In the last edition of A Lighter Side of History this year, we travel back in time with local perfume maker Johari Kazura, who shares his experiences of growing up in Kampong Gelam, above a perfume shop started by his grandfather in 1933. Learn how his grandfather travelled from South India to Kampong Gelam in the 1930s and started a trade that continued in the family for decades.

You will also experience some of the scents and ingredients involved in the making of perfume, from the old-world incense of frankincense and myrrh to local serai (lemongrass) and gelam (tea-tree) oils. Discover how perfumers create new fragrances using an art form steeped in culture and craft.

Registration required. Please email nhb_nm_lectures@nhb.gov.sg with your name and contact number. Please provide the details of the other participants if you wish to register for more than one person.
