Arrive at Sentosa in style when you at the Singapore Cable Car from Faber Peak Singapore down to Sentosa Station.

Top Notes are the first fragrances released when sprayed. It stays on the skin for a few minutes and then dissipates. It gives the first impression of the perfume which is commonly the selling point of the fragrance. Head notes are usually citrusy and spicy which normally last several minutes. Middle Notes, this is the emitted scent after the top notes disappear. The middle notes are more rounded and mellow to the nose with the usual fragrance of lavender, jasmine, and rose — basically the delicate floral scent. This usually lasts for several minutes to an hour.
Sir Raffles had a deep fascination for the diversity and he discovered a vast number of plants and animals in this region. The Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research was established from Raffles’ ideals in the 1800s. Today it’s called ‘Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum’ and houses the great zoological collection called ‘Raffles Collection’. We have taken some of these native plants and bring you “Raffles’ Heritage” to honor his contribution to Singaporean and Asian flora. Fun fact: Several plants are named after Sir Raffles, the most exotic of which is Rafflesia – World’s largest flower with no stem, no leaves and no root! Unfortunately, we couldn’t use it in our room fragrance. Smell it, if you want to know why! See extra details at Raffles Heritage.

Budget-friendly: As compared to other options of gifts available in perfume range, miniature ones are quite affordable. The gift pack looks expensive with its high-quality plastic box and carry case, but it is very budget friendly. You can get them in bulk without going overboard with your costing. Apart from all these benefits, there are a couple more aspects that make miniature fragrances best corporate gifts. This plant was sacred to the Native Americans. It’s often braided before it dries, which is how you will find it for purchase. Sweetgrass has a light, sweet scent when burnt and is often used in conjunction with sage. After sage has chased out bad energy, sweetgrass attracts positive energy into the space. It is good for cleansing sacred space and is burned by many during prayers. Frankincense is the dried resin of an African tree. Once prized equally with myrrh and gold, it’s used in meditation and healing. This herb has a long history, especially known for cleansing and protecting the soul. I have heard of it being used to help ease the transition into death when it’s necessary for someone to let go.
The generic name, ‘children of the air’, is derived from Greek aer (air) and eides (resembling), referring to its epiphytic nature and the way such orchids are cultivated. A. crispa is a large, tough, robust epiphyte. Young leaves are typically covered with purple spots. Inflorescence is up to 35 cm long, drooping, branching, loosely many-flowered. Ear-drops prepared by boiling the pulverised plant in neem oil, are instilled 2–3 drops at a time into the ear every night to treat earache in the Western Ghats. A. crispa contains aeridin, a bactericidal phenanthropyran. The contribution of aeridin to the management of earache is undetermined, but it works as a bactericide.
