Ever wondered how things that you have always heard about in Singapore history smells like? Ever wondered how it might feel to be living in a certain era in Singapore?
With inputs from our Museum volunteers, curators, Mrs Prachi Saini Garg and Je ‘taime Perfumery, special scents are created and adopted to give visitors an added dimension to experience the exhibition SINGAPURA: 700 Years
"The Olfactory art work will be part of 'Singapore Heritage Festival'. Into its 12th year, National Heritage Board’s signature Singapore HeritageFest promises yet another edition of heritage fun! Spanning five weekends from 17 April to 18 May, Singapore HeritageFest 2015 will be the largest edition to date with many more community partners coming on board to contribute and participate. In the festival’s spirit of celebration and discovery, explore familiar places, rediscover the lesser known and forgotten stories behind their past, and come to appreciate them in a whole new way. From our humble beginnings on the banks of the Singapore River, to our heartlands and neighbourhoods that are unique in their own ways, join us as we celebrate not just what connects us as one, but also our diversity that make us truly Singaporean."

Sherona is the rock on which this perfumery was founded. She has a degree in Chemical-Engg from Australia and multiple diplomas in Cosmetic-sciences, Pharmaceutical Technology etc. She recently accepted a contract to research and extract Orchid oils. She works as a volunteer-consultant on weekends.
There was a time when Photography was not considered an art-form. Olfactory-art today, is in similar stage. It's growing, becoming more acceptable and creating a niche of its own, but it's long way from it's deserved place.
Thanks to hand-full of people who have worked very hard, Olfactory-art had it's first major exhibition in Smithsonian Museum in USA. There are few known and unknown artists who have combined traditional art Olfaction and come up with interesting work.
We are trying to create awareness about Olfactory-art in Singapore. We welcome all your thoughts on possible collaborations.

She has keen interest in 'Fragrance Chemistry' and love to work with Schools, Science Center and other Museums to show practical application of Biology and Chemistry to young Adults.

XinYing Wang has a keen nose and is an absolute workaholic! She probably has best nose amongst all of us.
Prachi Saini started Je T’aime Perfumery with the vision of bringing the mysterious art of perfume design to a wider audience. Prior to following her passion in designing signature scents, she worked for nearly 10 years in the architecture and infrastructure construction industries in the USA and India.
Now based in Singapore, she works together with her team to host fragrance workshops and parties where consumers can discover and create their own signature scents. Aside from leading these intimate workshop sessions, Prachi also works closely with consumers to design their signature fragrances, from suggesting ingredients based on their favourite perfumes to designing a formula with their ideas.
We established this place, so you can express yourself using Aromas.
We know how expensive it can be to buy a basic set of 'olfactory material', especially if you are looking for high-quality. So we decided to gather the best available material for you. You can use it to make a Custom Scent, Olfactory art, Signature Fragrances or a perfect gift for someone you love.
Our work and talk were well received in Singapore Art Museum (SAM), Singapore Science Center, Heritage Festival, Design Week, National Design Center, National Museum Singapore, China Town Heritage Center, Indian Heritage Center and more.
We are Member of Singapore Attraction (ASA) and also Marked as 15 inspiring experiences (#9) in Singapore by STB and YourSingapore.
