Scent from Stockholm Candle in Oak & Bergamot – Value $15?

Scent-from-stockholm-december-2016-0006

This candle is 100% soy way and has a 40 hour burn time. This scent is described as “emanating citrus, mixed with wood-smoke fragrance.”

Citrus and wood-smoke are always good in my book, and I like this scent combination!

Shearer Candle Tin in Cranberry & Ginger – Value $7

This tin candle has a 20 hour burn time. Unfortunately, this scent is just too overpowering for me.

Golden Woodlands Scent Melt – Value $2

This is one of my favorite scents in the box! Very woodsy/wintery! Now I just need a wax warmer that fits my decor. (If you have any recommendations for minimalist ones, let me know!)

Kikkerland Copper String Lights – Value $10

These are battery operated and perfect for holiday decorating. (This box arrived well before Christmas – I’m just super behind in getting the review out!)

And I love the warm glow of these lights, too!

Wish Upon A Star Glass Sign – Value $10?

This sign measures about 5 by 7 inches. It’s a cute giftable item, and ready to hang, too!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $44. 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 or two. I would have liked this box more if the cranberry tin candle scent was for me, but other than that I think it’s a good box.

  1. The price totally of every month in this review. And this is the Novembe4 box not December. December box was New York. The price for the box is 19.95 plus 5.99 shipping so the total cost for this box is around 26 USD and it comes late. Like Nov you will get in Dec and so on.

  2. I haven’t recieved my Jan box yet and its a subscription that is a gift to me but they will not let me know when its on its way which is just silly. I just don’t understand how I order other boxes from the UK it doesn’t take this long. If there wasnt 5 more months to this I would maybe drop it because of the never knowing where and when is driving me nuts specially since its Feb 4th.

  3. I don’t really trust this subscription. I try to order with a coupon code on January 5 and it wouldn’t dispatch and I know that I have money on the card it’s a prepaid card, and when I try to send them emails about it (5 emails total) they would never reply to me. Bad business if you ask me!

  4. Hey Liz you say in your summary that it’s free shipping from the U.K. But then u list that shipping is 5.99. I’m a bit confused on that! Just wondering thanks! Love MSA! Yeah!🎉🤘🏻❤️️

  5. I bought one box with the coupon code on Jan 5, and it didn’t get dispatched until the 24th. I cancelled… Looking forward to whenever it finally arrives, but not worth the hassle to keep the sub

    • Awhhh that’s gotta be frustrating! Definitely not a good start. I’m wondering if that’s their normal shipping time or does it take longer to get here from the U.K.?

  6. This subscription looks awesome! It’s just too pricey for me, otherwise I would be interested.

    • I completely agree! I can go to tjmaxx 5 minutes from my home & load up on way bigger good high end candles with a home item for that costs!

  7. I think I like this! I have a surplus in my sub box budget since I canceled Luxor and GlobeIn!
