Sting, Madonna … Pope Benedict XVI?! That’s how perfumer Silvana Casoli’s resume reads.
The so-called “nose” has created a scent just for His Holiness. And although Casoli has previously concocted scents for the Catholic church (“Water of Hope” and “Water of Faith”), this new scent will be exclusive to Pope Benedict. The UK Telegraph says that the fragrance will smell like lemons and spring grass and will reflect the Pope’s “love of forests and animals, as well as peace and tranquility.”
This is one “celebrity” fragrance you can’t buy, so at least we’ll be spared the usual barrage of endorsement commercials! And we’re pretty confident the pope won’t pull any crazy publicity stunts. It does seem, however, that every public figure has a fragrance deal these days — check out some of the most bizarre perfumes ever in our slideshow above (or just browse more celebrity perfumes).
