I sometimes (not always) get from Encre Noire pour homme. So I guess it could be Iso E Super among others.

I do like original Dita, Rouge and Fleur'tease aren't bad, all together there're really interesting, non-conventional scents with "luxury" touch. Unfortunately, Erotique, although its name, is... intolerable. Like punch in your nose, very strong, defined and masculine smell you don't know how to tame. Not for myself, not for my boyfriend, I don't find it romance/seductive at all. For my nose is sharp and really unpleasant, so unpleasant that I ran to the bathroom with "urgent" signal, note - this frag is so strong that even triple washing (with soap) wasn't enough :) If I had to point family of this kind of perfumes I would say Nu Ysl. Maybe again, it's sophisticated in some way, surely not sugary-infantile jelly for teenagers but for me unfortunately simply intolerable.

My signature fragrance is Kelly Caleche, so I love roses and leather in a combination. Incense is one of my favourite notes too, so when I saw these as some of the notes in Erotique I was intrigued. Firstly, I love the first Dita Von Teese fragrance, it is very reminiscent of that vintage era of elegance that is lacking in a lot of today's sugar sweet perfumes. I have also tried Rouge, which was very pretty but not as impressive for me so I wondered if Dita has lost her perfuming way. I never bought Fleur as to be honest it sounded rather pedestrian.

So back to the perfume at hand, Erotique. I was unable to buy it in the UK (for some reason), so found a seller in Hungary. I received it this morning and WOW was it worth the wait! At first sniff, it was a very dry peppery leather and I wasn't sure at all. But within 10 minutes it's full beauty had started to unfold. The pepper sits back to just give a slight spicy depth (black pepper can be a tricky note for me personally). The star of the show is the leather. It is an intensely erotic fragrance, smelling like butter soft, clean, slightly soapy leather. The slight soapy quality I think is a combination of the rose and sandalwood. It's not a girly soapy smell but reminds me of when the smell of sandalwood saddlesoap on leather hides. The incense makes an appearance about now toning down any pretention to this fragrance being purely feminine. It is much more, it is feminine erotica! Forget Fifty Shades, get this! As you can tell, I'm in love!

I am not opposed to celebrity or lower price point fragrances because what matters is the scent. It is probably true many celebrities slap their names on everything to help ensure their retirement will be comfortable but I have a feeling Dita Von Teese knew what she wanted with this fragrance and I would say it's all here. This smells like the essence of sex. Not sex itself but rather the feelings and moments that lead to sex. Yes, it is Erotique!

Erotique is primal but clean much like most people on the prowl; understated yet clearly primped with high hopes for the night. Let us begin this journey!

I did not smell leather at first but rather a pile of woods and incense burning in the sand on a hot day. Not a beach because that would mean oceanic or marine notes and their coolness. This is hot and dry without a hint of coolness. Ice princesses beware and only wear this if you want to smoulder. It is not fresh but it is clean but with no soapiness. There is a moment where you smell the leather but it smells like a leather corset worn next to the skin which has been washed with a French rose fragranced body wash. Again, no soap just cleanliness.

Yes, there is pepper and coriander but they are more like expensive and tasteful reed diffusing air freshners in the background providing a complimentary experience to the fragrance wearer. Vanilla, fruit and flowers would not be welcome and indeed would be like adding 7 Up to whiskey. Why ruin perfection?

What is not perfect is longevity. I sprayed it before I went to bed and it was almost gone when I woke up. I spray in the morning and have to spray again at lunch. It is because I must carry this I find the lock and key charm useful: it prevents the fragrance from being sprayed by accident in my handbag.

I had difficulty finding this in Ireland and eventually bought online. It is affordable and a welcome addition to any perfume collection, even a tightly edited one. I think you'll be surprised by home often it is used. Sometimes I apply some Kiehls Musk Oil or Avon Night Musk before spraying this on but rarely. Like I said this is a perfect fragrance so I'm not going to tinker with that! At least not too often.

P.s. When I'm rinsing out my stockings I let them soak in water that has some of the Erotique shower gel in it after I have washed them. This gives a light fragrance off them, especially after wearing them for a while. It is subtle but a nice way to layer the fragrance!

This is beautiful, in a really grown up kind of way. A little naughty, but nice. Leather first hits my nose when I spray this - a sort of plasticky leather if I'm honest - then it starts to soften, and goes through a smoky rose phase, backed up by smoky, musky woods that give it presence and solidity. I really liked this from the get go, but found it difficult to integrate into my life, even though it suits my skin chemistry enough to be wearable and a little bit sexy. Beware though: this is the kind of scent that HAS to suit your skin chemistry. If you're lucky, you'll enjoy this a lot, if not, you'll hate it. I can understand why others hate it. It suits me so I love it. That's usually what happens with perfumes!
I am very pleased to have this in my "arsenal" of scents, and I find it goes superbly with a nice pair of black leather boots (high heeled of course) on a rainy day with a nice dress and coat. Dita has created a perfume that is HER version of "aspirational". We all have a fantasy of the kind of woman we want to be, and perfume helps to anchor that fantasy, by making the image seem more real, as it is fleshed out with scent. I wouldn't call this scent a masterpiece, but it is nicely executed and I shall most definitely keep wearing it.

