A quote from Dr. Scott about Luxury:

“Luxury isn’t just a question of expensive and beautiful things for the rich and powerful,” says Dr Scott. “It feeds into ideas of democracy and patriotism, of social harmony and epic courage, not to mention our values as individuals and our relationships with the divine. Indeed the most fascinating thing about luxury is that it is almost impossible to define, and yet we all know it when we see it, because we each have our own ideas of what luxury is (for some – including me – it might be as simple as a day off!) It all depends on who you are. That’s what makes luxury so good to think with as a way into understanding societies, past and present.”

We totally agree!

EAT LOVE SAVOR® has, since 2010, been more than a virtual platform and print magazine. It is an affluent lifestyle foundation for all the tiers of wealth: from mid-level to core affluent, from high net worth, to ultra high net worth. This readership desires the most clarifying, yet nuanced information on luxury travel, cuisine, home décor, jewelry, and real estate. Within our pages, the reader finds content that identifies the Zeitgeist of the affluent human experience — travels that expand awareness, cuisine that underscores and heightens the perfectibility of taste, objets d’art that exude singularity, provenance and worth. In all these, we strive to seek the meanings beyond elite, elegant, and excellent. We seek the sublime, as we experience what is beyond the horizon, with a copy of EAT LOVE SAVOR® as our guide.
