One night during his summer vacation in 1937 on the French Riviera, Albert met a young American student who was touring France in a convertible: John F. Kennedy.  J.F.K. was captivated by the essence that Albert wore.  Albert left him a sample of his fragrance 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 having among his friends. He requested Albert to send him eight samples, “and if your production allows, another one for Bob”.  

The original perfume became adored by the stars of Hollywood's golden age such as Cary Grant and James Stewart.

During the war the shipments were hidden inside books carefully cut by hand to hide them from the Nazis, hence the unique packaging of the fragrance. Decades later, the formula for “EIGHT & BOB” has been completely recovered, along with its carefully crafted production process. Once again, it has become one of the most exclusive fragrances, preferred by the world’s most elegant men and women.

Safe and Warm fragrance

This is a very pleasant wear, but lacks a bit of punch for my tastes. I don't like loud obnoxious fragrances, but I like to experience a little scent bubble around myself so as to catch it now and again whilst going about my day or night. There is none of that here as it sits very close to the skin (at least on me).
This is a shame as the cool lavender opening, and the nutmeg/cardamom middle are nice and comforting.
I only invested in a 30ml bottle. It's definitely quality, but I won't be buying a second bottle.

Superb product, a great story and a lovely shopping experience

I love the story of this brand, so was delighted to find it in Scent Lounge. I tested it on my skin in the morning and experienced it developing beautifully, some 6+ hours later I can still smell it (unusual for me as I rarely smell perfumes on myself after the first spray) If you can't make it into store, ping them on chat or call for advice, a great environment with a knowledgeable and experienced team.
