Straits® Settlement was a group of British territories from 1826-1946 and it included few islands. Main separate commercial posts that formed its foundation were Penang (1786), Malacca (1795), Singapore (1819) and finally Labuan (1907)
Of these, Singapore was unique, because it was developed from scratch. Colony of Singapore was built by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles on behalf of the East India Company.
We dedicate this Scent to acres and acres of Rubber plantation which were developed for commercial reasons, but were filled with beautiful smells of variety of flora.
First practical rubber tire was made in 1888 & soon rubber demand grew exponentially.
Mr Ridley, a director in Botanic Garden Singapore was responsible for finding economic trees. He discovered many ways to grow & extract latex from rubber trees. His efforts turned rubber plantation in Straits Settlement so successful that soon 2.1 million acres of land was turned into Rubber plantation.
Even today, South-East Asia produces 2/3 of Global Natural Rubber. This fragrance will remind you of a peaceful walk through these rubber plantation. Soft singing and dance of the rain in SE-Asia.
