ight & Bob began when American student John F. Kennedy met Parisian aristocrat Albert Fouquet on the Cotes d’Azur in the 1930’s, not only was he charmed by the man, he was also intrigued by his hand-crafted scent. Upon his return to the US, JFK made a request for eight bottles of scent – ‘and if your production allows, one for Bob’
Eight and Bob, as the cologne came to be known, was a huge hit with the Hollywood elite, but it would languish for decades after Albert’s tragic death in a car crash. WWII forced Fouquet’s assistant Philippe – the only other person who knew the cologne’s formula – to hide his final shipment of bottles inside books that he carefully cut by hand.
