Vanilla-scented shawls by the Singapore Shawl (as published in The Business Times, 17 December 2011)

Local shawl designer Shelley Siu works with retrenched, retired and divorced women to produce high-quality Orchid shawls often gifted to visiting foreign dignitaries. Her latest collection comes with scented micro-capsules embedded within its fibres, which will slowly release a seductive vanilla fragrance that lasts for between 10 to 15 washes. Limited edition coffee-scented version made from coffee fibres is also available for $68 each.
