This fragrance relieves the stress of a busy day by changing the atmosphere in a room to that of a relaxing day spent among the sight, sound, and smell of Kampong Glam and Arab Street.
Before 1889, the Chinese called this "Jiau a Koi - The Javanese street". Tamil Indians called it "Pukadai Sadkku - flower shop street." Eventually, It later came to be known as Arab Street because of Arab Kampong. Each of the three cultures have beautiful Aromatic history, and so does this street.
