Although Albert Fouquet is best remembered for creating Eight & Bob’s distinct flagship scent (and captivating one John Fitzgerald Kennedy in the process), his olfactory adventures did not begin and end there. Egypt, one of two stunning new fragrances rediscovered from Fouquet’s private collection, is a testament to Fouquet’s enduring legacy, a subtle, sophisticated and remarkably fresh woody eau de parfum inspired by (and conceived during) two sightseeing trips through one of the world’s most fascinating, culturally rich countries.
Based on the exotic plants and flowers Fouquet found in the gardens of his Egyptian friend during his visit, Egypt opens with a crisp, understated mixture of citrus, lavender and moss, calling to mind leisurely mornings in sunny courtyards with good company. The heart of the fragrance is rich with Egyptian spices- cardamom and nutmeg- and a quietly robust base of leather, patchouli and sandalwood confers regal elegance without ever overpowering. Subtle yet vibrant, spicy yet soft, Egypt is the perfect fragrance for the worldly gentleman who knows when less is more.
