Shore Scents November 2018 Box Review
Here is the info sheet for the box. The front of the card made me feel like I was getting a letter from a friend.
The back lists the scents, their descriptions, and their retail value.
Fall Candle, 8 oz jar – Retail Value $12
While I am all aboard the pumpkin spice train, it was nice to get this fall scented candle that wasn’t so heavy on the pumpkin or spice. This candle has notes of cinnamon, citrus, apple, and cedarwood, and the combination is light and reminds me of the air on a crisp fall day. This 8-ounce candle has a 40 hour burn time and the braided cotton wick burns clean.
Warm Apple Pie Candle, 8 oz jar – Retail Value $12 (currently out of stock)
This was a refreshing twist on the typical apple pie scent! While this does have notes of cinnamon and clove, the apple smell was strong and it really provided a light and refreshing balance to the overall scent. The strong fruit notes make this unique to the other apple pie scents I have smelled recently, which are usually heavy on the spice and sweetness.
Strudel & Spice Thanksgiving Candle, 4 oz tin – Listed Value $5
The extras this month were two tin candles, and I am in love with the cute packaging on the lids! Strudel & Spice has that more typical spicy scent that is common this time of year, but it smells AMAZING- while I love all of the candle scents this month, I think this one is my favorite. Since this is 4 ounces I estimate the burn time to be about 20 hours, and this has the same braided cotton wick.
Vanilla Thankful Candle, 4 oz tin – Listed Value $5
This candle has a classic vanilla scent and also has some adorable packaging! I love Shore Scent’s suggestion to use these tin candles as a hostess gift with all of the holiday parties coming up- the presentation definitely makes these a great gift idea!
The Verdict: I am a candle addict, and I love that I can continue to grow my hoard collection with these Shore Scents candles! I really am starting to look forward to this box every month because I know that the quality and the scents will be amazing. This month was no exception, and I love the added special touch of the tin candles being ready to gift. Value-wise, this box has a value of $34, which is a few dollars above the total cost of the box plus shipping.
