From 17 April to 18 May 2015, the National Museum will put on display 12 unique smells in SINGAPURA:700 years, an exhibition which showcases an olfactory translation of Singapore history. These smells are conceived by Mrs Prachi Garg, founder of Je t’aime Perfumery and an Olfactory-artist.
Besides this display, Prachi will also organise a ‘Perfume Workshop’ where Singaporeans can create their own idea of a ‘Scent of the Nation’ on 2 May 2015.
Each participant will get the chance to learn the techniques of perfume making and how to mix different ingredients to create your unique Scent of the Nation. Before the workshop, participants will have a chance to join the museum-volunteers on a guided tour to smell your way through Singapore’s history and experience her transformation from a humble fishing village to the pride of an empire, before becoming an independent nation-state as she is today.
Each participant gets to keep a 75ml bottle of perfume they create.
Venue: National Museum of Singapore
Tickets for this event will be on sale on SISTIC from 10 April.
When: 2 May 2015,
