About Grace by Grace Coddington

Grace Coddington, Adrian Joffe and Comme des Garçons Parfum have united to create the first fragrance from the trailblazing fashion editor: Grace by Grace Coddington.  The scent, developed by Comme des Garçons Parfum Creative Director Christian Astuguevieille, was inspired by Grace’s longtime love of roses. Fabien Baron and his team created the distinctive bottle, whose cap is a tribute to Grace’s not-so-secret love of her cats; the packaging showcases her original drawings.

Reviews of Grace by Grace Coddington

There is one review of Grace by Grace Coddington.
I generally dislike rose notes in perfumery. Especially when they lean towards the watery side of the spectrum (eg Amouage Lyric Man which is possibly my biggest fragrance nemesis ever) so I really didn't expect to like the new collaboration bewteen the iconic Grace Coddinngton and Comme Des Garçons. Well, as a matter of fact, Grace surprised me.

An extremely easy to like and very well refined modern rose with a fragile character. Pale, almost whispered but with enough personality to avoid falling into the "fragrance for people who actually don't like fragrances" cathegory. Agrees with white linens, torrid summer nights and walking barefoot but with that certain crystal / plastic quality to keep it urban. There's really not much else to say about Grace smell-wise as the frangrance feels really simple while completely avoiding feeling simplistic. I guess in this specific context we could easily refer to it as a succesful example of true minimalism.

It won't probably make the best starting option for those who are not familiar with this seminal brand yet, but if you're looking for something effortlessly elegant, Grace could really fit your bill.

As the Grace Coddington fragrance, I rank it very high. I believe it completely reflects her personality and style (they really nailed the brief here). As a Comme Des Garçons, I find it a minor release but surely one of their bests amongst their "easiest" launches. Definitely worth a shot. A few words of reference: Hermessence Rose Ikebana, Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rose, Comme Des Garçons 2.
