Benefit Maybe Baby Is Back and I’m Excited

Benefit Maybe Baby EDT

Benefit Maybe Baby Eau de Toilette is back in stock and I’m a happy girl! Thanks to Meg on Instagram who told me this today as I didn’t even notice. Now if Stila would bring back Creme Bouquet we could all be living our best smelling lives in quarantine! I also would not be averse to seeing B Spot return! I’d buy buckets of it thanks so much!

Benefit Maybe Baby started out life as Bathina which was a Benefit’s chic little bath and body collection. If you really want to take it back there was Benefit Kitten as well which I loved but the glory of Bathina’s pin-up girl was what really drew me in back in the day. Bathina didn’t technically have a fragrance. There wasn’t a perfume or an EDT at the time but there was a shower gel and a body cream. And later on, Benefit realized how much people loved it and ended up bringing back Bathina in a variety of other ways and one of the most popular products they launched was the Maybe Baby fragrance which was Bathina’s signature scent in a new perfume version. There was actually a Bathina All Over Mist as well which launched in Fall 2014 but the original Maybe Baby fragrance return in 2015 was very exciting! It stayed around for about year or so before disappearing into the Benefit beauty vault. The original Maybe Baby Fragrance launched in 2003 guys! 2003! 17 years ago! Where does the time go?

I don’t really like floral fragrances. I’m more a sweet make me smell like candy kind of girl! But Maybe Baby is a very clean, crystal clear almost aquatic floral. It contains fruity elements of apricot and peach but I find the floral notes dominate this fragrance and the white musk gives it a nice delicate dry down. It still remains a fond favorite fragrance for me and I was happy to see it return on Benefit’s website.

If it’s something you’ve always loved and wanted more of you can now purchase a bottle of Benefit Maybe Baby again on Benefit’s website. If you never tried it now is your chance to try it.

Who’s a Maybe Baby fan girl or guy?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I never tried it but reading your blog for so long has made me want to try it.

    I hope Ulta gets to carry it. Then I’ll be $32 closer to Diamond status.

    Yay! Thanks for the shoutout! I’m wearing Maybe Baby again today. I didn’t realize how much I truly loved this fragrance. One of my BF’s up in Chicago introduced me to it many years ago and I have forgotten about it over the years. Very happy it’s make as it makes me smile for sure.

    Oh, and I bought She Belongs There this morning; it’s a blind buy but based on your review, I couldn’t resist.

    Oh my! You brought back some forgotten memories. I used to collect everything Bathina and I believe I have a bottle of the OG Maybe Baby in my stash somewhere.

  • Priscilla

    Ohh I want to try this!! Do you think it’ll make its way to Sephora?

  • Brooke

    OMG Muse! Thank you so much for sharing this! I started wearing Maybe Baby in college (many moons ago). Anytime I didn’t have it on, my roommate would ask if I was feeling ok I got really lazy in grad school and was on a sort of beauty hiatus (ie minimal/no makeup, no perfume, lucky if I brushed my hair) which lasted years later. When I moved, I broke my bottle…it was the short, fat bottle it came in before the slender one. I was devastated because even tho I didn’t wear it, it became more of a nostalgic comfort piece that made me happy to look at (weird). I couldn’t find one in so long then finally found the slender bottle at some point…I still don’t wear it that often because I’m not super in to fragrance any more but I still look at it and think “that’s me in a bottle” I may have to get a new bottle while it’s back because I don’t even know how old mine is at this point

    I haven’t smelled this in years, but I still remember exactly what it smells like!! 2003 was right around the time I really got into makeup, so this has a nostalgia factor for me. I might have to buy it!

  • Michelle Luna

    Mmm, aquatic? I’ll have to go sniff this one out! Think Ulta will have it?

    • Isabella Muse

      Not as of yet but hopefully sephora and ulta will restock it soon!
