Agneta is named after the iconic yacht that belonged to Italian luxury car mogul, international playboy, and godfather of style, Gianni Agnelli. Dianne Von Furstenberg once said of Agnelli: “Every woman in the world was in love with him, and every man in the world wanted to be him.”
Perfectly representative of Eight & Bob’s values of timeless style and elegance, Agneta is an enigmatic yet spirited fragrance. Starring prized and precious oud wood, which is valued for its scarcity and laborious extraction process, this scent oozes charisma, charm, and gentlemanly sophistication.

HOW IT WEARS
This fragrance has a lively, spicy opening of bergamot, cardamom, pepper, and nutmeg, softly shrouded in amber which adds an addictive, modern touch. The dry down is when the intensity of the woods becomes apparent, and a real warmth shines through the fragrance. Extrait strength, Agneta should last 8-10 hours on the skin.
Agneta carries us from the Mediterranean to the ports of North Africa. Enjoy a spiced coffee and a cigar as a cool breeze beckons the intoxicating, mysterious scent of incense toward you, while you lounge upon the luxurious teak deck of your boat. Wearing Agneta makes you feel like the suavest, most charming and cultured version of yourself. One spritz of this incredible extrait is an upgrade to first class.

His fragrances were for his own delight, his own creative fulfillment and very personal as they told the stories of his favourite people and places. This all changed however, one night in 1937 when Fouquet met a young John F Kennedy who fell in love with his fragrance and the rest, as they say, is history…
