When visiting Scentopia, make sure to bring your phone. When you reach the Augmented Reality exhibit, turn on Facebook, hold your phone up to the various exhibits and watch as they come to life on your screen! 

An exciting experience for children and adults alike, the augmented and scented exhibits allow you to see an altered version of reality before your very eyes, transporting you to the hidden fourth dimension via over 250 magical exhibits!

3. Perfume-making workshop

When it comes to making perfume, where does one start? At Scentopia, take a fun and simple perfume personality test that classifies your signature scent. You can then take your pick of aroma oils from over 6,000 different choices and mix them up to create your very own signature scent at Scentopia’s perfume-making workshop

Once you’re happy with your selection, head to the perfume-making bar station. The perfumer will convert it into a custom 100ml bottle for you which you can then take home. 

If you’re just not a fan of wearing perfume, or you’d rather make something to spruce up your home space, you can opt for room fragrances, reed diffusers, bath oils, scented candles, and various other kits.

If you enjoy diving into a world of pleasant aromas, then you’d definitely want to check out Scentopia on your next visit to Singapore!
