Eau de Parfum

Albert Fouquet, the son of a Parisian aristocrat, was part of the elite French society in the early twentieth century and a perfume connoisseur. In a room on the upper floor of the family chateau, Fouquet created and perfected various essences for his own personal use aided by Philippe, the family butler. At social events he would surprise everyone with an exquisite fragrance that became increasingly in demand within the exclusive social circle he frequented. However, Fouquet continually rejected proposals to market his fragrance.

One night during his summer vacation in 1937 on the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur), Albert met and got on very well with a young American student who was touring France in a convertible: John F.K. Within minutes of being introduced, JFK was captivated by the essence that Albert wore. John’s charm and congeniality persuaded Albert to leave him a sample of his cologne with a note at the hotel the following morning: 

 "In this bottle, you will find the dash of French glamour that your American personality lacks."

On returning from his vacation, Albert received a letter from John in the U.S. thanking him for the kind gesture and informing him of the success his perfume was enjoying among his friends. He requested that Albert send him eight samples, “and if your production allows, another one for Bob”.

Without fully understanding the request, Albert decided to send a box with sufficient samples to offset the transport costs. His perfectionism extended not only to the fragrance but everything surrounding it. He didn’t fill the order until Philippe found some beautiful glass bottles in a Parisian pharmacy that Albert considered suitable for his cologne. Finally, he ordered several boxes decorated with the same pattern as the shirt that JFK was wearing when they met, and then labeled the bottles and boxes with John's amusing request: “EIGHT & BOB”. 

Albert was surprised a few months later when he began receiving letters from America with requests from various Hollywood directors, producers, and actors such as Cary Grant and James Stewart. Everyone wanted the “EIGHT & BOB” cologne they had apparently discovered through John's father, who had maintained relationships with well-known stars because of his previous business ventures in the movie industry.

The same Original scent now in a Special Edition 50ml that has been made in collaboration with the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of RFK’s historic presidential campaign. The Special Edition product features a prominent photo of Robert and a part of the revenue received from its purchase will be donated as a tribute to Robert F. Kennedy’s dream of a more fair and peaceful world.

Love the E&B Original

Everything about this fragrance was outstanding! What I hate is I dropped the bottle and it broke on the bathroom floor! While the bathroom smells terrific, it was an expensive room freshener. Just can’t tell you how disappointed I am, but it was my butterfinger moment of 2023🤦🏻‍♂️.
Other than that, yes I highly recommend E&B original. I wore if for two days (prior to the bungle moment) and the office Loved it. The wife loved it, the kids loved it!
Oh well, can’t cry over “spilled parfum”🤷🏼‍♂️ yes it’s outstanding classic and has a great history💪🏼

I have a Very respectable fragrance collection. The Original Eight and Bob will Always be in my Top 3 fragrances.
I have given Eight and Bob to five different people for Christmas gifts and birthday gifts and All Five Are Very Happy.
The Original Eight and Bob is Class in a bottle.

This is the best cologne I have ever smelled. If you want a scent with a rich, fun history that gives you the feeling of Summer sunshine on your face, this is it!


The five star rating is enough

Best Smell Ever

My wife and I went to Spain, and the hotel we stayed in had Eight & Bob lotion. The smell was incredible. I could not find the lotion State Side, but I ended up ordering the cologne sample pack, so I could try all of them. (Worth the buy)
I choose the Original, and have be amazingly happy with it.
