The delicate scent of a newborn is often an intoxicating aroma and apparently a strong source of inspiration for luxury designer brands.
Dolce and Gabbana plan to release a perfume for babies - an alcohol-free concoction which will sell for $45 per bottle, according to the Daily News.
The brand's co-designer Stefano Gabbana, who said the perfume is "designed to cuddle and pamper every little boy and girl," posted a picture of the new product on his Instagram account on Jan. 27, posing the question, "How can babies smell sweeter than they already do?" Apparently, with a splash of their infant cologne, which is a blend of melon, honey and citrus scents that can be dabbed on a baby's skin. The unisex fragrance, which does not yet have a release date, is housed in a sleek box and bottle, not unlike the various other packaging to come from the house.
Of course, keeping an infant tidy and changing their diaper regularly is also an effective way of maintaining the clean scent, a ubiquitous sentiment from those commenting on the Daily Mail.
"A totally unnecessary product," remarks one commenter on the Daily Mail. "Change its nappy," wrote another. Though, the goal of baby perfume is not solely to mask unpleasant odors, but also to enhance an infant's natural scent and appeal to parents who might want to wear the enticing aroma themselves.
