What’s That Heavenly Scent?

Just barely in time for Christmas, a California doctor has recreated the cologne worn by Pope Pius IX way back in the 19th century. Why? Because stamp collecting didn’t interest him, apparently. Dr. Fred Hass says the scent, which he concocted using a recipe he found in a limited-edition 1963 cookbook, is “surprisingly fresh, with notes of citrus and violet.” No frankincense? No myrrh? He has 2,000 bottles sitting in his garage for sale — shock! incredulity! — which he’s trying to sell. Move over Beyonce, Pius is here!
