Eight and Bob Original 1934 EDT

When American student John F. Kennedy met Parisian aristocrat Albert Fouquet on the Cotes d’Azur in the 1930s, not only was he charmed by the man, he was also intrigued by his hand-crafted scent. Upon his return to the US, JFK made a quirky request for eight samples — “and if your production allows, another one for Bob”.

EIGHT & BOB, as the cologne came to be known, was a hit with the Hollywood elite, but it would languish for decades after Albert’s tragic death in a car crash. WWII forced Fouquet’s loyal butler Philippe— the only other person who knew the cologne’s formula— to hide his final shipment of bottles inside books that he carefully cut by hand.

But EIGHT & BOB has returned. Based on its original formula, this bright, elegant cologne with the rare “Andrea” plant extract from the Andes. The Andrea species is a wild plant in short supply due to the altitude and limited area in which it grows, and can only be picked during the months of December and January. The plants gathered undergo a very exacting selection process in which only seven percent are chosen. This process ends between March and April and only then is it known how many units of EIGHT & BOB can be bottled for the year.

A fragrance with a history, EIGHT & BOB is a true perfume event. The bottle is hidden in a book, just as it was long ago.
