Eight & Bob fragrance notes

Reviews of Eight & Bob

Sweet, soft, ultra modern.

In my opinion, this is a very generic fragrance that isn’t entirely masculine. This is very similar to reflection man.
Very linear, with the bubblegum note at the front the entire time. I don’t get much citrus, just sweet chewy bubblegum. This earns a negative review mostly because the price point and asinine backstory are laughable for such a generic cheap smelling fragrance.

EDP Version

The similarities to Fahrenheit 32 are initially very close but eight and bob is far denser and has a more linear dry down. What I mainly get is lemon and vanilla with hints of nuts (slight synthetic feeling but not annoying or plasticky), not in the same way as say chanel edition blanche either, more a sort of strange banana smell. Sounds weird but I really like this and it performs amazingly on my skin. Where as Fahrenheit 32 is a bit more floral and wispy in its dry down this one maintains its top and Base notes from start to finish, probably one of the most linear fragrances I've come across. Eight and Bob lasts around 10 hours on my skin with at least 5 hours of projection. I'd say this could be worn anytime of year and anywhere, a nice release and fun to wear.

A fresh, clean, soapy and salty blend which seems pretty synthetic. To me, this feels like the type of those mall scents which are neither good or bad, just cheap.

I tried the original Eight & Bob creation on paper and was unimpressed, but it has a lot more depth. Opening with a fresh spicy blend of bergamot, lemon, cardamom, and ginger, it has the initial aura of a fresh masculine experience but quickly starts to evolve into a woody, and sweet, almost resinous dry down.

The dry down is curious, especially the base, which consists of ambergris, patchouli, and vanilla, a varied mix that hints at the animalic side of ambergris but mostly provides its characteristic saltiness in concert with the sweetness of vanilla and unique semi-dirtiness that is special to patchouli.

It starts as a men's freshie but drie down to be a versatile unisex fragrance--an interesting evolution.

At $185 for 100ml (or $150 for the 50ml RFK special edition), the original Eight & Bob is in a manageable-enough price point for how well this EDT performs., quite excellent for the type of fragrance (semi-fresh, semi-sweet 4-season), concentration (EDT), and aforementioned pricing. It also comes in a $50-for-20ml travel size.

Overall, quite impressive and versatile.

Blind buy, not bad but not for me. Bit sickly, vanilla, soapy and flowery.

Packaging is top class, nice story but the jury’s out on that one. It would make a unique gift if you were certain they’d like it.

The wife wears it now and seems to rate it higher than I.

So, I've had the opportunity to test this one extensively. I have mixed views on Eight and Bob - Original. Whilst I find it interesting, I don't think it offers anything new. It seems to be a mixture of citrus, herbs and sweetness. But then, it's also priced higher than say something like Habit Rouge by Guerlain. In fact, considering the house of Guerlain (even their designer line for men) I don't see why this one would be placed higher than that. That being said, the story is interesting, but I feel that this brand may possibly suffer from the Creed ego trip that feels they need a special story and to sell each fragrance. Based on it's own merits, it's not niche-worthy, and it would've been better at a lower price (in order to sit among designer-level fragrances), as it doesn't offer anything beyond designer level.
