May 2020 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:

Included in our Vellabox was an info card with extra details on the brand and the scent that is in this month’s box.

Now, on to the candle.


Roam Botanicals Candle in ‘Cactus & Jade’, 8 oz – Retail Value $24.00

I know this brand! It used to be sold at my local Anthropologie (with a different label look) and I bought a few of them. This is confirmed by the info card which says as much but also mentions they were sold by Martha Stewart, too. Fancy! This candle smells exactly like something that would be sold at Anthro, and the scent is really strong within the first few minutes of lighting it. It is a great scent! A blend of cactus flower, cypress, woods, and herbs with a slightly sweet twist. It smells very clean and elegant. Roam Botanicals is no longer making candles (bummer!) so I am happy to have one from their last batches to make my home office smell amazing.

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


Shasta Daisy Seeds

Will has been on a seed kick this year, which is why half of our yard is covered in Morning Glory seeds! I find daisies endlessly charming, so I passed these to him to plant in the side yard for some cut flowers later in the season.

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox felt like it came straight from one of my fave stores, Anthropologie! I loved this candle and it is exactly the sort of scent I would burn in my home any day of the week! The daisy seeds were a very cute and seasonally appropriate accent.

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 can’t wait to get my June box! I joined in April and loved both boxes received so far. The scents are amazing, long lasting, complex, and they rival the $60 candles I have purchased in the past [I know…who spends $60 on a candle? The candle-obsessed, like me, that’s who. I clearly have a problem.]

  2. Vellabox is one of my favorite subs. Thanks for the great reviews of this box!

  3. Seeds are such a fun thing to get, This year, more than any other, I’ve been loving trying to grow many things from seed. Lots of failures (3 packs of daisy seeds and they all die early into the seedling stage), but several successes, too!

    What is Will having success with by seed?

    • He has Morning Glory literally growing EVERYWHERE. And marigolds for the chickens. And he is really into onion starts this year. Obsessively!

      • I recently planted some morning glories and I hope I have good luck with them. Moonflowers, too!

        And how lucky the chickens are to have goodies planted just for them!

  4. No opinion on them sending you a candle from a defunct company? Do you mind receiving candles that you can’t go out and purchase if you really like them bc they are out of business or out of production? Step it up MSA!

    • The company has now pivoted to skincare. And this was a special collab with Vellabox to bring a really great scent to subscribers. At the end of the day, I got a high-quality candle with a scent I love. So I feel pretty good about that!

      I am going to add that to the review to be helpful!

    • … having a bad day Blu?? Great review Megan .. “no stepping up required”… wow 😳

  5. This was my first month and I loved it. I’m sad to hear Roam is no longer making candles! This scent is wonderful and I would have totally repurchased.

    • Hi Carrie— Bri from Vellabox here! So happy to hear you loved the candle! Just wanted to let you know we have candles from past boxes available for repurchase on our website— Both candles from May are available ☺️

      • Good to know. Thank you!
