Second Passport

The Elevator to Success

Citizenship is something that can not be choosen at

birth. However, nowadays investing in an alternative

passport can be a powerful tool. Nationality can oblige

as well as privilege, and taxation can be a serious cut in

earnings. Therefore a second passport acquisition have

become an indispensable deal for businessmen and

entrepreneurs all around the world.

While some programs offer the possibility of gaining

citizenship in exchange for an approved business or real

estate investment as well as including the whole family

members, some more affordable options are possible by

making a contribution to a government development

fund starting from USD$ 100,000.

Depending on requirements, Caribbean and European

passports can give access to more than 120 countries

including UK, Shengen area, Hong Kong, Singapore.

Traveling, healthcare, education are only some tangible

attributes, the real value of this investment is security.

Citizenship by investment is a way of solving problems

and gaining profits. A deal that allows to obtain a

second nationality in a matter of months and improve

life for the better. It is a purchase of splendor available

for the lucky few.

Yulia Smolina, the founder and

director of luxury

Beauty centre DAVIANI beauty&SPA


In Daviani we have the most advanced technology and

equipment. I have personally attended many different

expositions, conferences to get a sufficient amount of

knowledge for the correct choice of equipment, cosmetics and

technologies. About some exclusive items – certainly, we are

studying the market, trends and in the work we use only the best

and with an already proven reputation.

In our beauty centre there are: multifunctional machine for face

and body Icoone with unique technology of vacuum effect on

the skin of the face and body and the latest epilation laser

Soprano XL Ice in a gold colour which can be found in Moscow

only in a few salons. And also we have rare cosmetic lines, such

as Evidens de beaute'. It is rarely presented for sale and in a

much smaller amount for professional care. We are proud of

this. The result is stunning. All treatments are unique in their

composition and names.

The motto of the beauty centre – " Place where beauty

becomes a lifestyle"

Beauty. The beauty should be always and in everything. To

dress in good taste is beauty. To have a well-groomed

appearance is beauty. Beauty is both a job and a car and

everything that surrounds us.

Lifestyle. Everyone chooses his/her own lifestyle but with

today's pace of life in the rhythm of the megapolis you need

to have time for everything, saving the beauty and health.

Place. Beauty centre Daviani beauty&SPA is a place where

beauty lives. Each element of interior design is chosen with

great love. All equipment and cosmetics – combine the best

latest trends to maintain the natural beauty of the client.

We always do not have time to devote time to ourselves, and

without this it is difficult to constantly move forward. To look

thoroughly at the painting in the museum you need to stop

and take a few steps back. The same is needed to understand

yourself. To stop, to rest, to analyse emotions and feelings, to

bring intermediate results, to spend time alone with yourself

– this means to open doors in the present and the future. That

is why, the phrase "Place where beauty becomes a lifestyle"

became the Daviani motto. Here is the place where time

slows down and appears an opportunity to devote more

attention to yourself.

DAVIANI is an artwork

Yes, one of my main hobbies is the design, construction,

interiors, design, decor... It's not a design in itself, it is my

vision. Volume, design - how space should sound and merge

into one whole place. I like designing interiors. Entering the

building area, in my mind immediately emerges a picture of

future interiors.

Even the DAVIANI logo was thought and developed as an

art-object. Delicate, soft lines, contours – I wanted to convey

emotion, mood and character of a person. And at the same

time – the promise that is associated with the desire to move

forward, up to the goal.

The uniqueness of Daviani beauty&SPA

Many people ask me in what way Daviani differs from other

premium beauty centres. Certainly, this is not a standard

method of development. Classic back office of any beauty

centre– one manager and one accountant. But knowing how

hard it is to do everything single-handedly in our format of

movement– ambitious, and that does not fit into the usual

framework that is why, our team is big enough.

We have the modern system of business management, we do

regular assessment of client's satisfaction, quick and effective

response to their wishes and expectations.

