This month is all about aromas from the kitchen! Mmmmmmm! I also love the little matches they send – such a nice touch!
I also wanted to mention that they started using new packaging this month, and I’m really happy about it! Previously I have always received a box full of shredded paper, but this time they used some paper netting, and it’s so much less wasteful. Plus it doesn’t get everywhere! I suppose I would not have liked it as much if my candles had arrived broken, but so far, so good!
Southern Apple Pie by 4th St. Candle Co. – Value $12
This is the big candle for April, and it smells just like the real thing! Plus 4th St. Candle Co.’s candles are made with GMO free pure soy wax, no dye, cotton and paper wicks, and pthalate-free fragrances.
Blood Orange + Citrus Mini Jar by Paddywax – Value $10
Blood orange is one of my favorite aromas in the whole world! This candle smells great, but it’s actually a bit subtle when burned. I guess I would always prefer they go stronger with the blood orange!
Wild Ginger Mini Tin by Lights Out – Value $7
Ginger is another scent I absolutely love! This one also seems to have some light but supportive floral notes. I’ve received candles from Lights Out before in Flicker Box, and they are the kind that smell amazing but not too strong when actually burning. I hope this one is at least strong enough to fill my office with ginger scent!
No. 154 Lemon Pound Cake 4 oz. tin by Copper & Kraft – Value $6.75
I am completely and totally blown away by this candle! I expected it to smell like lemon candy, but I can actually, really smell the BUTTER! It smells so delicious! All of Copper & Craft’s candles also use natural soy wax and have lead-free wicks.
This month’s Flicker Box also came with two coupons: 10% off 4th Street Candle Co., and $5 off $25 at Copper & Kraft. Bonus!
Verdict: This was my favorite month of Flicker Box so far! I guess I really like sweet scents! The value adds up to $35.75 which is just slightly higher than the cost of the box, so I’m happy with that. The curation of Flicker Box is always wonderful, in my opinion, and it’s a great way to discover artisanal candles made with all-natural ingredients.
