“I knew him as the man, David Jones, his real name, and not the rock star.”
David’s death surprised many as he had kept his battle with liver cancer mostly private from the public.
Now, as a tribute to her husband. Iman has released a new fragrance in ode to their relationship, called Love Memoir.
She described how she came up with the idea while grief stricken at the country home the couple shared in the mountains in upstate New York – a place she once said was too painful for her to visit following his death.
She continued: “I just got very sad and would rush back to the city. I thought I had processed [the loss] but I had not.”
Iman confessed that some days are harder than others to deal with the fact David is no longer here, but says not all memories have to be sad as she remembers how great their life was together.
When the couple’s 21-year-old daughter Alexandria ‘Lexi’ Jones questioned whether her mum would ever remarry, Iman said: “No, I will not. I still feel married.
“Someone a few years ago referred to David as my late husband and I said ‘No, he’s not my late husband. He’s my husband.'”
She went on to say that a nice sunset reminds her of the singer as he used to love them.
She finished by saying: “Through my memory, my love lives.”
In a random idea in the run-up to Christmas, shops are set to sell David Bowie Monopoly boards.
The Birmingham-based retailer, who also offers ACDC and Queen boards, aims to sell 70,000 rock Monopoly sets by December 25.
Owner Sri Anne, 45, said: “People love Monopoly at Christmas, but these versions are like turning the guitar amp up to 11. Music fans can’t get enough of them. They are great reinventions of a classic game.”
