Our nation’s 55th birthday is around the corner; a season when we all feel extra patriotic as we sing this is home, truly”.

Another pop-up to keep your eyes – and nose – peeled for is Singapore Memories, where you can receive a complimentary sample-sized scent by taking their perfume personality quiz. The coolest part? The scents are all inspired from Singapore heritage and localised experiences – such as walking through the Botanic Gardens or having a Singapore Sling cocktail.

True blue Singaporeans will immediately relate to the titles of their scents like “Pasar Malam” (U.P. $78) and “Mahjong and More” (U.P. $78) – the latter of which is creatively packed with the woody aroma of a mahjong table and tiles. As an avid mahjong player, my mom would surely appreciate it as a gift.

Take advantage of the 15% off discount they’ll be having until 11th August on their entire Singapore Memories range, except for the 18ML perfumes.
