Lifestyle is a journey of experiences, emotions and tastes. Stark Magazine introduces you to a new brand of products that transmits wealth and freedom. Established in Lugano in 2016 Pacifique Avant Garde changed the face of the marked and brought ‘a new extra-sensorial dimension’ to the lifestyle of their customers.

Influenced by the creativity and lifestyle of his multicultural family, Daniel Mkongo created the Swiss brand with a mission to provide his customers with a status symbol for elegance and power. You can find Daniel on the cover of our last issue Autumn/Winter 2017. His sensational brand consists of a range of luxury products from teas to fragrances and candles. Consumers find themselves infused with confidence and freedom through the craftsmanship and innovation of each product.

Using only premium quality ingredients in collaboration with connoisseurs, Pacifique AV promises blends with the best tasting profiles in the world. Having established strong Ethical Partnerships, the brand introduces the carefully crafted Tea Selection designed and consisting only of hand-made products. The selection of blends is intended to match anyone’s taste. Pacifique AV offers teas such as the Energy Boost blend, made with guarana, dandelion, White Tea Mao Feng and other exotic ingredients. The Spicy Feelings tea is another addition crafted with cardamom, black Assam South Indian tea and other tasting notes such as licorice roots. But the luxurious craftsmanship of the Swiss brand doesn’t end there.

Pacifique Avant Garde also designs fragrances including the sexy Acid Bomb, the irresistible Hot & Spicy and the compelling scent, entitled The Beast. All fragrances are created through the collaboration with award-winning Nosologists in New York City. Combining fresh and sour, a complex mix of berries, leaves and spices, or bringing forward animalistic, dark and mysterious scents, these products bring more than a fragrance. They symbolise taste and sensation. In exchange for £87.99 consumers can infuse their individuality with a bold status symbol of self-confidence and wealth.

With no artificial waxes or oil-based additives, the Pacifique candles burn fully without any smoke. For only £35.99, customers can purchase quality notes of Fleur de Sel, Caribbean sugar or the wild scent of Room No. 33.
