    Default Photographer Nigel Barker collaborates with Demeter on Signature Collection


    Nigel Barker is internationally renowned as a fashion photographer, as a judge on "America's Next Top Model", and now as the host of "The Face". Nigel draws all these threads together for the launch of the Nigel Barker Signature Collection of Fine Fragrances by Demeter Fragrance Library.


    These three extraordinary scents are inspired by Nigel's photography, capturing the energy and infinite possibilities NYC represents. Created with Demeterís unique approach to fragrance, which is grounded in the wonderful scents surrounding us every day, the first three fragrances from the Nigel Barker Signature Collection are drawn from different aspects of one of the great cities of the world.

    All the fragrances are linear, meaning they express their nature immediately, and do not change over time, despite their more complex construction and Eau de Toilette formulation.
    Nigel Barker - New York Nights
    Sexy Ylang-Ylang and Red Poppies, earthy and spicy Tobacco Leaves, sweet and sensuous Black Vanilla Bean, all offset with powdery Coca Petals, a touch of Cool Frost, and the clean finish of Vetiver.

    Nigel Barker - Times Square
    Using Tuberose, Neroli and Ylang-Ylang intertwined with lush, earthy notes of Patchouli and Vetiver, this fragrance is bursting with energy, but layered with depth and subtlety, capturing the quintessential strength and diversity that Times Square represents.

    Nigel Barker - Wall Street
    That image inspired us to use Wall Street as the masculine entry in the initial Collection, with a unique blend of Vanilla Bean, Black Peppercorns, Herbs and Oakmoss highlighted by intense Patchouli, and subtle citrus nuances. This is what Money should smell like.

    Not sure I see the connection between the notes and New York but you could say the same about Bond No. 9.

    Thanks for the info., furrypine - has anyone tried any of them?
    The only one of theirs that I tried didn't last at all well.

    Thanks for the info on these new scents.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Sounds like someone's never head of Bond No. 9 before, hahaha. Still, I'd like to try - interested in their linear composition. The Wall Street one in particular sounds like a decent combination of notes if it's not too sweet.
