This month’s candle selection is called “Night Sky.”
Candelaria Stardust Candle with Wood Coaster Lid – 9 oz, value: $28
This candle smells so good! Here’s how their website describes it: “Pink cotton candy, sweet lemon drops, raspberry, fig leaves, with warm caramel and hints of Sicilian orange, Lily of the Valley, & powdery vanilla musk.” I love it. The coaster is a luxe nice touch, too. As far as being a lid, well, it’s not functional – it just sits on top and doesn’t attach or fit on/in in any way. That’s not a big deal with me, though.
Hearth & Hammer Moonlit Moore Candle – 8 oz, value: $18
This candle combines violet, orris, and musk flower. It’s sweet but also has a balanced complexity due to the musk. The fragrance is inspired by this quote from Wuthering Heights:
“There was no moon, and everything beneath lay in misty darkness: not a light gleamed from any house, far or near all had been extinguished long ago.”
Wood & Wax Co. Moon Flower Wood Wick Jar Candle – 9 oz, value: $16.50
This candle’s fragrance is jasmine flowers and rose petals – it’s very warm and romantic! I like it. Also, this floral label is gorgeous! I love having this on display on my coffee table or mantle.
Also included was a couple coupons and they always throw in a book of matches, which I greatly appreciate! I like to keep them next to wherever my candles are to make it quick and easy to light.
Verdict: I really liked this month’s Flicker Box. I thought the theme was well curated and original. The value adds up to $62.50 which is great. I think this is a great way to discover artisanal candles made with all-natural ingredients!
