Do you know the real story behind the fragrance brand Eight and Bob? Trust me; you will be surprised, as it involves a French perfumer and a young John F. Kennedy. Briefly, J.F.K. was vacationing on the French Riviera in 1937 and met Albert Fourquet, a purveyor of fine fragrance and his butler Phillipe. John F.Kennedy was captivated by one particular cologne and charmed Foruquet into leaving him a sample. When he returned home to America, he wrote Albert Fourquet and asked for eight samples for his friends “Bob”, none other than his brother Robert F.Kennedy. J.F.K. named the fragrance Eight and Bob Fast forward, it was a big hit with Hollywood stars like Cary Grant and James Stewart. Unfortunately Albert Foruqet passed away, but Phillipe hid the formula from the Nazis; later his family kept the formula alive and into the 21st century Phillipe’s descendants own the brand Eight & Bob.
