Napolean’s favorite fragrance was eau de cologne. He used several bottles a day, likely to counter Josephine’s favorite scent, musk, which he hated. The Empress wore so much musk that servants in her over-perfumed boudoir often fainted.

Wow....... just wow....

First: bathing once a year was for the common folk, more if they lived near clean river. Napoleon probably could have bathed as often as he wanted.

Second: One of the reasons Napoleon was so successful is that he rode his horse around the battlefield and ordered his troops around instead of relying on messengers.
