Eau de Pope: Cologne Designed Just for The Pope
the Pope smell good? That’s like asking the question whether he’s Catholic
– of course he smells good, thanks to a custom cologne developed just
The cologne is meant to reflect the German pontiff’s love of the
forests and animals in his native Bavaria, as well as peace and tranquillity.
It is infused with lemon tree blossom and the smell of Spring grass.
Ms Casoli, from Reggio Emilia in northern Italy, said it was hard
to come up with a scent that faithfully reflected the Pope’s personality
and theological outlook, and she nearly pulled out of the project.
"Then I realised that an essence like this had to have at
its core something pure and clean, recalling the idea of peace,"
she told Il Messagero newspaper.
"I thought of the smells the Pope would smell when praying
at the Grotto of Lourdes," she said.
