"Home in three days, don't wash!"

Now, we've all heard this quote before. Supposedly, it was contained in a letter, written by Napoleon to Josephine after the battle of Merengo. I, for one, have never seen the source material proving it's existance, and knowing the emperor's aversion to odors, find it rather dubious. Does anyone know if such a letter does, in fact exist? If not, how did this quote ever get attributed to Napoleon?
