As the creative director at large for Vogue Magazine, Grace Coddington created some of the most talked about photoshoots in the world. And even though she broke some hearts after announcing her retirement at the start of 2016, we now see that she's been keeping busy and working with some of her favorite felines in the process.

This week it was announced that the former model is releasing her debut fragrance on April 19th. Grace by Grace Coddington is part of a collaboration with Comme des Garçons Parfum and will be sold exclusively through Dover Street Market and her newly launched website. In fact, anyone in or around the Big Apple on April 20th is encouraged to head over to 160 Lexington Avenue between 5-7pm for a special bottle signing hosted by Grace.

Two of her favorite things in the world helped inspire the creation of this fragrance: roses and cats! I know that sounds like a weird combo but I can't think of a prettier bottle to add to my collection than this one. Katy Perry (or is it Purry?), you may have done the kitty bottle first but Grace did it purrfectly. She even added some snazzy original kitty drawings to the packaging.

1, 2, 3...AWWW! Yes, I too love cats and have two of my own #thankyouverymuch

Comme des Garçons Parfum Creative Director Christian Astuguevieille found inspiration for the scent in Grace's longtime love of roses. "It was a pleasure to collaborate with Grace--- she's a true visionary, and from the outset had a very clear and distinct concept of what this perfume should be," Astuguevieille said. I'm delighted to have played a role in its creation."

My birthday is not until September but I must purrrchase this bottle right meow.
