|Le Labo's Ambrette 9 scent for baby's, £125, www.liberty.co.uk|
|Mummy's fave: Chloe eau de parfum|
Houbigant Quelques Fleurs L'Original - an old school French floral perfume updated by the centuries old brand once favoured by Queen Marie-Antoinette mixing orange-blossom, lilac, tuberose, amber and musk. The scent I alternate with
Chloe eau de parfum, a fresh, punchy oriental floral. My body lotion (used on hands too) is the delicious coconuty-scented Connock London Kukui oil. On my face I use Aromatherapy Associates Rose and Sandalwood facial oil so Evie must get a whiff when I hug or kiss her.
For Evie, I have been usingBamford's dreamy Baby Bath and Massage Oil. I'm also saving up for Le Labo's gorgeous smelling Ambrette 9 baby scent (above) which is sweet and light thanks to a combination of fruit and citrus ingredients (I love the fact I can get her name printed on the bottle!)
On a more mundane level, Evie is probably well acquainted with the smell of Persil non-bio, Sudo cream, Johnson & Johnson's baby soap (tried and trusted in the CLB household) and Dove deodrant.
Smells associated with daddy are more straight forward: Mitchum deodrant and Chanel de Bleu aftershave (thanks to mummy). They are all going in the diary. Who knows, she may even smile each time she walks past fish mongers in years to come - back in September on our family holiday to Portugal we spent lots of time in the local market buying amazing fish. Evie had such fun looking at all the funny looking sea creatures and being doted on by the Portuguese stall holders...
