aroma-getaway-aug-theme

This month’s destination is The Wild West! That actually sounds like there would be a pretty wide variety of aromas! This month they sent me several little cards to give to friends with the coupon code for 25% off.

aroma-getaway-aug-info

This is the inside of the little information leaflet that was included, detailing the package contents.

aroma-getaway-aug-candle

Carson City Wandering Cowboy Scented Palm Wax Candle (4 oz) – Listed value $5.50

I couldn’t find this exact scent for sale in their shop, so I’m using the listed value. Wow, who knew wandering cowboys smelled so good? I would have thought the opposite! This candle smells great, maybe a little like cinnamon, and it’s made from palm wax. Nice!

aroma-getaway-aug-votives

Tombstone Sarsaparilla Sharpshooter Set of 4 Tea Lights – Value $2.50

Sarsaparilla! I smelled the root beer right away, and it smells so delicious! It made me want to drink one, and I don’t think I’ve had a root beer in years!

aroma-getaway-aug-keychain

Custom Keychain – Listed value $10

Since this is a custom item, I’m using the listed value from the info leaflet. This is very cute and fits the theme well.

San Antonio Saddlery Car Freshener – Listed value $2.95

Yep, it smells like leather! This wasn’t listed for sale online, either, so again, this is the listed value.

aroma-getaway-aug-tarts

Cheyenne Clary Sage Wax Tarts – Listed value $6.95

I’m just having terrible luck finding these items for sale online! This is the listed value for these tarts. They don’t actually smell very much like sage to me, personally, but they do smell great. I’m having trouble putting my finger on exactly what they smell like. They have a bit of citrus scent to them, I would say.

aroma-getaway-aug-snacks

Cactus Candy – Value $0.99

My husband loves Cactus Candy, so he was happy to devour these instantly. They are a sweet and slightly tart hard candy.

Native American Tea Company Teas – Value about $1.00

These teas are all wonderful! The Victory Tea is my favorite, of course, as it is a hibiscus tea, which I love. The Chief’s Delight has juniper in it and was very soothing. The Indian Love Tea has ginseng in it, which I’ve heard is good for the libido, so I guess that would make sense! What a nice treat!

aroma-getaway-aug-guns

Dueling Rubber Band Six Shooters – Value $4.98

This obviously fits the theme pretty well, and I think it could be fun for some people, but I had to get these out of my house kind of quickly. They look like the kind of thing my kids would hurt each other or the pets with instantly.

aroma-getaway-aug-map

4 Corners Map by National Geographic – Value $11.95

I don’t think I will be traveling to the Four Corners area any time soon, but this is a kind of cool map anyway. It’s nice and big and has lots of places of interest marked. Plus it’s waterproof and tear-resistant. I am a bit of a sucker for maps, to be honest. I like to look at them and imagine what the places on them are like. Is that strange?

Verdict: This was another good package from Aroma Getaway. I got a little frustrated trying to look up values for everything online, but I think the values listed are reasonable, and I will use pretty much everything they sent this month (except the guns). The values add up to about $50, which is good for a $33 box. Plus of course, there were lots of yummy scents inside!

  1. Thanks so much for the review! We weren’t sure what you’d think as the items in this box are more on the “non-traditional” side, but you get it. It’s all about the theme. I can attest the rubber band gun was a little wacky but for those who work in an office setting it is a ton of fun with co-workers or to vent frustration via a picture of a face on the wall and doing some “target practice”. However it isn’t for everyone and there are some clear instructions on the packaging indicating ideal age range and so on. The next one coming to you is the Maryland box theme – subscription deadline for that ended yesterday, the 15th so they can be shipped the first week of September. We’re announcing the October box offering via our website and social media today! Exciting!

  2. Common sage and clary sage are different plants, so that’s probably why the candles don’t smell like the sage you’re used to. I don’t think I’ve ever smelled a clary sage plant, but I’ve read about them in herb books.
