Encapsulating a chance meeting during a summer vacation along the French Riviera in 1937, Eight & Bob Original Eau de Parfum in a Book represents classic Americana with the exquisite sensuality of Parisian finery. With warm notes of sandalwood, cedar and guaiac, heightened by iris, spice accord and citrus, this bold fragrance offered by Osme in Miami, FL is a strong yet sensual delight for the senses.
It was a warm night on the Cote D’Azur in 1937 when Albert had a chance meeting with an American student who was exploring France in a convertible. A fast friendship between Albert and this young student, John F. Kennedy, set the man down a path that would transform the landscape of Eau de Parfum. JFK was drawn to the fragrance worn by Albert, and with his charm, was able to persuade Albert into supplying him with a sample of the fragrance along with a note that read: "In this bottle, you will find a dash of French glamour that is lacked in your American personality."
Once returned from his vacation, Albert found a letter from JFK that contained thanks for the gesture and accolades of the perfume’s success amongst his friends. He further requested that Albert send eight samples, "and another one for Bob, if your production allows it." Albert did not fully understand the request, but decided that it was more sensible to send as much perfume as the transportation costs justified. Phillipe found exquisite glass bottles suitable for the fragrance. Eight & Bob Original Inside Book Eau de Parfum spray was created and decorated with the same pattern worn on the shirt JFK was wearing when they met.Eight & Bob Original (Inside Book) (EDP) Notes: cirtrus, cedar, guaiac, sandalwood, spice accord, violet, iris, fragrances
I had an amazing experience when I was on vacation in Miami where I got to meet Maurice. He ask me some questions and he knew this was the right scent for me! I love this scent and the story behind it! It’s everything I wanted and more! I’ll definitely continue to purchase this scent! I can’t wait for my next trip back to Miami so I can stop in and chat with Maurice again!
