Since stepping down as the creative director of Vogue, Grace Coddington has been keeping busy. In addition to releasing two books, she's joining the beauty industry! The legendary editor is partnering with fashion house Comme des Garcons on a new fragrance, Grace by Grace Coddington.
Though we have yet to snag a sniff, there's one thing about the perfume that stands out to us immediately: the bottle. Fans of the iconic redhead know that she has a long-standing cat obsession, and she's immortalised the feline figure into this elegant flacon. In fact, that cat-eared cap is inspired by one of her own sketches.
According to Vogue, the juice is loaded with timeless notes like peach blossom and white musk, but the heart of the scent is amber crystal–spiked Moroccan rose. "My mother had a rose garden, and it just never occurred to me to smell like any other smell except rose," Coddington told Vogue.
Whether Coddington is your idol or you're a bona fide cat-lover, this scent is worth stashing in your collection. Snap it up when it hits counters very soon!
