This month’s candle subscription box is called “For the Love of Books.”
On the opposite side of the theme card, it lists information about all the featured candle companies.
Hearth & Hammer Burning Books Literary Soy Candle – 8 oz, Value $18
(35 hour burn time)
I couldn’t wait to burn this candle because it smells amazing! The fragrance is a perfect combination of cinnamon, orange, and fir. I love how warm and cozy this is!
From the Page “Reading Nook” Soy Candle – 4 oz, Value $6
(~26 hour burn time)
This candle’s fragrance is a mix of bergamot, coriander, amber, and vanilla. It’s another warm scent, and slightly earthy and subtly sweet. It’s definitely one that I can see lighting to curl up and read in a comfy chair or nook.
Paper Street Candle Co. Harry Potter Tea Light Set – Value $6?
It doesn’t look like this particular Harry Potter-themed set is listed in their Etsy shop right now, so I got the value from this coffee lover’s tea light set (uh, YUM). Anyways, these are really cute – I love the color combination, too. They’re all different fragrances but are generally a variation of musky-sweet or earthy. I like them all and burned them at the same time yesterday, and the scents worked well together.
And, as always, FlickerBox included one of their branded matchbooks. I love that they do this – it's so simple and easy to keep on hand by my candles around the house.
Verdict: I liked that Flicker Box chose a literary theme for their January 2017 box! Obviously, I’m always happy when I love all the candles they send – I already have these swapped in for my holiday candles around the house. The value adds up to $30, which is less than the cost, so I’m a little bummed with that. I do know I wouldn’t have found these candles without discovering them through FlickerBox, but I would have loved another full-size candle instead of the tea lights, or maybe a couple little votives, or something like that to even out the value a little more.
What do you think about the January Flicker Box?
