Dear Bijou Babes,
Since introducing Bijou in 2014, we received a lot of great feedback and a lot of love from all of our wonderful customers. We wanted to give you even more to love.
We've been working tirelessly behind the scenes to make a few amazing changes for Bijou. We know the Bijou makeover may seem like a big change from the original, so we wanted to tell you exactly why we made these upgrades.
Our original resin bowl vessels will always hold a special place in our hearts, but we had some issues controlling our quality and this resulted in limitations on developing new amazing scents and designs for you. We decided to switch to glass vessels because glass production is better for the environment and produces less waste than resin bases. Our new glass vessels are beautifully decorated with a milk glass effect and a 22 karat gold rim that give off a warm, comforting glow when lit.
Our former wax was a soy paraffin blend. We had some issues with uneven burning and smokiness. Our wax is now hand-poured, 100% soy, which is better for you and the environment, burns cleanly and evenly, makes the scents stronger, and greatly increases the burn time. We also improved our fragrances so that our scents are more concentrated for a strong scent throw.
While we are no longer making refills, we made the large candles burn for 70 hours for $29 as opposed to the former large candles, which only burned for 25 hours at $32. PLUS, we now offer $9 travel tins that burn for a full 25 hours!
Finally, we are proud to say that every element of the new Bijou candle is made in the USA, which significantly reduces our carbon footprint.
We spent an entire year developing new fragrances and tweaking existing favorites so there is something for everyone to love. We personally can't pick a favorite and really believe that these amazing scents will speak for themselves.
We made all of these changes and improvements with you in mind. We hope you love them as much as we love making them!
