January 2021 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.


Sunday Candle Co Nordic Cabin, 8 oz – Retail Value $20.00

I really wanted to love this candle. The notes are perfection: winterberry, Norway pine, cedar, and roasted chestnuts. But this candle didn’t burn evenly, and ended up tunneling. I also didn’t notice a lot of scent throw from this one unless I moved it into a smaller room. Admittedly, I like A LOT of scent from my candles, but this might be a better choice for someone who likes a little something more subtle. The whole candle look is gorgeous. I adore the minimal design of the label and the whole vibe is very clean and chic.

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


Mr. B’s Necessities Peppermint Lip Balm – Retail Value $5.95

Mr. B is a great brand for candles too, so I knew I would like this balm. It was delightfully minty and just a little cooling without being TOO much on my chapped winter lips. The balm itself is a blend of almond oil, beeswax, and and coco butter, so it is very moisturizing and smooth!

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox candle wasn’t my favorite from this sub, but it was still a gorgeous scent with a beautiful presentation. The peppermint balm was a great addition to this wintery box and I have already caught Will trying to steal it a few times!

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. Just received my February candle today, which is my third Vellabox. I liked all 3 of them! However I noticed that this month the second candle for Vivire box is a rose scent which I would very much like to try! Wish they have a box that includes two 4oz candles, instead of the current Vivire which is 8oz + 4oz.

    • They usually sell some on their website. The scentlast month I could not smell. This month is great though.

  2. Ah, bummer about the performance of the candle. You’re right, it looks very chic.

  3. Hi Megan. Thank you for the review. Do you happen to have an estimate of how long the burn time is for the 8 oz candle?

  4. I had the same issues with mine. That candle smelled amazing when I put my nose to the jar, but I couldn’t smell it as it was burning.

  5. I noticed the same things about this candle. The tunneling has gotten better the more I’ve burned it, but the scent just isn’t very strong at all! When I’m right next to it, it smells nice, but I think I’ve gotten spoiled on candles that have emitted a LOT of fragrance. I agree it looks nice, though.
