The Pope's Cologne
It's sure smellier than a commemorative T shirt....In honor of Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the U.S., an Ohio company that markets products from monasteries is selling The Pope's Cologne. Sales are "off to a good start," reports Will Keller, a spokesman for Monastery Greetings. The cologne was actually dreamed a couple of years ago by a San Rafael, Calif., doctor, Fred Hass, who copied a cologne recipe he found in the back of a old cookbook that claimed to the private formula of Pope Pius IX (1792-1878). One reviewer has praised the cologne's "floral notes" and its "ancient charm." With Benedict's visit to the U.S. Haas has been trying to think about a way to get him a bottle of the stuff. "He'd probably get a kick out of it," said Haas. "He's a good guy." But forget about buying it during the papal Mass at Nationals Park. The archdiocese says it won't sell it.
