SAN FRANCISCO, July 10, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Excelsis Fine Fragrances announced today that its newest cologne, Benedictus, is now available in the National Shrine Bookstore at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC. It is also available at their online National Shrines' Shops
The cologne was created expressly for His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. The marriage of linden blossom from his native Germany, frankincense from the Holy Land and bergamot from Italy, creates a fresh, subtle and dignified fragrance, befitting a man of finely cultivated tastes. A slightly astringent and balsamic quality makes it a soothing and refreshing aftershave.
In 2005 Excelsis introduced its flagship fragrance, The Pope's Cologne
, using the private formula of Pope Pius IX, and in 2007, Innocente, its first fragrance for ladies. Both are also at the store and online.
The store and the website offer an extensive selection of fine Catholic gifts and religious articles from around the world.
