Flicker Box includes an info card every month, sharing information about the makers and the candles. They do a great job introducing you to the brands included, and these cards definitely make it easier to re-order when you find a candle you really like.
This little floating candle made this month’s packaging really special! It’s so pretty, and I can’t wait to try floating it! It’s almost completely unscented, just FYI. I like both scented and unscented (as long as the scent agrees with me).
This is my favorite candle in the box! It smells amazing! My husband thought it smelled a bit like grapefruit, but I think it smells almost exactly like gourmet jelly beans. Mmmm! I was also excited to learn about this brand because they are local to me, very local! Unfortunately, they are only wholesale, and I cannot find this candle for sale anywhere online, so I had to guess at the value. They do have a page on their website that lists retailers that carry their candles in stores, though, so I may have to pop into one of the nearby gift shops and check out the rest of their scents!
I LOVE that this candle actually smells like what it’s supposed to smell like! I was afraid it would just smell super fruity, but this actually has a bit of that meaty smell that real guava has. The Tiny Collection’s candles are all-natural, AND they make a donation to the ASPCA with every purchase!
I have received candles from this company before from Flicker Box, and they very consistently produce quality soybean oil candles with no animal or petroleum by-products. This one smells like cinnamon bubble gum!
Flicker Box always sends a book of matches, and this month they also included a 10% coupon for the Tiny Collection Candles! Bonus!
Verdict: If you are interested in a candle subscription box, I highly recommend Flicker Box. They impress me every time! February was all about love and passion, but there was nothing in the box that was too rosy or sickly sweet smelling. They also are really committed to helping these artisans and small businesses, and I appreciate their standards regarding the environment as well. This month’s collection had a value of about $44 if I guessed the value of the Love Letter candle correctly, so I am happy with the value as well.
