The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. (Love this minimalist pine tree print.)
And each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:
Now, on to the candle!
Banter & Bliss Candle Co. in Amber & Teak – Retail Value $22
This 7-ounce 100% soy wax candle has a burn time of 50+hours. The scent has top notes of ginger, pepper, and allspice on a base of amber, musk, and woody notes. It’s a perfect transition to fall scent for me.
And all their candles are made with a coconut wax blend, and the formulas are phthalate-free and paraben-free!
And each Vella Box also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:
Ahmad Tea Earl Grey Tea Bags (Set of 2)
I drink several cups of tea a day, so tea is always a welcome extra in a subscription box! Now I just need a book to curl up with! Candle + tea + book = cozy fall goals, right?
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $22+. That’s right at the $22 a month cost. (Other months the value has been slightly above or right at the $22 cost.) If you love discovering new independent candle makers – I would definitely recommend this subscription. Their curation is excellent!
