- LIMITED EDITION -
A unique original scent composition featuring exotic notes related to the Baba-Nyonya (Peranakan Chinese) heritage and culture in Malaysia. One of the most well-known things that relates to the Baba-Nyonya culture must be the "Nyonya kuih", which means Nyonya dessert snack. We have distilled the essence of "Nyonya kuih" into Eau De Nyonya. Besides the delicacies, Eau De Nyonya has also captured the essence of a Baba-Nyonya mansion -- elegant, aged, exotic. This is the fragrance that would bring your soul to the land of Baba-Nyonya while extending a very warm welcome to you with the warmest smile and greetings -- "Selamat Datang!" (“Selamat Datang”: “Welcome” in Malay language.)
The opening of this fragrance features the scents of Tapai Pulut (a Peranakan sweet dessert made of fermented glutinous rice) and a rich concoction featuring Pandan (screwpine) leaf mixed with coconut milk and Gula Melaka (Malaccan coconut sugar). Apart from the sweet combo that “Nyonya kuih” is famous for, the scent also shines with a floral heart including jasmine sambac and violet, enlightened with rare natural Orris butter. The juxtaposition between the floral bouquet and Nyonya desserts creates an interesting effect of East-meets-West gourmand-like scent that smells like no other. In a later stage, a touch of cinnamon and chocolate rounds off the bouquet. Sandalwood and benzoin resin follows. As the fragrance continues to unfold itself, a combination of suede, ambergris and musk, with a touch of smoke, makes a smooth and soothing ending.
