Combining classic elegance with contemporary, perfume house Eight & Bob is known for their timeless and extraordinary creations dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. An extraordinary journey that started with a one of a kind family story, shared over generations…
Albert Fouquet, a French perfume connoisseur and son of a Parisian aristocrat, was part of the elite French society. With the help of Philippe, the family butler, he crafted and refined essences in the family château for his personal use. It was during a warm summer night in 1937 on the French Riviera that fate brought him on the path of a young, American student touring France in a convertible: John F. Kennedy. In a matter of minutes, Albert’s fragrance had John captivated, prompting Albert to leave a sample of his fragrance along with a note at the hotel for Kennedy, stating: “In this bottle, you will find the dash of French glamour that your American personality lacks.”
Upon his return from his holiday, Albert received a letter from John in the United States, in which he thanked him for the fragrance and let him know that the fragrance was a big success among his friends. He eagerly requested Albert to send him eight samples, “and if your production allows, another one for Bob.” After finding the perfect glass bottles in a Parisian pharmacy and ordering boxes with the pattern of the shirt John was wearing when they met, Albert sent the box with samples to his American friend, labeled with his amusing request “EIGHT & BOB”. And so the perfume house began!
