Singapore Memories Christmas Gift Ideas – Peranakan Oud

Peranakans have incredibly rich culture and this perfume celebrates just that. The unisex scent exudes the luxurious oud notes, mixed with Tonka bean, praline and green tobacco, creating a brilliantly warm and woody fragrance, which is equally loved by both men and ladies.

It is a perfect souvenir for someone looking to explore the beauty of Oud and richness of unique Peranakan. This perfume reminded us of the richness of Dubai perfumes but at a fraction of the cost.

Singapore Memories Christmas Gift Ideas – Vanda 1981

This perfume houses the scent of Vanda Orchids which will take you to another world. It’s familiar, and yet unfamiliar. A beautiful perfume for her. Makes a great Christmas gift for friends, or a birthday gift for her.

The scent is dedicated to Vanda Miss Joaquim and other celebrity Vanda Orchids*. If you are wondering, “Why 1981?”, the perfumer explains- “1981 was the year when Singapore started it’s journey to becoming 1st world country. This perfume celebrates the success of that year”. Our research agrees! In 1981, Changi Airport became fully operational; the Singapore River was cleaned; the port was the second busiest in worldwide, and when “The Kindness Movement” was launched.

Named after one of the most significant years in Singapore’s history and packing the sweet-smelling, powdery aroma of Vanda Orchids, this fragrance is for the intellectual and inquisitive ladies.

Singapore Memories Christmas Gift Ideas – Aranda 1965

1965 was another symbolic year for Singapore. It was the year that the island state gained independence. Despite our size, we developed into a first world country and became a significant player in the global arena.

We harvest the scent by further condensing the manly whiff into bottles with traces of musk, amber and wood.

Few famous Aranda Hybrids: Aranda Majulah; Aranda Lee Kuan Yew, amongst a very long list.
