About This Product
The son of a Parisian aristocrat, Albert Fouquet was a perfume connoisseur who perfected various essences forhis personal use, aided by Philippe, the family butler. One night during a summer vacay on the French Riviera, Albert met and got on very well with a young American who was touring France in a convertible. His name? John F. Kennedy. Within hours, John managed to persuade Albert to leave him vials of the cologne he caught a whiffoff Albert when they first met. John later requested for Albert to send him eight samplesof the essence he fell in love with, some of which were sent to Hollywood directors, producers and actors due to John’s father relationships with well-known stars. Unfortunately, Albert passed on in an automobile accident near Biarritz, France and the start of World War II meantPhilippe had to hide to bottles inside books he carefully cut by hand to prevent the Nazis from seizing them. Decades later, thanks to the family of Philippe the butler,the formula for Eight & Bob has been completely recovered, becoming one of the most exclusive colognes preferred by men the world over.
For Albert Fouquet, Antibes was heaven. In this charming village on the French Riviera, Albert enjoyed long holidays during the 1930s in the company of the elite of European aristocracy - holidays that extended from spring until the last days of summer. At that time, only a few were privileged enough to enjoy the elegant and 'discreet luxury' of spending the summer months on the French Riviera. Unforgettable mornings were spent sailing in the Grande Bleue, golden sunsets were enjoyed from the gardens of the Eden Roc hotel, and balmy evenings were enlivened with exclusive celebrations and charming parties. Albert dreamt about these summers during the cold Parisian winters. Like any artist who strives for perfection, he spent many weeks delicately crafting a fragrance that captured the essence of his memories of those summer days. The result was Cap d'Antibes. A fragrance that was made for the exclusive enjoyment of its creator and became a favourite in his private collection. After so many years, it is 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 tastes.
