Tai Tai is a Chinese colloquial term used to describe the head-wife of a polygyny (multi-wife) family. This term came to slowly mean “a wealthy married woman, who doesn’t work for a living”.
Tai Tai’s House is the room fragrance by Singapore Memories that is inspired by the aromas that surround the woman who knows how to enjoy the lifestyle that her husband can afford to offer her.
Are you a Tai Tai?
Tai Tai’s usually have plenty of leisure time to pursue their interests. These often include shopping trips to the up-market boutiques and department stores frequented by the rich of Singapore. Here they browse and shop luxury goods, especially bags and shoes that often cost more than twice the salary of the average working person. Afterward they lunch or have coffee at the most popular cafes or restaurants, where they meet friends to catch up on the latest gossip, discuss what to wear at the next major event and the latest fashion trends.
They often travel to the cities where the world’s most famous designers present their latest collections. These cities include Paris, Milan, London, and New York.
Tai Tais are always dressed in the latest fashion trends and never omit to wear jewelry. Their accessories, including their sunglasses, are designed by the most famous designer around the globe and they only wear designer scent that they bring back from overseas trips.
Their hair is done at the most expensive salons where it is colored and cut very regularly. Regular appointment for manicures and pedicures are never missed and they maintain their youthfulness with special spa treatments, massages, botox treatments, and plastic surgery. They always wear makeup on their perfect skins and only buy the best, including the most expensive skin lotions.
Expensive as their bags are, they will never be used again after their fashion has passed and they are often collectors of rare bags. In their purses are nestled credit cards that have no limit and they have the latest model of their favorite Smartphone.
At home Tai Tais expect the same perfection. They have the most beautiful home in their neighborhood and it is always perfectly clean because they have house help. They pay the same attention to the finer details of their home as they pay on their personal appearance. The furnishings, curtains and crockery are always of the best quality and when they entertain, everyone will be in awe with their luxurious home. They always serve the best food and drinks, prepared by their staff or caterers and the conversation revolve around their lifestyle and forthcoming shopping trips abroad.
Now that you know if you are a Tai Tai, Tai Tai’s House is the perfect souvenir to take home from Singapore or to give as a corporate gift. Singapore Memories have combined all the aromas associated with a luxurious lifestyle and the room fragrance will be a reminder of shopping trips at the malls of the Kampong Glam.
