Vellabox Ignis October 2018 - Candle In Reusable Drawstring Bag

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. (Love the pumpkin print, too! Bring on fall!)

And each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:

Now, on to the candle!

Vellabox Ignis October 2018 - Hay Rides Open Front

Untamed Supply Candle in Hay Rides – Retail Value $18

This 100% soy wax candle has a burn time of 45 hours.  The scent has notes of Apple, Spiced Orange, and Cinnamon – AKA Fall in a jar! And I love that this company makes nature-inspired scents, is ingredient-conscious, and donates 3% of their profits to The National Parks!

And each Vella Box also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:

Vellabox Ignis October 2018 - Ghirardelli Squares & Minis Top

Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate + Milk Chocolate Squares –

Vellabox Ignis October 2018 - Ghirardelli Minis Plated Vellabox Ignis October 2018 - Ghirardelli Squares Plated

I think chocolates + a candle is a wonderful combination, and these were delish!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $20+. 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!
