Boy Smells and Jones come together to debut their limited-edition candle, aptly named ‘Grace’, a scent that embodies the beauties of fluidity. Ms. Jones, a champion and ally of the LGBTQIA community, has weaved between roles as a model, muse, singer, actress, and artist, all while simultaneously embracing masculine and feminine identities. This collaboration celebrates her boundless identity and subversive ability to transcend definitions while challenging preconceived expectations of her and her gender. Her unwavering commitment to authenticity has undeniably inspired this generation’s queer creators.
The collaboration between Jones and Boy Smells celebrates her impact. From the onset of this partnership, there was an instant synergy between both partners given their shared values of defying expectations and living in genderfulness. A term coined by Boy Smells, GENDERFUL acknowledges that everyone’s full spectrum of self combines aspects of masculine and feminine, unique to the individual. It is Boy Smells’ mark of inclusion that goes beyond the binary. The Grace candle is a monumental collaboration for Boy Smells, and marks the first time Jones has partnered with a candle brand.
Grace has always been counted amongst Boy Smells’ greatest muses. Never did we expect to get the opportunity to work with her directly. For us, she is one of the original gender revolutionaries. Her defiance to bend to the expectations of others makes her the perfect ambassador of our genderful values. — Matthew Herman, Co-Founder and Creator of Boy Smells
Perfectly embodying Jones’ own profound statement, I feel feminine when I feel feminine. I feel masculine when I feel masculine. I am a role switcher, this scent also defies definition. A hand in hand collaboration between Jones and Boy Smells, it was created to reflect both Jones’ legacy as a crusader in the realms of queer culture and also a love letter to her home country of Jamaica. The scent includes notes of salty musks, wet stones accords, black peppercorn, and robust accord of Jamaican flora.
