Luxor Box Best of the Best Special Edition Box Review

In addition to their bi-monthly subscription box, Luxor box also does Limited Edition boxes. This review is for the Special Edition “Best of the Best” Box. (No longer available).

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Everything in this box usually comes in its own packaging so it’s great for gifts. Here are the items out of the packaging:

FYI this box is no longer available for sale, but here are the box details:

The Box: Special Edition “Best of the Best” Box?

The Cost: $375 to the US, $395 to Canada

The Products: A luxurious gifts box including over $800 worth of items.

Each box comes with individual info cards per item, and some of the brands include coupon codes as well.

Now, on to the items!

Tilo Mid Summer Floral Scarf – Value $175

(Subscribers will either receive an orange or yellow pattern.)

This scarf comes in its own silver bag to protect it. (And it’s a delicate fabric, so you’ll want to keep this for storage.)

The fabric is 60% cashmere, 40% silk – which explains the $175 price tag! (And the material feels so soft and luxe.)

Here is a better look at the print:

Again, it’s a very lightweight/sheer fabric – you can see the individual threads. It’s such a well-made piece! And the perfect weight for summer. (I’m a little worried about snags, though!)

I normally don’t wear scarves in the summer, so now I’m trying to think of how to style it. Any suggestions? My current plan is a white top and jeans. (Not too creative, but a classic look!)

Halycon Days Agama Black & Gold Watch – Value $295

Halycon Days bracelets are always popular when they show up in Luxor Box, but this is the first time they sent a watch!

As always, the packaging is lovely! This box is even more substantial than the bracelet boxes as it flips open:

And here is a closer look at the watch:

The pattern on the band is subtly incorporated into the watch face as well – it’s a beautiful detail. And I love all the gold.

The band is black enamel fill with gold plated casing.

It fits loose on my wrist and has more of a bracelet style look:

This would be lovely stacked with some bracelets, too.

Halycon Days Antler Trellis Ivory Lavender Scented Filled Candle – Value $79

I didn’t know Halycon Days made candles! What a nice surprise!

The pattern is inspired by the deer antlers which hung in the domed ceiling of Gordon Castle. And the vessel is English Fine Bone China.

The scent is described as lavender, but I don’t really detect the lavender floral scent. It’s light and powdery – and the scent isn’t too strong either.

Mottahedah Blue Canton Soap Dish Set – Value $75

More gorgeous packaging! Luxor Box is one of those subscriptions where each of the individual items is always ready to gift on its own!

And look how lovely everything is packaged when you open the box, too. This just screams hostess gift to me!

Inside there are 3 soaps and a soap dish.

The soaps are very fragrant – they have notes of “blooming rose, jasmine and tart cassis with the richness of fleshy Damascus plum and white peach. A base of golden sandalwood and liquid amber completes this unique blend.”

And the soaps fit perfectly with this soap dish:

This soap dish is porcelain, with the classic Blue Canton design.

This would be lovely in a powder room. I tend to go for minimal scents with hand soaps, so I may end up gifting this.

Rose et Marius Casteu Gold Limited Edition Tumbler – Value $225

This tumbler is a rare Limited Edition – only 300 were made. (Each one is numbered on the bottom.)

And each tumbler comes with a certificate of authenticity:

This tumbler can be used with their refillable candles and/or diffusers. (They cast a beautiful glow with a lit candle inside.)

Here is a better look at the gold detail work. Gorgeous!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $849. I think that’s great for a $375 box – especially since they spoiled both the watch and the tumbler beforehand. Also – no filler items! Everything in this box is luxe and special on its own.

This is a very pricey box, but I feel like Luxor Box stuck to the brands they know their subscribers loved and sent very special giftable items. Between that and spoiling two of the most expensive items, I’m thinking most people who bought the box will be happy with the purchase.

What do you think of the Special Edition “Best of the Best” Box?

  1. My box arrived yesterday. I’m really happy with it.
    I LOVE the watch. It’s really beautiful.
    I got the Orange scarf I wanted. 😊
    I’m surprised the REM tumbler didn’t come with the candle refill, but it’s really lovely with a votive in it.
    Didn’t know Halcyon Days had candles (& a little confused why there are 2 candle vessels in a box of 5 items. I would have liked a jewelry item, leather good or skincare). but I’m already using both.
    The soap dish & soaps are really pretty & smell great, but don’t fit my decor so put up for swap.
    I know this box isn’t for everyone. No box is for everyone.
    Now I’m patiently waiting for my Black Box.

  2. I would never spend that much on a box. With that being said I don’t like anything in the Box. I agree with the other comment I would much rather pick out my own watch, soap dish ect.. but with my iPhone + I don’t even wear a watch anymore. Don’t get me wrong everyone is paying for the name brands…. but with this money I can go to Puerto Vallarta & stay at an all inclusive hotel for 5 days. (Which is where I’m going in Dec again) I see the MFSR but I seriously think its way over inflated. To those of you who like everything I’m happy for you. Me personally I would never spend more then 100.00 on a box even a LE

  3. I love this box. I actually loved every item. I love the soap and soap dish so much. That watch is lovely. The scarf so luxe. I can’t wait until I can subscribe to Luxor. I can’t wait to swap for it some day but so far no luck lol!

  4. This looks like a lovely box. I don’t wear scarves but the porcelain I love!

  5. I really like the contents of this box. It depends on what you like. Beauty boxes are great but I prefer to choose my own products. Same with skincare. But really boxes are designed for people to try items out at a discounted price before committing to larger products or full price. With that being said, people complaining about the price of this box will be the very same ones trying to swap for the items from this box.

  6. I do love the scarf! I think I’ll show this box to my husband and brag about what a frugal shopper I am for “only” subscribing to a few beauty boxes.

  7. The scarf is so pretty. I think with there already being white in it, it might pop out better with a peach or light pink top.

    • I’d have to suggest maybe a green top (one of the two greens that is in the scarf)…

  8. In the words of my favorite You Tuber….
    Das Esspensive!

    • It sure is! I’m sure that KL would agree!

  9. I like to look at the Luxor unboxings as a sort of fantasy, but I wouldn’t dream in a million years of paying this kind of outrageous money for a subscription box. 225 bucks for a tumbler? I don’t care if 300, 3000, or 3 were made, it’s ridiculous. The watch is very nice, too, but not 300 dollars nice. Nonetheless, everything does seem very luxe. If I had this kind of money to spend on a subscription box, I’d have this kind of money to choose my own 300 dollar watch or 225 dollar tumbler.

    • But those who got the box are not paying retail (or MSRP) values for the items in the box. They didn’t pay $849 for it. Just like the folks who bought June’s PSMH didn’t pay $132 for it.

      On average, this Luxor box costs 44% of the retail price. That works out to a $77 scarf, a $130 watch, a $35 candle, $33 soaps & dish, and a $99 tumbler. So although the total cost of the box might seem a lot, broken down, each (or at least most) items seem quite reasonable, especially considering the high quality and “giftability” of the items.

    • I agree 100%. I got a Luxor box once ages ago and it was ok – but was nowhere near this price point of the LE box. Regardless, no way in the world I would spend this kind of money on a box like this when probably 90% of items are totally NOT for me – or anyone I know… Even if they were, it just seems ridiculous. An old lady scarf (in the summer no less) and a yellow gold watch (at least that’s the way it looks to me)?!? The rest does impress either… So many things I could pick out on my own and get EXACTLY what I want for less! To each their own… 🙂

  10. Box envy! I should’ve gotten this but with the steep price tag i didn’t want to risk it.
