Catholic tourists have complained of tingling in the face after signing themselves with the holy water, sparking fears the sacred water could be toxic.
Cops raced to the famous Parisian cathedral on Saturday morning as churchgoers complained of headaches.
One priest, draped in his white robes, confirmed the tourists’ horror.
“It smelled especially bad, this water,” he said.
Looking up to heaven, he screamed: “What do you want!
“It is unfortunately an act of malice.
“They want to poison the world!”
The mystery of the “poisoning” has been questioned by locals as an act of vandalism, malice, the vengeance of a disbeliever or a bad joke of schoolboy.
But the mystery has remained just that.
Church bosses decided, for safety, to empty the holy water and bleach the basins.
Le Parisian reported: “The stone basins have been completely cleaned and filled with fresh water.”
Cops concluded there was no danger and a complaint was not filed.
