I always thought the stage where the bambino would nick my perfume, raid my cosmetics bag, and help herself to my clothes was a few years off, but alas, the curious, light-fingered tot keeps handling my stuff, and she is particularly drawn to perfume bottles (and lip gloss…). So when I received a bottle of Mon BÃ©bÃ© perfume, a scented water that contains natural extracts to promote sleep and well-being, my cosmetics heaved a sigh of relief!
Made in France where the baby perfume market is pretty big (well babies come out of the womb chic over there…), it’s hypoallergenic, alcohol-free, and has been dermatologically and clinically tested so it’s suitable from birth.
The scent is delicate, fresh, and a little musky and can be used on either sex. It’s a combination of vanilla, with notes of chamomile, mandarin, and natural plant extracts like hawthorn, lime-tree, and centauree which are associated with promoting peaceful sleep, relieving anxiety, and soothing tummy-aches.
The bambino helped put a little on her wrists this morning and then we pretended to be French where I sprayed the perfume and she stepped into it, so her Smafolk dress had a subtle, baby-ish smell as she wafted around. You can also spray a hairbrush to lightly scent their hair.
Mon BÃ©bÃ© perfume comes in a drop shaped bottle and you can actually see little particles of the plant extracts which disappear when you shake it. Available from Boutique to You for Â£24.99, I imagine that these are going to become a popular gift choice.
