It was time to party at the Mandarin Oriental when the speeches paused. Andrea Robinson, of the Estée Lauder Cos., and Artur Grynbaum, of O Boticário, each won Verdura rings in a contest at a special Willy Wonka-style candy shop set up in the lobby, and the Thursday night dinner started on a stress-reducing note as keynote speaker Horst Rechelbacher led a group massage before launching into his talk. Later that evening, an after party offered beach towels, not to mention Cuban-style, hand-rolled cigars and exotic drinks.