Maraca Generalife Gardens candle and diffuser, was inspired

by the historic Jardines del Generalife gardens in Granada,


How closely are creating candles and fragrances related?

They are two completely different things, and blending the

fragrance and wax together can be quite complex at times.

It involves vigorous testing to ensure the scent remains the

same in a candle as it does as a pure fragrance. Some fragrances

are just too delicate and don’t combine well with wax, so

the formulation needs tweaking to make it work. For instance,

my latest citrus fragrance, Sevillian Neroli, has taken me more

than a year to develop. The citrus notes are usually quite thin

and so the temperature has to be set perfectly when pouring

the wax and fragrance together, or else the fragrance will vanish

quickly during the process.

What are some of your more unusual combinations?

Generalife Gardens! This is definitely the most unusual fragrance

I have created - it’s like a green garden in a jar. The

notes consist of green tomato leaf, wild fig, blackcunant,

grapefruit and galbanum.

Any tips on candle care?

Five Minutes With...

Chris Lim

Founder and ‘nose’ of Maraca

The first time you light your candle, do not trim the wick-this

first bum needs a high hot flame to melt the wax right to the

edge of the vessel, which will encourage even burning. Do not

extinguish the first flame until the entire top layer turns into

liquid wax. This may take up to an hour or more depending on

the size of the candle. After the first burn, try to let the candle

bum for long stretches to encourage the wax to evenly melt

and to prevent wax tunneling. Burn for periods of no more

than three hours at a time. Always trim the wick to a quarter

of an inch before you light the candle again after the first bum.

How did you become a ‘nose’?

A ‘nose’ is a person whose olfactory skill is used to compose

fragrances. I grew up surrounded by fragrance - my mum and

aunt both worked in the industry. I’ve been working in the industry

since I was 17 and found I had a natural gift for detecting

notes and determining what works well together. Becoming

a nose takes passion and a bit of natural skill. It can take

months or years to come up with a great fragrance.

Do you have to take care of your senses to retain your role?

Everything I see, feel, touch, smell and observe every day is

part of my inspiration. As a nose, I am essentially a designer

and need to understand and know the current trends, fashion

and culture. Memories and visiting new places inspire my

scents - for example, my second latest creation this year, the

“At any time of the day or night”:

Connoisseurs of the sparkling delicacy will

gladly follow this recommendation for

enjoying POMMERY.

POMMERY Champagne is a perfect

accompaniment as an aperitif, complements

every dinner and is also a luxurious

refreshment for every occasion.

In fact, is there anything more tempting than

enjoying the anticipation and getting in the

mood for spring time, the weekend or a mild

summer night with a glass of POMMERY

Rosé Champagne? Discreet apricot shades,

elegant fruity aromas and a delicate perlage:

The POMMERY Rosé Champagnes surprise

even enamoured couples and experts with their

friendly lightness.

Already in 1858 Madame Pommery very aptly

noted that a glass of cooled champagne is the

highlight of any given moment. You would

like to celebrate the feast of your life?

© Denise Schuster | Foodlovin.de


The champagne house from Reims does not

only stand for refinement and perfection, but

also for innovation.

Madame Pommery opened up “what was the

biggest building site of the century in Reims”:

the metamorphosis of the chalk-pits into

cellars. 18 km of galleries were hollowed out

into the chalk that have since housed over 20

million bottles of Champagne 30 metres below

ground with just one legendary staircase

leading down to the POMMERY treasure.

Even if all wines of the POMMERY house are

fully interfused by Madame Pommery´s

creative spirit, it comes to its fullest perfection

in the Cuveé Louise - a characteristic blend of

purity, finesse and elegance.

The Cuvée Louise is a master composition to

fall in love with. It is always different and ever

unique: conserved in the dark, slowly matured

naturally – time and the freshness of the chalk

work their magic. Eight years are required for

its aromas of apricot, brioche and touch of

orange blossoms to reach complete perfection.

