I Love Fall Candle, 9oz – Estimated Value $16 (available to purchase on The Burlap Bag website soon!)

This candle had me at fall! It is spicy without being overpowering, although the scent lingered throughout my house after burning for about an hour. This fragrance has notes of roasted chestnuts warmed with spiced berries, clove, and nutmeg. All of these elements come together to create a smooth, creamy tobacco-esque scent that I just can’t get enough of; cozy and warm, this is my idea of a sexy candle!

Welcome to my fall nook! This candle fits right in with all of my favorite sparkling fall decor.

Verdict: If you are a fan of sophisticated scents and understated, apothecary-inspired styles, then you will love this subscription. This is my first The Burlap Bag Candle Club Subscription box, but so far, I am hooked! I really like the idea of getting one special, limited edition candle to burn each month; this may save me from stockpiling and hoarding seasonal candles until the time is right to burn them (plus save me a ton of money on cheaper candles, since this one should last 70+ hours). This subscription’s packaging and quality are great, and I would definitely recommend it for the perfect treat yo’self moment.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the November box. If you are interested in purchasing the I Love Fall scent, it will be available on The Burlap Bag website soon.

Value Breakdown: The cost of this box is $15 and has a retail value of $16, plus free shipping. If you were to buy this candle from their website, you would pay $6 shipping, making the total for one candle $22.