This is a total pepperbomb on me. It's a very 'dry' scent, and with my own particular chemistry, I am unable to detect much variation from it other than the aforementioned pepper and perhaps a little unspecified 'woodsiness'. I sadly do not get any of the leather that others have mentioned. That said, I don't totally hate this scent or even dislike it. It's just, well, different than what I was expecting. Even though I called it a pepperbomb, it sits very close to the skin on me and does not overwhelm. It has a low silliage, but I feel that is intentional, as in it's the kind of scent where you need to be close to the person wearing it to become aware of its presence. This keeps it from being overbearing or garish. You won't have it 'hit you in the face' if someone were to walk by you wearing it. On me, it lasts a fairly long time, longer than I expected given it's relatively sublte silliage.

I think I'll have to wear it a few more times to see if this scent is a proper 'fit' for me. I like having something different in my collection, and though pepper is usually a dealbreaker for me, this one intruiges me in that it is so divergent from my usual tastes. I am not a fan of overtly floral perfumes, but I LOVE gourmande fragrances almost to the point of obsession. This lacks any sweetness to it whatsoever, and it's singulary feels almost 'fresh' to me, but that's b/c I'm so used to dousing myself in all things vanilla, musk, or amber.

So, in short (sorry for the ramblings!), this is a skin scent with a STRONG pepper bite to it. I don't hate it, but it isn't instant love yet, either. Perhaps with time, I will know if 'Erotique' is just another passing infatuation or a long term relationship type of scent...

Absolutely rank! Smells like walking into a leather shop and wrinkling your nose. I ll give Dita 'hats off' for going ahead with such a bold fragrance but this is seriously 'unerotique.' If you want sex in a bottle look to AP, especially rhe original or L'Agent.

Wow. Simply put: this is leather and sex in liquid form. Incredibly seductive, but not in your sensual and feminine way. It is seductive in the whips and chains/BDSM dungeon sort of way. Granted, this type of brazen scent isn't for everyone, but it is certainly something I find incredibly appealing. Bravo, Dita -- you've done the perfume form of unabashed eroticism perfectly.

It was love at first sniff. I also love Dita's first scent, but what I feel for this is almost obsession. I think it's the learthery undertone that seduced me. Beware though, after I bought the bottle I got carried away and well...it's not a scent to shower yourself with. Just like real eroticism does not equal shameless nudity wherever you go, this perfume works best for me when I use just a few drops to enhance my original body scent. What I also love about Dita's scents is that they instantly put me in a better mood with their warmness. This one is somewhat cosy too beside being sexy. It does nto smell like sex with a stranger rather then making love to a beloved partner, you know inside out.

I have just bought my very first celeb fragrance : Erotique !
When I read about the notes and some comments I felt that this was a scent worth trying. It was.
Even though Erotique does not live up to its name it is a decent woody spicy scent and perfect for the coming colder days.
What strikes me most : does anybody else notice the similarity to CdG´s Wonderwood ? Wonderwood once gave me bad headaches but Dita´s spicy perfume is OK for me.
Besides, I love the small bottle size (why can´t other brands offer 20ml bottles?) !
If you love heavy, spicy orientals and are looking for something positively weird in a rather inexpensive fragrance I recommend you to give Erotique a try. If you can do without the erotic mood which was promised and not kept this scent is a nice day-to-day fragrance for a reasonable price....and a quite cute bottle :-)

I hate it :( Which makes me sad because I've had great experiences with Dita's perfumes so far and I was very happy when I noticed this beautiful bottle. But the smell of this reminds me of stale laundry and beer. It's one of those that you hate from the first sniff. I've given it time but there's no chance I'll ever change my mind. I think it's horrible.

Sensuous is that you? No really, smells like the first phase of Estee Lauder Sensuous watered down with some warm milk.
It's lighter, less sweet and less luscious but still cozy and inviting. There's a honey/sandalwood combination that reminds me very much of the former and I think this could be worth a try for everyone who can't wear Sensuous because it's too heavy for them.
It's even suitable for the office in autumn and winter.
Erotique doesn't develop much but has a good staying power.
The first Dita fragrance I like so far.

Starts with a cigarette type of smokiness mixed with leather and some peppery spice. The dry down becomes much woodier (mostly cedar and some hints of sandalwood) but, the smoke and leather stay with it. I didn't get much rose at all. This might be my favorite of the line so far. I wish all celebuscents were half as good as this!

I can clearly smell the incense, pepper and leather in this. Somehow I can imagine Erotique as an x-rated version of Paco Rabanne Black XS :) Although I do enjoy this fragrance myself, I can imagine it's not for everybody. It's also very different from the standard flowery vanilla celebrity fragrances, but I think it's great that Dita chose to try something different!

There is NO leather in this. All I get is pepper and possibly musk. It totally disappears. What a disappointment. I was so hoping for something better from Dita von Teese. There is nothing erotic about this fragrance.

I'm officially intrigued by the main accords here, and even pleased by the golden bottle. Let's just say that I can hardly wait to smell what's inside!

( If Dita's designer could have left off the cutesy lock and key, this celebrity bottle would actually have been elegant..... )
