Eight & Bob

Albert Fouquet, the son of a Parisian aristocrat, was part of elite French society in the early twentieth century and a perfume connoisseur. An American student who was touring France in a convertible, John F. Kennedy, met Albert on the Cotes d’Azur and was captivated by the fragrance. JFK persuaded Albert to leave him a sample of his cologne.

On returning from his vacation, Albert received a letter from JFK in the U.S. thanking him for the kind gesture and informing him of the success his perfume was enjoying among his friends, which included the Hollywood elite. He requested that Albert send him eight samples, “and if your production allows, another one for Bob”. Albert labeled the bottles and boxes with John’s amusing request: “EIGHT & BOB”.

Unfortunately, the success of his cologne would not spread much further. In the spring of 1939, Albert died in an automobile accident. Decades later, thanks to the family of Philippe the butler, the formula for “EIGHT & BOB” has been completely recovered, along with its carefully crafted production process.
