Bonjour Wax Co. is run by a sweet and creative lady named Mandi who currently operates out of Jacksonville, Florida. Mandi started her business so she could spend more time at home with her daughter. Having quit full time teaching myself to do such a thing at one time in my life, I can relate.
Mandi enjoys creating geek related samplers and themes, some including: Harry Potter, Stranger Things and Doctor Who. She uses palm wax which is relatively unique in the wax world. There has been some controversy over the use of palm wax due to deforestation and loss of orangutan habitat, but when asked, Mandi assured me her palm wax comes from sustainable sources. Her fragrances are phthalate free and even uses essential oils (which are costly!). She runs all aspects of the business herself while her baby girls naps or at night.
Single 2 ounce scent shots are $2.25 each. This one is in Massages! Treat Yo' Self! It smells fresh and clean with an aquatic lean. Almost like a milder, yet soapier version of Cactus & Sea Salt. I cut this in half and melted in the guest bathroom and it gave off a medium-strong scent.
Eggo Waffle shapes in the name Eleven. Does it get better than this?!
Eleven has notes of Pumpkin and Pecan Waffles and a dash of coffee and syrup. I could be way off, as I don't see this scent description anywhere, but that is what I get. It smells like the coziest morning. All three gave off a medium-strong scent in the kitchen.
Idris & Petrichor caught my heart before I even opened it. Idris hit me in the geeky feels twice. Once for Doctor Who and a second time for The Mortal Instruments series. Then petrichor, as it is the scientific name for the scent of rain. And does it really get more geekier than that for a fraghead?
With notes of rain, juniper and fresh air, it is the perfect cleaning day scent. Spa-like and relaxing. An open the windows kind of feeling.
And its lovely lilac shade coordinates with the washi on the bag. Details like that make my heart pitter patter.
A couple of cute Christmas scents are up next!
Santa! I Know Him! bursts with vanilla sugar cookies, caramel and creamy decadence. An incredible sugar cookie scent. It threw strong in my bedroom.
Gingerbread Latte features gingerbread, spices and steamed milk. No coffee here and I am cool with that. I love the extra kick of nutmeg in this gingerbread cupcake type of scent. She offers clamshells in this scent too for $5.75.
This is the Christmas at Hogwarts Sampler and I danced a waltz like Neville Longbottom when I spied it. This was listed as $12.00 and included 6 scent shots.
Two adorable Chocolate Frogs. Watch out! They only have one good jump in them. This smells like milk chocolate magic fudge, no not Cornelius Fudge, but that Magic Fudge that you make with Marshmallow Fluff. Normally I am not into chocolate scents in wax, but I will give this one a go.
Every Flavor Beans smells like an Easter basket overflowing with Starburst, jelly beans, Skittles, and all the fruity tart chewy candies you can dream up.
One simply cannot have a Harry Potter sampler without Butterbeer. I have experienced a few different variations of Butterbeer in wax form, but this one is the most sharp and boozy. For some reason I almost think there is a shot of Fire Whisky in this Butterbeer, a la boilermaker.
This one almost made me tear up. No really. Look at that sweet statue. This scent is Godric's Hollow and evokes a snowy day. Really it almost has a Christmas aroma to it. Cinnamon and spice, soft fruit and the comforts of a home denied the poor Potter boy.
Polyjuice Potion has a fun description: leeches, knotgrass, strawberries, raspberries and soft florals. It smells like a bath bomb or bubble bar I might buy at Lush. Which means I like it.
And the finale, The Yule Ball. Boughs of spruce, balsam and firs grace the chilly Great Hall and add festivity and places for Doxies and Cornish Pixies to roost. Love.
She included two samples as well!
This lovely snowflake smells like rich vanilla. Maybe a vanilla butter fudge type of scent. Yummy.
This peach little heart has beautiful scroll work on the other side but I just love the frosted crystallization of palm wax when it dries. Not sure what all is in this but I pick up peaches. Like a peach Bellini drink. I enjoy it. Nice and sweet with a little tartness.
With samplers that feature Festivus, Stars Hollow, Christmas Vacation, and Doctor Who, I can see myself ordering from Mandi at Bonjour Wax Co. in the future. And often. There is a flat rate shipping of $6.95 per order. Have you melted palm wax? Do you enjoy some pop culture in your wax?
