Chatting with the 'Queen of Burlesque', Dita Von Teese was most refreshing and uplifting. She is an honest, open book with nothing to hide. She knows herself well and is comfortable in her skin. She's hard-working, hands-on and multi-talented.

As we're about to celebrate Christmas, it seems that olfactory pleasures are more important right now than at any time of year, and it's been something I've been thinking about a lot of late. Just how much do we take our sense of smell for granted?
