Nigel Barker Launching His Own Perfume, Because Sure (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We mourned the day when Tyra Banks rocked the boat that is "America's Next Top Model" and gave judge Nigel Barker the boot. What would we do with the smooth-talking, smooth-headed noted fashion photographer in our lives?

Thankfully, Barker heard our pleas and is sticking around... with a fragrance. Women's Wear Daily reports that the photographer has partnered with Demeter Fragrance Library to launch the Nigel Barker Signature Collection of Fine Scents, which will include three different perfumes.

The fragrances are all New York-themed: New York Nights, Times Square and Wall Street. "People come to New York and want to capture that moment in time," Barker told WWD of his urban inspiration. "I tried to recreate that feeling in the scent." (Hopefully he didn't literally try to bottle real New York smells.)

We'll admit that a Barker-branded fragrance sounds out of left field, but WWD notes that Barker's wife Cristen is actually a makeup artist. The couple will also be launching two cosmetics collections along with the fragrance, all of which will drop in 2014.

But a celebrity fragrance from a photographer is still a bit... random. Tyra Banks might have her own perfume, but we never really expected the "Top Model" judges to get into the scent game.

Will you buy it?
