grace coddington has launched a fragrance
The fashion visionary collaborated with Comme des Garçons on the feline branded perfume.
Throughout her career as a model and later as creative director of American Vogue, Grace Coddington has always had an affinity with fragrance. When she first started out as a model she wore Floris's classic Red Rose eau de toilette, when she worked at Calvin Klein she wore Calvin Klein, then Chanel No. 19 when she moved to Vogue, and later Hermés Rose Ikebana Hermessence Perfume. "My mother had a rose garden, and it just never occurred to me to smell like any other smell except rose," she revealed to American Vogue.
Now that she's taken a step back from Vogue, Grace has found a new fragrance, one that she teamed up with Comme des Garçons to create herself. A blend of peach blossom, white musk, amber crystal and, of course, Moroccan rose, presented playfully in a cat-shaped bottle, Grace by Grace Coddington is the new fragrance from one of fashion's finest visionaries.
