Pope Benedict the Sixteenth is in Washington this week for meetings at the White House and to celebrate Mass in DC and New York. As always, people are clamoring to catch a glimpse, a wave or even a whiff of His Holiness.

In fact, there's a fragrance on the market right now - Pope's Cologne - that promises to give you the aromatic aura of Pope Pius the Ninth. Dr. Fred Hass is the man who resurrected this 19th century smell for 21st century customers, and he speaks with Faith Salie on Fair Game.
