The fourth edition of the Luxury Beauty Brunch was held at ORIKI Spa in Victoria Island with selected beauty editors/enthusiasts in attendance.
The event kicked off at the serene ORIKI Spa with its first speaker, Tope Omai, Founder of the Mystiquee Perfumery who educated the crowd on the specific “notes” and the variety of “essential oils” required to make perfumes, as well as her trips to places like France to source for some of those “raw essences”. The speech on the “art of perfumery” was quite enlightening and special guests came prepared to ask a series of questions.
Enquiries were made on challenges encountered in the “World of Fragrance/Perfume making? To which she replied that - customs related issues were a “fixable” barrier amongst the normal challenges faced by the normal business man/woman but her passion far supersedes any possible challenge
The Zaron experience added the much needed “beauty tips/tricks” to the brunch, Brunching guests (who were catered for by the Hospitality Partner Casper and Gambinis Nigeria) were shown the techniques on how to improve their make-up application regime. Guests were later gifted products from the brand.
Some brief speeches were given by PR person for Mahnoush Beauty Place, Moriam Musa and the Founder of the Stephanie Nicholas Beauty & Wellness which concentrates on the range of services provided by their various brands and Stephanie Kalu Uche emphasized on the reason for her decision to make her range of products “fragrance-free”.
Other Perfume Houses on ground like “Supreme Bouquet” bosses Mariam Afolabi and Helen Akinbamiyorin also ensured the guests sampled their perfumes whilst taking them through the journey of how they started their line of perfumes.
The “fabulously fun” aspect of the brunch had guests drawing a picture of their favourite perfume bottle in the “art meets beauty” competition. The organisers use this segment of the brunch to conduct a market research based on their theme. Best Touch of Red and Best “Beauty Meets Brain” session were also picked, these aspects of the brunch always add fun touches to the brunch.
Tayo Afolabi, the host who wore an Elegante by Tiannah outfit shared her excitement after the event, “Our partners helped us to deliver an excellent brunch and we thank Cointreau for making sure our guests were refreshed with chilled cocktails, Gala Rosa wines for ensuring our glasses were filled, our hospitality partner Casper and Gambinis Nigeria Aralia by Nature for our beautiful flowers, Prive Events, House of Doughnuts, Luxury Pictures, Pure Cosmetics, Aweni Organics for our gorgeous goody boxes and our special Host partner ORIKI Spa.
