Benedict: the fragrance for Him

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

A whiff of the Pontiff:
Benedict XVI now has his
own cologne
The slightly odd news of the day comes via the Telegraph, which reports that an Italian perfumer has developed a special brand of cologne for Pope Benedict XVI's personal use. Called "Water of Faith", the cologne is "infused with lemon tree blossom and the smell of Spring grass", with the aim of evoking "the German pontiff's love of the forests and animals in his native Bavaria, as well as peace and tranquillity".

Speaking to Italian newspaper Il Messagero, Silviana Casoli explained how she settled on the scent: "I realised that an essence like this had to have at its core something pure and clean, recalling the idea of peace. I thought of the smells the Pope would smell when praying at the Grotto of Lourdes."
