4 Highlights to catch at the Singapore Night Festival 2017

To mark the 10th year of the Singapore Night Festival, Australian skincare label Aesop has put together an exhibition where visitors encounter 10 large bowls filled with water and essential oils, to mark a tribute and associate the milestone with the scents. Two of the featured essential oils in Nostos: Records of the Self are bergamot, which is said to have a calming effect, and sandalwood, which boosts memory. To heighten the scent, each bowl is illuminated by a series of light bulbs, creating a dim environment that reduces visual stimuli. The heat emitted by the bulbs also warms the essential oils. A maximum of 20 visitors are allowed in at any one time.

Where: Gallery 10, National Museum of Singapore, 93 Stamford Road
When: Today to Sunday and Aug 25 and 26: 10am to midnight; Monday to Thursday, 10am to 10pm
