The story of this perfume is a film script and the name of Eight & Bob reveals everything about it and human nature in itself: Albert Fouquet, a Parisian aristocrat, created this perfume for himself. He never wanted to market it. John F. Kennedy met him in 1937 at the French Riviera, and was given some samples. When JFK returned to the US, the perfume became a star and he asked Albert for a sample and “if your production allows for it, another one for Bob.” On the fougère mood, the secret green plant from Chile, and the combination of the freshness of the bergamot and lemon on the top and some dried fruits and sandal and guaiac wood, this base is the definition of a grand homme. Like New York by P. Nicolai. Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary should adopt it.
