About Eight & Bob
Eight & Bob is a brand with an illustrious history. During the 1930s Albert Fouquet, a great lover of fragrance, spent his time creating scents at the family chateauâ€¦ One night, during a summer vacation on the Cote dâ€™Azur, Albert met a young student who was touring in his beautiful convertible. The student was none other than John Fitzgerald Kennedy. JFK was captivated by Albertâ€™s fragrance and while Albert had thus far been reluctant to market his scent he was so charmed by the young American that he left a sample of his cologne at JFKâ€™s hotel with the immortal words: â€˜In this bottle, you will find the dash of French glamour that your American personality lacks.â€™ The fragrance was a great success with both JFK and his friends. He requested that Albert send him eight samples â€˜â€¦and, if your production allows, another one for Bobâ€™. Without fully understanding the request, Albert duly sent off the samples in a box labelled â€˜EIGHT & BOBâ€™. The rest, as they say, is history!
