Pope Benedict Orders Up His Own Personal Cologne

Well, it appears the Pope is a real mister fancy-pants!  He has his very own cologne made secretly so you can’t smell like him. Do you think this scent sounds good?  I still want a beer made for me ‘David Drew Brew’.  Thinking a bright pilsner with a kick and proceeds could help St Jude.  Know a good brewer?


One of the most important religious figures in the world, Pope Benedict XVI, has now joined the ranks of Sting and Madonna in receiving his own personal fragrance from an internationally recognized perfume designer.

The Guardian reports that the religious leader appears to enjoy a second higher calling, that of high fashion. Italian boutique perfume maker Silvana Casoli acknowledges that she has created a custom-made cologne for the leader of the Roman Catholic Church at his request.

Pope Benedict reportedly already has his own tailor-made red shoes and matching panama hats, which the Vatican says are worn out of respect for papal tradition, rather than personal taste.

The custom-blended eau de cologne reportedly mixes the aromas of lime trees, verbena and grass, reflecting Benedict’s love of nature. But good luck picking up your own bottle, as Casoli has reportedly entered into a “pact of secrecy” with the religious leader. “I would not ever repeat the same perfume for another customer,” Casoli told the Guardian.
