Strange, but true: Pope Perfume

From The Daily

Smells like Holy Spirit.

Pope Benedict XVI is getting his own perfume, a creation of scent-maker Silvana Casoli, who has also worked with Madonna, Sting and King Juan Carlos of Spain.

“I thought of the smells the pope would smell when praying at the Grotto of Lourdes,” Casoli said of her inspiration for the perfume.

The fragrance includes scents of lemon tree blossoms and newly grown grass, meant to represent his love of forests and animals in his native Bavaria, as well as intangibles such as peace and tranquility, Casoli said.

However, those hoping to douse themselves with a little eau de pape are out of luck. It is only for His Holiness’ personal use and won’t be for sale, she said.

I wonder what it will be called: Pontiff Perfume, Eau de Pope. Will he actually wear it?
