Baby cologne?

In the shampoo aisle at Babies R Us I spotted this, Johnson's Baby Cologne!

The thought of a baby wearing cologne kind of cracks me up. I picture a suave baby with sunglasses and gold chains, trying to pick up all the girl babies.

Who puts cologne on their baby? I can only assume it's a cultural thing. The label was in English and Spanish -- is it a Hispanic custom?

That is the weirdest thing I've ever seen! Why would you want to make your baby smell like anything other than "clean baby?"

It is very much a hispanic custom, so much so that just seeing an entry on it as a novelty cracked me up. I live in Miami, and almost all babies smell of Agua de Violetas- violet water- that gets dabbed on them after their bath. It makes babies smell delicious.

There's a number of baby perfume/cologne type products available in Europe, ranging from Johnson's to Guerlain and Burberry.

They smell fresh and lovely, and quite a few grown-ups wear them too. I love them in the summer.

Wow, I'm totally glad you mentioned this, because now I can remind my husband that I saw the exact same thing at my local Babies'r'Us and I wondered the same thing -- who does that?
