Filling the air with scents of love


Inspiring theme: The perfume party was held in conjunction with Valentine’s Day and was themed ‘Love is in the Air’.

WEVENTS, a women-only social gathering, organised a perfume party in conjunction with Valentine’s Day celebrations with BisouBonBon, a provider of all-natural French-inspired handmade bath and bodycare products.

The event, aptly themed Love is in the Air, was held in the elegant setting of Betjeman and Barton’s tea room in 1Utama Shopping Centre.

Women attending the party were taught how to concoct their own bespoke perfume with tools and ingredients provided by BisouBonBon.

Apart from learning about the different types of essential oils to create a scent for themselves or for that special someone, the women also learned the art of matching their scent to their attire.

The perfume workshop was conducted by Shelby Kho, BisouBonBon’s founder who is also a medical practitioner and an advocate of natural beauty products.

Kho said, “Scent is something very personal and unique to each person and when people think about Paris, they think about love.

Do it yourself: Guests smelling dozens of essentials oils before selecting the scents they like best and mixing them in a beaker to create their own perfume.

“So in this season of love and in celebrating Valentine’s Day, we hope our French-inspired BisouBonBon’s perfume can help set women to be in the mood for love with a scent of their own.”

She also said that by making their own bespoke perfume, women could express their own individuality.

“It is important that women be themselves. Well, unless you are a unicorn, then be a unicorn!” Kho joked.

The women at the event were feted with Betjeman and Barton’s confections and tea and everyone walked away with their self-made BisouBonBon perfume as well as a perfume-making kit.

The best dressed woman was also rewarded with a hamper of Miss Dior items worth RM786 while AD Time sponsored a Bonia watch worth RM1,288.

WEVents president Tammy Lim said, “Our events’ theme for this whole year will be on love. We feel that working women sometimes need to be reminded to love themselves, amid their busyness in juggling work and family commitments.”

Lim, who is also founder of the Butterfly Project, is the first appointed president for WEVents and will serve for a one-year renewable term.

In her new role, she will drive all WEVents events in 2015.

WEVents founder Jeanisha Wan and her team of volunteers will continue to support WEVents and details on upcoming events can be found on www.wevents.com.my
