The category included entries from some of the leading international fragrance houses: Shiseido ZenTM Eau de Parfum, Burberry The Beat, Prada Infusion D’Homme Eau de Toilette, Beckham Signature Men, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Parfum, Beckham Signature Women, John Galliano Eau de Parfum, B Spot by Benefit, Paco Rabanne 1 Million Eau de Toilette, Calvin Klein Secret Obsession, Urban Retreat Rendevous Eau de Toilette, Chloe EDP, Jo Wood Organics EDT, Lanvin Jeanne Lanvin, Versace Pour Homme EDT
Richard Cann, Berkeley Square Marketing Manager commented “Berkeley Square is delighted to receive the Silver award at the UK Beauty Awards. We are a small passionate company committed to supporting British perfumery and the UK beauty scene.
“We are also proud that even in such a testing economic climate we have created new jobs in the UK this year and continuing to grow within a saturated industry.”
BSQ. Natural Couture contains no parabens, no mineral oils, no SLES, no harsh preservatives, no artificial colours and no ethanol perfume bases. The BSQ Natural Couture collection also includes nourishing body butter, softening body lotion, refreshing shower cream, moisturising shea butter soap and intensive hand & nail cream. The range of premium fragrances and body care products were created following a three year collaboration with the V&A museum and feature imagery from legendary fashion photographer John French. The beautiful, delicate fragrances are classic with a contemporary twist set on a natural pure grain base (ethanol free).
The UK Beauty Awards acknowledges the industry’s best beauty, skincare, bodycare, cosmetic and hair products as well as fragrances and Soil Association certified organic products. All of the products have been nominated by beauty PR agencies and then shortlisted by beauty editors, journalists and industry professionals. The voting was done by the readers of handbag.com
