They say nothing smells better than a newborn baby. While not many can fully explain what exactly makes babies smell so good (some claim it’s some amniotic fluid residue or pheromones that enhance the bonding between parents and their infants), one thing’s for sure: It’s an absolutely intoxicating scent!
One thing that might help explain it though is—surprise, suprise!—baby cologne. While some of the classic ones like Nenuco and Baby Bench never fail, some parents love to indulge in something truly luxurious and sumptuous. It's for their precious little ones, after all! And to be fair, these fragrances aren't strictly for your baby's pleasure—if you want, you can totally share it, too.
Ahead is a list of alcohol-free, sensitive skin-safe luxury baby fragrances that smell so good that even you’ll want to wear it yourself.
