BRIDGE TO A NEW WORLD
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.

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
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...
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

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
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
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.
