Crème glacée, ice cream is usually just called glace (ice). Glaçage is icing; glaçons are ice cubes.
French ice cream is delicious, and comes in a hundred flavours, especially at a glacier (ice cream parlour). Invented in Italy by the great 16th-century Florentine Mannerist architect and engineer, Bernardo Buontalenti for a Medici feast, ice cream was first served in France by the Italian chef Francesco Procopio at Procope’s, the oldest restaurant in Paris, in 1686.
