Travellers can discover beautiful moments with a relaxing cup of white tea in the first Elizabeth Arden White Tea House, a World Exclusive Popup Concept debuting for the first time in Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1 Transit Departure Hall, next to The Shilla Cosmetics & Perfumes Central Store from 3 March to 13 April 2019. In partnership with Changi Airport Group and The Shilla Duty Free, the exclusive tea house celebrates the travel retail prelaunch of 2 new fragrances – White Tea Wild Rose and White Tea Vanilla Orchid.
A carefree afternoon, a good book, the first sip of tea… all simple pleasures, all intimately familiar. With the introduction of the first White Tea fragrance in 2017, Elizabeth Arden embarked on a journey to capture these simple pleasures in a pure and exquisitely uncomplicated fragrance. – Today, Elizabeth Arden is expanding the experiential collection with the launch of White Tea Wild Rose and White Tea Vanilla Orchid – for the women who want to revel in the moment.
As part of Elizabeth Arden’s commitment to continuously present memorable and coveted travel experiences, the White Tea House presents the unique opportunity for travelers to embark on a #WhiteTeaMoments experiential journey. Fragrance and skincare sampling takes on a new stage as they are presented to travelers “degustation style”. Customers get to experience the 3 scents of White Tea, White Tea Wild Rose and White Tea Vanilla Orchid before deciding on their complimentary cup of tea, inspired by each of the 3 fragrances. While enjoying the lightly aromatic flavours from a soothing cup of tea, customers get to discover Elizabeth Arden best selling skincare, plated beautifully in sampling portions. Customers can share their experience with other travelers via the Tea House message board. Remember the beautiful moments by taking a photo in front of a specially designed floral wall, and share with friends and family on social media #WhiteTeaMoments #Changi 1st.

Stephane Bonnet, Elizabeth Arden Vice President of Global Travel Retail explains, “The White Tea House is an excellent way to kick-start the launch of our new White Tea fragrances. The tea house integrates beauty and lifestyle elements beautifully with various memorable touch points during the service journey. We hope the travelers will attach this pleasant memory to the subtle yet enchanting scents of Elizabeth Arden’s White Tea Fragrances.”
The exquisite journey rewards customers with a Changi Airport exclusive magnet and postcard set, designed in collaboration with Grace Ciao, an illustrator globally recognized for her delicate and chic fashion illustrations using real flowers and watercolors. The design depicts a modern woman in a dress created from wild rose, posing elegantly against a backdrop of pink roses and white vanilla orchids, symbolizing the 2 new pre-launch fragrances. Elizabeth Arden thoughtfully provides free mailing service for travelers who will like to post the memorable postcard to their loved ones.
The shopping experience in the White Tea House is further elevated by a fun tea blending activity where customers can customize their own White Tea blend to bring home in a personalized sealed tea bag upon purchase of a White Tea fragrance. This customizable gift is available only at the White Tea House in Changi Airport. “Personalization of gifts, either for yourself or for your loved ones is becoming increasingly important in the competitive and congested retail environment. Customers want to be part of the process of creating something unique for themselves,” shares Yumie Chia, Senior Regional Director of Asia Pacific Travel Retail Division at Elizabeth Arden.
“Changi Airport is honored to host the world’s first Elizabeth Arden White Tea House experiential pop-up concept, and be the first airport to launch the two new beautiful fragrances ahead of the rest of the world.
