Pope Benedict orders up his own personal cologne
Emperor Palpatine has now joined the ranks of Sting and Madonna in receiving his own personal fragrance from an internationally recognized perfume designer.

Quote:He is picky about his robes and his red shoes are tailor-made, but Pope Benedict has taken the meaning of bespoke to a whole new level by ordering a custom-blended eau de cologne just for him.

The fragrance, which mixes hints of lime tree, verbena and grass, was concocted by the Italian boutique perfume maker Silvana Casoli, who has previously created scents for customers including Madonna, Sting and King Juan Carlos of Spain.

Casoli said she had a "pact of secrecy" with her most illustrious client to date, and refused to release the full list of ingredients that had gone into his scent – but she did reveal that she had created a delicate smelling eau de cologne "based on his love of nature".

And anyone keen to smell like the pope will be disappointed. "I would not ever repeat the same perfume for another customer," Casoli told the Guardian.

Must be a special blend to attract altar boys.

Also good to see he is the embodiment of humility.

It's a good thing they didn't accidentally spend that spare cash on feeding more poor people! That was close!

A funny hat with my own scent
I say it's fact but it's pretend

Yeah, can't think of good lyrics, but sounds like a decent idea.
