Yves Saint Laurent has launched (or re-launched — this might be the second edition) Baby Doll Magic, a limited edition version of Baby Doll:
Spray Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll and it becomes a love potion…a light, happy, and floral-fruity fragrance. An irresistible harmony of notes as fresh as a bouquet of flowers and as sparkling as a kiss. Try a little touch of Babydoll…it's love at first spritz.
This special, limited-edition bottle features the signature faceted crystal bottle shaped like a spinning top, with sweet, romantic graphics and a silver stopper.
The notes include pink grapefruit, passion fruit, passion flower, fresh jasmine and musks.
Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Magic is available in 50 ml Eau de Toilette. (via sephora)
they're pinkifying the pink ! *LOL* that's megapinkification :))
These bottles remind me of a toy I had in my childhood, it has to spin and spin for as long as possible.
Megapinkification — LOL!!!
Yep, it's meant to look like a spinning top.
Definitely one for the glossary… needless to say, this does not give me a case of Zombie Arms.
No zombie arms here either. But you know — I can't remember the difference between YSL Baby Doll & YSL In Love Again. One of them I kind of like, but who knows which.
Robin, I bet it is YSL In Love Again for that one resembles Un Jardin Sur Le Nil somehow and both perfumes are designed by JCE ,,,,
Does anyone else think “give me a break” on reading the name and seeing the bottle? Nothing about it pleases me esthetically. Perhaps it smells great, I don't know. But I think I would be ashamed to have this on my dresser and be over 12 years old.
babydoll is really girly and very very pink. it has more grapefruit and i guess passionfruit w/ a cedar-y (in my recollection) base that goes for hours and hours. in love again, is its slightly older sister. less pink, but not by much. plus i get a slight DEET (mosquito repellent) note from it straight through. gives it a little weirdness.
Haha, from the picture, the bottle looks suspiciously like My Insolence. What is with that flyer saucer shape and ridiculous pink that's so appealing? I don't understand.
You're probably right.
Aha…now am I crazy, or am I remembering that they're vaguely related? That maybe In Love Again was supposed to be the more sophisticated version of Baby Doll? Or maybe I'm dreaming. Must get to a YSL counter I guess.
I'm sure it's geared towards a pretty young audience, but the bottle doesn't bother me except for that cap. Could live w/o that cap.
LOL — is it Perfumes: The Guide that likens the Insolence bottle to a stack of dirty dishes? Whomever said it, it stuck in my mind.
that is so true! YSL ILA is more sophisticated, less powdery on finish than baby doll. both have the effervescent grapefruit notes, but YSL ILA always gets me comments, as it's more fresh and less sugary than Baby Doll.
i'm way over 12 yrs old and i love the name! and i would love to have this on my dresser although i don't like the baby doll fragrance very much. Regression, folks…. “kidults”…. etc
In Love Again is the 40 year jubileum fragrance of YSL. And that was the year 1998.
Baby Doll was launched in 1999 and had nothing to do with In Love Again, just a new fragrance.
I had a Barbie perfume that resembed the Baby Doll bottle.
Honestly, what kind of grown woman wants to wear something named Baby Doll? What's next? Diapered Dame?
Oop, meant no offense, Cinnabon.
I probably wasn't clear — I wasn't claiming they were “officially” related, just that I've always heard they're similar & the ILA was more sophisticated.
Finally looked up my own testing notes — duh! — and apparently I have never smelled Baby Doll. ILA was too sweet for me, so if BD is sweeter, almost no chance I'll like it
Diapered Dame! Love it.
I am imagining the notes – a strong civet, overshadowed by powder, accompanied by tobacco (for the “dame” part).
Oh dear, I just ate…
I love this YSL because it is flirty and young at heart I am almost 49. I love BD. I love the freshness, the unique bottle, the first spray of the grapefruit and passion fruit that mingle and make me feel optimistic and *youthful*. I love how it changes into a soft floral, freesia I believe, in the original –and just a hint of warmth.*and* I get tons of compliments. There is a stripper bar here called Babydolls, but I don't think any one there is 12.
No, it's not a very sophisticated fragrance, but it is a cult favorite. And I love the pet name “Baby Doll' especially when I'm feeling cuddly. It reminds me of Benefit's Maybe Baby. I have expensive niche frags. and commercial ones. Baby Doll is probably my 2nd favorite.
I guess I'm the bull in the china shop-Oh well,
-Petite Cheri everybody
Glad you showed up to defend your favorite!
If it really is sweeter than In Love Again (do you agree?) then it isn't going to be my favorite, but totally agree that there is no reason to stop wearing ANYTHING because of your age — everybody should wear what makes them happy.
I have never tried In Love again. Anymore when I get my Sephora sample, more likely than not I take a whiff and think,”Eeooh fruity!”
I gasp, somehow I have been converted. I'm, I'm, becoming…eek! –discerning.
Baby Doll came out around the start of The Great Fruit
Rush, and I became addicted. If I smelled it now I might dismiss it out of hand. Not that there's anything wrong with fruity scents. But I see now that they are ubiquitous.
Hey, I have several fruity favorites — agree there's nothing wrong with them, if only there weren't quite so many of them.
This is weird (or maybe not) but YSL Baby Doll and Burberry Brit Summer for Women smell so very much alike!.. scandalous ..;D.
Checked osmoz.fr and the notes are very similar too, no wonder.
Nice summer scents but nothing unique.
