Each perfume in Albert’s private collection was born from a memory of a place or of a person – transforming them into extraordinary fragrances to conserve them in time.
In 1936, Albert Fouquet traveled to Megève – the luxurious ski resort town in eastern France, as he did every winter to spend his days skiing and his evening socializing. On this particular night, Fouquet attended a dinner at his friend Nicholas’ château. At this gathering he met Annicke, a young Austrian woman with striking green eyes. Mesmerised by her, they spent the evening drawn to each other – chatting by the fireplace, dancing and drinking. As the evening came to a close and feeling the fluttering of love on this first night, Annicke and Fouquet promised to stay in contact. As Annicke was to travel back to Austria and Fouquet to Paris, they promised to write to each other and meet again in a few months time.
Their letters were filled with love, desire and dreams. Inspired by their planned meeting in Vienna, Albert created a fragrance to present to Annicke. She was amazed by the beauty of this perfume, and from then on Albert would present Annicke with a new perfume he had created on every meeting.
Annicke 2 is a beautiful, gutsy floral with unique qualities. This is sexy and seductive perfume that heroes the Tuberose note but then mingles it with Fig and Hazelnut to create an ultimately creamy, decadent and luxuriously velvety floral perfume this still feels incredibly elegant.

HOW IT WEARS
This fragrance is an Eau de Parfum from Eight & Bob has great longevity. Annicke 2 is incredibly long lasting and strong on the skin – a little bit goes a long way! It also leaves a gorgeous wafting scent that will (almost) always get comments with this playfully teasing aroma. the Tuberose note comes alove with the creamy gourmand sweetness of Fig then the earthy gourmand Hazelnut blend. This is an utterly intoxicating floral gourmand fragrance.
We love how sexy Eight & Bob’s Annicke 2 is! A fragrance we could imagine would wearing only in your best lingerie as it is so decadent, feminine and seductive! Annicke is gourmand, floral deliciousness. Annicke 2 is a little more seductive than the first in the collection (Annicke 1). With alluring Tuberose and a deliciously memorable blend of nuts, this scent is both flirty and fun – quite a standout amongst other Tuberose fragrances. This is Annicke starting to show her personality, the progression in the relationship as lust begins to take hold…
ABOUT THE BRAND
The perfume with history – Eight & Bob was created by Albert Fouquet, the son of a French aristocrat. In a room on the upper floor of the family château, Fouquet created and perfected various essences for his own personal use aided by Philippe, the trusted family butler. At social events his fragrance was in high demand, however Fouquet continually rejected proposals to market his fragrance. 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…
