The Founder

PHI Aroma, founded by Dr Sylvia.

Raised and nurtured in malaya straits Chinese family, she learned to appreciate & treasure the scents through local grown spices and herbs. She was then trained and certified internationally as a professional aromatherapist.

Married to a Dusun husband and raising a pair of Sabahan children, she gets inspired by the richness of scents in Sabah.

She truly believed that an enriching fragrance experience nurtures the body and soul.

She knew that it was her calling as a scent collector & founded Phi Aroma as the pioneering Scent Library for Borneo.

Phi Aroma is also the first Artisanal perfumery in Sabah.


Other than making Artisanal Perfumes. We also organise private perfumery classes for people who are interested in exploring perfumery. Our tutors are trained & certified by MBHT Perfumer Academy, UK.
