Quintessentially Nigeria launches Exclusive Members Lounge in Lagos



The Quintessentially brand is expanding its portfolio of luxury services. On the 12th of February 2011, Quintessentially in collaboration with Dom Pérignon officially launched their Exclusive Members Lounge.

According to the Managing Director of Quintessentially, Funke Olufon, “Quintessentially is first and foremost a concierge services provider, which believes that life is too short to waste time on the mundane or second-best. Through partnerships with thousands of suppliers locally and globally, the Quintessentially team has years of experience with a wealth of contacts and connections which equip them in meeting members’ needs. All share a passion for quality wherever it is found and are committed to seeking it out for Quintessentially’s members

Besides the monetary advantages, membership also has the chance to enjoy a collection of goods, services, treats and practical help that makes a difference to members’ lives. The lounge is one such benefit where members and special guests can come for business meetings, networking opportunities or just to kick back with friends.

    the way naija men dress confuses me a lot – i dont know what to make of it. Do they even look in mirrors before leaving the house. Here in the US there is name we have for men who dress like that. Exclusivity ko, Exclusivity ni

    Congrats to Miss Olufon, I know she is making money from this. However I cannot but be worried for Nigeria- a country where we have no electricity but we have a super-exclusive concierge service. Somehow I’m not sure we have got our priorities straight as a nation.

    On another note, I have finally decided to include Olisa Adibua as a prayer point for 2011. He needs the intercession of at least 5 Mummy & Daddy GO’s. Saheed Sulaiman would win the award for The Most Toned Head of 2011 (damn!). Ruth Osime is another one that never fails to pack in the laughs, I tire for am oh. I was speaking with a well known male fashion designer the other day and he found the idea of Ruth Osime, as a Fashion Editor, to be biggest joke since Chris Okotie’s first presidential candidacy.

    Yes Mr George is happily married with new baby. His wife is stunning. So step off Ladies. Very handsome man and lovely too.

    • Ready

      February 25, 2011 at 12:39 pm

      Who is his wife….we probably should congratulate her; he’s the cutest well-dressed guy in this post. More Nigerian dudes should go bald; bald men are usually sexy.

    This olatunji boys are fond of repeating this same and exact outfit everywhere they go! Smh

    • Lagos Fashion Editor

      March 11, 2011 at 8:44 pm

      You have got to be kidding me. I am a fashion editor for one of the major Lifestyle magazines in Lagos. The Olatunji Brothers are one of the most classy and un-conventional male dressers in Lagos!…Socialites and celebrities are easy targets for very fickle ordinary people like you …. As a style editor i try my best to give a most un-biased opinion.

      Unlike a lot of guys who just stick to the predictable Black suit the Olatunji brothers consistently play with coloured pieces in a non-conventional way. I follow them very closely. I see hundreds of so called socialites in their league even Jide Adenuga repeat the same Black suits to events over and over again changing only the shirt underneath sometimes. Nothing wrong with repeating, as long as it looks good and it doesn’t end up a fashion disaster!… You must give honour to whomsoever honour is due. These boys play with colours, and definitely pay so much attention to detail in their dressing. However haven said that, there are only so many colours you can wear on a suit.
      I follow Bellanaija and many other blogs very closely keeping track of a lot of Nigerian celebrities..This is an un-true and un-constructive comment! The most laughable comment ever!!! The Olatunji brothers are one of the most unconventional, unique dressers in Lagos.
      Imagine saying Obaro Ibru repeated a suit!!!!!!…Now that sounds silly!..hahahahahahahaha..Thats exactly how you sound!!!!!! hahahaha…Errr so what!?!.lols :)))…….Thumbs up Bellanaija-THE NUMBER ONE NIGERIAN BLOGG-KEEP IT UP, GOD BLESS YOU & ALL THE STAFF DOWN THERE! YOU ROCK!!!!

      Well said Lagos Fashion Editor! you could not have said it better! ….i for one marvel each time i see these boys at events and wonder how they keep so up to date with their dress sense….i guess for alot of pple, if you cant beat them, hate-on-them abi???….but “Mummy March 10, 2011 at 7:12 PM” you’re sooo wrong think you got the wrong guys you most def got them mixed up with someonelse!!!

      WOW! Olatunji boys got endorsed by a Lagos Fashion Editor!…how cool is that!

      I do not know these brothers personally`but i love their P!!! Can I be a Mrs anyone of you?
