About

BON LUX hand-made botanical perfumed candles, room oils, face mists & matches in really nice illustrated packaging

BON LUX was born in 2014, after a creative career in design and a fortuitous visit to small candle factory, Chantel had a dream to make beautiful meaningful things. She experimented and developed a small range of candles and scented things , with a strong design focus for the body and home.

BON LUX products all begin with a concept; combining flowers, colour, and illustrations into 'scent stories'. Perfume blending is a delicate process. It took almost 2 years to finalise the unique and complex layered perfumes in the BON LUX range, as each features a number of different notes.

From a Melbourne studio, oils of bark and petals are blended, mixed with wax and poured in small batches for orders all over the world. Finest quality soy wax is used because it's vegan, non-toxic, contains no palm oil, and is sustainably farmed. Oils are sourced locally, and where possible, from locally grown plants. Cotton wicks, hand-blown re-usable glass votives, and non-bleached card boxes are all used to minimise impact on the environment-handmade and thoughtful in each aspect.

Blending perfumes using essential oils and floral waters for their aromatherapy benefits were the next step. BON LUX have developed a room oil blend and face mists to add to the range of beautiful things, designed to enjoy.


BON LUX feature in YEN & FRANKIE magazines, NYLON, BRIDE, Fashion Journal, BridetoBeMagazine Australia, Grazia Magazine, and MissMoss, iamthelab, elite16, acutabovetheretsy, handmadeloves, ourbestfinds, la-mouette & thoughtandsight blogs & feeds.

BON LUX candles are stocked locally and internationally visit http://www.bonlux.com for your nearest stockist.

CUSTOM ORDERS/COLLABORATIONS
we would love to make a scent for your store or brand!,
please email us with your ideas!

GIFT NOTES
please add your info in the 'notes' section, or send us an email and we will add a gift note with the candle.

WHOLESALE
We stock stores all over the world! contact us via email for wholesale enquiries-we love bookstores, florists, home wares stores and fashion boutiques who value handmade products.

HANDMADE
BON LUX candles are 100% hand made so sometimes show some imperfections!
We use the finest quality 100% soy wax, so sometimes the new candle surface may appear uneven in colour or texture-this can be due to heating up during shipping, some oils may appear on surface, or the wax colour may darken...this is proof of the soy wax and oil quality and will even out with initial long burn, also as candle burns down it is normal for some wax to stick to glass sides.

CANDLE CARE
when you first burn the candle, allow it to burn long enough for wax to pool,
as this allows for the scent to throw beautifully and encourages candle to burn nicely.
trim the candle wick each time you burn-6mm is the best length.
if you burn candle in draughty room it can make the candle burn unevenly.
carbon will often deposit on inside of glass, but its easily wiped clean with a tissue!
time for a new votive candle once it burns down to 1cm or lower, as any lower you risk the glass breaking.
don't leave burning candles unattended, or near kids or animals!
place candle on a heat proof surface, and away from curtains and soft furnishings.
spilled soy wax is easily cleaned up! just wipe with soapy cloth.

REUSE & RECYCLE
BON LUX have taken care to design packaging which can be re-used and recycled. Use the kraft box for another gift, recycle the wrap, and the jar is great for pencils or flowers. once candle is burned down to its lowest, remove wick and rinse votive glass out with warm soapy water or pop in dishwasher to remove wax!
