Taste of Life
Launched in 2009, Taste of Life is the only luxury bi-lingual (Chinese and English) lifestyle magazine in Canada. Affluent Chinese, Asian and Canadian subscribers in Vancouver and Toronto rely on the magazine as their guide to a truly elegant lifestyle – it serves as a gateway for Asian immigrants to discover and appreciate Western values and for westerners to understand authentic Chinese culture. It’s distributed to select Vancouver and Toronto homes; to VIP guests who attend Taste of Life’s upscale events (e.g., hosted tea at the Shangri-La and the first luxury, invitation-only, show home event in Canada); and through private clubs, wealth management firms, Holt Renfrew, etc. (total distribution 35,000). A Paris edition also shares content. The multi-cultural team takes great care to ensure the magazine’s layout and text are beautiful; that’s because the magazine is intended to be a luxury product in and of itself.
