Just like the highly-anticipated festive display at the world-famous Rockefeller Center in New York. you know it’s officially Christmas when Raffles City Singapore debuts their always-stunning and enchanting Christmas Tree over at the External Quartzite area, which kicks off the festive season in elaborate style.
This year’s display is done in collaboration with Jo Malone London, for a one-of-the-kind Raffles City Singapore x Jo Malone London Christmas tree that towers at 15 metres, and is beautifully accompanied with a carousel of gingerbread horses and sleighs. Oversized candies, striped candy canes and black Jo Malone London gift boxes further bring to mind the fragrance brand’s theme of a gingerbread wonderland. Hands down, best whimsical display we’ve seen in town!
And it gets better — the tree is even more stunning at night, and will fill you up with child-like wonder when you see it lit up with twinkling lights against the backdrop of the mall; it’s a pretty surreal sight to witness this lovely blend of fantasy and delight in the middle of our urban environment. The lighting-up of the Christmas Tree plays on this as well, with an a cappella choir that romanced the audience with Christmas carols, and modern dancers who brought to life the charming Christmas tale.
Here’s a video that recaps the night’s events:
The Jo Malone London Holiday Collection
In the spirit of gifting, we’re equally charmed by the exclusive gift ideas brought about by the collaboration. With Raffles City’s revamped beauty wing and a whole lot of flagship stores at the mall, shoppers might already see it as a one-stop shop for hunting down the perfect presents for their loved ones. There are, additionally, several limited-edition Jo Malone London collections we can look forward to.
We’ll start with the iconic and timeless Wild Bluebell, now adorned with a festive striped bow, that has pre-launched exclusively at the Raffles City store, and available till 30 November 2023. Then, there’s this year’s seasonal scent, the Ginger Biscuit, which, when spritzed on, makes one smell exactly like a domestic goddess. The scent is irresistibly charming yet sensual, of warm notes spiced with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and caramel, and then housed in a biscuit-coloured glass topped off with a striped bow.
For a special treat, there’s also the House Of Jo Malone London Collection, which features five favourites, including the Gingerbread Land Home Candle Trio of candy cane striped candles in popular fragrances.
Raffles City is currently offering a whole slew of festive shopping promotions between 15 November till 31 December 2023, which includes a $1,000 eCapitaVoucher and 6 months Raffles Prestige Membership if you’re among the top 10 spenders at the mall.
