It's been nearly six years since the world lost rock and roll genius David Bowie when he passed away at the age of 69. While it has taken his 66-year-old widow until now to properly grieve his loss, she still feels his presence and considers him her husband. Although their love story was fairly private, Iman recently told PEOPLE, "David said it was love at first sight." She added, "It took me a few months but I got there." The two met on a blind date that was orchestrated by their mutual friend in Los Angeles. At the time, Bowie had several hits like Ziggy Stardust and Space Oddity under his belt while Iman was a supermodel from Somalia, whose beauty and intelligence had bewitched the world of fashion.

There was no one cooler than the dazzling pair, who exchanged marital vows on June 6, 1992, in Florence, Italy. They soon welcomed their daughter Alexandria, and Bowie just loved walking her home from school. Iman saw part of the singer that no one in the world did. "I knew him as the man, David Jones, his real name, and not the rock star," shared the CARE global advocate. Now, years after her husband's death from cancer in 2016, she has paid a tribute to their "epic romance" by creating her first fragrance, Love Memoir. Apparently, the idea came to her when she was living at their country home situated in the mountains in upstate New York.
