The Making of Scents of Belonging
Scents of Belonging was conceptualised in collaboration with local artisan perfumery Scent by SIX, founded by NTU alumnus Jason Lee (TIP/2010), standing on the left, based on conversations with NTU alumni, students, faculty and staff about what NTU means to them.
Unveiled on 23 March 2023, the scent gift aims to evoke a stronger sense of affinity among NTU alumni, donors and supporters with the University. It inspires a deeper conversation about their shared experiences and memories of NTU, and what it means to belong.
Scents of Belonging features bergamot, lemon, and seamarine that form the fresh citrus top notes. These are creatively blended with soothing, floral scents of rose and freesia. The base notes of wood and musk are reminiscent of NTU’s modern infrastructure juxtaposed with heritage buildings.
