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 4 is a bright and exquisite floral fragrance. Hints of fruity notes, with a beautifully rounded floral heart. Inspired by the Roseraie de Bagatelle in Paris where SAlbert and Annicke would sometimes meet. The famous rose garden with over 9500 varieties of roses. Annicke 4 is a sparkling, romantic rose fragrance with a fruity playfulness and a velvety woody-moss base.

NOTES
Top: Blackcurrant Buds, Nectarine
Middle: Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang

HOW IT WEARS
Annicke 4 is a very strong and long lasting floral fragrance, it contains depth in its base so whilst opening in a bright and fresh floral it has an earthy base that gives great longevity. This is a must for any rose lovers out there!

LORE LOVES
We love how bright and beautiful Annicke 4 is. It is one of our favourite rose based fragrances, the light mingling of Jasmine is so gorgeous with the heart of Rose. Annicke 4 has perfectly captured the scent of a gorgeous spring time breeze as you wander through Parisian rose gardens.

ABOUT THE BRAND
The perfume with history - Eight and 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...

"Well, I really think “Bertie” knew what he was doing when he created this lovely fragrance for his woman. The thought of my husband creating a fragrance for me (48 yrs married) is frightening. Sadly he still thinks buying a new bottle of Old Spice exciting. It’s ok, that’s where I come in and suggest there might just be more than one men’s aftershave. Thank goodness he has no hair or it’d be plastered with Brylcream (maybe some will remember). Annicke 4 EDP is very engaging. By that I mean it’s one of those scents that has the perfect mix of notes to make others either ask straight out or wonder “what perfume are you wearing”? It also has a good lasting quality. I was actually wearing a perfume from LORE when I went to a Chris Isaak concert with my daughter. He walked down through the audience in front and put one arm around me and said “mmm..you smell so good”. See? You never know what reaction you’ll get. He didn’t even have his guide dog or white stick!!!!"
