france euro 2016 stampIt is not the first time La Poste has produced a fragrant stamp – there was previously one smelling of chocolate – but the stamp, which goes on sale on April 2, also has several other new aspects to its design:

• Although it is presented in a square, the stamp is actually round – like a football – once pressed out according to the perforations

• The perforations include 24 in the shape of stars, representing the 24 teams in the competition 
• The football on the stamp stands out in relief from the surface of the stamp

• The trophy is done with a special silvery ink which gives it a metallic shine
