I agree with the author - no big deal - isn't that what all the sented baby washes really are anyway. Besides you know what my baby smells like if I dont use scented washes - cheese!!!

Beats the smell of sour milk spew that mine end up with otherwise I guess.
I do tend to prefer a gentle unscented goats milk soap. Does the job, not sure I'd use an expensive perfume because well, it'll end up smelling like puke soon enough.
Darn chucky babies.

I think it's stupid.
But good on the designers for coming up with an extra way to fleece the people. That's how they get rich after all.

Petit Enfant has had a eau de toilette out in their baby skincare range for years (i think i might have a bottle laying around somewhere that came in a pack i was given). honestly it isn't something i would use (hence the unopened bottle here), but if it isn't causing any harm i can't see the issue with it (to each his/her own blah, blah, blah)

I agree with the comment from the article below.
"There is a big difference between practical baby products being scented and perfume for babies. What could make a better gift? Oh just about anything else - a nice baby blanket, a cot set, clothes, babysitting.
Of course a beauty editor has no problem in rich fashion houses exploiting new mothers with another unnecessary baby product as she would be out of a job if superficiality was unimportant."
I would also be wary of any unnecessary chemicals and have always just used soap and water for my great smelling babies

Having it available isn't forcing anyone to buy it. I wouldn't use it.

I wouldn't use it,
But I think it's no different to all the other baby stuff on the market with no real purpose other than a indulgement of the parents.
Like shoes for none walkers?
Never understood that, especially expensive little nike runners ect.
