Grace by Grace Coddington

We're like cats on a hot tin roof over Grace Coddington's first fragrance for Commes des Garçons... Here kitty kitty!

BY AMY BRADFORD

The dream team of Grace Coddington (Creative Director at Large of American Vogue), Christian Astuguevieille (Creative Director of Comme des Garçons Parfum) and Fabien Baron (art director par excellence) has produced 'Grace by Grace Coddington', the flame-haired fashion icon's first fragrance. Inspired by her lifelong love of rose scents, it features notes of bergamot, mint, basil, cardamom and musk as well as Moroccan blush rose. 'I've experimented with everyone else's version of rose, and even got sidetracked by some others along the way,' says Coddington. 'Now I've arrived back at the point I first started, with rose, except this time, it's my rose.'

To be frank we are almost more entranced with the bottle than the juice itself, sporting as it does a perfect pair of kitty ears on the cap (it's no secret that Coddington is an out-and-proud feline obsessive). We think it's the cat's meow...
