Description

Eight & Bob opens with fresh, citrus notes and a dash of French glamour, before unfolding into a warm base of spicy vanilla and amber accord. The soul of Eight & Bob is a rare and wild plant from the Andes; "Andrea" is in short supply due to the altitude and limited area in which it grows, and it can only be picked during the months of December and January. The plants gathered then undergo a very exacting selection process in which just seven percent are chosen, and only then it is known how many units can be bottled each year; making for a truly exclusive fragrance. The bottle is hidden in a book, just as it was long ago. Made in France.


Editor's Notes: The original Eight and Bob is a spectacular introduction into niche perfumery, for it cleverly creates an imaginative narrative, somewhere between fact and fiction. The contrast between dry woods and smooth, creamy vanilla adds a sizzling energy to this fragrance, lifted with a sketching of salty sea air. Eight and Bob is crisp and substantial, capturing a certain nonchalant elegance from a certain famous figure...

THE STORY

During the early twentieth century, Albert Fouquet, the son of a Parisian aristocrat and a perfume connoisseur, created and perfected various essences for his own personal use.

Whilst on his summer vacation in 1937, Albert met a young John F. Kennedy on the French Riviera and JFK became immediately captivated by the fragrance Albert wore. He requested Albert send him eight samples, "and if your production allows it, another one for Bob"

Albert was surprised a few months later when he began receiving letters from America with requests from various Hollywood directors, producers, and actors such as Cary Grant and James Stewart. Everyone wanted the “EIGHT & BOB” cologne they had apparently discovered through John's father, who had maintained relationships with well-known stars because of his previous business ventures in the movie industry.

Unfortunately, the success of his cologne would not spread much further. In the spring of 1939, Albert died in an automobile accident near Biarritz, France. Philippe, the only person who could handle the orders, would only continue with the work for a few months, since the start of World War II forced him to leave his job with the Fouquet family. In the final shipments, Philippe hid the bottles inside books that he carefully cut by hand to prevent the Nazis from seizing the cologne.

Decades later, thanks to the family of Philippe, the formula for EIGHT & BOB has been completely recovered, along with its carefully crafted production process. Once again, it has become one of the most exclusive colognes, preferred by the world’s most elegant men.

Another of my shortlist of great quality perfumes. Works fantastic in a professional setting and when going out. It’s unique and sophisticated but doesn’t make you smell like an old man. And it’s lasts!! The different notes in this scent take a few hours to show themselves so it’s a pleasure to smell how this perfume develops through the day!
