Hey there Posse. You may or may not know but Musette swears by an incredibly budget 1970s powder bomb. It’s come up a few times over the years. I was always a little side eye about it. There is an ugly snob living inside me that sometimes rears its head, often to hilarious results. Anyway……. Last time Loves Baby Soft was mentioned she said men go crazy for it. At that time I was just finishing up a little order from FragranceX and added myself a bottle of aforementioned perfume.
The early Loves Baby Soft advertising was basically a pedophiles dream come true. It’s creepy AF. There’s whole reams of online ranting about how awful it is. They did get older, but not much, girls in later commercials.
Loves Baby Soft by Dana
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Musk, Lavender, Vanille, Rose, Geranium, Jasmine, Patchouli
OK, so it’s cheap, from the 1970s and had some terrible ad campaigns. I’m down with all of that. Let’s see how it smells and if it derives men wild when I wear it…
First wearing was a bit of a disaster. I could feel the rumble of a headache but ignored it as I spritzed with abandon. NOT GOOD! Within 20 minutes I was desperately reaching for the headache tablets for what felt like sinus pain. I tableted and steamed my schnoz. By the time I was back to feeling like a human being the fragrance was a pillow soft floral musk, nothing special or very interesting but pretty.
Not to be deterred on Saturday evening Jin was watching Korean TV and I decided to give Loves Baby Soft another chance.
The opening bursts super sweet to me. Like rose water dipper musk lollies. I even get a bit of a teens candy flavoured lipgloss vibe. It’s not that fairy floss of the nineties onward but something like it, a general feeling of fluffy sugar. for some reason I keep expecting to get a surprise sensual whack of dirty patchouli and animal musks but it never appears. Just this lovely powdery, fluffy, sweet scent.
I like it. Jin totally ignored it. I’d really like to wear Loves Baby Soft out in the world. If that happens, and it’s a successful outing, I’ll report back.
Have you? Would you? Do you ever wear Loves Baby Soft?
