Scent From Candle Subscription Box Review – October 2016
Scent From, is a new candle and home accessory subscription. The theme for the first box is Scent from Marrakesh. (Each month has a different location/theme for the scent.)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Box: Scent From
The Cost: $25.39 a month plus $5.99 shipping
The Products: “Every box will contain one hero candle, one home accessory and a selection of smaller scented treats, and whilst each month’s destination will be revealed, the exact contents will remain a mystery.”
Good to know: Your Scent From Box will be dispatched between the 1st and the 10th of each month
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and the theme:
This month’s box will take you to Morocco’s cultural capital, Marrakesh, the former Imperial city and World Heritage Site of unrivalled beauty. Inspired by snow-capped mountains, turquoise desert skies and a rich oasis of tropical plants, Scent From Marrakesh is guaranteed to delight your senses with its enchanting and exotic Arabian scents.
These tea lights have a burn time of 5-hours, and the scent is a blend of precious woods, spices, musk and vanilla.
And these tea lights go perfectly with the next item:
Copper Pyramid Tea Light Holder – Value $10?
(I couldn’t find this exact piece for sale online, so I’m guessing on the value.)
The bottom piece is removable, and locks in place once you put your tea light in:
Shearer Candles Amber Noir Soy Wax Tin Candle – Value $6.50
This tin candle has a 20-hour burn time, and it’s described as a blend of tuberose, violets, and amber. It’s my favorite scent in the box – and my husband Eric likes it, too!
Scent From Marrakesh Soy Wax Tin Candle – Value $15?
This candle is the hero candle made for this box, so I’m estimating on value. I’m happy to see the candle is made from pure eco soy wax, but unfortunately, this scent isn’t for me. (Burn time, 40 hours.)
Good news for me, though, I think I will like next month’s scent more:
Hallå! Our second subscription candle box is Scent From Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is steeped in sensuous potential and is that marvellous mix of museums and modernity, of cobbled streets and fantastic facades, of pine trees and pastries and evenings by the hearth. The Swedish word ‘mysa’ embodies what we’ve tried to capture this month: that feeling of warmth and cosiness we look forward to sharing with friends and family as the winter nights draw in. Mysa is health and well-being and time spent happily indoors; mysa is the motive and Stockholm the source for this month’s Scent From box.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $39.50. I think that’s good for the $31.38 cost, especially considering this box has free shipping from the UK. I also really like the idea of mixing candles and a home item, so I’m excited about future months from this box, even though every scent this month wasn’t for me.