Enjoying champagne from the house of

POMMERY in a stylish gathering means

sharing a piece of life. Tchin-tchin!

Driving The Dream:

Six Tips On Financing Your Next Car

Sometimes a prestige vehicle may seem out of reach,

however financing your purchase can be beneficial. Here

are six pragmatic reasons why:

1. Taking on a vehicle or asset loan means you can spread

out the cost, resulting in better control of your finances,

and less capital instantly sunk.

2. Financing potentially could get you a vehicle that you

otherwise may not afford upfront. For those who could

afford to purchase a car outright, using car finance offers

the opportunity to own, and drive, a better model

than the one that would be affordable via an upfront

payment in full.

3. This does not mean that you should take on a car loan

bigger than you can afford. Utilise Finance Brokers to

shop loans for you, they will stress test the loan, to see if

you can afford the monthly payments.

4. May help to boost your credit standing. Finance provides

a good opportunity to demonstrate the ability to manage

credit well and to meet repayment schedules. So long as

the payments are consistently made on time.

5. Choices. How suitable car finance options are to individuals

are largely dependent on the nature of cash-flow in

their business, or credit score. The variety of different

products/packages means that there is something for


6. Know the terms of the loan, additional fees, monthly

payments and penalties associated with making late

payments or even double payments. A finance broker

will be able to assist you with this.

If you would like to discuss car financing opportunities,

Nonpareil Finance can assist with a full range of Vehicle,

Asset, and Commercial loan products, as well as Insurance.




The Luxury Network Germany Hosts Exclusive VIP

Trip to The Champagne Region in France

This “Money cannot buy” weekend

event from the 5th – 7th May was

designed by The Luxury Network

ultimately for the top customers of its

members. Due to the strictly limited

number of 25 participants it was fully

booked within a short time.

The group of like-minded connoisseurs

met on May 5 after a relaxed pre-extension

at the Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt.

The 5-star Deluxe Hotel is part of The

Luxury Network’s membership portfolio

and was the starting point of a special

lifestyle experience. As a prelude and

first taste of future exciting events, each

participant received a wonderful giveaway

with personal greetings from the

event partner Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

Thanks to the dedicated support of Tesla

Motors and the Dörr Group, also members

of The Luxury Network, guests were

spoiled for choice between a mix of a variety

of new Tesla vehicle models, Lotus,

McLaren and Lamborghinis, all of which

are equally standing for Luxury class and

unlimited driving fun. After each vehicle

had found its temporary new owner, the

guided outing started at best weather

conditions in a convoy heading southwest

in the direction of France, with the

final destination of Reims and the Domaine

Pommery, one of the most beautiful

properties in Champagne.




The first stage of the journey took us

across the picturesque wine route and

the South Palatinate to Alsace, where

this illustrious crowd checked in at the

romantic hotel “Auberge du Cheval

Blanc”. Here, at the foot of the Vosges,

you could let your mind wander or alternatively

take a shot with your favourite

vehicle in the idyllic surroundings.

The participants were then looking forward

to a culinary evening, which after a

get-together champagne reception was

marked by a gourmet dinner created by

the star cook Pascal Bastian, celebrated

in the in-house 2-star Michelin restaurant

“Le Cheval Blanc”. At the latest now

every guest felt in fact “Like Heaven on


After a relaxing night and a strengthening

breakfast with home-made delicacies,

which did not leave any wishes unfulfilled,

the convoy continued cheerfully

and in the best frame of mind its journey

to The Champagne and the renowned

Domaine Pommery.

At the arrival of this concentrated PS

Power around midday, just like magic the

impressive gate of the Domaine opened

to welcome as the main host all the

guests with great “hello”.

The “VIP Pommery Experience” began

like the typical French way of life with

an extended lunch – of course – accompanied

by champagne and followed by a

private tour of the cellars. At the same

time, you could marvel at a collection of

contemporary art that could make some

museums jealous. A short taxi transfer

took the already friendly connected

group to the hotel, where everybody got

ready for the upcoming big Farewell dinner

in the legendary Villa Demoiselle.




