When you think of Brioni, the sensuality of fine Italian cashmere, silk, and wool come to mind. It is a label that speaks to prestige and elegance, most notably for finely crafted luxury menswear. A made to measure Brioni suit is the ultimate male status symbol — a mark of quality for a man who won’t settle for less than perfection.
The Italian couturier has launched a brand new fragrance, simply named Brioni. As you would expect, the hand fashioned bottle is a work of art in itself, and suitable for the Brioni man with discriminating taste. Designers Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard created a modern bottle by hand that captures the movement of light and fabric in motion. Inspired by
We are now in the crucial weeks leading-up to the holidays when most of us spend evenings in warmth, cuddled-up at home with family and friends. What better time to light those gorgeous fragrant candles you’ve been holding on to, waiting for a very special occasion to use them. You only have to take a trip to Selfridges London to get an idea of how many home fragrance brands are competing for poll-position in Jo Malone’s wake. Whether you’re into never-to-be-lit artfully molded candles or super-efficient fragrance-diffusers, these few squared meters in central London are a treasure trove for home fragrance lovers.

I was introduced to this innovative Japanese brand by a fellow makeup fan who said I absolutely had to see it. I immediately noted the sleek design appeal and agreed to delve inby trying a round dark chocolate swivel case of pressed powder called Polish Face EX-01, that looks like modern art. The powder is designed in concentric rings of lighter and deeper tones, like the rings of a tree stump. The attention to detail is astonishing. The name SUQQU (pronounced SU-KU), in case you are wondering because I certainly was, was derived from the Japanese word sukku-to meaning “posture with attitude”. In the manner of Shiseido, SK-II and other brands that combine great design with product marvels, SUQQU is simply unique. The brush that accompanies the powder case is short and squat like a mushroom and glides softly over your skin. It comes in a small dark brown velvet pouch, like something that would normally be found to carry fine jewelry. The finish of the powder is like pure spun silk! It is sheer and light with a subtle pearlessence and is just lovely for your complexion.
FINAL VERDICT: GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – Luxurious quality brand with some clever concepts and innovative products – it is really quite extraordinary. It is only sold throughout Japan, Bangkok, and now exclusive to Selfridges London in the UK. If you are up for something different and stunning, definitely stop by the counter and have a look at what SUQQU offers. Expensive import but you won’t see yourself coming and going with this brand! www.suqqu.com
