Can't really say anything about the hair removal... Yikes! But the Body Massage at Scent Discovery is fantastic! I'm usually not one to judge a massage place after one visit as it really depends on the skill of the masseuse during the time of your visit. After the third visit, I can safely say that all the masseuses I had were all well-trained. I would characterize the massage as comfortable, relaxing yet hard enough to relieve any unwanted tension in the body. Very suitable for both men and women, and those who are wary of painful massages.
The place itself is remarkably clean. The towels provided, especially during my last visit, were warm and felt like they just came out of the dryer. The oil they use is divine. It smells amazing and never seems to dry, which is a bonus in my view.
Price is SGD60 for an Hr; SGD80 for 1.5hrs. A bit pricey, I know..., but well worth it, if your goal is to simply find a solid massage in the Novena area.
