October 2019 Ignis Vellabox Review

wine themed linen bag

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. This one has a cute wine-inspired print!

And each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:

It looks like they are also branching out to custom collaboration candles, which sounds awesome to me. Our candle this month is from one of the collabs.

Now, on to the candle!


Empathy x Vellabox California Red Wine Candle by Broken Top Candle Co, 8 oz – Retail Value $22.00

I love Broken Top Candle Co, so I am really excited to see they made the candle behind this collab with Empathy Wines. Wine and candles is totally a winning combo in my opinion! The two scent profiles made for this month were themed on red or white wine, and this is the red scent. The included card mentions notes of blackberries, chocolate, cherries, and vanilla. To my nose, it smells mostly like delicious black currants! This is a perfect scent for fall evenings especially combined with a glass of cabernet!

This is a 100% soy candle with a cotton wick. It burns nice and even and is made in Oregon.

And each Vellabox also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:


Mini Portable Corkscrew

How freaking cute! This ultra portable and very keychain appropriate corkscrew will certainly come in handy at parties and picnics.

Verdict: I loved this month’s Vellabox. Wine in any capacity makes me quite happy, and I love that they chose to do a collab with Empathy Wines and Broken Top Candle Co. I am really interested in seeing future collaborations and creative themes! As usual, the candle itself was beautifully scented and high quality. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You will likely receive the November box. From Vellabox:

Once you sign up for a monthly membership, all boxes will ship on the 5th of each month. For new subscribers we will be flexible to ensure as many customers as possible can receive the current months box.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I thought this candle was terrible– I smell none of the notes listed in the description. I also don’t drink wine due to sensitivities (it gives me a headache), so this whole collaboration missed the mark for me.

  2. I feel like I can smell and taste this candle! Thanks for a “glowing” review. 🙂
