YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO STINK LIKE A POPE — 8 Comments

  1. I googled this; it appears to be a real concern – http://www.excelsisusa.com . The descriptions of these two colognes are hilarious:

    “Benedictus – The marriage of linden blossom from Benedict’s native Germany with frankincense from the Holy Land and bergamot from Italy creates a subtle and dignified fragrance, befitting a man of finely cultivated tastes. Barely perceptible is a nuance of citrus, and as it evolves, a discrete hint of musk. The overall impression is one of understated elegance. A slightly astringent and balsamic quality makes it a soothing and refreshing aftershave.”

    “The Pope’s Cologne – Aristocratic, Old World fragrance made from private formula of Pope Pius IX. A refreshing aftershave with notes of citrus and violet.”

    If you don’t want either of those, you can order the truly aptly named Camp 22! (“Camp 22 – like our old deer camp in the fall with dry leaves, dappled sunlight, a dusty road and a breeze off the lake, halcyon days and wondrous fragrances.”)

  2. As Joe commented: it probably smells of beer & kraut. Benny is, after all, Bavarian. 🙂
