Let’s whisk off on a virtual scents journey while our travel plans are halted

From Burberry to Jo Malone, these fragrances bring you on a tangy adventure.
Reading time 4 minutes

While our travel plans for the year may be temporarily suspended, we have these aromatic concoctions that lead our inner wanderlust by the nose.

One whiff and we are instantly whisked off on a virtual tour to our favourite destination abroad. No flight ticket needed!

Further igniting our imagination, local illustrator Kexin Tan (@_wabiko) adds a utopian touch to the olfactory journey, transporting us deeper into an otherworldly realm of escapism.
