Robb Vices is “a membership program centered on a monthly delivery of storied treasures.” Each month, they send a collection of curated products and/or experiences.


Subscribers should expect boxes to include “vices” like “exceptional wines and spirits to enjoy, foods to taste, tools, toys, accessories, and gadgets.”

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

With each shipment, Robb Vices sends out a glossy booklet that outlines the products and curation story of each box.



This month’s box is described as a “full sensory experience” with romance in mind, and the first item is included to help memorialize “the most classic symbol of affection.”


Museum of Named Diamonds Gift Card – Value $100

It’s a gift certificate that covers the cost of registering a diamond into the Museum of Named Diamonds!


This concept is totally new to me, but it’s such a sweet idea. Here’s a description:

The Museum of Named Diamonds (MoND for short) is an online non-profit operated by experts in the diamond industry dedicated to telling each diamond’s life story. They give light to personal stories behind beloved, passed-down family diamonds as well as massive, globally recognized rocks like the Hope Diamond.

I have a non-traditional engagement ring that contains a yellow sapphire instead of a diamond, but my grandmother has an heirloom diamond ring and I think she’d love to share its story. I’ll happily pass this gift certificate along to her. 

The next item is a bottle of Merlot from Napa’s Davis Estates!



2012 Davis Estates Merlot – Value $50

And this isn’t just any old bottle of wine— it’s amazingly delicious! The mouthfeel is lush and velvety, and it’s a little smoky with a solid dose of spice and rich flavors of black cherry, plum, and strawberry. It’s rare that I’m willing to drop $50 on wine, so this bottle feels like a special treat. It’s nice (and very romantic!) to be able to share such a great wine with someone special.



fix chocolates a tryst – Value $20

What’s more romantic than a bottle of red wine? Red wine and chocolate!


This sampler from fixx chocolates contains a selection of six different flavors, each one inspired by and named for one of the chocolatier’s family members.

They’re all tasty, but I’m particularly partial to this little guy:


Mike’s fixx is made with layers of almond nougat, morello cherries, and roasted almonds. So good!


Herb & Root Spiced Vanilla Glaze Massage Oil – Value $30

Herb & Root’s Spiced Vanilla Glaze Massage Oil is made with a combination of coconut oil and sweet almond oil, and it’s infused with cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg. Each bottle also contains a whole bourbon vanilla bean.


The aroma of this oil is intoxicating! It smells just like freshly ground spices and reminds me of freshly brewed chai tea. The combination of oils has a nice, slippery feel that seems like it will be perfect for massage. Robb Vices also points out that this oil is edible… so… yeah.


Love is Art Kit – Listed Value $79

The last item in this month’s box is a custom designed kit for Robb Vices from Love is Art. Here’s a description:

Each Love is Art kit includes all of the materials a couple needs to safely craft a large abstract painting while being intimate on canvas.

Here’s a shot of what’s included inside the cardboard kit:


The kit includes a large drop cloth, treated-cotton canvas, and two pairs of slippers.


The canvas is two-sided, and the display side is jet black. Robb Vices also included two paints (white and metallic gold) to use with the kit. The paints are specially formulated and non-toxic.

There’s also a mesh body scrubber included.


At first, I was surprised to see this kit included, as it’s a bit more risqué than the items I’ve seen in previous Robb Vices boxes. It’s well put together, though, and it definitely fits the theme of  “sensual romance”!

Verdict: I was so curious to see what a Robb Vices Valentine’s Day box would look like, and I’m not disappointed. Robb Vices has a knack for curating boxes that almost always feel unique and surprising, and this box is no exception. I love that they reliably seek out items that I’ve never seen featured in a subscription box before! A couple of the items in this shipment are definitely a little on the spicy side, but the box still manages to feel luxe and high end to me. The retail value of the items in this month’s box comes to a total of $279. Even for someone like me who can’t use the gift card, the value is still pretty incredible!

What do you think of this box from Robb Vices?

  1. I am desperately wanting to swap for the massage oil! Please reach out to me if willing!! Thank you!

    • Judith-
      I have the oil up on the swaps page! Happy to swap, I’ll check your listings.

  2. Just got the March 2017 box and I am NOT happy with it. Do you know how Robb vices handles dis satisfied customers? Can a horrible box be exchanged for a past good one? Can I send back this one box and be credited an extra month at the end of my subscription (6 months)? I’d list specifics on why I don’t like this month’s box but don’t want to give away the surprise (as some people might actually like it). Thanks!

