Nuit de Megeve by Eight & Bob


When the missus handed me a 20ml bottle of Nuit de Megeve Eau de Parfum by Eight & Bob my preliminary response was “who the f**okay are Eight & Bob” – I might by no means of the perfume or the model and on condition that it is taken about six months for me to put in writing down my ideas I gave this one not a second thought till I pulled out all the aftershaves I hadn’t but written about (there are over fifteen – when do I begin classifying this as an habit?!?)

Understanding nothing in regards to the model, the perfume, the notes, nothing I went to take a peek and perform a little analysis into who Eight & Bob are and the place you’ll be able to decide up a bottle. It seems that 1, these things is not low-cost – £130 for a 100ml bottle of it from John Lewis right here and a pair of, it is really a unisex perfume for each women and men.

Usually I discover studying in regards to the historical past of a model fairly tedious, however the story behind Eight & Bob is admittedly fairly fascinating – I will not damage it right here, but it surely includes a Parisian aristocrat and a younger John F Kennedy in 1937.

The notes to Nuit de Megeve are:

  • Head: Grapefruit, petit grains and clove buds
  • Coronary heart: Tonka beans, orris and black espresso
  • Dry-down: Vetiver, tobacco and musks

After a twig or two the very first thing that struck me was that it was far, far too female for me – it was an instantaneous “nope” from me and because the perfume triggered my reminiscence this jogged my memory of my Auntie Sue (in a great way – she has nice perfume tastes) however I did not need to be smelling like a 60+ feminine. Initially ideas weren’t constructive, but it surely was apparent from the perfume that the sweetness of the grapefruit on the nostril was somewhat too sharp for my liking. It’s a moderately heavy perfume regardless of the citrus head notes however fortunately these do not final and the perfume evolves rapidly and alters a lot that I needed to basically change my evaluation after fifteen minutes.

The sharpness of the citrus dries away rapidly and it turns into a a lot smoother degree of sweetness because the vanilla like be aware from the tonka bean mix with the espresso to make this a lot hotter, and in flip, way more masculine. 

Inside thirty minutes you’re left with the ultimate perfume and that is the place my love for Nuit de Megeve actually explodes. The vetiver and tobacco present wonderful stability to the sweetness and tones it all the way down to extra of an earthy heat. Beautiful!

Regardless that it will get extra masculine it sits completely as a unisex perfume – not too mild and never overly heavy on the musks and earthy notes. 

As soon as dried down that is in a phrase – lush.

What actually amazed me about this perfume was it is longevity on my pores and skin – it is fairly doable probably the most hardwearing and lengthy lasting of any aftershave I’ve ever tried earlier than. A few sprays within the morning and you’ll nonetheless detect it on pulse factors some 24 hours later – that is astounding. 

When testing this out I sprayed my wrists after which a few hours later had a bathe – even after a superb scrub within the bathe I might nonetheless decide up hints of the tonka bean and vetiver. Wow! 

Costly, sure, however price each penny. Sadly, this introduction to Eight & Bob goes to significantly destroy my checking account over the approaching years. Since I began scripting this put up I’ve had the prospect to wrap my sniffing sort out round just a few different choices from the model and like this they simply ooze luxurious high quality.
