If you go to Singapore you may want to check this incredible new attraction in Singapore. While you are there you can smell one iconic fragrance that was re-launched recently: Singapore Girl perfume.
Congratulations to Singapore Memories for being awarded for the Best Newcomer 2019 Best Fragrance (Femme) for their fragrance Singapore Girl. This iconic fragrance was created by Ms. Christina Balsara and Mr. Dadi Balsara in the 1960s. Ms. Cristina after she left Singapore for museum visits and ceramic appreciation, she found her inspiration to create Singapore scents. As soon as she returned to Singapore she developed Singapore Girl. Since the beginning, Singapore Girl was a favorite among locals and tourists and sold very well at department stores, and hotels.
In 1983, there was a rough patch in business, like most company’s experience. During this time, Mr. Dadi Balsara created another scent, known as Singapore Bliss, for a company called SIA and was a huge success when launched in 1988. After a long reign of impactful creations, in the year 2000, the now older Mrs. Christina Balsara and wanted to dial down her business to a smaller scale. Finally in 2007, Perfume of Singapore closed down the factories and shut down the business in 2008, and that was the last bit of their iconic presence.
Many orchids have been found to have medicinal properties, whether used in drugs, taken due to tonic potential, or used to cure chapped skin and bleeding sores. For example, Salep, a drug made from orchids Orchis Mascula and Orchis Militaris, was once extremely popular in Turkey. It was and is used in the Turkish ice cream bastani. Salep flour was also used in desserts and beverages mainly in the Ottoman empire, and in Syria and Palestine, it is a traditional winter beverage. Another instance is dendrobium, an orchid that is taken because of its tonic potential. Dried Dendrobium is believed to possess medicinal properties that can help treat cancer, strengthen the immune system, and improve eyesight.
Revival of Old & Iconic Singapore GirlT Perfume – ‘Singapore Girl’ scent was a brilliant mix of notes, designed for traditional, suave and sexy girl. Born in 1960’s, this beautiful creation had stopped production in 2006. We acquired this amazing formulation in 2014 and since then we have been producing it in hand-crafted, small batches. We have taken the original creation and we present you the same old beautiful fragrance. It was and still is, for a girl who knows how to balance traditional expectations with modern demands. She carefully manages expectations, and yet at the same time is carefree to enjoy her own independence. The top of the creation is soft-citrus. Lotus, Water-lily make the heart and and Teak-wood finishes this refreshing ode to her. Find more details on Singapore Girl Femme Fragrance.
An airport doesn’t sound like much of an attraction – more a series of interminable queues filled with tetchy flyers and shrieking babies. But Singapore’s Changi Airport has been voted the world’s best airport for the fifth consecutive year – and there’s much to marvel at here. Butterfly habitats, Balinese-style rooftop pools, 24-hour cinemas, spa centres, and the highly-raved Jewel Changi Airport – trust us, this ain’t your average airport. There are far worse stopovers during a long-haul flight. Once home to an orchard of fruit trees, this area of Singapore is now widely known as the shopping district. Stretching out over two kilometres in the centre of the city, Orchard Road is home to numerous coffeeshops, beauty salons, art galleries, hotels, designer and discount outlets, restaurants and nightclubs. Come armed with cash and plenty of it.
Built in 1894, Lau Pa Sat, once a wet market, is now a popular and atmospheric hawker centre. This historic building was built with Victorian filigree cast-iron and is located in the heart of Singapore’s business area. At lunchtime, it’s full of office workers, whereas, by night, the street is closed and the many food stalls serve plenty of local favourite dishes. Also known as Telok Ayer Market, standout dishes at Lau Pa Sat include sticks of tasty satay chicken with peanut dipping sauce and grilled stingray, covered in a spicy sambal sauce.
Once you’ve glimpsed this beautifully designed green space (from the top of the Marina Bay Sands, perhaps) you won’t be able to stay away. Wander through the Bay East Garden, perfect for enjoying the vibrant plant life and escaping the city bustle for a moment.
