VELLA BOX JULY 2016 - INFO

Each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month, as well as the bonus gift.

It’s taken me this long to realize the background of the info sheet is the same pattern as the fabric they wrap the candle in! Cool touch.

VELLA BOX JULY 2016 - ITEMS 1

Go Raw Lemon Pie Sprouted Cookies – value: $1

Every Vellabox has a bonus gift. This month’s was a pouch of these lemon sprouted cookies. They are made via drying and not heat, so more nutrients are preserved. They’re also non-gmo, nut-free, gluten-free, and vegan. I tried these, but I just don’t care for lemon-flavored things (unless it’s cake!).

1502 Candle Co. Red Currant & Rose Travel Tin – 3 oz?, value: $8?

This candle is light and floral (rose petals and jasmine, with red currant). It’s really nice, and I love tin candles.

Pure Plant Home Italian Bergamot and Persian Lime – 7 oz, value: $22

This scent is spectacular! I’ll be burning this for the rest of summer. It smells so fresh and uplifting.

I also love this little note on the label here.

Verdict: My July VellaBox was a hit! The value adds up to $30, which breaks even with the cost of the box. I do think curation/discovery plays into the value for this sub, so keep that in mind. Also, the fact that you’d have to pay shipping to get the candles straight from the manufacturers helps even out the value in some way, too, I think. All in all, I’m happy.

What do you think about VellaBox?

  1. You said Your subscription you received the candles were supposed to Total 12 ounces but you only receive 10 is this normal for this subscription

    • Patricia,
      I couldn’t find an exact weight listed for the tin which is why there’s a question mark next to my weight and value for it, so it’s quite possible that one is actually 4 oz, possibly 5 (but 5 oz is generally an odd weight for candles I think?). It’s probably more like 11 oz total, but I’m not too upset about an ounce or two (I have too many candles to burn to miss an ounce or two difference, haha!). Vellabox also aims to deliver ~75 hours of burn time for this level of subscription and the tin candle says ~35 hours and the larger candle says ~40, so that part is spot on with what they promise.

      Thanks for reading!

      • Hey, the small candle is actually 6oz and the large 7oz for a total of 13oz. I looked on their website. My girlfriend subscribes and she loves the candles. Her place always smells immaculate!

  2. I love candles but do not burn them since I started using the Scentsy warmers years ago. It would be great to find a subscription that has great quality & a long lasting smell in wax melts!

  3. That Pure Plant candle sounds amazing. I adore bergamot. Their website also lists a Valencia orange/grapefruit combo that’s calling my name.

  4. Just something to keep in mind: I tried this sub out earlier this year. It arrived with the wrong info card and the larger candle damaged. I reached out to customer service and never heard back from them.
