So I checked the newpapers today, didn’t happen to see any stories of pigs flying nor any about a snowball having its one chance in hell. Except for this little fun-fact. Well besides being a former Hitler Youth member (no joke), it seems that something doesn’t smell right to Pope Benedict XVI and no it is not the communion wafers. The man behind this “holier than thou” scent is none other than Silvana Casoli who has before worked with the likes of Sting and Madonna. Though unfortunately not for sale (d—!), the scent is reportedly infused with lemon tree blossom and the smell of spring grass.
Sources familiar with the apparent news had this to say:
“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.”
Now that’s all soft and pleasant sounding that he wants to be reminded of peace and tranquility, but come on guy. Is it just me or does anyone else think this is a slight waste of time to put energy in developing a cologne especially just for yourself? Personally I think the Pope should probably worry more about the countless stories of internal affairs in his own religion such as those molesting and raping young boys than coming out with a fragrance, but hey that’s me. Just sayin’.
