The most exclusive perfume created by Albert Fouquet exemplifies chic sophistication.
Designed for both men and women alike, this classic scent is suitable for a modern-day aristocrat. Rosy notes of Pink Pepper blended with the subtle spice of Cardamom and garnished with the zesty hint of Lemon, evoke a contemporary tone; while notes of Labdanum emit an intricacy reminiscent of the sweet, fruity, woody aromas of twentieth century Paris. Amber and Sandalwood undertones accentuate the warmth of this refined scent.
The story behind the scent: One night during his summer vacation in 1937 on the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur), Albert met and got on very well with a young American student who was touring France in a convertible: John F. Kennedy. Within minutes of being introduced, J.F.K. was captivated by the essence that Albert wore. John’s charm and congeniality persuaded Albert to leave him a sample of his fragrance with a note at the hotel the following morning:
“In this bottle, you will find the dash of French glamour that your American personality lacks.”
On returning from his vacation, Albert received a letter from John in the U.S. thanking him for the kind gesture and informing him of the success his perfume was having among his friends. He requested Albert to send him eight samples,“and if your production allows, another one for Bob”.
EIGHT & BOB eau de toilette for men is definitely a fragrance with a history. The story begins in the early years of the twentieth century and encompasses the south of France, the Chilean Andes and the U.S., the French aristocracy and a young Harvard student who would later become the most powerful man of his time: John F. Kennedy.
This gem of a fragrance has now been rescued after more than 70 years of lying forgotten. The formula created by Albert Fouquet remains intact and EIGHT & BOB have invested more than three years work in meticulously recovering other elements such as the bottle and packaging. Like a restoration project on a long-forgotten work of art, some of the best perfumers today have worked to ensure that EIGHT & BOB remains faithful to the spirit of its creator.
