September 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.


Treehouse Co. Candle in ‘Mist’, 8 oz – Buy a 6 oz candle for $20.00

My first thought when I opened this candle was that the fragrance was so soft and delicate! It combines a watery feel with flower petals, but also somehow smells so clean, fresh, and a little fruity too. I was worried the scent wouldn’t be very bold when the candle was lit, but I was wrong. For such a soft scent it certainly knows how to fill a room but in a cozy and quiet sort of way. This one isn’t going to overpower your space, but you will 100% notice the fragrance. It does feel a little springy to me, but I am also someone who really dislikes some of the more food heavy fall scents, so I am honestly pretty pleased with this as an alternative to something that smells like a pumpkin spice latte. This smell makes me want to curl up with a book and relax.

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


Lunchskins Compostable + Unbleached Paper Sandwich Bags, 5 bags and 6 stickers – Buy 50 bags for $4.99

These are such a genius alternative to plastic bags. Even though I am eating lunches at home right now, Will frequently is on the go, and I do enjoy making lunches for him. He is a deli meat kind of guy, and these bags are perfect even if he hates avocado!

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox sent a scent that reminded me of rain and flower petals. Sure, it wasn’t exactly what I would consider a fall scent, but it is a comforting fragrance that feels cozy and clean! I am very happy with it. I also thought the sandwich bags were a nice little bonus and I will certainly put them to good use. 

To Wrap Up:

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

Once you sign up for a monthly membership, all boxes will ship on the 5th of each month.

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 love this month’s box! I live in Seattle, so it’s fun to discover a local maker. The Vivere scent sounds good, to perhaps I’ll order that with the code. I am also working from home, but trying to be more conscious about my plastic use, so the bags are a good reminder and I’ll use them as I have the opportunity.
