Flicker Box Review February 2014 – Candle Subscription Box

flicker box review february 2014

Flicker Box is a candle subscription box that launched mid-2013. I tried one of their boxes in August and I loved it, so I decided to get another when I saw a spoiler for one of their February candles. We are really into candles in our house, so I love discovering new companies to try.

Sweethearts Candies

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, these sweetheart candies were also included. I thought this was such a cute touch.

Aloha Bay Candles in Romance and Love – Retail Value $6.60 for both

I love how these candles look like they have a lot of texture in them. Romance is a mix of citrus and musk while Love has a mix of plumeria and cinnamon that is very spicy, but sweet.

Sunbeam Small Red Heart Candle - Retail Value $6.99

I admit, this was the spoiler that made me want to get this month’s box. I could not resist a heart-shaped candle. It is just too cute! I love that it is made out of beeswax and has an unbleached wick.

Sunbeam Red Votive Candle – Retail Value $3.99

PurBliss in Love Potion – Retail Value $6.95

I fell in love with my Pumpkin PurBliss candle in my Vegan Presence box, so I was really excited to get another candle by them. The scents are so strong without being overbearing.

Walter & Rosie Enchanted Rose – Retail Value $10

This smells exactly as though I am smelling a bouquet of roses. It does not have that artificial smell most rose-scented candles tend to have.

Thoughts: I absolutely loved this month’s box. The selection and quality of the candles are wonderful. Thanks to subscription boxes, I’ve become very particular about the products I bring to my home and prefer natural products and especially those from smaller companies. Flicker Box does a great job of providing both these features with the candles they select. This box also makes a great gift for other candle lovers I know. The total value is over $34, making it a good value for what you pay too.

Flicker Box Review August 2013 – Candle Subscription Box

My mom has a love for candles. It’s pretty serious. When I first hears about Flicker Box which is a new candle subscription box, I had to find out more information for her. While searching for a coupon, I started talking to the owners who offered me this box to review.

The Products: Flicker Box discovers handmade, artisan candles made in the United States. 
The Shipping: US only. 

Aromacandles in Sweet Orange - Value $8

I love Sweet Orange and anything citrus for that matter which is perfect because I seem to get a lot of this scent. This particular candle actually has a general citrus scent that reminds me of sweet orange and lemon together. Delicious. I also love that the description says it is good for stress-relieving and also makes a great aphrodisiac.

One Honey Chicago Honey Co-Op Votive Candles – Value $6

These candles are so cute and my daughter loved them too. She ended up playing with them for a little while, lining them up and putting them in different boxes.

Milton + Margie’s Soy Wax Candles in Tall Grass – Value $12

This candle reminds me of dewy grass on an early summer morning which is fitting considering the scent is Tall Grass. The scent is subtle and when I used this candle, the wax barely seemed to evaporate at all, even after 6 hours or burning which is pretty impressive.

Abbey Brown Candles in Sweet Home Chicago - Value $8

This candle had the best scent for me. It was sweet and intoxicating without being overwhelming The tin is also very cute and I think I will be re-purposing it once the candle has burnt out.

Thoughts: I really loved this box.The candles smelled great and I love the fact that they are all-natural. I also feel as though they last a bit longer than our other candles which makes them even more amazing. Artisan and handmade products will always have a special place in my heart and this is why I absolutely love subscription boxes like Flicker Box!
