If you are as big a fan of the Australian beauty brand, Aesop, as me, their latest fragrance is bound to hit all the right notes with you. While Tacit is the second addition to the much loved brand, it is certainly second to none, following in the footsteps of Aesop’s first fragrance, Marrakech Intense.

Crafted in collaboration with perfumer Celine Barel*, this perfume is a work of art.

Wonderfully androgynous in its scent, Tacit incorporates the clean, powerfully uplifting freshness of the classic cologne, while carving out a fine balance with its likeness to the contemporary, quiet elegance of a feminine perfume. Perfectly wearable for any momentous occasion, the modern scent is also great for day-to-day wear.

Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean coast’s rich culture, topography and perfumed vegetation, this perhaps best explains why Tacit is a refreshing green scent, and completely out of the ordinary. Like the rest of Aesop’s range, Tacit is an embodiment of all that is botanical, calming, natural, and earthy. There isn’t a tinge of artificiality, which is what I love about Aesop.

Crisp and citrusy, the aromatic fragrance also takes inspiration from the palatable and cleansing aroma of the yuzu fruit, a far cry from the ubiquitous scent of lemons.

True to its name, Tacit’s elusiveness is elicited upon the realisation that while Tacit is a citrus-based scent, it leans a little towards the warmth and spice, with its subtle notes of clove.

The smell evokes fond memories of warm summer nights, making Tacit the best scent to last you through the fall and winter. And if the transition between long summer nights and cool breezy beginnings of autumn had a signature scent to mark the curiousness in the changing weather, that scent would be Tacit.

Tacit Eau de Parfum (50ml, S$135.00)  can be purchased online at www.aesop.com or at Aesop stores.

Shuang Scrubs are body scrubs proudly made in Singapore, and as a Singaporean, I’m a strong advocate of supporting our local businesses. And in case you were wondering what “shuang” means, the Mandarin word means cool. You can use it to describe the weather, or simply a very exciting new body scrub you just tried out.

Read on to find out more about Shuang Scrubs, and at the end of this post, I have included a very special discount code just for you! 

Shuang Scrubs

Shuang Scrubs are free from parabens and chemicals and artificial fragrances. And best of all, they are made from completely natural and organic ingredients! There are three different types of Shuang Scrubs you can choose from, and each targets different skin concerns. So now that we know what exactly Shuang Scrubs is all about, how can I add a little Shuang Scrub into my daily shower routine?

As I mentioned earlier, there are three types of Shuang Scrubs which address unique skin issues. So let me tell you more about what each scrub does!

Shuang Scrubs


The very first original Shuang Scrub. While its name is adorably colloquial, did you know, roasted coffee grains are soo good for exfoliating our skin? This scrub encourages skin regeneration and the fading away of resistant stretch marks, and the aromatic coffee scrub will be sure to wake any sleepy head up in the morning.

Containing extra virgin coconut oil, this scrub hydrates, nourishes, and moisturises our skin, while reducing scarring and redness. Brown sugar acts to lock in our skin’s moisture, which is important in encouraging skin elasticity, which will help prevent new tiger stripes from appearing. Kopi-O takes care of the problem-prone skin and gently removes dry skin.


For radiant, healthy skin, look to Rosie, a scrub rich in anti-oxidants, vitamin C and essential fatty acids. Like its namesake, the scrub is packed with plenty of rose hip oil and rose hip seed powder. Traditionally, these ingredients are used to treat scarring and healing unhappy skin, by repairing scars, reducing stretch marks and encouraging skin regeneration.


The Japanese word refers to “morning light”. Beyond being an exfoliant, Asahi moisturises and brightens the skin with orange peel to reduce dullness and the appearance of stretch marks. To achieve glowing, fairer, youthful-looking skin and reduce the onset of premature wrinkles and aging, Asahi might be your best bet! Rice powder is another powerful ingredient in this Asahi scrub, and has been used for ages by Asian cultures for its naturally lightening and skin treatment properties. It is good for acne prone skin, too. Like Rosie and Kopi-O, Asahi contains brown sugar, virgin coconut oil and sea salt to scrub away dryness and encourage proper hydration.

How do I use a Shuang Scrub?

It’s very simple! Make sure your skin is sufficiently damp in the shower, pour a little Shuang Scrub into your hands and add a little water, and then scrub! Leave it on your skin for a few minutes, and then wash off. Remember to be gentle, especially around the eye area which is sensitive. After showering, you can use a moisturiser because your skin is at its softest and at its prime to absorb and lock-in moisture.

Shuang Scrubs is a brilliant body scrub that can be purchased by anyone around the world, and offers free shipping to many countries! To say hello to healthy skin, drop by www.shuangscrubs.com to pick up your very own body scrub!
