February 2020 Ignis Vellabox Review

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. This one is a soft pink with a subtle pattern.

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

Now, on to the candle!


Urban Curation Candle in ‘Star Crossed’, 8 oz – Retail Value $22.00

Top: Mandarin, Middle: Cedar & Jasmine, Base: Sandalwood, Amber & Dark Musk

How incredibly lovely is this candle? I adore the minimal label design with the line drawings of the hands with stars between them. This is a sweetly romantic sort of candle. The notes here are citrus, jasmine blossoms, woods, and musk. Swoon. This candle smells less complex before you light it, but give it time to warm up and melt and this turns into quite the dreamy fragrance. It is on the stronger side, filling up my living room easily on a chilly night and adding so much coziness! The soy wax burns really evenly too.

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


TCHO Dark Chocolate Squares – Buy a box of 100 squares for $47.99

Who is ever going to be sad by a little chocolate bonus treat? Not this girl. I shared this deliciousness with a friend when we were both craving something sweet.

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox was quite lovely. The beautifully designed and scented candle might be one of my favorites ever from this sub. And they sent me chocolate too? How sweet. 

To Wrap Up:

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

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. Super late to comment, but thank you for continuing to review this subscription box. It is my first sub, the one I have had longest, and a favorite. While the value for what you pay/get isn’t extraordinary like some boxes, Vella seems like a small team with a lot of passion for their box, and the customer service and engagement is truly excellent. Plus, it has helped me discover lots of awesome small business candlemakers all over the country that I’ve ordered from for gifts, etc. I also think a lot of care goes into selecting the little add ons every month, and I always enjoy them. Really love and recommend Vellabox. 🙂
