It is the gay man that got me curious, troubled by ordinary grief and haunted by joy, a man apart and yet like any other; Followed by numbness, routine, sorrow and perhaps another kind of awakening. It is a fragrance based on a variety of woody notes such as violet wood, cashmere wood, mahogany and cedar wood; that reflects the man who constructs or reconstructs a personality to bear the weight of loss, and whom society will not permit to grieve. ? MARK BUXTON, perfumer What We Think Humming with restrained intensity, Single Man features a rich accord of dry, resinous woods and dark spice, freshened slightly with a semisweet, oily citrus note. It’s a quietly powerful scent for those who don’t want to fill the room but still want to make a statement.
