Nestled in the glittering blue waters of the South China Sea, I came to live in Singapore from Australia some 9 years ago, and it was love at first sight. Life in the glamorous garden city was exciting and intoxicating - so it's no wonder I was inspired to build an entire brand based on it's beauty!

Our Brand Story

Create the things you wished existed

The idea for TEMPLE Candles came about after an endless search for that perfect Singapore-inspired gift for visiting family and friends. I knew exactly the type of momento I wanted to give that would bring back travel memories once they were home, but it was nowhere to be found. It was from that moment, an idea started to grow...

As a candle-obsessed Interior Designer, I have always loved the final touch a candle or diffuser adds to a room; how their fragrance transforms the atmosphere with luxurious scent. During my earlier years of travel to the perfume capital of the world, Grasse, France, I trained with an Apprentice Perfumer programme, which is where I began to develop my knowledge and understanding of the powerful memory-evoking abilities of scent. The world of fragrance suddenly became an essential link to the past and the present.

Arriving in Singapore some years later, as a natural expansion of my training in Perfumery, I was inspired to create Oriental-botanic fragrances that could be taken home as reminders of romantic travels to the Far East; an olfactory link to another time and place - Singapore.

And so my passion for fragrance & interiors, coupled with my deep love of Asia inspired me to create a range of high end Oriental-botanic inspired home fragrances. Capturing the luxuriance of our natural tropical surrounds combined with Singapore's rich symbolic heritage, TEMPLE's signature products are unique to our brand and the home fragrance industry.
