About 'To Be Calm'


To Be Calm is the brainchild of Cherylynne Clews, who developed a love of fragrance in the most simplistic of ways at a very young age, playing in the garden and noticing as she brushed against flowers the release of perfume was simply beautiful. Enjoying hot summer days with the eucalypt fragrance heavy in the air, taking time to pick leaves and flowers and ‘mash’ them up, creating various concoctions . Then like all of us life can sometimes get in the way of passion, she moved into the corporate world and had a very successful corporate career with American Express, reporting into New York, bringing her to Singapore, where she has lived for the last 17 years.  Fragrance, however, was never far away, travelling with candles and essential oil blends, her colleagues looked forward to her attendance at meetings as she regularly would bring fragrance into meeting rooms to help create an optimal state of mind. 

Noticing and experiencing the benefits her friends and colleagues enjoyed with fragrance and wishing to embrace her passion further she launched To Be Calm, always with the premise that fragrance can create an optimal state of mind and has the added benefit of creating fragrance memories or importantly transporting you to a beautiful memory, that a particular fragrance has triggered.

In establishing our candle making workshops there was considerable thought given to the range of fragrances available in which to experiment with. Fragrance is very personal and we love hearing people share their fragrance memories or explaining the scent of a certain place that they would like to recreate or be completely disarmed and experiment holistically. 

To Be Calm’s products are sensory, luxurious, beautifully presented and, of course, fragrant. We hope you enjoy your fragrance journey.

"Hi Cherylynne, Those are wonderful pictures! Our guests always have a great time in your workshops! Looking forward to more collaborations with you! ."


Teo Jen
"Love this 100% natural mosquito insect repellent as the smell is very nice (citronella, Lavender, Lemongrass and Peppermint). It’s easy to use by rolling over arms and legs on myself and my 3 year old. Small and compact to bring around too. Most importantly, it’s effective to keep the mosquitoes and bugs away!."

John David
"Had my first candle making workshop and it was sooo fun! I learned the fundamentals of scents and was able to explore different fragrances. Shout-out to Rona and Joey! They made the session more enjoyable. Rona was very engaging and she’s really a pro when it comes to her craft. Both of them were really helpful and patient. I will definitely recommend this candle making session. Kudos to To Be Calm team! ‘Till next time!."
