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.
Mémoires de Mustique is a tribute to those who have shared the magic of this unique Caribbean island and for those who once dreamed of being part of something unique. Mémoires de Mustique scent is born from the encounter between a masterpiece of Albert Fouquet and the reminiscences of the magnificent and exclusive island of Mustique through its crystalline waters, the eternity of its sunsets and its landscapes unchanged throughout history. A trip to the past to capture its essence in its purest form.
