Shore Scents February 2019 Box Review

Shore Scents Box February 2019 - info sheet Top

Here is the info sheet for the box.

Shore Scents Box February 2019 - Ocean City Front   Shore Scents Box February 2019 - Ocean City Open Top

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.

Shore Scents Box February 2019 - Kent Island Front Shore Scents Box February 2019 - Kent Island Open Top

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.

Shore Scents Box February 2019 - River Blossom Front Shore Scents Box February 2019 - River Blossom Open Top

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.

Shore Scents Box February 2019 - Wick Trimmer Top Shore Scents Box February 2019 - Wick Trimmer Front View

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!

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today?  No. Sign up by the last day of the month to receive next month’s box.

  1. Does this box ship via USPS? Thanks.

    • I subbed for a few months in the fall/early winter and I believe it was shipped USPS.

      • Thanks LB! :o)

  2. Great review but ouch….if you can burn all of the scents at once without it being over powering they must have hardly any scent at all. No throw so to speak.

    • Totally agree that is why I love Nest candles the scent will permeate my two story home!

      • Same here! I adore Nest candles for this reason.

    • From my experience with the few fall and winter scents I’ve tried, they do have a lighter throw. Not nearly as overpowering as a Yankee or Nest. Just a subtle scent in a large room. But I thought that was nice for days when I didn’t want to be smacked in the face with a candle. LOL. And the strength did slightly vary by scent so the more flowery ones probably are more subtle.
