The Pope's Cologne
....a fresh new fragrance
from the past.
The Pope’s Cologne is
a classic Old World cologne made from the private formula of Pope Pius
IX (1792-1878). We obtained this formula from descendants of the
commander of his Papal Guard and faithful friend, General Charles
Charette. We have followed this complex, exclusive formula meticulously,
using the same essential oils that his perfumers used 150 years
ago. We believe that we have succeeded in capturing the same
fragrance that he and those around him enjoyed so long ago. This is a
truly extraordinary cologne with surprising freshness and notes of
violet and citrus. We are pleased that you will have the opportunity to enjoy this
wonderful, historic fragrance. It is an honor for us to be able to produce it
and make it available for your pleasure today.
