Description
When American student John F. Kennedy met Parisian aristocrat Albert Fouquet in the French Riviera, not only was he charmed by the man, he was also intrigued by his hand-crafted scent. Upon his return to the US, JFK made a quirky request for eight samples—"and if your production allows, another one for Bob". Today, “EIGHT & BOB” continues to be one of the most exclusive colognes, preferred by the world’s most classic men.<br><br>Cap D'Antibes transports you to the south of France with its breezy opening of sweet violet, cool mint, and aromatic birch. Notes of deep, satisfying cinnamon and verdant, plush moss accent a calming foundation of incense spice, delicate cedar, and warm, inviting vanilla.

EIGHT & BOB Cap D'Antibes description

Cap D’Antibes (the Cape of Antibes, in French) was a cherished getaway spot in the 1930’s for Eight & Bob’s legendary perfumer Albert Fouquet. He would spend all his time there, from spring through summer, enjoying the company of the French aristocracy at the Eden Roc hotel. Cap D’Antibes is his treasured memory of this charming French seaside village, told through the art of fragrance.

I liked it I just think it's not for me
I liked this it's supposed to be kind of aquatic, and it is. I just don't think the mint belongs in there. maybe it just doesn't smell good on me personally. I don't know, ide say it's worth a try. The normal sized bottle is like 140 bucks so for 14.95 i'de give it a shot.

Very Nice
This fragrance has both a very clean, just out of the shower scent, combined with the scent of the meeting of summer brightness and the deep woodsie breath of fall. A new favorite.

Nice!!
I really like this one. Huge fan of vetiver & strangely I get that here even though it's not mentioned in the note breakdown. The magic for me is in the dry down... This frag is a captivating woody fourgere. I get a cooling sensation from the mint, violet leaves and birch. Added vibrant spices like cinnamon, moss and the aromatic, green notes at the heart puts this frag over the top for me. The warm cedar along with the incense and vanilla adds to the serenity, the typical sensation of being on vacation in the Mediterranean. Projection is strong for the first few hours then begins to sit closer to the skin. I get compliments with this every time I wear it so definitely a winner for me!

Very good and quality smelling fragrance
You can tell that the ingredients in this are very high quality. It actually smells very fresh. It has an aquatic vibe even though there are no aquatic notes listed. You can smell violet heavily in the opening. The cedar wood and incense really come through in the mid. I didn't really pick up the mint notes at all. Overall a very pleasant scent. The performance is quite good as well, 6-8 hours.

Great Scent!
It starts out a little on the strong side but quickly mellows out. I like that it stays for a long time. Probably one of my favorites so far.

Its a pretty good classic scent.
This scent is pretty good. First thing first, the violet scent is straightforward and is very much present. If you are not a fan of violet, then I would not try this scent. However, if you don't mind it, its a pretty good classic fragrance. It balances the floral with the spice and once it settles down on the skin it's pretty pleasant. This is definitely something one could wear to the office or somewhere casual/trendy. It's defiantly a scent that one can't buy over the counter. I gave it 4 stars because of its lasting power. The only reason why it didn't get the full five is that I wanted the scent to be a little bit deeper. All in all a good scent. ​

Awful
If anyone is wondering what this smells like, let me help. Imagine someone farting into the cushion of a leather couch for 20 plus years. Then about a week ago decided to use said worn leather couch cushion as an ash tray. Had to reshower to get this awful smell off of me. Threw the rest of the bottle away.

Instead of throwing them away, why not trade them for ones you might like? There's groups on FB where you can swap these...

i went out with some friends the night i got this so i was like "ah, yes, time to try my new cologne" and when i got into the car my friend was like "dude, are you wearing axe body spray?" and i haven't worn this one since. smells too strong and cheap.

strong cheap car engine oil smell
This scent is a mess, Vegas rent-boy kind of mess. I ordered it based on the ratings but I would never recommend it to anyone. It smells cheap and like one the reviews below states, headachey. It truly is nauseating.

Strong strong STRONG
The scent is very strong, a bit too much. This scent hearkens me back to the days of middle school and AXE body spray was roaming the halls. It has an outdoorsy feel to it and lasts a good while. Defiantly a spring cologne if you are into smelling like a awkward 12 year old who is having problems picking up girls

Strong, but good scent
I liked this scent. A little goes a long way. If you spray too much it can be headachey. It lasts all day. I have sprayed it in my hair and catch whiffs of it from my pillow days later. Masculine smell,the ladies love it. It is more of a night out scent

Good smell but strong
The smell is very strong, so use lightly. If used lightly on the skin it has an amazing smell that lasts. It has a breezy musky smell that really pulls in attention. I would recommend this as a special occasion cologne. Like a night out or a special date or dressy dinner/event.

South of France may be a bit of a stretch. In my humble opinion it's not very unique. First spray is a tad strong but complex. After it mellows a bit it just becomes earthy incense, mostly slightly vanillad cedar... almost musky. It does last for a southern minute and I have gotten a few compliments. Smells great outside!

I like this fragrance but not on myself. The cedar burst when first sprayed on is too much for me. The dry down fragrance is very pleasant though, nice and mellow.

Definite aromas of incense, birch, and cedarwood. Long-lasting. Received many compliments. Reminds me of Narciso Rodriguez's cologne but much less abrasive on the senses.

Cap D'antibes is a great scent. It truly makes you feel like your off the coast of south France. With sweet violet, cool mint, and birch at the top, it starts with a bang. But in the dry down, vanilla and incense calms everything down. Very nice scent. Its performance is good but the projection only gets about 2 hours and then it becomes a skin scent. Would be better if performance increase. Overall, a good fragrance. I wouldn't purchase a bottle because of the performance vs. price. There are other scents in this genre that perform better...

Everyone around me loves it. Unfortunately the cedar is overpowering and smells fake to me. Makes it hard for me to breathe. Wish we could have scratch and sniff samples mailed so we can review them and narrow down our preferences.

VERY NICE smell. To me it's pretty unique. Admittedly I have far too many in my collection so constantly trying to find unique scents and this is definitely one of them. The longevity is actually really good, however it is mainly just the "basenotes" that last. The topnotes that I like so.much really only lasted about an hour max then it dried down to a pretty generic vanilla and lavender smell which I didn't really care for as it reminds me of the typical "perfume" smell (like walking into a perfume shop and where everything seems to meld into this same smell) that part I don't care for personally. It's a shame because if the top notes could last I would definitely buy a full bottle and give it much higher rating. I do still give it 4 stars because the scent smells very nice for the first 45-60 minutes and I used to live in the South of France near Cap d'Antibes and it does bring back a lot of memories from there... Hope this helps, Happy sniffing !

By far one of my favorites. It has a kind of zesty scent to it that lasts all day and has intense and at the same time soft undertones.

I like this scent. I usually go for clean and citrusy. This one has a little citrus in my opinion, but definitely a little more woodsy. But it's clean and it's original. It lasts a long time. And I have people ask me about it constantly. A nice change from what I'm used to.
