It just dawned on me that somewhere on he top of the list of scents universally loved by both men and women, throughout the world, and independent of culture or locale, HAS to be the scent of newborn babies. (well, after they are cleaned up at least)

Think about it.. the first thing most people do when they hold a newborn, is to press their nose close to the baby's body and get a good whiff of that baby-smell. Hell, it's one of those cliche comments every parent has to endure, too!

I dare say that new-baby-smell is superior even to the new-car-smell.

And there's already air-fresheners that make your car smell as new!

So how about a Baby-scented perfume? Think of the possibilities!

Tired of your kids? Spray 'm, and they'll smell just like new ones!

Guys, wanna REALLY impress your date? Spray some babyscent, and she'll think you're the cutest thing in the world!

It also works in reverse! Ladies, with this smell, you're sure to keep that hunk smothered all over you...

Hah, everything's better when it smells of baby. I bet you could even improve your love for your smelly dog!

       I actually smelled someone the other day who had a new car smell. (Couldn't tell who it was - the subway car was too crowded.) But the smell is not alluring, and I think new baby smell would have the same problem.   

       New car smell prompts you to want to jump in the car and drive away very fast, not necessarily the reaction you want in a date. New baby smell, hm, not sure what that one prompts, but I'm pretty sure it has more to do with changing diapers, and jumping into bed for some athletic sex is probably pretty low down on the list.

       Surely it would be better to make something that makes your baby smell like a new car?

       As a single guy that has gone out of his way to avoid fatherhood I can tell you that a woman who smells of baby and/or children is NOT a plus. For me. YMMV. Anyway [+] because it's a cute idea.

       Those newborn babies got the subliminal mind-control pheromones. I think spreading these pheromones around might have all sorts of behavioral consequences for men and women, most of them probably not what the makers of Night Musk are hoping for.

       I want a woman who smells of beer. And chocolate.
