June 2019 Ignis VellaBox Review
The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag.
And each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:
Now, on to the candle!
Broken Top Candle Co. Sea Salt Surf Candle, 9 oz – Retail Value $24.00
I am always hesitant about beachy scents. They always feel overly fruity or like sunscreen when what I crave is salt, sky, and water. This candle does have some of those fruity scents, but they are balanced out with some florals, woods, and a sea salt scent. I actually really like this fragrance! It feels much more sophisticated than so many other ocean/beach-themed scents I have found. The candle itself is a clean and even-burning soy wax and the wick is cotton. This candle filled my smaller office with a delicate fragrance with ease, and is not what I personally would describe as a heavily-scented burner. It is perfect for a smaller room or for a home that likes delicate hints of fragrance. I really liked the amber glass jar and the beautiful label.
And each Vellabox also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:
Goddess Garden Organics SPF 30 Facial Sunscreen – Buy a full size 3.4 oz for $14.99
Included was a little travel-sized facial sunscreen. This formula was a little difficult to fully rub in, but the clean ingredient list makes the extra work worth it!
Verdict: This month’s candle really surprised me. I dislike most beachy scents and was totally prepared to pass this one along as a gift to someone else who would appreciate it more. Happily, this smell is complex, and those notes of salt and wood make it a keeper in my book. I also think it is a very stylish candle and look forward to burning it in my home! For $20 we received $24 worth of candle value.
