This month’s candle collection is called “Beans and Leaves”

On the opposite side of the theme card, it lists all the candles and their descriptions.

Lit & Co. Pumpkin Spice Latte Soy Candle – 6 oz, value: $9.50?

This candle smells amazing – obviously the Pumpkin Spice scent is super appropriate for Fall. I smell a lot of pecan in it, too, in addition to some espresso in the base. This will be a great candle to burn this season. I’m a sucker for anything with fall spices and coffee!

Copper & Clover Handcrafted Candle, Turkish Latte – 4 oz, value: $10

This candle is so perfect for me. It smells like a strong, simple latte with a bit of vanilla and cardamom. I love burning this in my office during the day while I work!

Mosley Lane Hazelnut Kona Mason Jar Candle – 11 oz, value: $15.99

Is there such a thing as a candle soul mate? Because this has to be mine. The label describes it as “coffee lover’s fantasy of toasted hazelnuts, roasted kona, sweet chocolate, vanilla bean & ground cinnamon.” My go-to desserts or coffees are anything with cinnamon and vanilla so I’m pretty sure they made this candle just for me. It smells spot-on and I keep this in my kitchen to light in the mornings. I also made the (marvelous) mistake of browsing Mosley Lane’s other scents and now I have to order one of their entire inventory.

Verdict: The second I saw that this month’s Flicker Box was themed around “Beans and Leaves” and saw the coffee theme, I knew this was going to be my favorite Flicker Box yet. I’m in love with all three candles they sent and have been burning them pretty much daily ever since opening this box. The value comes out to $35.49 which is less than the $34 + shipping but I love all these candles and never would have found them myself so I’m not mad one bit.

What do you think about the September Flicker Box?

  1. Sounds like amazing scents! I quit Flickerbox since I loved food scents and they never sent them.
