Carnival Time with Swatch
The two latest watch models from the New Gent Lacquered collection by Swatch are perfect accessories to match your Carnival party outfit. With an opening in the center of the dial, silver or gold depending on the model, the watches expose an intricate Swiss mechanism. Hours on the dial are marked with a dozen translucent crystals.

The Sunray Glam (SUOZ148) watch has a gold mechanism hiding underneath a gold dial. The casing is made of a single piece of white plastic with an elegant silicon strap. The Silver Glam (SUOZ147) model, in turn, boasts a silver mechanism emerging from behind a black dial in a black plastic casing with a black silicon strap.

New Take on Jewelry
The Kruk family of jewelers, who have been in the business for almost two centuries, are introducing a new jewelry line called Ania Kruk. Taking a new approach to jewelry, the Ania Kruk line of products is colorful, a little romantic and a little crazy, inventive, natural, stylish and thoroughly modern.

Ania Kruk, who is the artistic director behind the new brand, works with different Polish designers to seek out imaginative ideas and unusual materials such as resins, ceramics and leather straps. Some of those are imported from different corners of the world, but whether they are French ribbons or Italian beads, the jewelry as such is always designed and made in Poland.

Fit for a Queen
Fragrances from Grossmith, one of the oldest English perfume houses, are now available in Poland. Established in 1835 by John Grossmith in London, the Grossmith perfume house quickly earned a reputation as a producer of sophisticated perfumes that were sought after by royalty around the world. Today, Grossmith is owned by Simon Brooke who is the founder’s great-great-grandson. Brooke brought the Grossmith brand to the global market in 2009. Grossmith owns formulas for over 300 products, including 96 kinds of perfumes, 23 colognes and 10 essential oil blends which have enabled the company to recreate and refine three classic Grossmith fragrances: Hasu-no-Hana (1888), Phul-Nana (1891) and Shem-el-Nessim (1906). The packaging and flasks, inspired by the original Grossmith Baccarat flacon, were designed and made by the Holmes & Marchant company.

The reborn Grossmith Shem-el-Nessim faithfully reprises the original formula using Florentine iris, known for its rarity and expense, costing three times more than gold bullion. With its warm, soft, powdery and floral aspect, it is a scent which personifies the Edwardian era, in which femininity was feted. The head note of Shem-el-Nessim consists of bergamot and neroli oils. The heart note comprises rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and iris and the base note combines musk, patchouli oil, cedar wood, sandalwood, heliotrope and vanilla.

Smart Sound
The special edition of the HTC One X+ smartphone with the letter R on its back was designed to mark one of the most famous concert tours of the past several years, the 777 Diamond Tour by Rihanna. The tour spanned seven countries over seven days. The ONE X+ comes with Beats Audio™ technology which immerses users in music, allowing them to not only hear, but even feel every single tone. Deeper bass, clearer voice reproduction and crisper high tones add up to top-notch sound quality.
