Eight & Bob
Eight & Bob fragrances are produced by a meticulous elaboration process using the most exclusive raw materials. A limited production of unique scents for both elegant men and women for everyday use. Albert Fouquet was part of the elite French society in the early twentieth century and a perfume connoisseur. One night during his summer vacation in 1937, Albert met John F. K. John was captivated by the essence that Albert wore. John's charm and congeniality persuaded Albert to leave him a sample of his cologne 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 enjoying among his friends. He requested that Albert send him eight samples, “and if your production allows, another one for Bob”. Without fully understanding the request, Albert decided to send a box with enough extra samples to offset the transport costs. His perfectionism extended not only to the perfume but everything surrounding it. He didn’t fill the order until Philippe finally found some beautiful glass jars in a Parisian pharmacy. Albert considered them suitable for his cologne and labeled them with John's amusing request: “Eight & Bob”. Decades later, thanks to Philippe, the only person who could handle the orders with Albert during the successful period before he accidentally passed away, the formula for “Eight & Bob” has been completely recovered, along with its refined production process. Once again, it has become one of the most exclusive colognes, preferred by the most elegant men in the world.
