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.

3.6 out of 5
More like an aftershave than cologne.
Had more of an alcohol smell and didn’t last for the day.
Sophisticated. One of my favorites!
Had a sharp aerosol hairspray smell that attacked my senses.
nice fragrance for a man
Wife says, "It smells like a pickle in a fart."
Not my favorite, smells too different on my skin.
This was ok, just not as good as the original.
I like the original better.
Didn’t like the frangrance

Eight & Bob ROCKS!!
This is a perfect example of why I subscribe to Scentbird. I doubt I would have found this great scent in retail stores, and a tough blind buy. Scentbird gives me the opportunity to try higher end frags with out breaking the bank. I have found a new go to scent.
I can really pick out the incense in it, Still I really like this scent.

I guess the hype was just hype. This cologne has a woodsy/nasty cigar type of funk to it and even the initial tones weren't appealing to me. To each their own. All day I felt funky.

HIC SUNT LEONES!
i loved the clean but present smell.

Not My Favorite
This one is alright, just not for me. On my skin, I get an almost peppery scent, which I believe may be due to the incense (which I think is a little too strong). Also, didn't last very long on my skin before fading away to being nearly unnoticeable.

I've grown to really like it
I received this along with Eight and Bob's "Original." When I first compared the two, I liked the Original, probably because of the uniqueness and of course the fact that Pres. JFK wore it probably played a role subconsciously. But through time, I've flipped and now I love this one MUCH more. I'd buy a bottle of this one for sure. It's a great summertime, lush cologne.

Reminds me of my grandpa.
Not the best from Eight & Bob.

I tried this and I liked the scent but felt that it didn’t last long very long.

Just an all around classic mens fragrance. Has everything that should be in a mans fragrance. Sweet, woodsy and fresh, an absolute must have if want compliments.

The Holy Grail of Colognes
This has been the most amazing discovery! My husband is hooked, and so am I. It’s such a complex but gorgeous scent and the dry down is so sophisticated and sexy that there’s really no comparison.

Its a grownup scent.
I've enjoyed all the scents I've received by Eight & Bob. They all seem to blur the line between masculine and feminine in such a lovely way. I think they are so unisex and fitting for those who have the attitude to carry them off.

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.
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.
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!
The scent gets a lot of good compliments. First thing they say is you smell like Dillard’s
I thought this was not a good cologne at all... smells like a bowl of potpourri.
Eight and Bob
I liked it. Very manly.
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.
Smelled really ocean like, not cheap like some other scentbird aquatics, and was refreshing. 4.1/5
I love it. It has a very deep aroma
Lots of complements
But best for winter or fall.
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.
Cheap and WAY too strong...
No, hated this smell
Did not like this one!
Good for the office
This scent is nice for the office, it is a little strong up close.
This is a scent that lasts and makes an impression.
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...
Spicy and lasts long
It has a good bite to it. Lasts a long time and is consistent. A good winter spicy smell.
The scent was a bit heavy on me. I’ve had this problem before with scents and my chemistry. Not unpleasant but a little heavy
not for me
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
The scent was neutral. It didnt smell bad but also not phenomenal. It definitely didn't last long. I would recommend it for a office setting.
Great For The Office
This is very soft on my skin. I love the way it is not to over powering. Great for the office. I’ve been given a few compliments after meetings.
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.
awesome and long lasting
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...
Love the selections, everyone raves over the scent!
Wasn't sure at first but I've received compliments on it. A little more spice than I like.
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.
Everyone around me loves it, unfortunately the cedar comes across too strong for me and it makes me almost suffocate. Wish we could get scratch and sniff cards in the mail of a few we pick or just a scents to help narros down our tastes
Was excited to receive. Never got it.
This was my first shipment and have to say I am impressed. Based on the quiz I had taken when I signed up, this fragrance was one of the recommended scents. I am really happy with the fragrant smell and have already had many comments. I am excited to see what the next recommended scent will bring.
Did not receive this fragrance!!!!
Great cologne. My wife loves it too.
Clean and fresh scent that stays with you. Draws plenty of compliments. A must try!!
I dont believe this scent wasin my queue. Smells like something my dad would wear. Not into it.
Amazing summer scent lasts long time get it 😀
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.
Classic scent and long lasting. This scent reminds me of Fall evenings. Apply cautiously, as the scent can be quite strong. A little goes a long way.
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.
Fresh and clean scent love it and stays with u for a good part of the day.
