Zodiac Quarterly Spring 2019 “Leo” Review
This is the first Zodiac Quarterly box so I am pretty excited to dive in. Included was a helpful booklet that listed each of our items included this month along with images.
Arabella Crystals ‘Leo’ Candle, 4 oz – Retail Value $13.99 (Etsy seller is currently away on a break)
This ‘Leo’ themed candle is scented with a really heady blend of pure cinnamon and vanilla. It also has notes of nutmeg, cream, and cloves. I enjoy these sort of scents and find that many Leo products follow these sort of vibes. I wish I could for once have some sort of magical firey leather scent associated with a Leo product. I love a wood wick candle so I was especially excited at the fun cracking sounds that came from this as it burned. Made of 100% soy wax, expect enough fragrance to fill a medium sized room and a nice, clean, even burn.
Madame Zoya ‘Leo’ Wall Hanging – Retail Value $30.95
This rather large (14 x 11 inches) 100% cotton printed canvas is pretty heavy duty thanks fo the wooden frame. Featuring an allover Leo inspired print, you can leave it as is or I imagine you could color it in with paints or markers. I don’t really love items like this because they feel like something I might have had in my dorm room rather than my current home, but I can see how it would easily work in this box.
Skeem Design ‘Full Moon’ Matches – Retail Value $12.00
This is an odd quirk, but I absolutely LOVE fancy matches. There is something so satisfying about lighting a special candle with an actual match rather than a lighter. These are so moody and lovely, solid black and in a gorgeous full moon silkscreened glass bottle. The striker is built in on the side and the 40 matches stay safe and dry thanks to a little cork topper. Love.
Zodica Perfumery ‘Leo’ Perfume, 8 ml – Retail Value $40.00
Here we go. This and the matches are exactly the sort of high-end Zodiac type item I expect to see in a more expensive subscription. You might recognize this type of twist and spray bottle because it is almost identical to Scentbird’s. The packaging is beautifully branded and feels incredibly luxe, coming with a ton of additional info on the perfume itself and all the other scents offered under different signs. I was fully expecting this to be another sort of typical Leo spice + vanilla sort of scent but I was so pleasantly surprised to find a perfume composed with notes of citrus, gardenia and jasmine flowers, and sweet honeysuckle. Lest I make this scent sound far too sweet, the base notes are musky, with a healthy dose of patchouli. It smells like blinding summer sun, wet petals, and heavy air. I love it. Also worth noting is that the bag itself has a cute little Leo charm that is totally something I would save to wear on a chain around my neck. I was surprised to also find this brand sold at Macy’s, as well as on Etsy.
Madame Zoya ‘Leo’ Throw Pillow – Retail Value $24.95
This pretty sizable (16 x 16 inches) 100% polyester throw pillow came complete with an insert, which you wouldn’t think was worth mentioning except I think I have always gotten just cases in other boxes. it has the Leo star sign on one side and the easily recognizable symbol on the other. The color is a very pretty pale coral. Again, I don’t generally decorate with my sign in my house, but this pillow is really well done and there s something minimalistic about it that I do enjoy.
Along with our other Leo inspired goodies comes a stone or crystal hand selected for its association with your zodiac sign. Mine was a beautiful carnelian stone. As far as stones in subscription boxes go, this one was on the larger end! It is a really interesting specimen because of the weird banding inside the center. Because of this, it would be classified as both a carnelian and an agate, which is pretty cool. Carnelian is a bold stone, said to help you speak your truth and boost confidence and creativity. The included card has a ton of info on the stone which is great for learning more.
Canvas Jewelry Gemstone Bracelet – Retail Value $20.00
Finally, we received a rather pretty bangle bracelet with a long focal piece of smokey grey glass. It is a perfect piece for wearing alone or layering and I found that it fit well with my watch. I like the soft matte goldtone finish and the clever loop and peg closure keep it secure on your wrist.
The Verdict: A brand new box is always exciting, especially when the subject matter is something you are really interested in. There were some real winners for me in this Zodiac Quarterly and I love that smaller and independent brands/sellers were included. Let’s start with the gorgeous perfume! The scent was awesome and I loved the travel-friendly spritzer bottle. I also really loved the candle and large carnelian stone. The matches were another highlight, though I realize not everyone is totally in love with fancy matches. The bangle bracelet was another completely wearable addition. All of these items felt higher end, which felt good inside a rather expensive box. The misses for me were absolutely the canvas and the jury is still out on the pillow. I feel like the other items felt so elevated and hand-picked that these last two didn’t match the rest somehow.
Value-wise, we did ok. This box costs $100 and the overall value of the items (minus the carnelian stone) is $141.89. The booklet suggests the stone has a value of between $20-40 so you could be looking at an overall value of between $161.89-$181.89 when you include the stone. That is by no means a bad deal at all, but generally, when the box is on the more expensive side I tend to expect really high values. I think this box has a solid beginning and could really develop into something awesome, especially if they focus on those items that feel really, really special.
