Here are the two candles in my box this month! How cute is the packaging? Both are from Greenmarket Purveying Co.
Crush Bergamot and Raspberry Candle – 3 oz, value: $9
This candle is limited edition, and I loooove it. It’s a combination of two of my favorite fragrances! Plus, it also has some geranium and light musk to fill out the scent.
The Archivist Blackberry & Rosewood Candle – 7 oz, value: $16
This candle smells like “tart blackberry with green apple, rosewood, & musk.” It’s also delicious. I love candles in jars/that have lids. This is a great fragrance for spring, too!

Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups – value: $2.49
These are a bonus item. I love this brand! I’m familiar with their nut butter packets and I’m always excited for chocolate!
The Verdict: I really like VellaBox. I love the packaging, and both of these candles are a hit with my tastes. Unfortunately, as far as value goes, I received $25 in candles for $30. There is the bonus item and “discovery/curation” aspect of this box, where it introduced me to some wonderful candles from a great brand, but I don’t think I would have paid the difference for a candle “personal shopper,” you know? I think this box has a lot of great things going for them, but I hope we can see a little better value from them in future boxes, or maybe they should have a different scaling of price increases between their different levels of subs.
