December 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.


Calyan Wax Co Evergreen + Eucalyptus Candle, 7.2 oz – Retail Value $20.00

Yesssss. This is exactly the sort of cold weather candle I just love. Imagine the scents of cold pine needles, rich cedarwood, eucalyptus, and an earthy base of patchouli. Delightful. It is crisp and cold but still rich and warm, and speaks to this season beautifully! This isn’t a knock your socks off strong scent but it mingles and fills a room softly and still noticeably, complimenting your space rather than overpowering it. I always notice it the most at the top of my stairs where the fragrance collects from the downstairs living room. Wonderful!

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


Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter

Our extra this month is a cute copper-colored cookie cutter in that classic gingerbread shape. I have been considering making cookies this Christmas (literally, I never do) and this might just be the little thing I need to make it happen. Does anyone have a good gingerbread recipe??

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox candle was a hit! I love the blend of cool evergreen needles and earthy patchouli! The little cookie cutter extra was a brilliant and totally on-theme touch. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you’ll receive the January 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 just subscribed yesterday but they said my box will be December, not January 2021. FYI. Maybe if you want a different scent, wait a few more days!

  2. I’m not a fan of pine scents so I gifted this to my mom & she loved it! You don’t even need to light the candle; the scent is there when you walk by. Also, Vellabox has amazing customer support!