As a final highlight, the Villa Demoiselle

captivated the participants for a glamorous

evening in closed circle. Under

the expert guidance of the host Thomas

Wirz, Managing Director of Vranken-Pommery

Germany & Austria, the

guests first enjoyed insider views into

the history of this outstanding tribute to

the Belle Époque era. In style and in line

with the location, the famous “Demoiselle

Rosé” was served as a cocktail from

Jeroboam bottles as you walked through

the mansions, inspired by the spirit of

the past. Before the dinner, the group

gathered in the flowering garden of the

villa, where everything was prepared for

a “Sabrage”. Some guests faced the challenge

and, with the short introduction

of the Master of Ceremonies, skillfully

opened a bottle of champagne with a saber.

Following the French habits, the beheaded

head with cork and date of the ceremony

was handed over to them as a sign

of good luck. At the festive dinner, the

excellent champagne accompaniment

was thoughtfully coordinated with the

menu, including a “Demoiselle La Parisienne

2007” as well as the sensational

“Diamant Brut” and “Diamant Rosé” to

accomplish a perfect finale of this “VIP

Pommery Experience”.

All good things come to an end and

therefore after this unforgettable evening

and with many more memorable

new impressions in the luggage, the return

journey to Germany was due the

next day. At the farewell, plans had been

made already to meet up again in the future

and The Luxury Network Deutschland

along with their event partners can

look back on a successful weekend event

with overwhelmingly positive feedback

from the participants.

Enjoy Thrill and

Glamour of

Monaco Grand Prix


he Luxury Network UK members were invited

to experience the thrill and glamour of the

Monaco Grand Prix from the deck of a

trackside superyacht.

For a networking event like no other, members

enjoyed VIP treatment courtesy of event

management agency and fellow The Luxury

Network members, Red Eye Events. Offering

arguably the best views of the course, their

stunning 45 metre superyacht was moored

literally a few feet from the track action. Guests

enjoyed an all day open bar including Mumm

Champagne and Martini cocktails and were

treated to a lavish gourmet buffet lunch whilst

they viewed the Formula 1 racing.

In the brilliant sunshine, introductions were made

and friendships cemented to the roar of the cars

and the truly awesome array of surrounding multi

million pound superyachts. Surely there is no

more enjoyable way of doing business!

Red Eye Events specialise in the organisation of

exclusive hospitality experiences, incentives and

group travel. Their flagship event is the Monaco

Grand Prix where they have provided trackside

yacht hospitality, terrace viewing and hotel

accommodation for over 12 years.

Launch Event

We are delighted to announce the official Press launch of

party on the 6th July 2017, hosted by Porsche Centre Lagos.

The evening commenced with an opening speech by John

Woodruffe, Director, West Africa Department for International

Trade, and an introduction of The Luxury Network Nigeria

There was an introduction of the founding members – Porsche,

The Wheatbaker Hotel, Deola Sagoe, and Robert Taylor Media

Inc. and some discussion about the 4-fold vision of The Luxury

Network for the Nigerian market:

1. To set a new standard for the term ‘luxury’ inside Nigeria.

2. To create a consortium of the finest luxury brands and

high-end service providers within Nigeria, and facilitate

discussion and collaboration between Member Brands for

mutual business and client development.

3. To provide a low-risk market entry strategy for international

brands .

4. To increase brand exposure for Nigerian brands on the

International stage, by enabling dialogue between the finest

‘Made in Nigeria’ brands and world-renowned luxury


The proposition of the Nigerian network caters to both luxury

brands inside Nigeria and luxury brands outside Nigeria, who

wish to enter the market. So we are very excited to begin the

journey of creating unique partnerships and to push forward a

new conversation about luxury in Africa.
