November 2019 Ignis Vellabox Review

rustic pouch outside candle

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. This one is a very rustic burlap-type fabric.

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

Now, on to the candle!


Pears and Brandy Candle by Waxxy & Co, 8 oz – Retail Value $18.00

Fruity scents can be hit or miss for me, but I usually do indulge a little during the holidays because my husband loves them. Pears are also his favorite fruit, so how could I deny him? To my nose, this candle is too sweet, but that brandy undertone gives it a little spice and depth, which does help. When lit, it is borderline boozy! I added a few drops of sandalwood essential oil to mine while it was burning and it turned it into a much better fit for my house while still making Will happy. If you love sweet holiday scents, this will be a winner!

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

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


KIND Oats and Honey Bar, 1.2 oz – Buy a box of 15 for $9.99

Yum! This bar has just the right balance of chewy and crunch! The sweet but earthy mix of honey, oats, and grains was delicious.

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox wasn’t quite my type of candle, but I made it work. My husband actually loved this one, and I would guess most folks will, I am just weird about food smells. The candle itself was very high quality and highly fragranced. I really love it when they arrive in those amber jars because the warm light on a cold night is beautiful. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You will likely receive the December 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. Therefore, if you sign up after the 5th, but before the 20th we will ship you that month’s 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 get the larger Vellabox that includes two candles per month, and I appreciate the quality and that the fragrances match the season. This month is nice, however, the candles are exact repeats from last November, which is disappointing. Hoping for a new experience in December.

  2. I just subscribed after reading through a bunch of the reviews here and received my first box a few days ago. I’m not a huge fan of sweet scents but this candle smells fantastic, not too cloying, and totally fits for November! Adding the sandalwood is a great idea. 🙂

  3. I’ve gotten this sub for my mom before, and what I really like about it is that they send candles from different companies (in case you’re not fond of one company’s style) and that the one candle is just right for the whole month.
