Eight & Bob?s Original is a classic gentleman?s fragrance, with fans that include iconic movie stars and former Presidents. Bracing top notes of ginger, tart lemon, and bright bergamot punctuate the sweet, dry warmth of cedar and hazelnut, as exotic patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla add an elegant five o?clock shadow.

EIGHT & BOB The Original description

Eight & Bob Original?s cheery elegance and rakish spices make for a versatile and engaging wear. The backstory doesn?t hurt, either: Eight & Bob takes its name from an anecdote involving perfumer Albert Fouquet being asked by John F. Kennedy to send him eight samples plus ?one for Bob,? meaning Robert Kennedy, the future President. So, when two of the most iconic Presidential figures.. Read more >

Nice, but almost feminine in a masculine way!
Over all I enjoy this scent, but it reminds me of Chanel No. 5, so not the most masculine scent. Not that it?s overly feminine, but there?s something about it for me. Maybe too heavy on the vanilla? I can?t quite pin point the ?issue ?, and it doesn?t ruin Eight and Bob for me, but I figured I?d mention it.

Unpleasant Undernote
There's something I like on the initial intake of this fragrance. But there's something starkly unpleasant on the exhale. Definite headache inducer

Flower power
Pretty strong smell but it?s not the old man old spice smell. Very floral smell. Goes well with a suit and tie. Isn?t really a laid back causal/jeans and tee shirt smell.

The Original
Enjoyed the scent, felt that it lasted a short time. Not sure if that was a watered down version I received or the true version. I had experienced delays with customer service for some time. Hard to say if this was on the up and up from go. But skeptical about all the scents as of now. Been overcharged and little upset still so that could have been what lowered score

Smells like Patchouli......like those chicks who smoked all that weed in the 70's
When I was a kid all my sisters friends smelled like this! If your interested in smelling like a teenage girl in 1970's this is the scent for you.... otherwise stay away!

Nice daily wear
I enjoy the fragrance once it wears for a while. It is a little sweet for my body chemistry and after a while losea that sec appeal i had expected from the scent. However, I would certainly suggest to anyone who wanted a subtle softer smelling mens fragrance. Cheers

Strong but fades
I would agree with other reviews that the fragrance is strong upon application but then fades throughout the day. I was excited about this fragrance due to its history but have not had one compliment since I have been wearing it. I like it but wouldn't be my first choice.

The opening scent is great the dry down is great it?s not really strong so it?s not going to linger and it doesn?t last very long so the only reason it doesn?t get 5 is it doesn?t last

Not sure if it works for me.
Good , but not blown away. Very light almost perfumey like. My usual is Invasion Barbare by MDCI, I like a masculine floral but this just didn't float my boat at all, rather disappointed that when sprayed on me, it mixed with my body chemistry in a not so good way, Glad it was a sample and not a full bottle. Will try it again (maybe for a week) and see if it changes.

Really enjoyed this cologne. Very soft. I am use to over bearing strong smells. My wife said she really enjoys, but she doesn't smell it unless she's close. (so in any married mans eyes this is a good thing). I personally like the soft smell. I like to smell it which I do, and when you pass someone, they too will smell you and I promise, it will get their mind thinking.... "what is that?" I would say it has notes of vanilla... personally that is what I smell the most. I am a bearded manly man so it's a tad soft for me, but I totally like the change. This is a cologne, that I do own now, and wear on special occasions and date nights with my wife. It's my stellar cologne I like to cherish. Would totally recommend it. Don't get scared by the price and try the sample to see for yourself. In my personal eyes it has more of a feminine smell than an over powerful manly scent. You only live once, try it out and see for yourself! It is one I definitely will always keep on my shelf!

This scent smells very fresh and clean. It has a citrus scent that leans more to the sweet side than flowery. It is a light scent that lingers all day and is perfect for hot weather. It is similar in that way to D&G's Light blue and if you like Light Blue you'll definitely love this one.

I was excited to receive this scent because of its description and reviews. It was ok. I'll wear it, but it's not one of my favorites. The scent starts out strong when you originally spray it, but softens after a few minutes. I wouldn't buy a large bottle of it, but it's worth the monthly payment.
