Opening The Box

Happy almost-Spring—who else is welcoming their Margot Elena Subscription Box as the first bright and blossoming signs of the season? This box is positively jam-packed with dancing notes of fragrance that come from a whopping 10 products, including some that are new and some that are exclusive.

Here's the list of "mood-brightening favorites," with pricing listed. Ready to get into it?

Here's What's Inside

TokyoMilk Dead Sexy Parfum Crema, 2.5 oz — Retail Value $22

There's something incredibly nostalgic about pulling a floral-and-skull TokyoMilk item out of my box, because I want to say my first exposure to TokyoMilk—back before I was ever aware of its sister lines or the larger Margot Elena umbrella—was this scent. And it was in the early 2000s, when skulls were on everything. We all know scents can transport us through time and place; I didn't know skulls could too.

The actual fragrance is surprisingly light considering the smoldering branding; it's subtle and with a woody mix of florals and vanilla. As with all Margot Elena scents, it's layered and evolves as you wear it—I love their parfum cremas for their longevity throughout the day, as well as how my body heat guides the fragrance through its different iterations.

Infinite She Bold Bright Beautiful Shea Butter Soap, 3.5 oz — Retail Value $12

When the Infinite She line was first introduced I didn't feel it was "for" me—it seemed the scents and branding were geared toward a younger audience. But I've since been changing my tune. I mean, it is a really great access point to Margot Elena with more straightforward fragrances and design, but now I think of it more as for a lighter mood or a more spry version of myself, just like all the other lines tap into different selves of mine. Am I taking it too far? Ha! This shea butter soap is for everyone! I think shea butter soap always has a strong "shea butter" scent to it, which I associate with clean simplicity—and this one has vitamin E and coconut oil in the mix, too. But it also has notes of "Sea Salt Mist, Cypress, and Amber" in its aroma, which I would not have been able to identify without the help of the notes Margot Elena provides on their website, but it's mild and pleasant.

Exclusive! TokyoMilk Boxed Perfumed Luminary, 6 oz — Listed Retail Value $24

I recognize the bee on this candle box and tin from the Honey & the Moon line, but in the case of this candle, it's just for decoration. The scent of the box-exclusive candle is unidentified, but it reminds me a bit of the Lollia Relax scent we've received in past products. This candle is a box-exclusive size, but you can find a smaller one here.

Archive Poet at Heart Hand Creme, 4 oz — Retail Value $24

I'm come to really appreciate Archive scents for the way they're often grounded in aroma layers that may be traditionally thought of as masculine. Actually my entire family, including my young children, seems drawn to this line in particular (though they don't know the lines, they just like what they like). This one is lightened up with lavender and rosehip notes, but there's still a woodsy depth to it. Love.

This handcreme is listed in the booklet as exclusive, but that must've been a misprint because it's available for purchase here.

The creme is nice and thick, with high absorption, and longevity to its moisturizing qualities. It's perfect!

TokyoMilk Make Me Plush Eau de Parfum, 1 fl oz — Retail Value $48

Now this is a floral perfume I can get behind! It's warm and light and powdery, but being that it's a TokyoMilk offering, you can count on it for having depth and not being too saccharine. Actually as I sit here trying to put what's so good about it into words, I'm picking up on something new with each sniff. I also visited the reviews of this eau de parfum, and someone mentioned its similarity to Honey & the Moon. I wouldn't have caught that similarity, but I sense it now. Relevant, because up next is...

New! TokyoMilk Honey & the Moon Salt Soak, 10 oz — Retail Value $12

My first exposure to the Honey & the Moon scent line was through this box—we've been sent a parfum crema and an eau de parfum with this scent in past years. I can see some finding this many inclusions of one scent feeling heavy-handed but I love it so much that I welcome it! My mum uses the crema and I kept the parfum, and now here it is in the form of their new salt soak. Different textures of its fragrance take the lead in its different forms, but they all have a chocolatey, honeyed richness that I can't get enough of. Here's their full line of Honey & the Moon fragrances.

Infinite She Vibrant Shower Gel, 5.5 fl oz — Retail Value $16

Our second Infinite She inclusion of the month, here we have a shower gel. I have a bit of a backlog of Margot Elena shower gels and actually just cracked open the Summer 2023 shower gel with another one in the hatch. To me, this is not a problem! I love having a beautiful supply of bath products on hand, including for the reason that they make wonderful last-minute gifts should the need arise. This shower gel's scent notes indicate Japanese Yuzu + Vetiver, and they manifest as bright and happy to the nose. I love how in the steamy context of the shower the aromas take on new versions and fill the entire bathroom with goodness.

TokyoMilk A Little Something, Believe, and Zero Clucks Greeting Cards — Retail Value $5.50 each

Our latest edition of sparkly greeting cards are cheeky as always, and have a range of occasions. A birthday or celebration one, an encouragement one (or it could even apply as a sympathy card), and a just for fun one that would be fun to send to a girlfriend.

The Cottage Greenhouse Cucumber & Honey Lip Butter — Retail Value $8

Our lips continue to be dry and chapped over here, so we always welcome a new lip balm. I've never used cucumber-scented lip balm before, and it's an interesting change from the norm!

Exclusive! Happy Home Wick Trimmer — Retail Value $20

Last up, the utterly delightful "home" item we were sent (yay!) was this candle wick trimmer. I rejoiced when I unpacked it, because I am otherwise one to trim wicks with my fingers, getting sooty black fingernails every time. Engraved in one of the arms is "all things beautiful," such a nice sentiment and a pretty piece to keep on my mantle near where I keep a candle parked.

This wick trimmer is not indicated as exclusive to the Discovery Box, but I don't see it on the website right now. Keep an eye out!

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $59.99 + $6.95 shipping to the contiguous United States.

ACTIVE DEAL: Limited Time Only! Get 10% off a minimum $45 purchase for new subscriptions!
CODE: MSA10

Value Breakdown: The typical Margot Elena Box includes about 8 items, making for a full and good-smelling delivery. Spring 2024, however, included 10 items (that's counting the 3 cards as one)! It was a jam-packed shipment this time around, with a varied spread of products that have almost all been put to use immediately under my roof. The total value in this delivery is $202.50, which includes 1-2 things that are exclusive to subscribers—I'm not sure of the exact exclusives because the info card had some inconsistencies with what's available on the website right now.

Key Takeaways

I loved everything about the Spring 2024 box! It had something from every category, a surprising home item, and so many light and bright scents to help me ring in Spring.

Hi there, I'm Christen. I am all sorts of things:

🌳 a writer who loves to convey feeling

🌲 a mother who wants to have just as much fun as my kids do

🌳 an outdoors-lover who's achieved #1000hoursoutside with my family

🌲 a low-maintenance self-carer

🌳 a general hungry person with an unstoppable sweet tooth

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in colors and silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for dancing to live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

...and doing it all with energy, delight, and jokes along the way.

Another great box! Loved getting two Tokyo Milk perfumes, even if one was in cream form. The wick scissors were a great touch, and something i don’t already have!

It’s always a lovely box but I skipped this month. I have too much lotion and perfumes.

Candle & wick trimmer,Yeah! For a period, I felt the candle was an alternative novelty item and missed it when it wasn’t included. I’m impressed that they keep coming up with beautiful, practical novelty items. I hope the next box has both novelty item and candle again Like Christen, I’m finding myself with a plethora of shower gels. All very nice, but somehow they last me far longer than 3 months.
