Nuit de Megève EDP 20ml
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.
Fouquet was in love. He needed to keep the memory of their first meeting alive and the best way he could do this was to create a beautiful fragrance capturing all of the smells he remembered from that night.Eight & Bob's Nuit de Megève takes us to nights in Megève. The scent of the fireplace crackling, the warmth of the atmosphere, and the rich woods of the château. Warm and inviting, yet also mysterious and sexy on the skin. The Vetiver and Tonka blend seamlessly created a creamy, slightly sweet smokiness that draws you in.

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...
