Shore Scents February 2019 Box Review
Here is the info sheet for the box.
Ocean City Rose, 8 oz tin – Retail Value $10
Ocean city rose is a blend of ocean air, rose, and citrus-inspired by marine freshness. This scent is very light and fresh, and it will gently scent the surrounding air. This is a great background candle where you want a flame going but not a strong scent.
Kent Island Hibiscus, 8 oz tin – Retail Value $10
This is a floral and fruity scent blend of hibiscus (of course), pineapple, tuberose, and vanilla musk. This has a slightly stronger scent than ocean city rose, but it isn’t an aggressive fragrance by any means.
Wye River Blossom, 8 oz jar – Estimated Value $12
Wye River Blossom is a blend of neroli, sandalwood, jasmine, and bergamot. It smells like a floral bouquet, and it really is a great spring scent. All Shore Scents candles are made with 100% soy wax that was grown in the USA, and the wicks are cotton braided.
Wick Trimmer – Retail Value $8
I was so excited to see this in the box – I have been really needing a wick trimmer! This one is heavy duty and should stand up to any wick I throw at it, and it snips the end of the wick with ease.
The Verdict: While floral candle scents aren’t usually my thing, I appreciated how lovely these candle scents were. My preferred way of burning them has actually been to burn them at the same time to evoke a bouquet of lovely floral notes, and I have been happy with how it freshens up my apartment without being overpowering. Getting the wick trimmer was a great bonus, too!
