Between 1819 and 1823, Major-General William Farquhar commissioned unidentified Chinese artists to illustrate local flora and fauna. This project resulted in 477 watercolors of plants, mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and insects found in Malacca and Singapore. Some of these drawings and his contributions inspired the choice of essential oils we used in “Scent of Singapura”.
