This is a photoshoot I did last month and I am wearing the traditional Baju kebaya which belonged to my mother. It is an honour to be the muse for my talented friend and fragrance designer extraordinaire. Our motto is Penang to the world 🌺🌹

Peranakan Chinese and Baba-Nyonya are the descendants of Chinese immigrants who came to the Malay archipelago and British Malaya (now Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore) between the 15th and 17th centuries.[4]

Members of this community in Malaysia address themselves as “Baba Nyonya”. Nyonya is the term for the women and Baba for the men. It applies especially to the Han populations of the British Straits Settlements of Malaya and the Dutch-controlled island of Java and other locations, who have adopted Nusantara customs — partially or in full — to be somewhat assimilated into the local communities. Many were the elites of Singapore, more loyal to the British than to China. Most have lived for generations along the straits of Malacca. They were usually traders, the middleman of the British and the Chinese, or the Chinese and Malays, or vice versa because they were mostly English educated. Because of this, they almost always had the ability to speak two or more languages.

While the term Peranakan is most commonly used to refer to those of Chinese descent also known as Straits Chinese (named after the Straits Settlements; 土生華人 in Chinese; Tionghoa-Selat or Tionghoa Peranakan in Indonesian; Phuket Baba among Thais in Phuket, Thailand[3]), there are also other, comparatively smaller Peranakan communities, such as Indian Hindu Peranakans (Chitty), Arab/Indian Muslim Peranakans (Jawi Pekan) (Jawi being the Javanised Arabic script, Pekan a colloquial contraction of Peranakan) and Eurasian Peranakans (Kristang[5]) (Kristang = Christians of Portuguese and Asian ancestry).[5][6] The group has parallels to the Cambodian Hokkien, who are descendants of Hoklo Chinese, and the Pashu of Myanmar, a Burmese word for the Peranakan or Straits Chinese who have settled in Myanmar.[7] They maintained their culture partially despite their native language gradually disappearing a few generations after settlement. ~ WIKIPEDIA

George town by josh lee fragrance

This fragrance is by Josh Lee, a talented perfume master.  I love it because it smells fresh, nostalgic of being by the seaside and the fragrance has no animal products and was not tested on animals. Josh and I are both from the island of Penang and we are proud of our unique heritage. Our work is a celebration of where we come from and who we are.

Happy Diwali, May the Light be with you x

against animal testing and no animal ingredients are used in the fragrance products.

Old habits die hard, back to my sketches of perfume bottles. They are just so lovely to draw. I’ve just raided my bathroom and realised I have way to many perfume bottles.

They must be growing in numbers somehow. I seriously didn’t realise how they got there. It must be my pet goblin. He likes to steal socks, and only one of each sock pair, and in return he gives me perfume bottles? Anyone else have a goblin problem in their home?

(…and I think he stole 2 pair of swimming goggles cos I couldnt find them this afternoon when I went for a swim.)

Today’s perfume bottles are Jimmy Choo Flash and Armani Code. To be honest, if I didn’t do these sketches, I wouldn’t have known all these perfumes existed. I really like the Flash bottle with it’s old school feel. Hmm wonder what they smell like?

Continuing with the series of perfume bottles, today’s perfume bottles I sketched are Stella McCartney’s Lily and Viktor Rolf’s Flowerbomb. I have a few more to draw to finish this series and then I’m thinking of compiling them together like a perfume catalog.
