Nosejoy September 2018 “Orchard Aromas” Review

Nosejoy usually sends this welcome card with a welcome note from the sub’s curator with an info slip that gives a little description of each item in your box. Sometimes there are even subscriber discount codes, but that’s not the case this month. September’s theme is Orchard Aromas, and oh my gosh I could smell a rich fruitiness emanating from this box before I even opened it!

Rosy Rings Fig & Poppy Botanical Wax Sachet — Retail Value $12.00

Holy smokes, how beautiful is this packaging? I wasn’t sure what to expect from a wax sachet, but I barely cared because I feel like this box is something worth savoring. Yay for it being made in the USA (in Denver, no less: the source of so many good things)!

It slides open matchbox-style, which is a cool touch that adds to the magic of the first opening experience.

It’s wrapped neatly in a piece of tissue paper—packaged with such care.

And, wow, how beautiful is the sachet itself? It smells like a blissfully floral potpourri. It’s recommended to hang it in a closet or put it in your top drawer—I actually have two top drawers (with bras and underwear separated) and my underwear drawer already has a pine-scented sachet in it from a previous Nosejoy box, so now my bra drawer is going to smell awesome, too!

Paddywax Library Tin Candle, Edgar Allan Poe — Retail Value $8.00

I’m familiar with these Paddywax tin candles from Nosejoy—I got a spiced-smelling one in December that I ended up using as a stocking-stuffer, and it was perfect for that. But, I’m happy to have another one for myself now. This one has a Cardamom-Absinthe-Sandalwood scent to it, which manifests sort of as faintly floral with a musky texture to it. It’s really pleasant. And, it was hand-poured in Nashville!

Luxo Banho Port Pear Bathing Oval Soap, 150g — Retail Value $7.00

This soap has by far the strongest scent of any of the products in September’s box—I think it’s what I could smell radiating out of the box when it first arrived. The aroma is called Port Pear, and I’d say that similar to the candle above, it has a low-key sweet, fruity feel to it without being too feminine. I can’t wait to bathe myself in this scent! I like that it has a short ingredients list and wasn’t tested on animals.

Beekman Fresh Air Body & Hand Lotion, 8 oz. — Retail Value $7.50

Here’s another cruelty-free product; one which leaves out parabens, phthalates, and mineral oils. Its “fresh air” scent is very subtle and neutral, which I think is a good thing for a lotion that you’re going to apply to your body! It’s a somewhat thin lotion that spreads nicely.

Mangiacotti Pomegranate Mini Lip Repair, 0.15 oz. — Retail Value $6.50

The last item this month is a set of three little pomegranate-flavored lip balms. They were made from a combo of organic and non-GMO ingredients in the USA, and finished by “citizens with disabilities” per their packaging. What an awesome company to support (again, one that I’ve encountered in Nosejoy boxes past)! I went from feeling like the pomegranate scent of this product was a little artificial-smelling to hardly being able to detect it at all once it was on my lips. Either way, it feels really smooth and soothing on! Unfortunately, I’m one of those people who loses lip balms left and right, so hopefully, I can keep these around for longer than normal!

Verdict: I’m really happy with the products in the September Nosejoy box! They’re a mix of use-everyday and more specialty products, and they range from super-scented to more subtle—a nice variety. Most of these products are made in the USA and some have gone an extra step with their eco-friendly, clean, and/or altruistic efforts, which I love. Value-wise, this month’s items exceeded the cost of the box again, which is beginning to become the case more regularly. The box costs $34.95 (with free shipping), and the contents add up to $41.00. I’m cool with that value!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your subscription will start with the October box. Sign up by the 15th to get that month’s box. 

Coupon – Use code MSA5 to save $5 off your first box!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $34.95 + free shipping, which means that each of the 5 items in the box has an average cost of $6.99. That’s under the retail value of 4 out of the 5 items, of course without the added cost of shipping were you to order the product from its original site.

That Paddywax scent is hands down one of my favorites of all time!

Christen Russo

Agreed, it’s soooo good!

Emily

(box owner Emily here) As I mentioned in the box insert, this soap is one of my all time faves. I was so bummed that due to shipping times, it was the last item to arrive for packing. I was looking forward to being in the presence of a ridiculous amount of Pear Amazingness for a bit… but my fantasy was fleeting! Had to send them all right back out. I keep a bar at my desk and just pick it up and sniff it all the time. Ha!

Christen Russo

Wow great idea, I might have to do that with my bar until I’m ready to use it!!! Thanks for yet another amazing box!

Pamela

I love this box. Its probably the longest I’ve ever gotten any sub. She has great themes and manages to come up with new and different types of amazing scented products every month.

Emily

Thank you! I appreciate you as a subscriber. I thought you might enjoy the fruit theme this month!

Pam

Of course you are right, but I love every month! The scents are all great and and you find the most unusual products!

Noelle L

This box is up there with Margot Elena with their presentation and products to me.. Such a nice array of goodies this month.

Luna

Wow.. that wax sachet is beautiful! I’ve never heard of such a thing before. Due to product overload, I decided to cut down on my subs, and despite Nose Joy being one of my favorite boxes, it didn’t quite make the cut at being ones of the boxes I decided to keep, but seeing this month’s box reminds me of why it’s one of my favorites. 🙂

SusanY

Ok, now I’m dying to know what made the cut???

Luna

Haha 😀 Well, the ones I decided to stay subbed to are Art of Organics, Beauty Heroes, Botanic+Terre, Boxwalla, Maple Blume, Mintd, Pearlesque, Sisley, and Detox Box.

I do have a few others (Margot Elena, Clean Beauty Routine, & Rose Post) I’m trying to finish up prepaids on, but once they’re done, I don’t plan on re-subscribing right away…. except for Margot Elena, but only if I can get another 30% discount off of the annual. 🙂

I also have an Allure, but will cancel after the October box.

I think that’s it! 😀
