Eight + Bob is a lightweight, creamy cologne that puts one very much in mind of the idle life--or as it could also be seen, the idyll life. Imagine a convertible sailing along sunkissed coastal roads. The car is a soft pewter, the driver is genteel yet louche in pinstripes and khaki’s. As they guide their sturdy silver steed around the bends and curves of this gorgeous landscape, the air sparkles around them, a fresh yet ever evolving atmos.
At first we glimpse a hint of yellow, the pithy rejoinder of lemons sparkling in the late morning sun. As their citric vivacity swings through the air it meets with the sweet, yet complex piquancy of small, fragrant flowers that dot the meadows this driver speeds by--violets--creating an overall effect of light spice. Momentarily our path diverges from the water and our driver finds himself in the blurry haze of deep greens, browns and blues; a forest dappled with light that exudes the sweet, smoky woodsy aspects of cedar, the smooth, dusky cool of iris and the searing green vivacity of sandalwood. As these elements converge and meld into forest shadow they form a darker effect, a dry, terse smoke that almost hints at the dry crackle of fire.
Just as we begin to wonder what is or what could happen in the growing dim, we reemerge on the other side of that woody interlude, at a beach. Saline refreshment and the slightly sweet, ripe smells of drying seaweed, sea creatures and driftwood meet us here, a total relief and joyous respite from the road.
Eight + Bob is an irresistible, bon vivant romp, that’s as light and free as the spirit of a young explorer. Try this scent and rediscover your lust for life.
