From our friends at Criggo:
I was “inspired” to go to the Excelsis Fine Fragrances website where I learned:
The Pope’s Cologne is a classic Old World cologne made from the private formula of Pope Pius IX (1792-1878). We obtained this formula from descendants of the commander of his Papal Guard and faithful friend, General Charles Charette. We have followed this complex, exclusive formula meticulously, using the same essential oils that his perfumers used 150 years ago. We believe that we have succeeded in capturing the same fragrance that he and those around him enjoyed so long ago.
“… that he and those around him enjoyed” !
But, wait, there’s more. If you order the cologne, you get a free holy card of Pius IX. Doesn’t that just seal the deal?
