Eight And Bob
Brand Eight and Bob
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.

I liked this fragrance, but nothing spectacular. Office scent worthy but nothing that will catch attention
Very sweet but not too sweet. Fresh classic smell but also very modern. Haven’t come across anything like it
Very clean and nice
It smelled of a rather luxurious ride in air force one, sipping down expensive scotch from a tumbler with one ice cube and a flight attendant on your lap lighting a big stogie for you
This was unique in the smell, similar to Tom Ford's Gray Vitener (which is a good thing). A very clean smell, best suited for late spring or summer. 3 or 4 stars for me due to its strong start before dry down. During the first 2 or 3 hours it hangs in your nose if you put it on your neck. I will try again but use it lower on my torso, around lower chest area and spray on to my clothing.
