Eight & Bob


EIGHT & BOB: the "dash of French glamor" that JFK fell in love with during a trip to the Cote D'Azur in 1937. Perfumer Albert Fouquet, who wore the scent exclusively as his own, was charmed by the young JFK and agreed to give him a sample. After returning to the US, JFK wrote Fouquet a note thanking him for the scent and informing him of the success his perfume enjoyed among his friends. He requested that Fouquet send him a box of eight samples, and "one for Bob". Fouquet responded by bottling the scent in it's signature square glass with a black stopper, and packaged it in the same black striped pattern of the shirt JFK had been wearing when he met Fouquet. He labeled the fragrance "EIGHT & BOB", for JFK's amusing request, and sent it off. The fragrance gained popularity in the states among various Hollywood directors, producers, and actors, but its success was short lived: Albert Fouquet tragically died in an automobile accident in 1939, and production was stopped shortly thereafter. It's been decades, but thanks to the Fouquet family butler, the formula for EIGHT & BOB has been preserved, hidden away inside cut-away library books through the years and two world wars.