    • Hi, can you email what is in it? Mine is not here until Monday and this is my first sub with them. Thanks! chrishall55 at Yahoo dot com. Thank you!!!! I hope we can cancel if we do not like it!

    • I received my March box today. Do not like at all, but that is just me. My brother would LOVE it. This is my first Robb Vices box and I do like the curation but just not for me. I am going to cancel for now and likely rejoin in the fall, after watching it for a bit. Enjoy to everybody that likes this kind of stuff. Like Mike said I don’t want to spoil the surprise as a lot of people would love it!

  3. Loved this box. it’s different than what I was wanting but I LOVED the wine too. My husband and I made the “Love is Art” painting and it was fun. We are hanging it up in our living room (hehe). The massage oil is nice and isn’t greasy. Overall, it made our Valentines weekend fun and romantic.

  4. Hello! Has anyone else received paints that have dates of January 2017 on them and enquired if they were born on or expiration dates? Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Lisa,
      The date you see on your paint bottle is the date the paint was mixed, all paint has a three year shelf life.

      Thank you,
      -The Robb Vices Team

      • Thanks so much for your rapid response. I figured it was a born on but wanted to make sure! Have a great day 🙂

  5. Anyone think of the Big Bang Theory and those body paints??

    • I did! Haha!

  6. I am determined to get my honey to get us this box. I liked the oil and that body paint looked really fun. Hehe. They always give you so much over the price for the box and it’s always very adult and creative.

  7. I love the sound of this box. I wish i could sub to it, just too much $$$ for me right now. I would have to dump many others to swing it.

  8. Wow they truely are so amazing. I only subscribed for December and Jan for my better half but it turned into a box for the both of us. I not really a drinker and I live in MA where they do not ship but luckily CT is 10 mins from me so I sent it to a family member. Those are my issues and wish they made one with liquor and one with out and that would fix the issue with many states. I wish I could keep getting it but I just can’t right now and it breaks my big heart. I was shocked by last months box and the total of the products was close to 400… What an amazing fun box subscribers got for this month…. So sexy. You ROCK MY WORLD RV…

    • Same. Next month will be my last box for a while and I hate to say goodbye (and I’m also convinced that they’ll come out with the greatest box ever as soon as I do), but I have to drop it because of the cost. But in the great words of Arnold Schwarzenegger, I’ll be back 🙂

  9. After 4 yrs of subbing to boxes, I think this might be my favorite lifestyle box ever! This box was packed with so much fun and goodness. The wine was amazing. Also I love that they have been including clean beauty brands.

    • I just signed up for the first time! Going to start at month to month. I have tried so many boxes over the last few years. Going to drop everything except Allure and Robb Vices. As great as POPSUGAR, FFF and Globein are, I need a break for a bit from those types of products. I love Allure, so keeping that one 🙂 So looking forward to Robb Vices for some new and interesting things. I hope there is not a ton of alcohol though since I mostly just drink Bud Light, lol. I assume I will start with the March box right?

  10. Uh, where is your painting, Lindsey??

  11. I had been eyeing this box for months. This month sold me! I subscribed yesterday, but I think my first box is March.

  12. If I sign up today, will I get the Feb box?

    • Pretty sure it will be March. You had to sign up before Feb 1 to receive February.

  13. I loved this box! I too love the fact that Robb Vices often sends unique gifts and even if some of the items are not unique (like the water bottle), they are all very high end. The chocolates were amazing and I really loved the peanut butter one. I also have loved the marshmallows and the granola that we received in past boxes ! Even though this box is expensive, I always feel that I get my money’s worth out of it. The one thing i didn’t really like in this box was the gift card. Would have been nice to have a small piece of jewelry or a gemstone instead.

  14. Mind blown.

  15. Wow! Love it! If anyone wants to swap the paint or oil my name is attached to my swap profile. What a cool box! I don’t drink so I don’t subscribe because more often than not the focus is on the alcohol but it’s nice to see them branching out too

    • Hi Marissa, I’m still wait list for swaps (no idea how that works, I’m new to MSA and boxes in general!) but I’d be happy to swap out the paint set!

      • The swap site opens up about once a month from what I heard? Not sure if that’s right or not but I’m down to be your first swap on here! You will love this site, it really is addicting though so be careful. Itsy was my gateway box, don’t have it anymore but now I have tried about 12 boxes since then!
