21 Beautiful fragrances suitable for babies and children

Scent your little ones life with these alcohol-free perfumes, colognes and waters

Buying a scent for your baby may not be up there on your essential to-buy list along with nappies, wet wipes and bubble bath. But, it's definitely not to be sniffed at.

Just like fashion designers who produce perfume lines as a extension of its brand - children's fashion lines want in on the act too. And, why not?

Fragrance for kids - both boys and girls - is big business in Europe especially in France where scenting ones baby and child is seen as part of its daily beauty regime - and aren't we always looking for ways to add that certain Joie de Vivre spirit into our everyday?

An important thing to remember is that most baby fragrances and perfumes tend to be made up of water - meaning you're not exposing delicate skin to alcohol or other nasties. And, until the age of 3 they really are designed to be spritzed or dabbed onto clothing.

Meaning babies smell, well a little more like clean babies - and isn't that just a little more desirable than most baby smells? Plus, these lighter scents are perfect for you to wear too.

Especially if you're a mum-to-be who has gone off perfumes due to those inevitable hormonal changes; Or a new mum who wants to feel a little fresher when shower time is almost non-existent or, even as a softer alternatives to your usual scent which can help to create that 'safe smell of mum' to comfort baby at nap time (try dabbing on your scarf or on a muslin) means these colognes and eau de toilettes do double-duty.

So, why not awaken your little ones olfactory senses with a few of our favourites?
