I think I will never outgrow baby colognes, specifically Agua De Colonia. The timeless Spanish baby cologne is not only the epitome of freshness, but it also spikes some nostalgia in me every time I spritz it on: As the light mist touches my skin, it sends me back to my infant years, reminding me of my mother's touch, her heartfelt smile, and her faint words that I couldn't quite understand, but felt so comforting and reassuring. Until now, I still buy them and as of this writing, I have a couple in my room namely Nenuco, Tarte Tatine, and Gotas De Oro Clasica and Gotas De Oro, the green variant. (My ultimate favorite!) When I'm just staying at home, before I hit the sack, or if I don't want to smell anything like perfume, I use baby colognes.
The recent addition to my baby cologne collection is this one from Mustela from the Mustela Bèbè line. Mustela is a premium Spanish skin care brand specifically made for the ultra sensitive skin of babies and mommies, especially during the childbearing stage. The awesome thing about this brand is they have ultra mild, almost-chemical-free products, like this unique, alcohol- free cologne.

MUSTELA AGUA DE COLONIA SIN ALCOHOL IN DETAIL
What I like about this product is it comes in a light, easy-to-carry atomizer bottle. It's a little tall, but at least it's not as big and heavy as the bottles of traditional agua de colonias I know!
It has the classic Agua De Colonia scent, but its sillage is not as high as traditional baby colognes since it has no alcohol, the ingredient that dissipates the notes in a fragrance and-FYI- causes fragrant extracts in perfumes/colognes to evaporate quickly-it's the type of fragrance that sits closely to the skin and doesn't leave a wafting aroma in the air (not even a bit!) so if you prefer a cologne that commands attention or reminds you that you're wearing one, at the very least, I wouldn't recommend this. It just perfumes my skin lightly and lasts-amazingly-for an hour or two. In my experience, this is the only baby cologne that lasted long on me. Methinks the reason why it has great staying power is because of Castor Oil, which helps anchor the fragrant extracts onto the skin. I've also noticed that it yields a slight moisturizing effect.
When it's really hot, I sweat buckets of water (Continuously, mind you) and not long after, my skin develops prickly heat. I hate it when that happens because that means I can't use baby cologne, my instant freshener, as its high alcohol content will aggravate the itch and burn. This cologne is so mild that I can use it whenever I have that seasonal skin condition BUT--please don't think of it as a reliever or cure.
Overall, I highly recommend it as a gentle alternative to traditional baby cologne: You get the same scent, but sans the drying alcohol. It's probably the best cologne to use on newborns!
