First up – the large candle subscription review. This box is $39.95 + $5 shipping:
D.L. & Co. Candle in Lavende Citron – Value $85
This candle brand is new to me and WOW it is luxe! The packaging is so gorgeous – this would be such a fabulous gift to give (or receive!)
Subscribers to the large box received one of the following scents based on their preferences: Ambre Epice, Cedre Noir, Lavende Citron, or Vanilla Peche.
I absolutely love this glass and gold metallic glass vessel – it will work perfectly with our decor. The scent is great too. I filled out the scent profile for this box and selected mostly citrus scents, so they matched me well! This citrus scent is a little sweeter than I expected, but it works.
And this candle is pretty large too. Here it is in hand to give a better sense of scale:
Now onto the medium box (which costs $29.95 plus $5 shipping):
One thing worth mentioning – the packaging on this box is fantastic. I think it would make a great gift subscription for a candle lover.
Red Flower Candle in Italian Blood Orange – Value $38
Yay for more citrus scents! (The Italian Blood Orange is my favorite of all Red Flower scents).
Subscribers of the medium will receive one of the following scents based on their scent preferences: Icelandic Moonflower, Spanish Gardenia, Italian Blood Orange, Ocean, Moroccan Rose, Indian Jasmine, Japanese Peony, or Wanderlust.
This is a petal topped candle, and you can use those candles for extra fragrance. For now I’m leaving the petals on the candle and placing it on my desk!
Here is a look of it in hand for scale:
Verdict: I think this is a well-done subscription and would be a great gift for a candle lover. (Especially since they cater to scent preferences, and seem to do a good job at it!). Based on this month alone, I would recommend signing up for the Large box over the Medium box since it has the better value ($45 for an $85 candle vs $35 for a $38 candle). I would like to see a few more boxes before I officially declare that the better value, though!
