With enviable colonial architecture and tropical greenery, Tanglin is sophisticated Singapore home to the lauded Botanic Gardens.

The scent maker of Tanglin is our Founder, Sam. The inspiration for Tanglin comes from the relationships that blossomed in the beautiful Botanic Gardens. From morning walks with friends, to qi gong in the healing garden to full moon picnics filled with storytelling and sharing, many of my favourite moments with women, some who I only just met, happened in this neighbourhood.

With notes of energising citrus and lemongrass grounded by ancient pine, this candle will transport you to the ritual of jungle bathing, qi gong at the lake or sunset picnics with your favourite people.
