Welcome to Asia. The continent is as vast as it is diverse and its history goes back thousands of years. The civilizations of Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and the Yellow River are among the earliest discovered yet, and their combined innovative contributions include mathematics, writing and the wheel. This is the continent of peaceful religions and philosophies, ancient ruins, enlightenment and deafening commotion, experiences that excite all the senses.
Asia, the room fragrance by Singapore Memories was created to evoke the aromas experienced in Asia. The mysterious history, bizarre spectacles, mouth-watering delicacies, and the antithesis of commotion and harmony, often experienced from one moment to the next. These are the memories of Asia that are re-awakened with this nostalgic scent.
Discovering the diversity of Asia, one is surprised by countries steeped in traditions, cultures, and architecture while at the same time being modern and fast-paced. Grand palaces, temples, and shrines are offset with wonderful shopping experiences, culinary delights, and deeply meaningful festivals.
Home to several language families, most countries in Asia have more than one native language and in India, more than 800 languages are spoken, 600 in Indonesia and 100 in the Philippines. This colorfully diverse continent and its people welcome visitors to explore their past, their rituals and their modern megacities that are a hive of activity, both during the day and night. The continent of the samurai, the martial arts and Genghis Khan has also given birth to all the great religions of the world.
Asia has a wild, natural side that includes splendors like the Himalayas with the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest, Siberia, equatorial rain forests, deciduous forests, the steppe, deserts, the Dead Sea, and Lake Baikal. Its coastline is 62,800 km in length and the continent has some spectacular beaches and elevations of Central Asia and their snow-capped peaks give rise to some of the great rivers of the continent.
The aromas of Asia represent harmony, calm, and peace a true blend of Asian cultures. A fragrance inspired by Asia also has to have orchid scents to complete it.
Encylia Polybulbon is an orchid found deep in the humid forests of Central America and usually grows on tree varieties in these forests, especially oak. Its aroma is similar to that of a very rare type of Sandalwood and carries a hint of cloves.
Bulbophyllum Ambrosia is also known as the fragrant stone bean orchid (Fangxuianshidou Lan or Xianshidou Lan) by the Chinese. This orchid is native to the deciduous forests of Asia, grows on limestone, and blooms in winter. Its flower is sweetly fragrant.
The fragrant stone bean orchid is a cooling herb and is also used in Chinese medicine to treats hepatitis and coughs.
Asia, the calming scent from Singapore Memories is inspired by the continent and is achieved with soothing orchids that resemble sandalwood and cooling herbs. This is the perfect souvenir and a unique corporate gift from Singapore.
Namaste, Ni-Hao and Apa-Khabar; greetings from Singapore!
