What are baby colognes?
As the name suggests, baby colognes are meant for babies and are used to make them smell nice and fresh. What sets them apart from regular perfume is that these products are formulated to be non-toxic and mild, making them perfect for those who don't like strong perfume scents or have more sensitive skin. Some of baby colognes' most common scent profiles are sweet and floral, often mixed with powdery, citrus, and lavender notes.
