Dolce & Gabbana Makes Perfume for Babies -- Because Yours Doesn't Smell Good Enough

baby smellDoes your baby stink like stank? If so, you're in luck, because Dolce & Gabbana just released a new baby perfume that promises to make your little one smell sweeter than, well -- a baby.

No, not a perfume that makes you smell like a baby (Love's Baby Soft already came up with that concept in the '80s), but a perfume that is designed specifically for your baby to wear, wait for it -- to enhance the way he/she smells.

Yes, seriously.

Wait -- it gets even more bizarre.


The company's press release on the product reads as follows:

This perfume is also inspired by the smell of a baby and is 'designed to cuddle and pamper every little boy and girl', which means it’s fine for delicate skin, is unisex, but ultimately, mimics the smell of a baby's skin.

Excuse me? It "mimics the smell of a baby's skin"?

Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but if the product was designed with the intention that babies would wear it to make them smell better, then how does a scent that smells exactly like they already smell have any sort of appeal?

I'm confused.

I know I'm not alone in admitting to sniffing the hell out of my son when he was a baby, because his scent was nothing short of sheer perfection. Oh, c'mon, does anything on the face of this earth smell better than the top of a baby's head? (Nope.)

And let's forget about how ridiculous the idea of spraying perfume on a baby is for a sec -- considering just how delicate their skin is, how can we be sure this perfume is actually safe for them? Sure, it's alcohol free, which is a plus, but I haven't been able to find a list of ingredients anywhere. I was cautious enough about which baby lotions and diaper creams I put on my son, so I can't imagine how parents feel good about dousing their bundle of joy in cologne.

Oh yeah, one more thing -- a bottle of this stuff will set you back $45. Forty-five bucks! To make your baby smell like a baby!

Sorry, I just can't seem to wrap my head around this one.

Be honest -- would you even consider buying baby perfume for your child?
