Eight & Bob Candles
Eight & Bob is a collection of candles with a history as encaptivating as their scents.
A discerning Parisian aristocrat and perfume connoisseur named Albert Fouquet crafted the scents with his butler, Philippe, in the early 20th century. Through sheer kismet, the scents became somewhat legendary after Fouquet met and got on very well with a young American student who was touring France: John F. Kennedy. JFK liked Fouquet’s cologne so much he requested some samples—eight bottles, and one for Bob. An amused Fouquet labeled the bottles “Eight & Bob” and the rest is history.
The soul of each scent is a wild plant from the Andes that can only be picked in limited supply two months out of the year. The availability of Eight & Bob scents changes each year accordingly.
