D.L. & Co. Candle Subscription Box Review – Winter 2017
D.L. & Co. is a candle company that recently launched two quarterly candle subscriptions. (You might have seen their candles in Box of Style and Breo Box.) This is the review of their $59, Modern Alchemy Box.
The box arrives in a gorgeous reusable box with a magnetic flap lid. (The gold foil text on the lid is classy, too!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: D.L. & Co. Modern Alchemy Box
The Cost: $59 a box + $8.95 shipping (ships quarterly)
The Products: A collection of candles, home fragrance, and other home goods.
Ships to: Worldwide. (Outside of the US, the shipping cost is $55)
Glistening Emerald Pine Candle – Retail Value $40
One theme you will notice with this subscription is the gorgeous packaging. Everything could be gifted individually if you like! This candle comes in a velvet flocked box with gold accents. Inside, the candle is in a green glass vessel with a gold foil label:
The candle is 8 ounces with a burn time of about 40 hours. The scent is described as:
Fresh cut branched of vivid fir, green mistletoe and bright holly embellished with spicy clove bud and cinnamon nestled on a fragrant bed of fresh evergreen.
It’s a little sweeter than some pine candles, but it’s a unique scent and I like it!
Burn Peruvian Flowering Tobacco Scented Reed Diffuser – Retail Value $36
This set includes a square glass bottle and reed diffuser sticks:
I’m having a hard time describing this scent, so I’ll let D.L. & Co. do it for me:
The fragrance of Tobacco Flower and leaf are actually lovely, soft and creamy and could never be mistaken for a late night in a smoke filled bar. Paired with warm Vanilla and Tonka Beans, velvety Cashmere accords, mellow golden Amber, White Musk and a base of rich balsamic notes, sweet dry pipe tobacco and a touch of earthy Elderwood this scent is the essence of sensual smoothness.
To me, this fragrance has a bit of a soapy-scent, which I don’t love, but it’s a good fit for our powder room!
Sparkling Champagne Set of 3 Candles – Retail Value $23
Again with this fabulous packaging! Gold foil fans rejoice!
These votive glass vessels are gorgeous and look even better when the candles are lit and flickering!
Each candle is 2.5 oz with a burn time of 15 hours. The scent reminds me of my favorite sweet champagne, too!
Lady Rhubarb Scented Medallion & Refresher Oil – Retail Value $25
This ceramic medallion is designed to hang in a closet. Just add a few drops of the refresher oil to add scent.
The scent is a sweet, fruity blend of Red Mandarin, Sandalwood, and Grapefruit.
Shoot for the Moon Journal + Candle Set – Retail Value $30
This journal measures 6″ by 8″ and includes 80 lined pages.
I love the tiny star print, too!
And it is paired with a matching candle.
This candle is a little smaller than the ones in the votive set – it’s 2 oz.
The scent is a blend of Prickly Pear, Thorn Apple, Anjou Pear, Caribbean Vetiver, South Sea Patchouli, and Oakmoss. It might be my favorite scent in the box – and my husband Eric loves this one, too!
Thorn Apple Mini Room Spray – Retail Value $15
And it’s a good thing we love this scent, because we get it in room spray version, too!
I’m guessing this is about 2 ounces. The scent is very concentrated, so you only need one quick spray to scent a room – it should last for a while!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $169! I think that’s amazing for a home goods box that cost $67.95. ($59 + $8.95 shipping). Everything in this box is impressive, too – the packaging and scents are all stunning, and this could be a great box to gift, or to split up into multiple gifts.
