    Picture: The Pope's ... Cologne?! {updated}

    {updated 12:00am - see below}

    It claims - wait for it - to be the "Private Formula of Pope Pius IX." I'm not kidding.

    If anything deserved to be in Pope Pius IX's Syllabus of Errors - this is it!

    update: from (someone claiming to be) the actual manufacturer of the Cologne:
    I make The Pope's Cologne from the private formula of PiuS IX. It is an aristocratic, Old World cologne with surprising freshness. It isn't some joke like "Pope on a Rope". It provides an interesting look into the mid 19th century, a very important time in the history of the Church.
    At first I thought it strange that a pope would be wearing cologne but in my research, I found that it was very fashionable at the time for aristocrats to have their own perfumers compose colognes for them. And Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti was an aristocrat.
    It is really a nice aftershave and my three sons and I all wear it.
    I hope some of you readers may be able to enjoy it.
