The story of EIGHT & BOB began in 1937 when Albert Fouquet, the son of a Parisian aristocrat created and perfected various essences for his own personal use. Fouquet would surprise his guests, who were all part of an exclusive social circle and raised the demand for his fragrance but rejected several proposals to market his product. One night during his summer holiday in 1937 Albert meet John F. Kennedy, who was still a student at the time. J.F.K. was the first person to persuade Albert to give him a sample of his fragrance. When John F. Kennedy arrived back in the US, he sent a thank you letter to Albert, asking him to send "eight more bottles and one for Bob". Unfortunately the success did not spread much further when Albert died in a car accident in 1939. His former butler Philippe, who helped Albert with creating the fragrance from the very beginning, was the only one who could handle additional orders, but with the start of WW2, he was forced out of France. To hide the formula from the Nazis, he decided to place the fragrances inside books. Decades later, thanks to the family of Philippe, the formula of "EIGHT & BOB" has been recovered along with its carefully crafted production process.
