/ -- Excelsis Fine Fragrances announced that the cologne/aftershave created to honor the papacy of Pope Francis will be available for sale during the Pope's visit to the United States.
Called simply, "Francis," this newest papal fragrance was created in response to a groundswell of requests from customers of The Pope's Cologne, Excelsis' flagship product, which honors the late 18th Century Pontiff, Pope Pius IX.
A second popular Papal cologne, Benedictus, honoring the current Pope Emeritus, was introduced in 2006.
Francis is smooth and fresh with a citrusy top note of bergamot and a soft, woody drydown of sandalwood.
Mildly astringent and cooling it is an exceptional aftershave.
It will be available for sale at the National Shrine Bookstore in Washington DC, The Baltimore Basilica Gift Store in Baltimore and other select Catholic stores throughout the country.
It may also be purchased online at www.ExcelsisUSA.com
, at Amazon and several other sites.
It makes a wonderful gift and memento of Pope Francis' historic visit.
