Eight & Bob Egypt Eau de Parfum Travel Size 30ml


EGYPT | is one of the most exclusive fragrances created by Albert Fouquet. In 1935, Albert decided to fulfil a promise made to visit Ahmed, a childhood friend, and accomplish one of his dreams at the same time. Albert was fascinated by ancient Egyptian culture and while visiting his friend in Egypt he could enjoy lengthy tours of the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as the temples of Luxor and Hatshepsut.

For Albert Fouquet, the visit was also an opportunity to travel to the birthplace of perfume. He wanted to research the essences that have been in use for thousands of years. He was also curious to discover what was in those extraordinarily aromatic jars offered to the gods to protect the pharaohs, or in the scents used to satisfy the revered Cleopatra. This wonderful visit was enriched from the moment Albert passed through the doorway approaching Ahmeds home. The impressive garden of his villa contained dozens of flowers that were unknown to Albert.

Albert was overwhelmed by new sensations and when he was unable to extend his already lengthy visit, he planned a second trip four months later with the express intention of finding a unique perfume.

After several weeks of intense work in the villa of Ahmed, Albert Fouquet selected the final details of a new formula after returning to his chateau in Paris. EGYPT became part of his exclusive and private perfume collection. It is such a pleasure to share the originality of the best perfumes created by Albert Fouquet and ensure they reach the hands of those fortunate enough to share his lifestyle.

EIGHT & BOB is a legendary fragrance brand that has a fascinating history dating back to 1937. The brand's story begins with Albert Fouquet, a French perfumer who created a scent that caught the attention of a young John F. Kennedy during a trip to the Cote D'Azur. Kennedy was so taken with the fragrance that he asked Fouquet to send him eight samples of the scent, as well as one for his friend Bob. Fouquet obliged, bottling the fragrance in a square glass bottle with a black stopper and packaging it in the same black striped pattern as the shirt Kennedy had been wearing when he met Fouquet. He labeled the fragrance "EIGHT & BOB," and it quickly gained popularity among Hollywood directors, producers, and actors. Unfortunately, the success of EIGHT & BOB was short-lived. Fouquet died in a tragic automobile accident in 1939, and production of the fragrance was halted shortly thereafter. However, the formula for EIGHT & BOB was preserved over the years, hidden away inside cut-away library books through two world wars, by the Fouquet family butler. Decades later, the fragrance was rediscovered and revived by Albert's great-grandson, who decided to bring the scent back to life and share it with the world. Today, EIGHT & BOB is a beloved fragrance brand with a storied history and a loyal following, thanks to its unique blend of classic French elegance and Hollywood glamour.
