D.L. & Co. Candle Subscription MA Box Review – Summer 2018

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 $50.15 a season, MA Box.

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

The Cost: $50.15 a box (Or $59 for a non-subscription, one-time box purchase)

Brazilian Guava Scented Candle – Retail Value $30

(This is an 8-ounce candle with a 37 hour burn time.)

First, I am loving the palm leaf print theme of this box – it has such a tropical luxe vibe! Very on trend, too.

The Brazilian Guava is light and sweet – I absolutely love it. It’s a blend of citrus with hints of jasmine and rose. In general, I found the scents in this box to not be as strong as other D.L. & Co candles, but that’s fine by me.

Brazilian Guava Scented Candle Tin – Retail Value $28

We have two candles this month with the same scent. This one is a tin with a lid. (The previous one was a glass vessel.)

It has a 65-hour burn time.

Palm Leaf Matches – Retail Value $7.50

I love that DL & Co includes stylish matches as well. These are longer than your typical match, too. (They measure 4 inches long.)

Brazilian Guava Diffuser – Retail Value $32

This has the same sweet and light scent as the candles.

Again, the scent isn’t as strong as some of the D. L. & Co. fragrances I’ve sampled, but it is noticeable in smaller rooms like a powder room.

Palm Leaves Journal – Retail Value $20

This journal features the palm print on the front and back and lined pages inside:

I love that D.L. & Co. includes non-candle home items in their boxes – and they don’t feel like filler, either. This is a quality notebook!

Brazilian Guava Scented Sachet – Retail Value $8

This sachet has a built-in hook so you can hang it in your closet, or keep it in a drawer.

(Again, same scent!)

Pillow Cover – Retail Value $16

This pillow cover measures 18 X 18 inches, features a hidden zipper, and has a fabric composition of 60% Polyester, 30% Cotton, and 10% Viscose.

I love the idea of changing out pillow covers with the seasons to mix up the look of your rooms, but I never seem to buy the replacement covers and do it. So sending me a pillow cover in a subscription box is a perfect way to make me actually do it!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $141.50! I think that’s amazing for a candle and home goods box that cost $50.15! (Or $45.15 with the BOX10 coupon). I absolutely love the palm print and cabana vibe of this box. It feels like a luxe vacation, and it’s a great way to add the palm print trend to your home. (Plus, I’m obsessed with the scent!)

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.

One thing to call out – usually these boxes are a mix of designs and scents. So if you want a variety this season’s box might not be for you.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! (You can also buy this as a one time purchase for $59.) Click here and use coupon code BOX10 to save 10% off a subscription!

  1. How do you subscribe to the Modern Alchemy box? On their website, it lists both subscriptions, but only has a link to the DL box, which I do not want. Does anyone know how to get this type box, or a link directly to it?

  2. This scent sounds amazing! Everything is so beautiful too. I love tropical vibes like this.

  3. This kind of sucks if you don’t end up liking that one scent. For $50, it’s quite a gamble to take. I generally prefer loose themes instead of tight themes like this where everything is too matchup for my tastes.

    • Trust me. It smells amazing!

    • If you don’t like it we will exchange the items you want different fragrances, but as others have said they loved the fragrance.

  4. This would’ve been great in the psmh box since they had that palm leaf pic that ended up having nothing to do with the box!

  5. I really wish I wasn’t allergic to candles. This is so beautiful

  6. Does anyone know about the cancellation policy? I spent some time looking for it in its website but unable to find it. Thank you in advance!

    • You can cancel anytime. Just log into your account or call our website directly.
