Some of you already follow Elyse's fascinating blog Gillray's Printshop of Historical Absurdities and the rest of you has a very pleasant discovery to make.
The last updates have had a very Napoleonic theme to them, and I immediately thought of them when I rummaged through a drawer the other day.
I didn't find what I was looking for, but I found the Napoleon incense I bought in Krakow this summer!
That's right - Napoleon incense! Of course I couldn't pass it up.
So what does it smell like? Well, a great part of gun powder and Austerlitz, with a hint of Waterloo and Joesphine's unwashed body.
Or, to make a long story short:
Indeed not. We keep all our Very Important Papers in this drawer together with the incense sticks so they too smell like Napoleon. This amuses me a bit (in the pictures you also see a couple of miniature portraits of the late pope John Paul. He was born in a little village outside of Krakow so this is just the town for all your pope memorabilia needs. They had everything but T-shirts and ashtrays I believe).
