Baby Perfume: Stinks or Sellable?
Love, Chic Baby is cologne and perfume for babies. The company says on their website that they have made "the first pair of luxurious fresh scents designed exclusively for little girls and boys, and for those who want to pamper them." It's unclear how spraying a child with perfume is "pampering," but hey, different strokes for different folks.
The product comes in two versions: "Coco" for girls and "Momo" for boys. Coco is "a calming, airy fragrance" with "a soft bouquet of pink mandarin, Italian bergamot, water lily, pink peony, yellow freesia, island pineapple, and sheer rose," according to the company. Momo's scent "tickles the sense" with a mix of "mandarin, orange, pink grapefruit, wild strawberry, sweetheart melon, and dewberry." None of which sound terribly masculine. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.
At first glance, this seems like yet another wacko baby product, like last year's Heelarious, fake high heels for infants. On the other hand, many baby products are scented. So this one isn't really all that different. Except that this particular baby product has only one purpose -- to mask the stench of your kids.
Would you buy this for your baby? Or is it just plain silly?
