In the early twentieth century, in a room on the upper floor of the family chateau, the son of a Parisian aristocrat by the name of Albert Fouquet would spend his days creating and perfecting various perfumes – aided by Philippe, the family butler.
One night whilst Albert was holidaying on the French Riviera in 1937, he happened to cross paths with John F Kennedy; a student at the time, who was touring France in a convertible. The two immediately took a liking to each other and the charming John was instantly captivated by the essence Albert was wearing. He managed to persuade Albert to provide him with a sample.
The painstaking work of Albert and Philippe has not been consigned to the history books forever. Decades later, thanks to the family of Philippe the butler, the formula for “EIGHT & BOB” has been completely recovered, along with its superior production process. Once again, it has become one of the most exclusive colognes, preferred by the world’s most elegant men.

1452, the birth date of Leonardo da Vinci
1475, the birth date of Michelangelo
Dedicated to the supreme poet, Dante Alighieri, born in Florence in 1265. 1265 is a poem of bergamot and orange, petitgrain and heliotrope. Like Dante’s verses the scents reflect the movement and feelings as neroli rhymes with rose and musk embraces thyme. The perfume “that moves the sun and other stars”.
A homage to Leonardo, genius of mankind, born in Vinci in 1452. 1452 is a brilliant invention, the freshness of a new idea, the lightness of a perfect and beautiful mechanism. Citrus vibrates on a stable and sure frame of green and flowery notes while the petitgrain makes every movement fluid rendering the aromatic herbs a masterpiece of beauty and precision.
A Michelangelo Buonarroti, protagonista del Rinascimento Italiano, che nasceva vicino ad Arezzo nel 1475. Rinascere vuol dire maturare un nuovo punto di vista e concepire se stessi ed il mondo in maniera differente. La classicità si evolve, si spinge verso nuovi confini, si trasforma e diviene moderna, attuale, nuova.
