markets 4

We are always excited for Markets. Even more since it's Markets in Christmas! We can already hear the bells jing-a-ling-a-lingin'  :D  Sometimes it can get overwhelming churning out *bisou* bonbon goodies while juggling the day job. Most of the time we either take leave just the day before to prepare or work through the night into the morning of the market. It's tiring but it's worth it.



We worked for 1 week in a row to come up with a basket of Little Joys. They look marvelous even if we have to say so ourselves! 

Here we are! We even have a Christmas tree!

Update: we have, in the meantime, discontinued our whipped foot cream due to lack of proper tools. Stay tuned for any other updates.

Merci to all who dropped by to love, laugh, linger at BonBonniere. We definitely enjoyed your company.

vintage christmas market @ big market

Soon it will be Christmas time and we've been awfully busy setting up our lil' BonBonniere booths here and there. Did you manage to catch us at the Vintage Christmas Market by Big Market? It was tucked in the Big Ideas office in a small nook over in Cheras. Big Ideas had a wonderful industrial chic space with cement flooring and whitewashed walls. We had a smaller table than usual but we made do. We didn't have alot to sell either due to the time constraints between bazaars. 


That's all we have left!

That's us staring into space (during quiet moments). Later we made friends with our neighbour: Petit Paper. She's so lovely! And we spent the rest of the day ogling at her masking tapes  ;)


Check out our card holder.

It was an intimate setting but this gave us opportunity to communicate and converse with  fellow vendors.

Love thy neighbours. We ended up buying alot from each other! Hilarious :)

button our buttons

There's been so many new additions to the *bisou* bonbon & *bisou* rose family that we can't help but be overwhelmed! Things are moving slowly but surely up the hill and it joys us so so much to know that we've come so far after a year. 

Merci beaucoup our babydolls. You made us who we are... an all-natural handmade bath and body care company.

We got some custom badges made for ourselves to wear at markets / bazaars and decided to make some baby ones too! In the spirit of *bisou* bonbon's 1st year anniversary we will be giving out baby bonbon badges to purchases over RM120 and also repeat sales customers.


This badge allows you to an addition of 5% discount on subsequent purchases along with other potential benefits! C'est super, non??

Our first badge out to Mademoiselle Charlotte  :)

candle in the wind

We've been so excited lately with a new project up our sleeves: making candles!!



We could not locate a local supplier for soy wax and had to get it shipped in from UK instead. Soy wax is so.. smooth, brittle and creamy. The flakes are so gentle and they melt (on heat) in seconds! We made a blend to encourage longer burning time and firmer consistency of wax.


Anchored the wicks to the bases with some multi-purpose glue. We then 'kepit' the other ends between disposable chopsticks to hold them upright.

Oops!!

Voila! We're so proud of them :) All we need are some labels...

Our candles scented in hints of Pine + Lavender will be available in our Pink Parisien christmas care Package No.2  :)  along with our First-Aid Salve and a pair of Mozzie-A-GoGo in a super cool pail!



(Update, 05.03.14: Unfortunately we are in pause mode with regards to our soy wax candle production due to limitation in obtaining raw material)

now you see them (little joys).. now you don't

We got an urgent email from a maid-of-honour for a batch of custom Petites Joies. Unfortunately we were unable to fulfill her request as custom orders (especially those dealing with colour) require a 2 month pre-order period. We had just finished a batch of Little Joys and suggested she take a look to see if it any would suit her fancy. She ended up taking the entire LOT! We were beyond words!


1. Alair 2. Cosette 3. Marguerite 4. Martine 5. Pascaline

6. Ophelia 7. Avril 8. Mirabelle 9. Ivonne 10. Claudette

It was all about delivery that day. Little Joys in the morning and other packages in the afternoon.


As everything was so spontaneous and the fact that the wedding was just a day away, we had to use whatever we had at the time which was a basket... packed our lovelies in and wrapped it in tulle! Thank goodness we're such hoarders and had bits-n-bobs at hand  :D

We jumped into the car, turbo-ed to Klang and made delivery at 01:45! The bride is truly fortunate to have such a sweet maid-of-honour like that.

Su (msg): "Thank you so so much! So grateful that you came down here just to pass it to me. Will relay the stories of this mighty top notch service! I'm sure the bride would be so delighted to hear of this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love the birds too! Thank you :) *big hugs*"

We have always felt it's our business to make people happy. We slept so well that weekday night.. or shall we say morning  :)

an octoberfest picnic bazaar

It was a spur of the moment but we decided to jump in the Threadszoo bandwagon and  be part of the picnic bazaar!




Ecoba  proved to be the perfect venue what with the luscious trees and pebble  grounds. Not to mention wooden picnic tables along with brick + mortar walkway. 


It's Antoine's first time out of the bowl and he's bewildered!


Coton says he makes our Mozzie-A-GoGo look good just by standing beside them!


A pot of First-Aid-Salves. We're liking this gardener look for BonBonniere  :)


Super glad to have met y'all and thank you so much for the generous support! It was so cool minding BonBonniere as we chomped on the neighbour's cupcake watching bands play along with German girls do The Chicken Dance in cutey dirndls. You don't get that every day  :D

tea foot two

If you noticed, our Rose Body Scrub now comes looking like a rose garden! Wee..!! Inspired by Marie Antoinette's garden in Versailles, we've sprinkled green tea all over the surface with a lovely bud of dried rose peaking out in the middle. Tres cute, non?

In the spirit of Eid, we gave out 'tea-foot-two'-s for those who purchased above RM10 at the Chic Pop Street Market 9... did you have a fun time sharing the 'tea'? Do share pics / stories!

Here's wishing everyone a belated pink and splendid Raya :)
