If you visit to Singapore you may want to check this awesome new attraction in Singapore. While you are there you can smell one iconic fragrance that was re-launched recently: Singapore Girl perfume. Congratulations to Singapore Memories for being awarded for the Best Newcomer 2019 Best Fragrance (Femme) for their fragrance Singapore Girl. This iconic fragrance was created by Ms. Christina Balsara and Mr. Dadi Balsara in the 1960s. Ms. Cristina after she left Singapore for museum visits and ceramic appreciation, she found her inspiration to create Singapore scents. As soon as she returned to Singapore she developed Singapore Girl. Since the beginning, Singapore Girl was a favorite among locals and tourists and sold very well at department stores, and hotels.
The generic name, ‘children of the air’, is derived from Greek aer (air) and eides (resembling), referring to its epiphytic nature and the way such orchids are cultivated. A. crispa is a large, tough, robust epiphyte. Young leaves are typically covered with purple spots. In?orescence is up to 35 cm long, drooping, branching, loosely many-flowered. Ear-drops prepared by boiling the pulverised plant in neem oil, are instilled 2–3 drops at a time into the ear every night to treat earache in the Western Ghats. A. crispa contains aeridin, a bactericidal phenanthropyran. The contribution of aeridin to the management of earache is undetermined, but it works as a bactericide.
Take a walk on the wild side as you step foot on one of Singapore’s most popular off-shore islands. A sprawling 1,020 hectares, Ubin boasts lush greenery and abundant wildlife, drawing nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts to explore the many wonders of the granite island. There are plenty of activities to get up to here: go birdwatching at Pekan Quarry, wander through nature trails, and hike 75 metres up Puaka Hill for a breathtaking panoramic view of the islet.
At the River Safari, visitors ride a boat through Singapore’s tropical forests. Freshwater animals live on either side of the river, including American beavers, anacondas and adorable giant pandas. Missing island-hopping in Thailand and Indonesia? Turns out Singapore has some pretty spectacular islands too. Grab a bumboat from the Changi Ferry Terminal (SG$3.oo/US$2 per person – boats leave when there are 12 people) for the short ride over to Pulau Ubin. Once there, rent a bike from the small town to the right of the jetty and venture into the island. Pulau Ubin is home to Singapore’s last kampong, or traditional village, as well as the ethereal Chek Jawa Wetlands.
One of the city’s most iconic streets, Orchard Road is the epicentre of shopping in Singapore and is similar to London’s Oxford Street or Hong Kong’s Nathan Road. Flanked on both sides by local and international department stores, tiny boutiques, offices, spas, beauty salons, hotels, entertainment spots, restaurants, and cafes, you could spend a whole day trawling the main thoroughfare. Shopping malls along Orchard are stocked with practically everything under the sun. Plus, there is always some kind of fair or activity taking place in the malls and shopping centres so there are probably more things to do Orchard than anywhere else in Singapore.

In 1983, there was a rough patch in business, like most company’s experience. During this time, Mr. Dadi Balsara created another scent, known as Singapore Bliss, for a company called SIA and was a huge success when launched in 1988. After a long reign of impactful creations, in the year 2000, the now older Mrs. Christina Balsara and wanted to dial down her business to a smaller scale. Finally in 2007, Perfume of Singapore closed down the factories and shut down the business in 2008, and that was the last bit of their iconic presence.
