“Go out and add yourself to Christopher Street. You will be enhancing one of the best fragrances I have tried in the last year.”
Very special thanks to Mark for sharing some of his own memories from his time on Christopher Street. Whether moments of solemnity or celebration, each story from Christopher Street helps reveal the sense of community that makes it so special to so many. This sense of community was such an important inspirational part drawn upon in crafting the fragrance. The true heart of the scent stemmed from people’s willingness and openness to share memories about Christopher Street with me, just like Mark .
