The story behind the Eight & Bob JFK Fragrance is almost as intriguing as the scent notes that the bottle holds. Created by Albert Fouquet, the fine fragrance expert met John F. Kennedy during a vacation to the French Riviera. The president -- smitten with one scent in particular -- had Fouquet craft him a bottle of it.

Upon giving JFK the bottle, Fouquet included a small note that read, "in this bottle, you will find the dash of French glamour that your American personality lacks." JFK placed an order for eight additional bottles once returning home to the United States; one of which was intended for his brother Robert. This order gave way to the name Eight & Bob, which has since lay in hiding for over 70 years.

Those who want to obtain a bottle of their own Eight & Bob JFK Fragrance can do so in limited numbers.
