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.

Amazing service!

I purchased their discovery set and had to order three! (30ml bottles)
Ordered them on a Wednesday; received them on Saturday! 10/10 recommend.

The original has a sweet smell that evolves into an amazing and fresh woodsy scent.

Egypt; has a strong initial impression that smoothes out to a soft, yet still powerful sandalwood.

Cap D’Antibes is my wife’s favorite with its ocean-like scent of freshness at first, which becomes soft and relaxing as the day progresses.

Figured if JFK wore this; he must have a reason why!

Thank you guys so much for shipping this out as quickly as you did. I had got this cologne for the bubs years ago for our anniversary and he absolutely loved it. Im
So happy I was able to order online and get it in time for his birthday.
Such an incredible scent 😍 (turns me on every time 🤭) and the packaging and history of it, makes it that more special

I love the original, nice clean scent that last all day, not over powering and very unique. One of the best scents I’ve purchased in a long time.

Wow! A delight.

Sometimes with cologne, even with the descriptions of the notes, you tend to either love or dislike your new purchase and must live with something underwhelming or overwhelming. NOT with EIGHT AND BOB; everything about this scent is delightful. No wonder it is described as classic and is. Not too strong, but not weak; not too powdery, citrusy, woodsy, spicy, sweet, not too everything, just right. What else can I say, other than it's love at first sniff. Can't go wrong with it. Whether you're a scent lover or casual dabbler, THE ORIGINAL will make you wish you had discovered it long ago. I know I do.
