Back in 2009, I posted about The Pope's Cologne, a fragrance supposedly identical to that worn by Pope Pius IX. But I failed to mention what is perhaps the cologne's most interesting feature. It comes with a scratch 'n' sniff holy card. So if you ever need a little papal pick-me-up, just scratch the card and inhale the scent of Pope Pius.
