The luxury fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana
(D&G) will soon sell a perfume for babies. The new fragrance will be in 50-ml bottles and will have a price tag of $45 dollars. D&G spokesperson said the new scent is, ''designed to cuddle and pamper every little boy and girl''.
D&G boss Stefano Gabbana asked people on the website Instagram
: ''How can babies smell even sweeter than they already do?'' His answer is a mix of honey, melon, orange and some secret ingredients. Gabbana explained how he made the fragrance. He said it smells like, ''The softness of baby skin, the freshness of baby breath, a mother's sweet hug, and the first smile.''
While the new fragrance will increase D&G's profits, childcare experts are questioning the need for babies to wear perfume. They also hope parents will use their common sense. Baby doctor Sandy Tomkins said a baby's skin is very delicate and sensitive. She warned that any product used on it must be 100% safe.
She added: ''The last thing a mother wants is for her little one to smell nice but then have a nasty red rash.'' Skin doctor Jose Fernandez warned of soreness and irritation.
