JFK’s charm and congeniality persuaded Albert to leave him a sample of his cologne, which he had created upper floor of his family chateau. He left it with a note saying: “In this bottle, you will find a dash of French glamour.”

On informing Albert of the success of his perfume in the US, JFK requested “eight samples, and if production allows, another one for Bob”. Albert filled the cologne in beautiful glass bottles and in boxes decorated with the pattern of JFK’s shirt, labeling them with his amusing request: Eight & Bob.

A few months later, Albert began receiving letters from Hollywood producers, directors and actors, who had all discovered Eight & Bob. In the final shipments before his death in World War II, the bottles were hidden inside books that were carefully cut by hand to prevent the Nazis from seizing them.
