Shore Scents December 2018 Box Review
This month two of my candles arrived broken. When I contacted Shore Scents the immediately fast-tracked me replacement candles, and the entire process was quick, easy, and satisfactory.
Here is the info sheet for the box with details on the scents of the candles. This month, we received a subscriber-exclusive scent in the Winter Berry candle.
We also received some homemade cards to pass along to a friend this holiday season.
Gingerbread Candle, 8 oz – Retail Value $12
This candle combines warm vanilla with cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, caramel, ginger, and clove for that freshly-baked cookie scent that is perfect for this time of year. This 8-ounce candle has a 40 hour burn time and the braided cotton wick burns clean. I would say this scent throw is right around a 3, and it is perfect for lightly filling my living room with the delectable scent.
Christmas Candle, 8 oz – Retail Value $12
This candle has notes of pine, cedarwood, and fir balsam mixed with mint and fresh apple. I think it encapsulates the scent of Christmas perfectly, and I will be burning this long past December 25th. This candle is similar to the gingerbread candle in terms of its scent throw, and can lightly fill a big room or strongly fill a smaller one.
Winter Berry Candle, 4 oz – Estimated Value $7
This is a subscriber-exclusive candle scent with notes of cinnamon, fresh berries, and notes of orange, anise, and clove. While I was waiting for my replacements for the Gingerbread and Christmas candles I had this burning in my kitchen every chance I could, and it smelled lovely! I would put the scent throw on this one right at a 3 on the 1-5 scale.
The Verdict: I love my Shore Scents subscription! The candles always smell great and have good scent throw, and my experience with customer service this month in regards to the broken candles only solidified my opinion of the brand. My favorite scent this month was Christmas, but all of them were perfect December scents.
