Jane Krakowski‘s favorite fragrance? Baby.

“My new favorite smell is new baby smell. It makes me so happy. If someone could bottle that, I’d love to have it,”  the 30 Rock star — mom to son Bennett Robert — told reporters Thursday at Sephora’s Sensorium event in New York City.

“[I’m] kind of amazed sometimes, with some of the scents that come from my son,” jokes Krakowski, 42.

“It’s funny — when it’s your child, those things don’t smell bad.”

And Bennett, now 5 months, is meeting all his milestones. “He can poo, he can dribble and he’s teething, all right on target,” the actress says proudly.

Meanwhile Krakowski and fellow new mom Tina Fey are back to work on Season 5 of 30 Rock. And it must be going well — Says the star, “I smell syndication!”

Sam & Freya's mum on

She looks fantastic for having only had her boy 5mths ago and being in her early 40’s! I’m turning 40 end of next mth and wish I had that figure after having completed my family nearly 4 years ago now!!!

Love the new baby smell!

Marky on

I love her son’s name; classy and not some crazy name no one ever heard of. She looks great!

Mari on

She has the right sort of expectations of what a 5 month old should be doing – and best of all – appears to be enjoying it all.

She seems to be a wonderful mother.

Alyssa on

I totally agree. My daughter had the sweetest smell when she was a newborn.

Susan on

My son is Bennett, too. It’s an awesome name! Congrats to Jane.

She wants to bottle the “New Baby Smell” ??? Somebody beat her to it years ago, it’s called Johnson’s Baby Cologne. It’s been a long-known trick for men to use this stuff in VERY small amounts on thier clothing, it’s quietly known as “lady killer”. When women thinks a man smells great, they don’t realize it’s because they have this on very subtly under their regular cologne.

Lekili on

Johnson and Johnson make a baby cologne that smells just like a new born baby.

“classy and not some crazy name no one ever heard of.”

You mean you never heard of.

Paul on

He can poo? He can dribble? He’s ready for Hollywood.

Mermaid on

I doubt she had her baby naturally. I hate it celebs don’t admit all the struggles, and help it took for them to get pregnant.
