Now, on to the candles!
Wooly Beast Candle in Rose City – Retail Value $25.99
This soy candle is perfect for rose lovers – it has a pure, natural rose scent. Unfortunately, I am not the biggest fan of rose scents, so I will be gifting this to someone who will love it. (I’m also impressed that Wooly Beast candles are phthalate-free, so I’m going to check out some of their other scents.
Wooly Beast Candle in Besos de CocoRose City – Retail Value $17.99
This scent is designed to smell like “you’re kissing someone special on a warm tropical island while sitting under a palm tree.” That’s a lot of pressure on a candle! 🙂
But it actually does smell fab! It’s not overly sweet like some coconut scents – the palm tree addition keeps the scent even.
And each Vella Box also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:
Tahoe Flavor Toffee – Sample
This toffee is made with hand roasted almonds and pecans, rich vanilla, milk chocolate and sea salt. It tasted just as good as it looks – my husband, Eric loved it!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $45 – I think that’s great for a $30 candle box! This box feels perfect for February, too. A floral candle + an island getaway candle + chocolate toffee = Valentine’s Day in a box!
